Three narrations of the same story.

      In the first, you always remember.                                                                               In the second, you never forgive.                                                                                      In the third, you embrace it.

 

Kristin Hersh – Your Ghost

If I walk down this hallway, tonight,
It’s too quiet,
So I Pad through the dark
and call you on the phone
Push your old numbers
and let your house ring
til I wake you ghost.
Let him walk down your hallway
it’s not this quiet
slide down your receiver
sprint across the wire
follow my number
slide into my hand.

It’s the blaze across my nightgown
it’s the phone’s ring.

I think last night
you were driving circles around me.

I can’t drink this coffee
til I put you in my closet
let him shoot me down
let him call me off
I take it from his whisper
you’re not that tough.

 

Marianne Faithfull – There is a Ghost

There is a ghost
And it goes out
On the land
On the land

It’s lifted up
It feels and flows
On many hands
On many hands

Oh, my lover
Oh, my lover
Never was there another
Where has my loverman gone

There is a dream
You’ve had before
And forgot many times
So many times

When you remember who I am
Just call
When you remember who I am
Just call

When you remember who I am
Just call
When you remember who I am

There is a tree
But its leaves have gone
For what it seem
It stands alone

Oh, my lover
Oh, my lover
Gonna, gonna find another
Where has my loverman gone

Away, away
Across the land
Across the land
Across the land

 

Placebo – Sleeping with Ghosts

The sea’s evaporated
Though it comes as no surprise
These clouds we’re seeing
They’re explosions in the sky
It seems it’s written
But we can’t read between the line

Hush
It’s okay
Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate dry your eyes
Cause soulmates never die

This one world vision
Turns us in to compromise
What good’s religion
When it’s each other we despise
Damn the government
Damn their killing
Damn their lies

Hush
It’s okay
Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate dry your eyes
Cause soulmates never die

Soulmates never die
Never die
Soulmates never die
Never die…
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
