Now you are my beloved ghost
And here I'll wait for you to sing
And we will have eternity
A promise to keep haunting me
This wine from my veins
This gift we'll take

The sky is ours to keep tonight
Together in this silent sleep
We are the mist that fills the air
Lie still, just be with me

This wine from my veins
This gift we'll take
And I'll be the kiss, the gun
We'll be draining their blood again

Embrace the rest of me
We'll be racing through the night again
Embrace the rest of me
Then we'll feast on them
Celebrating

I'm not alone
I can feel your eyes on me
I'm not alone
Your soul for all the world to see
Denied another day
Life took you away
I'll love you just the same

'Cause you're my beloved ghost
And here I'll wait for you to sing
And we will have eternity
A promise to keep haunting me
The sky is ours to keep tonight
Together in this silent sleep
We are the mist that fills the air
Lie still, just be with me

I'm not alone
I can feel your eyes on me
I'm not alone
Your soul for all the world to see

    General Commenta promise is for both Miggy and Calde's grandfathers or "Lolo"s. they both died around the same time, so it's about the love their grandfathers had for their grandmothers and family. bam.
