in the red moonlight I saw a ghost
it came to me but never spoke
I looked to you asleep in bed
I kissed your arm I felt your head

I wanna wake you up, I wanna wake you up
I wanna wake you up, but I won't...
But I won't

my broken wing, my wheezing chest
my aching heart, my empty nest
my broken wing, my wheezing chest
this feeling of relentlessness

I wanna wake you up, I wanna wake you up
I wanna wake you up, but I won't...
But I won't

this ailing heart is aged in oak
it's buried in the deepest cove
I've placed it there to seal it closed
to watch it grow to watch it mold

this ailing heart is aged in oak
it's buried in the deepest cove
I've placed it there to seal it closed
to watch it grow to watch it mold

I'd tap it dry for you, I'd tap it dry for you
I'd tap it dry for you, if you want me to...
If you want me to

oh my ghost I'm thankful
for how you came and spoke not a word to me
now all my thoughts are racing
while the man I love is lying fast asleep

I wanna wake him, I wanna wake him,
I wanna wake him up,
but I won't...
no, till the morning comes
