Ghost

Ella HendersonBuy this song

I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake 
My friends I can figure out
You're the soul that's inside of you
It's rock hard in another you
But your evil was coming through
 These eyes sitting on the wall
Well they watch every move I make Bright light taking in the shape You go hard, makes my spirit shake

(Ooh) I had to go through hell to prove I'm not insane Had to meet the devil just to know his name

And that's when my love was burning Yeah it's still burning

I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake 
I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake 
Each time that I think you go
I turn around and you're creeping in
And I let you another skin
'Cause I love living in the sin

Oh you never told me
True love was gonna hurt
True pain, it's own desert True face that I never learned

(Ooh) I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake 
I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake 
Give up the ghost Give up the ghost Give up the ghost Stall the haunting baby

Give up the ghost Give up the ghost Give up the ghost No more haunting baby

I keep going to the river 
I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake 
I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake
