We are ghosts

We are ghosts you and me

But I can still see

The colour you bring to the shadows

They stole your last tears

All you held dear

Hung your sky from the deceit of their Gallows

You knew time was near

But you couldn't walk clear

Breaking my heart as you went on your way

But my love will endure

Eternity once more

As I set out to cross the void

Writing your name in the stars

Blood red like the scars

Until time brings me to the end of its path

Where you'll take my right hand

And place it in yours

My left you will hold to your heart

For we are ghosts you and me

Yet I can still see

The colour you bring to the shadows.
