Ghost


by Indigo Girls
V-a:	There's a letter on my desktop that I dug out of my drawer
The last truce we came to from our adolescent war
And I start to feel a fever from the warm air through the screen
You come regular like the seasons and shadowing my dreams
         [a]
D - - - / G - - - / C9 - - - / C9/B - - - /  x4  /  x4  /  x4  // (C9 - - - / C9/B - - - / D - - - / G - - - //)
[b]
D - - - / G - - - / C9 - - - /    //

V-b:	And the Mississippi's mighty but it starts in Minnesota
At a place where you could walk across with five steps down
And I guess that how you started like a pinprick to my heart
But at this point you rush right through me and I start to drown

C1:	And there's not enough room in this world for my pain
Signals cross and love gets lost and time passed makes it plain
Of all my demon spirits I need you the most
I'm in love with your ghost, I'm in love with your ghost

D - - - / D/F# - - - / Em - - - / As4 - A - / D - - - / D/C# - - - / Bm - - - /    /
D - - - / D/F# - - - / Em - - - / As4 - A - / C9 - - - / C9/B - - - / D - - - / G - - - /  x4  //
( C - - - / C9/B - - - / D - - - / G - - - / C9 - - - / C9/B - - - //)

V-b:	Dark and dangerous like a secret that gets whispered in a hush   (don't tell a soul)
When I wake the things I dreamt about you last night make me blush   (don't tell a soul)
When you kiss me like a lover, then you sting me like a viper
I go follow to the river play your memory like the piper

C2:	And I feel it like a sickness how this love is killing me
But I'd walk into the fingers of your fire willingly
And dance the edge of sanity I've never been this close
In love with your ghost, ooooh, ooooh...

 B:	Unknowing captor, you'll never know how much you pierce my spirit
But I can't touch you, can you hear it - a cry to be free 
Or I'm forever under lock and key as you pass through me 

Em - - - /    / A - - - /    / D - - - / D/C# - - - / F#s4 - - - / F# - - - /
Bm - - - / Bm/A - - - / Bm/G# - - - / G - - - / B - - - /    / Em - - - / E - - - /
Am - - - / C - - - / D - - - / C9 - - - / C9/B - - - / D - - - //

V-b:	Now I see your face before me, I would launch a thousand ships
To bring your heart back to my island as the sand beneath me slips
As I burn up in your presence and I know how it feels 
To be weakened like Achilles with you always at my heels 

C3:	And my bitter pill to swallow is the silence that I keep 
That poisons me I can't swim free the river is too deep
Though I'm baptized by your touch I am 
No worse at most, in love with your ghost ...
