The Ghost Inside

Album: Broken Bells (2010)
  • She sold her love to a modern man
    Cause solid currency's the hardest to love
    All other modern hells you cover your eye
    Don't let the lady finger blow in your hat
    Di-di-da

    Feel like a daughter
    She's a star tonight
    Without warning
    She gave up
    The ghost inside

    This gives some matter to shaking her hide
    Too late to leave him' are the songs in her car
    Di-di-da

    Feel like a daughter
    She's a star tonight
    Without warning
    She gave up
    The ghost inside

    They call it chivalry
    Never pull a punch for free
    You ever wonder why they had to move on
    This phony article
    That put you on the floor
    A double standard
    You envoke when you want

    Feel like a daughter
    She's a star tonight
    Without warning
    She gave up
    The ghost inside

    Was it all for show?
    To turn into all of them
    Turning a page
    Trust me darlin'
    I'm carving 'em up through the dust in your town
    Crawling over rubble, just to sound me out
    Tend to wonder why? Writer/s: BRIAN BURTON, JAMES MERCER
