Wish to inform you as of tomorrow we're merely ghosts in the memory of shadow
A distant whisper, a scent in the air, a passing train in the thoughts of a dead man
May I remind you that people live here? We could sure use your help on this one
“We're really sorry, there's just nothing we can do.”

I'm not familiar with this story. Will you remind me how it ends?
I never heard its happy ending. Don't you tell me there isn't one
They're inside now- someone's behind you.
Close your eyes, child, no one's gonna hurt you.
You're really sorry. I know there was nothing you could do.

And we don't have much longer- with the swing of a blade
What's taken for granted will be taken away
But when soon this is over and you've forgotten our names
We'll come home to remind you of your greatest mistake

Call your dogs off, put your knives down. We don't now, nor ever, want to fight you
If you're determined to do your worst, then you've gotta know that we never tried to stop you
Just not like this- not in front of them- you wouldn't put a man down in front of his children?
I need a moment with my son- just let me say goodbye

I'm not familiar with this story. You've gotta tell me how it ends!
I never heard its happy ending, now you're telling me there isn't one?
They're inside now- someone's behind you
Close your eyes, child, mama won't leave you
You're really sorry, I know, there was nothing you could do

I fell in love with the sound of their voices. The dead color their songs with the truth.
To walk alone among the chorus of the haunted, to hear the stories that they've told from their youth
To know the faces in the shadows and the darkness- the merely ghosts in the world beyond our view
I fell in love with the sound of their voices. The dead color their songs with the truth.

Real love is hard to find and your love is real to me.
