Ghost on the streets today doorways of Jackson Square
In tinsel and tap shoes Mardi Gras beads in her hair
And down to the graveyard she wrung out her hands
As if he will meet her all day she stands

So don't leave me and I know you're justified
So don't leave me 'cause a part of you in me died

We wish ourselves beautiful we cry in the night
And it's not the love you feared but the fall from the height
My personal ledges afraid to look down
My crepe paper bridges enough water to drown

So don't leave me and I know you're justified
So don't leave me 'cause a part of you in me died, died

And I see the lonely souls searchin'
But before the heartbreak rose
Draw the curtain

I'm a ghost on the streets today surrounded by eyes
I feel them peer through me and my harlequin disguise
If it makes you feel better come join me awhile
'Cause love in my open arms there's love in my spirit's smile

So don't leave me and I know you're justified
So don't leave me 'cause a part of you in me died, died, died

Hey hey yeah
