this is a rough version of a song that means a lot of things
i'll make a better version eventually
i'll make things better eventually, too.


there was a ghost last night hiding in my wall
i tried to let it out
i couldn't understand its name
through its moans and cries and shouts
i felt it brush against my hand
i recognized the touch
upon my skin my lips my tongue
i didn't think i missed you that much

i breathed it in and breathed it out
your ghost filled up my lungs
and mine decided to join too
with old forgotten songs
that we had shared in other lifetimes
when i could hold your heart
but i didn't see the open window
and your ghost drifted out into the dark

come back
come back
come back
come back
come back...

but you can't come back
and you won't come back
