I'm a Ghost

This song is by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and appears on the album Hearts of Oak (2003).

I'm a ghost and I wanted you to know
That it's taking all my strength to make this toast
I'm a ghost and I want you to come close
'Cause I don't want you to miss me and misquote

I'm a ghost, I'm no one of any note
Sure your mind was made up long before I spoke
But I'm a ghost, one of an unholy host
Made invisible and mute but with sore throats

Look, you can't make sound from six feet underground
Now you'll say you disagree, keep my statistic around
But if it looks like a dog and it smells like a dog
Well then it probably is, so let's just give it a walk

I'm a ghost, so it don't matter what I know
And you won't mind if I don't speak comme il faut
But you've been caught in flagrante delicto
And the ghosts are lining up outside your door

Look, you can't make sound from six feet underground
Now you'll say you disagree, but come on, look what we've found
If I can talk 'til I'm dead and still not get in your head
Well then it's probably true, so let's put this idea to bed

Why did you not talk to me?
You said you would talk to me
You could always talk to me back then

There's no more tale to recount and no more truth to renounce
And no more finding me here, if e'er you do come around
See they have lowered me down, put me back deep underground
I'm on my side in the earth where's no rebirth

Why did you not come to me?
You said you would come to me
You could always come to me back then

Why did you not talk to me?
You said you would talk to me
You can never talk to me again
