City Ghosts

We have a number of songs on our new album that are based on real life events. City Ghosts is a song about a broken relationship between friends, then you don’t see that person anymore. Until one day when you bump into that person and you both startle like you’ve seen a ghost. That is your City Ghost. We all have them.

This drawing was done by Brooke, Tonya’s sister and our new bandmate!

These are the lyrics:

Aha . . . Aha . . .
We lost each other to this dark energy
It was a hallow look, a cold vibe.
It’s our broken chemistry.
Tall buildings, dim doorways
Both jump and slip away.
My thoughts race.
My heart beats.
I tremble and retreat.
Aha . . . Aha . . .
Stuck in between,
too engrossed.
Frightening each other,
like city ghosts.
We’re stuck in between,
too engrossed.
Frightening each other,
like city ghosts.
You, hoped I didn’t see
and I tried not to see,
see you look right through me.
You and me, we’re like a
secret, haunted paradox.
You try to avoid me,
reflections come and gone.
And now we will disappear
in a midair, afterthought.
It’s hard to believe that,
once we both cared a lot.
 We float by, covered eyes
both staring at the ground.
Your walking through the walls,
dragging down the halls,
every chain you pulled apart,
when you break my heart.
Aha . . . Aha . . .
Ghosts move on,
when they’re tired
of playing the game.
Let’s move on,
when we’re tired
of playing the game.
Ghosts move on,
when they’re tired
of playing the game
Let’s move on,
when we’re tired
of playing the game.
