"Ghost of David (The Return)" as written by and Damien Jurado....
I've seen you walk,
Desert highways
Come on out
They're waiting for you
Your mother lost her one and only
She fears the worst,
For dead are many

And I had seen the ghost, the ghost of David
In the house, in the house of his childhood
Forget him not
For still he loves you
Life is short
But love…
Love
Love
It is eternal

Come on out
Come on out
We're waiting for you

Come on out
Come on out
I’m waiting for you

If I see you walking into town
By the side of the road
Stick out your hand
I’ll give you a ride

See you and I like brothers
We’re hand in hand
Tall as trees
Touching the sky

Laying on my back
Looking at the sky
That’s when I saw my reflection
That’s when I saw my reflection
In your eyes

There I am
There I am
There I am
I’m over there

1972, born and then gone
I all I wanted was to wear the crown
Walk upon the clouds
Shoot lightning from my eyes

Laying on my back
Looking at the sky
That’s when I saw my reflection
That’s when I saw my reflection
In your eyes

That’s when I saw my reflection
In your eyes

There I am
There I am
There I am
I’m over there

There I am
There I am
There I am
I’m over there

When you sold your body
Did it give you a chill?
When you sold your body
Did it give you a chill?
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I’ve been there before
I’ve been there before
I know, I know

Then I turned around
And said goodbye

So long, so long, so long, so long, so long

Ooooooooo
It’s like a chill
Ooooooooo
When I left my body
Ooooooooo

So long, so long, so long, so long
