(song) Not Just Skeletons

by Devon E Mattys

I've got a little ghost that tails me
Everywhere I go, she trails me
Bobbing low behind me,
I think that she can mind-read:
She whispers low my greatest fears
And tells me what I hate to hear
(then scolds me).

"Of course I know I am," I scream,
"Of course I know I am; my dreams
have told me."

Through the dark, those stormy nights
I wanted you to kiss me, Light,
(and hold me).

But we were never meant to be
(Our barrier: society.)
What kind of life could I still lead
Once they took you away from me?

(I am flesh
I am blood
I am mortal
I am lust
I am love
I am carnal)

I've got a little ghost that knows me--
Everywhere she's been, I'm going.


Author's Note: these are more lyrics, which are often better when put with the melodies
