How would you know?
When everything round you's changing like the weather,
Of a big black storm
And who would you turn to?
Had I a ghost, a shadow at the most
Would you let me know?
Cause I don't want to,
To trouble your mind with a childish design of how it all should go.
But I love you so,
When it all comes clear, when the wind it settles, I'll be here, you know.

Cause you said ours were the lighthouse towers
The sun upon that place
Darling I'll grow weary, happy still
With just the memory of your face

Gracious goes the ghost of you
And I will never forget the plans and the
Silhouettes you drew here and
Gracious goes the ghost of you
My dear

How would you know?
When everything around you's bruised and battered
Like the cold night storm.
And who would you turn to?
Had I a ghost, a shadow at the most
Would you tell me so?
Cause I, I adore you so
When it all comes clear, the wind it settles, I'll be here, you know.

Cause you said ours were the lighthouse towers
The sun upon that place
Darling I'll grow weary, happy still
With just the memory of your face

Gracious goes the ghost of you
And I will never forget the plans and the
Silhouettes you drew here and
Gracious goes the ghost of you
My dear

Gracious goes the ghost of you
And I will never forget the plans and the
Silhouettes you drew here and
Gracious goes the ghost of you
My dear
