I don't pick up the mail
I don't pick up the phone
I don't answer the door
I just soon be alone
I don't keep this place up
I just keep the lights down
I don't live in these rooms
I just rattled around

I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm shadow upon these walls
As quietly as a mouse
I haunt these halls
I'm just a whisper of smoke
I'm all that's left of two hearts on fire
That once burned out of control
You took my body and soul
I'm just a ghost in this house

I don't care if it rains
I don't care if it's clear
I don't mind stayin' near
There's another ghost here
He sits down in your chair
And he shines with your light
And he lays down his head
On your pillow at night

I'm just a ghost in this house
I'm just a shadow upon these walls
I'm living proof of the damage heartbreak does
I'm just a whisper of smoke
I'm all that's left of two hearts on fire
That once burned out of control
You took my body and soul
I'm just a ghost in this house

That once burned out of control
You took my body and soul
I'm just a ghost in this house
