Ring Around The Ghost

from by The Luxury

/

lyrics

The tireless sun is hard to take
Pull up the blankets, hide your face
The “song that knew just what to say”
You never learned to sing it

On a sea of sugar she belongs
Far too sweet for mortal tongues
She’s at the end of every song, and still you sing along

Oh lovely, you seem lonely
And I wish I was your one and only
I got sweet words, believe me
Oh lovely, you seem lonely to me now

Still playing ring around the ghost
Still dancing with the devil that you know
You tread along this narrow street,
Never turn, never speak

Slip the leash around your soul
Nobody says they want control
But we’re still tugging at the ends
The best and worst of friends

We are so lovely, you seem lonely
And I wish I was your one and only
I got sweet words, believe me
But you never really made it easy on me now
