The solitude of dusk
Another day the sun's abandoned us
Shadows are drawing long
Upon the far bookshelf
The trappings of our home
Sad, solemn as the columns of a morgue
Cars creeping through the night-splashed light
Upon your framed photo

It's like I've seen a ghost
It's like I've seen a ghost
I've let myself become obsessed
And you've become too close
You scare me to death
Surely you'll leave me yet

And when the going's good
I'm constantly convinced that it's a curse
With my luck, we'll marry, have two lovely children
And a ranch in the 'burbs where we'll be murdered
I wake up in a sweat
The nightmare where you're trapped under the bed
And each time I close the bathroom mirror
I'm certain your ghoul will appear

It's like I've seen a ghost
It's like I've seen a ghost
The more I try to love someone
The more the horror grows
You scare me to death
Surely you'll leave me yet
By a car crash or heart attack
Or simply losing interest

    My InterpretationThis song is about feeling vulnerable and fearing found happiness. Someone jaded and cynical is constantly looking or waiting for something negative to happen or to be revealed within a good situation. So much so, it prevents the moment to be enjoyed. This is one of my favorite songs of 2013. Kasher is a great lyricist.
