lyrics

GHOST TOWN BLUES

So black was the night
Not a soul to be seen under the streetlight
Heaven’s been shut, it’s closing down
So what were you thinking?
All alone in this ghost town tonight

CHORUS
So I said… Come on, ready when you want me
No fear, keep the karma coming
I’m here, standing on my own two feet
Just keep on looking at me
You ain’t got nothing on me

So empty was the place
With a smell of tobacco and a sour taste
Darkness fell, in the blink of an eye
So what were you doing?
All alone with the bad guy that night

CHORUS

I’ve been walking for days
And I’ve somehow lost the way
All I hear are little voices say
Go back (go back, go back, go back)
Go back (go back go back go back)

So heavy was the night
As the shadows creep under the moonlight
It’s only a dream, til I open my eyes
So how did I get here?
Deep in the heart of this ghost town, tonight

CHORUS
