Ghost    (video)

 

C      G   Em                D           C

    I keep going to the river to pray,

                G    Em                            D                C

'cause I need something that can wash all the pain.

              G            Em                       D              C

And at most, I'm sleeping all these demons away,

                  G             Em                   D               C

but your ghost, the ghost of you, it keeps me awake.

 

                                      Em

1. My friends had you figured out, yeah, they saw what's inside of you,

                                 C                                          Am

    trying to hide in another you, but your evil was coming through.

                                   Em

     These guys sitting on the wall, they watch every move I make,

                               C                                                          Am

    bright light living in the shade, you go hard, makes the spirit shake.

 

G              Am                                       Em

    I had to go through hell to prove I'm not insane,

                   C

    had to meet the devil just to know his name.

                                      D

    And that's where my love was burning, yeah, it's still burning.

 

+  CHORUS (2x)

 

                               Em

2. Each time that I think you go, I turn around and you're creeping in,

                          C                                                Am

    and I let you under my skin 'cause I love living in a sin.

                             Em

    Boy, you never told me true love was going to hurt,

                              C                                        Am

    true pain that I don't deserve, truth is that I never learn.

 

+  CHORUS (2x)

 

   C                                - G

+     Give up the ghost,        give up the ghost,

Em                            - D

Em                            - D

    give up the ghost,        no more haunting, baby !
