"Dearly Departed (ft. Esme Patterson)" as written by and Esme Patterson Alejandro Rose Garcia....
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

Well
You and I both know that the house is haunted
And you and I both know that the ghost is me
You used to catch me in your bed-sheets just a-rattling your chains
Well back then baby, it didn’t seem so strange

You used to bite, I used to moan
But now I’m mumbling and you choke
Well I ain’t so scary on my own
Tell me honey, what’s a dagger without a cloak?
Well I don't know

‘Cause
You and I both know that the house is haunted
Yeah you and I both know that the ghost is me
You used to catch me in your bed-sheets just a-rattling your chains
Well back then baby, it didn’t seem so strange

In the midnight hour, you came alive
I was looking for my crystal ball
I busy trying to charm that snake
When the sun came up we had no place to hide
And you had to tell your friends that my things where fake
I just had to

You and I both know that the house is haunted
Yeah you and I both know that the ghost is me
You used to catch me in your bed-sheets just a-rattling your chains
Well back then baby, it didn’t seem so strange

But even when one is dead and gone
It still take two to make a house a home
Well I’m as lonesome as the catacombs
I hear you call my name but no one's there
Except a new one in the air

You and I both know that the house is haunted
Yeah you and I both know that the ghost is me
You used to walk around screaming, all slamming all ‘dem doors
Well I’m all grown up now and I don’t scare easy no more

But you and I both know
Ooh
Yeah you and I both know
Ooh
Yeah you and I both know
Ooh
Ooh

    General CommentAmazing song with a great chorus - you're haunted by your ex and your shared memories until you can let it go and let those spirits rest

    General CommentLove this song. To me, its about to ex lovers that grew apart. The see each other now, and remember when things were different, the memories and feeling of their past still inter in their "empty houses" like "ghosts" but they can't get back what they had.
