The Ghost Inside Our House
We saw a ghost inside our house, or was it wishful thinking? Oh, God, don’t leave us by ourselves, or we’re bound to take up drinking. I said, “Please send us a miracle, so I know that there is meaning.” You said, “I think that it’s a miracle just to be breathing. So live on, baby live on. Live on, baby, live on.”
Packed up my clothes in a grocery bag, I’m going to find the creator…An old man in the clouds or a happy little alien. Whoever it is, I need to thank her. And even though I don’t know God, I’m happy with the mystery. And I’m certain that I feel it every time that you sing to me… Songs, you say life is like a song…Songs… hummable songs.
I watched you sleep until 5am, cuz I wanna be part of your dreamin’. Oh, Love, don’t leave me by myself, or I’m bound to lose my meaning. We’ll start a little family and call it our religion…Hunt for ghost inside our house, cuz we’ll never give up wishin’ that we live on, babe, we live on.In our song, our hummable song.
