Emotional Ghost

Album: Continuity (2009)
  • You can call the coroner
    I'm better than halfway dead
    I only asked for water
    You brought me poison instead
    When I slipped into convulsion
    Begged for the antidote
    You turned around and walked out the door
    Pretended not to hear me choke
    Whoa I, that was my first mistake
    Me believing, that you would not cause my heart to break

    Your lips are moving
    It means you're lying
    So what is the difference, if you hear me crying?
    Still I wonder, what the hell, have I gone and done?
    I feel it's much too late for me to turn it around
    Would I rather live with a lie, or live alone
    It's a question I can't decide 'till I pick up the phone
    Whoa I, you were a big mistake
    I'm barely breathing, but I wish I could suffocate.
    Drown underwater, so I would not have to taste the pain
    Euthanize me, so I'll never feel this way again
    Still I wonder

    In our lives we all make mistakes
    We all make mistakes
    We all make mistakes
    If I try a little harder, I could forgive you for murder, if I try a little harder

    Whoa I, you were a big mistake.
    I'm barely breathing, but I wish I would suffocate
    Drown underwater so I would not have to taste the pain
    Euthanize me, so I'll never fall in love again
    You were my worst mistake
    That was my first mistake
    You were a big mistake. Writer/s: B. Smith, J. Hathaway, L. Whitsel, P. Allgood
