  • Tell me where am I supposed to go?
    And who am I supposed to believe
    If only you knew what I knew
    Then you could see just what I see

    So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go
    'Cause everything ain't what I used to know
    And I try to hide
    But I just can't hide no more
    There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost

    You say I look fine
    If only you knew what was on my mind
    You'd see a whole different side
    I couldn't show you even if I tried
    I must have got lost in time
    When I found out I was only free to be
    Wherever I wanna be

    Some say I'm out of sight
    How ironic and that we're all so blind
    If you could open up your eyes
    You could see what I couldn't describe
    And then, you'd see the signs
    And then your soul would be set free
    And then you'd be released

    So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go
    'Cause everything ain't what I used to know
    And I try to hide
    But I just can't hide no more
    There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost

    Tell me where am I supposed to go
    And who am I supposed to believe
    If only you knew what I knew
    Then you could see (hey)

    So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go
    'Cause everything ain't what I used to know
    And I try to hide
    But I just can't hide no more
    There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost

    And I'm terrified, like I've seen a U-F-O
    'Cause everything ain't what I used to know (ain't what I used to know)
    And I try to hide (I try to hide)
    But I just can't hide no more, no no no
    There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost

    (I go)
    (A U-F-O)
    (And I'm so tired of hiding
    I've been running, I've been trying, to get away, to get away)

    So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go
    'Cause everything ain't what I used to know
    And I try to hide
    But I just can't hide no more
    There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost Writer/s: BOBBY RAY JR. SIMMONS
