Common Ghost

from by Fossil Youth



I watched the smoke rise from your backyard
I watched you cut that oak tree down
a burning sensation lit my lungs
as we watched the embers hit the ground

where did we go wrong
when did we go numb

I wish I was a whisper in the wind
maybe then you'd be listening

and then I wondered what I'd have to do
to get out of this situation to cut out all sense of hesitation
to put a nail in the coffin and bury me in the dirt

silence stirs like scissor tongues that cut our lips with every word
some days I wish we didn't speak
every night I lay awake

you're my common ghost
