  • I'll never let you down boy
    I'll never let you go
    Her subtle hint of life
    Is so innocent and scary

    "So tell me that you're here, boy"
    She says as if she knows
    When God took her with time
    God made me quite alone

    It's like the universe has left me
    Without a place to go
    Without a hint of light
    To watch the movement glow

    Where our song was slowly starting
    Your memory felt so real
    At first against my will
    But God invented chills

    Yeah I, I saw your ghost tonight
    The moment felt so real
    If your eyes stay right on mine
    My wounds would start to heal

    The kids are in a hurry
    And I'm just full of fear
    The lights make bodies blurry
    It's getting hard enough to hear

    It's like the evidence is cared for
    And evidently clear
    If I never leave this dance floor
    Then I'll never leave you here

    Yeah I, I saw your ghost tonight
    The moment felt so real
    If your eyes stay right on mine
    My wounds would start to heal

    I felt your ghost tonight
    And God, I felt like hell
    To know you're almost mine
    But dreams are all I feel

    Yeah I, I saw your ghost tonight
    It fucking hurt like hell
    I felt you here tonight
    But dreams can't all be real

    I saw your ghost tonight
    It fucking hurt like hell
    I felt you here tonight
    But dreams can't all be real (real, real, real, real, real) Writer/s: Mark Hoppus, Thomas DeLonge, Travis Barker
