Description
This is a newer take of my song "Ghost"...Still a work in progress though!...I'm trying to get a "bedroom album" sound going on with this: Think Bruce Springsteen's "Nebraska"...Also noteworthy: I've always loved Haiku and have been on a roll with utilizing it as a songwriting tool; I find it brings out the best in me as far as whittling thoughts down to their essence....This is my first attempt at using some of that in a song.

Lyrics
All the wishes in the world
fall deaf among the stars
I am just a ghost made of
memories and scars...
And I am in between
what will be and what has been
CHORUS
I don't know what it means
I don't know how it ends
I don't know where to go from here.

Dove off the deep end
Couldn't sink and didn't swim
Now I don't think that I can stay
One more week, one more day..

Cause all my best intentions
Fell upon deaf ears
I am just a ghost
Made of all my hopes and fears.
And I am in between
what will be and what has been

CHORUS

I'd like to wish we'd never met
I try every day to forget
It hurts more than you'll ever know
But I know...I've got to go...

All the wishes in the world
Fall silent to the floor
I am just a ghost
Nothing less and nothing more
Waiting in between
what will be and what has been

CHORUS...

Glad you like delivery :-)
...I often crowd a bunch of words in, and tried to go really sparse on this song; I think it's because I started writing Haiku as a form of lyric-writing exercise - Haiku just seems to bring out the best in me, makes me cut things down to their essence...Thanks for listening and commenting!

Good song
Hi Lori. Good song, well sung. I like your voice a lot and and I enjoyed the minimalist "bedroom" approach. As you pointed out, some slight clipping but it didn't really detract from the enjoyment. Thanks for the post. Take care, Peter.
