Holy ghost
When do you come out to play?
'Cause if the Lord is gonna find me
He better start looking today

Last week my baby hit the slopes
While I spent the weekend setting traps in the road
I should have been cutting out my eyelids
You'll never guess what baby did when she got home
Whoa

Na na na na na
At least the birds are singing to me
But what they're trying to say
I don't know
I think they come from the cold
I think they come from the cold
To the city that don't snow

So I drove until we both broke down
I was stranded in a border town
believeing the motel TV would bring me to safety
but between MTV and Mr. O'Reilly
I've come to find that I can't be defined
So I turn it off
Now convinced I would cross
Took one last look at the gold as it shattered on the mountaintop
Ahhhh ah ah oh

Now I believe the sun it's like a symphony
But what it's trying to play
I don't know
I think they come from the cold
I think it's come for the cold
To the city that don't snow

Now come on
Holy ghost
When do you feel out of place?
'Cause if the Lord is gonna find me
He better start looking today

So I can rise with a river
We all float before we sink
We pray for satellites, pray for courtesy
And pray that it can climb mountains to me

I say goodbye to the river
I will set sail to the streets
Where I don't care to be forgiven
I wanna be forgotten
I don't care to be forgiven
Oh Lord, I only wanna be forgotten

Singing ho-oh-oh now now now
whoa-whoa-whoa
I'm Singing-oh-oh-whoa now now
Whoa
Whoa

Now I receive a call from my family
What they started to say
brought me home
And you are beautiful
For all your big mistakes
You stayed the same
for all your big mistakes

    General CommentThis song was not ever recorded by The Format because the band broke up before the song could be recorded for the next album, Nate Ruess took it and recorded it with his new band fun..
