Lyrics

The ghost of that girl

Standing at the edge of the abyss   Wonder should I return to this world?
How did I get to this   Followed 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.
