A young man lacking sense
sells his soul to circumstance
his movements indecise
he does not know that it will cost his life
she’s a harlot
boisterous and rebellious
her husband gone this fathers daughter
leads the young man to the slaughter

In shadows you sleep
too careless to see
the things that matter most
so much that when you
are faced with the truth
you look like you’ve seen a ghost

a young man lacking sense
pushes on to consequence
he lives to feed his flesh
the scavengers will clean up what is left
she’s a harlot
simple and persuasive
with seduction she always gets her way
her bed will be his early grave

but I still know the shadows evidence the glow

I’ll only be your ghost
I’ll only get so close
I’ll only be your ghost
In shadows we sleep
I’ll only be your ghost
Too careless to see
I’ll only be your Ghost
when faced with the truth
I’ll only be your Ghost
