I am—I am more than you see.
My confidence is buried deep beneath.
It comes out once a week (or sometimes less).
I know—I know—I know what I said. Don't act like you
Didn't push me to the edge. We'll be back—maybe.

Actually, I'll only be gone for a few days,
And then I'll be back with a new face.
Maybe I made a mistake.
Based on my skin, looks like I'm the snake.
Who needs sleep when you can sing to your feet?

I've made a huge mistake—or free at last, but either way,
You won't forget those pictures, even if you burn the hard copies.
You have a million names, and one of them explains it all to me.
Why do you think I call you “Ghostie”?
Mostly because you're impossible to see.

The sun leaks down to a spot on this block
Where we met in the winter, wearing two pairs of socks.
The cold was forgotten. I saw your smile open.
Fell in love and then out. There's no doubt
You're still a spider and a liar. You've taken everything.

Maybe you've made a huge mistake—or free at last, back in P.A.,
You won't forget those pictures. I'll bet you a million dollars
We've made a huge mistake—or free at last.
We'll find out in a few days,
Singing hope is just this thing that holds us down.

    General CommentThis song is generally about a guy who met his gf in the winter. He fell in love, but it didn't last. She grew tired of him and started denying him. So he brought it up (first line) because he is smarter than he seems. Even though she grew tired of him she won't forget what they had. Now he's deciding if he should try to fall back into love or just move on. He attempts to get her back, but he finds it pointless.
    -Really good song. Had an almost identical situation in my life-
