Now I am the sort who buys candles,
Asking spirits to tie my shoes
But I tell you this world,
Yes, this world, yes this world
It has pockets you cannot see to reach into.
There are spirits among us
Spirits with ears and eyes
They see those macho-man movies your mind makes
They keep you memorizing your lines.

And every thought you think
And every deed you do
And every word you whisper in the dark
Ain't just between us two.

Some people dig paranoid thinking,
A spirit watching 'em making sex.
But I'll tell you a spirit it always is worried,
Wondering what we're gonna do next.
There are spirits among us,
Spirits with eyes and ears.
A man laughs and fills the spirit world with music,
A man cries and fills the spirit world with tears.

And every thought you think
And every deed you do
And every word that you whisper in the dark
Ain't just between us two.

There are words which are whispered in darkness
Too truthful to be our own
There's a flash like a match 'cross our faces
And then deeper darknesses
Where the light had shone.
There are spirits among us
Spirits with teeth and tongue
Spirits who speak with our voices
Spirits who speak with our lips and lungs

And every thought that you think
And every deed that you do
And every word that you whisper in the dark
Ain't just between us two.
