“SEEING GHOSTS”

© 2016 Melissa Hogan. All rights reserved.

I can hear the silence, it’s so very loud
I’m blinded by the screams of an invisible crowd
I’m singing the melody of an unwritten song
Life is downside up since you’ve been gone

Chorus:
Colors changed, they turned to black and white
Memories faded in the middle of the night
I’m running in place with my eyes wide closed
I see your face, but I’m seeing ghosts

Watching the sunrise in the middle of the night
The backside of the mirror reflects the most light
All that’s right seems wrong
Life is downside up since you’ve been gone

Chorus:
Colors changed, they turned to black and white
Memories faded in the middle of the night
I’m running in place with my eyes wide closed
I see your face, but I’m seeing ghosts

Bridge:
Seeing ghosts
Only ghosts

I feel your whisper inside my soul
I’ve lost my youth, but I’ll never grow old
You’re living a sunset, I’m watching the dawn
It’s quiet here, but I’m singing this song
Life is downside up since you’ve been gone

Life is downside up since you’ve been gone
Since you’ve been gone
