I’ve been down
Wandering past 2nd Street and looking at the ghosts
Of you and me and thinking back on all those memories
Of how we used to be

I’ve been hearing
I hear those voices over the noises of the breaking glass
And all those plans we had to get us through,
They’re never coming true

I hope and hope
That you won’t forget
I’m hoping
Hope you know that

I can clearly see
The ghosts of you and me
And I’m a moved on memory

And you’re still alive
And I’m still getting by
On these dead end streets
The ghosts of you and me

I’m still talking, talk of what we’ll do
To the ghosts of me and you
And I’m still looking back into the past
When we were all we had

I hope and hope
That you won’t forget
I’m hoping
Hope you know that

I hope you won’t forget
I hope you know that I’ll always regret
Those things I’ve said
I hope you know that I can clearly see

The ghosts of you and me
And you’re still alive
And I’m still getting by
On these dead end streets
The ghosts of you and me

    General CommentI love this song. It reminds me very much of when I broke up with me boyfriend and everything I did reminded me of the way things were when we were still together. That's basically what the song is about, looking back and not being able to forget about memories of a lost love. p.s - I can't believe no one commented on this song yet!

    General CommentThis is probably the best song off the new cd. It's all avout moving on with life, but not forgetting the past. The narrator's friend left him...and he's walking where they used to go together and remember all the great times they had.

    General Commentis it just me, or does it sound like he sais 'dead head' not 'dead end'. but less than jake always shove random 'h's before words, so it might just be pronounced 'dead h'end'. for instance 'h'emergency' (TSSYS)) and 'h'insecurities' (plastic cup politics). part of the reason i love less than jake so much... this song is the best! love less than jake forever more...
