Ghost, ghost I know you live within me feel as you fly
In thunderclouds above the city into one that I
Loved with all that was left within me until we tore in two
Now wings and rings and there's so many waiting here for you

And she was born in a bottle rocket, 1929
With wings that ring around a socket, right between her spine
All drenched in milk and holy water, pouring from the sky
I know that she will live for ever, she won't ever die

And she goes and now she knows
She'll never be afraid
To watch the morning paper blow
Into a hole where no one can escape

And one day in New York City baby a girl fell from the sky
From the top of a burning apartment building fourteen stories high
And when her spirit left her body how it split the sun
I know that she will live for ever all goes on and on and on

And she goes and now she knows
She'll never be afraid
To watch the morning paper blow
Into a hole where no one can escape

MANGUM, JEFF
