I Only Ever Loved Your Ghost - Lyrics

Take these scars, have your fun
Either way love gets a bullet for her gun
Just like eclipses love the sun
Left unexposed
I only ever loved your ghost

Gentle words, sad recluse
Forceful hearts tied like a train to its caboose
Just like a hangman ties his noose
Love juxtaposed
I only ever loved your ghost

Tried so hard, what remains?
Keep my letters, keep my books, forget my names
I'll keep your pictures in their frames
You loved them most
I only ever loved your ghost

One more time, here we go
I can't face the face I asked you not to show
It's best for lovers not to know
Than sadly boastIt's always better loving ghosts
Walking mile after mile
Chasing romance, should've settled for a smile
These dreams were just too big so I'll propose a toast
To ever only loving ghosts
