lyrics

Well you know you can cry if you want to,
But I don’t think you should,
‘Cause I’ll kiss the crystals from your eyes.
And you know those silver streaks,
Well, they don’t suit your cheeks,
But you can’t kiss my mouth free of lies.
‘Cause when the clouds kidnap the moon,
And they take her from view,
Well, you know she’s never really gone for good.
And I wish I could say the same for me,
And while I’m older, I’m still naïve,
But I’m still dreaming of the Mississippi.

‘Cause it’s cold in Barcelona,
It’s cold on Royal Avenue,
And I just wanna escape the grey.
And to dance in the moonlight,
Like a nostalgic ghost on a Summer night,
And throw my wishes at the Pacific.
I’ll drink up every drop,
When I find that ocean of luck,
But is luck just an excuse to blame the hurt?
As I sit and skim these stones,
I feel the cold cut through my bones,
And stare out at the darkness in front of me.

Well you know you can cry if you want to,
But I don’t think you should,
‘Cause I’ll kiss those crystals from your eyes.
And maybe we’ll dance in the moonlight,
Like two ghosts on a Summer night,
But have you ever seen a ghost before?
‘Cause I’ve never seen a ghost,
Dancing in the moonlight,
No, I’ve never seen a ghost.
No, I’ve never seen a ghost,
No, I’ve never seen a ghost…
