"Romance of the Southern Spirit" as written by and Russell Cogdell....
Every kiss is a goodbye kiss
And every touch is momentary
Like trying to hold her ghost
Yes she disappears at sunrise
Some times the past is all we have
I see you in my mind so clearly
A salvation to these tired, cold and searching eyes
We fade, we fade away like dream
We come apart at the seam
Every moment comes to an end
Just another fading memory
She let life destroy her
Move through me like a ghost
No one to break their blades
No one to cut their throats

All of your words will wash away
My broken heart stills mends
But you could care less anyway

    General CommentBefore the song starts, he says a few lines that sound like this:

    "Ignore what you love.
    Nobody loves you.
    That's what I decided a long time ago."

    This song conveys the message of living alone in the memory of a past relationship.

    General CommentIt says "You are what you love, not what loves you. That's what I decided a long time ago"

    It's from the movie "Adaption" with Nicholas Cage
