THE GHOST OF DEL REY

The ghost of Del Rey has risen today
Walking over the rocks and down by the lake
Treading the track she had chosen to take
For those last few steps of the life that she led
She don’t come back any nearer than this

Seeing her there at this cold address
Where she floats on time in the morning air
Showing herself to the ones that care
Sends shivers by when she shows her neck
She don’t come back any nearer than this

When you need some air - just take a breath
Some things are free – don’t wait for me – I can’t get enough
And when you need something - ask the price of it
I don’t make enough to pay you back - only the interest

The ghost of Del Rey is leaving today
Having given her best she dissolves in the dust
Finished with all that remained of her faith
She removes herself like she’s seen a ghost
She don’t come back any nearer than this

When you need some air - just take a breath
Some things are free – don’t wait for me – I can’t get enough
And when you need something - ask the price of it
I don’t make enough to pay you back - only the interest
When you need some air - just take a breath
Some things are free – don’t wait for me – I can’t get enough
