lyrics

Waved to an old friend
At the late night bar
She looked right through me
Like a shadow in the dark

Called up an old buddy
To get a beer
He picked up the phone
But he did not seem to hear

Well I realized things weren’t right
When a stranger said to me
Life wouldn’t mean nothing
Without ghosts like me

Just then I recognized him
Another old friend
Who drowned when we were kids
Way back when

He said

Living with ghosts, it’s gonna bring you down
You’ve gotta sing them a lullaby
Show them you love ‘em while your heart still pounds
Before they take you to the afterlife
Listen closely you can hear them sing it goes

Ooh
oooh ooh
Ooh
oooh ooh
Don’t ya look nice
Don’t ya look nice
Ooh
oooh ooh
Ooh
oooh ooh
Don’t ya look nice
Don’t ya look nice

Ever since that day
It ain’t been the same
I get premonitions
Hear voices call my name

If something haunts your dreams
You better make it your best friend
Or spend the rest of your short life
Trying to make amends

I said

Chorus
