I’m in the belly of a canyon
I can’t come up with any reason
Why a ghost is following me
Why a ghost is following me
I’ve got some feed for the longing
I’ve got the pillow for the bad dream
The apparition dancing with me
Stepping down all over my feet
There is no key to my gate
But you can still come around
Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down
Sometimes I don’t know what I’m seeing
Who’s keeping track of all that’s breathing?
There’s a world that’s waiting for me
There’s a world that’s waiting for me
I’m in the belly of a canyon
I can’t come up with any reason
Why a ghost is following me
Why a ghost is following me
There is no key to my gate
But you can still come around
Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down
There is no key to my gate
But you can still come around
Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down
There is no key to my gate
But you can still come around
Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down

    Fucking beautiful. He's keeping a lover at arm's length. There's no way to "figure him out" or truly know him completely, he says. Or maybe there is, but he won't give her the "key."
