Ghost on the Canvas

Album: Ghost on the Canvas (2011)
  • I know a place between life and death for you and me
    Best take hold on the threshold of eternity
    And see the ghost on the canvas
    People don't see us!
    Ghost on the canvas,
    People don't know
    When they're looking at soul!

    In between here and there, there is a place that we can grow
    The spirits make love in the wheat field with crows
    Like a ghost on the canvas
    People don't see them!
    Ghost on the canvas
    No, they never see soul!

    Ring around the rosary
    Pocket full of prose you read
    Ashes to ashes we all fall in love
    With the ghost on the canvas

    We dream in color,
    Others they color their dreams
    It takes one to know one
    The spirit always knows what it sees

    Like the ghost on the canvas
    Never can have us
    The ghost on the canvas,
    It’s the soul, it makes them go
    People don’t know
    When they're looking at soul!
    To the ghost on the canvas
