Lyrics

You Built Another Ghost
(C) 2012 All Words and Music by Warren Hein

Your reputation preceded me
I missed the tweet on your sick history
You bled me of the strength I had
I never dreamed I could ever feel this sad
It was no slip but a nasty nasty fall
I was sucker punched with no love left at all

Your house was splendid with every ocean view
But you left me roaming from room to room
An apparition haunting your halls
You were stunned when I couldn't walk through walls
You duped me I had no self defense
What you lacked in honesty I lacked in confidence

You built another ghost
I finally learned you're no heavenly host
You built another ghost
My ashes blow in the wind as I choke
You built another ghost

My chains lay on the ground
I'm free from your touch free from your sound
But when I walk I stumble
When I talk I mumble
I still aimlessly float

Very original song expressing the disillusionment of a cast off lover. The lyrics are extremely clever and original, keeping the ghost metaphor consistent through the whole song. Love the reference to walking through walls. "What you lacked in honesty I lacked in confidence" another great line. This song is a good warning to check out the reputation of someone before you get deeply involved with him/her. Excellent vocals, instrumentation, mix and production values.
