Ghosts Of Jackson Square

This song is by Edwin McCain and appears on the album Messenger (1999).

Ghost on the street today
Doorways of Jackson Square
In tinsel and tap shoes
Mardi Gras beads in her hair

Down to the graveyard
She wrung out her hands
As if he will meet her
All day she stands

So don't leave me
And I know you're justified
So don't leave me
Cause a part of you in me died

We wish ourselves beautiful
And cry in the night
It's not the love you fear
But the fall from the height

Our personal ledges
Afraid to look down
Crepe paper bridges
Enough water to drown

So don't leave me
And I know you're justified
So don't leave me
Cause a part of you in me died

And I see the lonely souls
Searchin'
But before the heartbreak grows
Draw the curtain

I'm a ghost on the streets today
Surrounded by eyes
I feel them peer through me
In my harlequin disguise

If it makes you feel better
Come and join me a while
There's love in my open arms
There's love in my spirit's smile

So don't leave me
And I know you're justified
So don't leave me
Cause a part of you in me died...
