lyrics

Oooo, oooo...
Oh, what a pity -- change is the only thing constant in my life.
I tried to tie you down, but you won't stay.
Who's takin' chances now on things you buried long ago?
But you don't know...

That I'll sail this ship to shore,
And I'll face you like a man,
And I'll make you think I'm fine
'cause I can.

God save the messenger when I find out
That you've sunk your teeth into the night and let your sunshine down.
Dreams go up in flames, and my hopes hang in the gallows.
My song that used to sound so sweet cries out a murder of crows.

And I'll sail this ship to shore,
And I'll take it like a man,
And I'll make you think I'm fine
'cause I can
Live a lie,
Live a lie,
Live a lie.

Oh, I would never call
To say I told you so.
What you are to me --
The ghost of who I was,
The ghost you're meant to be.

There's blood on the moon tonight and smoke high in the sky --
The kind that used to make me close my eyes.
What started as the truth became a good old fashioned lie.
I'm back against the wall,
You're back to throwing knives.

And I'll sail this ship to shore,
And I'll face you like a man,
And I'll make you think I'm fine
'cause I can
Live a lie,
Live a lie.
Oh yeah you live a lie.

Oh, I would never call
To say I told you so.
What you are to me --
The ghost of who I was,
The ghost you're meant to be.

Oooo, oooo.
