The ghost of that girl Standing at the edge of the abyssWonder should I return to this world? How did I get to thisFollowed the ghost of that girl.
She reached up from the depths Hands grasping, constricting my breath, She dragged me down Dragged me so far, I floundered around Like a dying fish eyes bulging in the dark.
Oh, the ghost of that girl The ghost of that girl, The bubbles in the water Swallowed her in their swirl.
She screeched from the steps Voice rasping, cursing me to death, She called me out Called me out, For the wrong that I'd done When I saw her again she was in a shroud.
Oh, the ghost of that girl The ghost of that girl, The bubbles in the water Swallowed her in their swirl. Her ghost said "don't you remember?" But how could I forget? She stepped out from the jetty Though I was not there I can still see it yet. ?Oh ghost, won't you surrender When all of my guns are laid down? I still feel the tremor My heart aches, it breaks Making me want to jump in and drown.
Oh, the ghost of that girl The ghost of that girl, The bubbles in the water Swallowed her in their swirl. We were young and foolish Love's powerful and strong, I said I loved you, then I left you It was hurtful and wrong. I cried at your Service Screamed it was my fault, Ignored all the pity Blanked out all rational thought.
Oh, the ghost of that girl The ghost of that girl The bubbles in the water Spell her name in their swirl.
