Dating Her Ghost

She was the sigh between sentences
Now séances provide no light
She was the warmth in a lonely bed
She's the reason he can't sleep at night

The record skipped
Like a clumsy heart bet out of time
The music box broke
The actor has forgot his lines

We will never ever know how she died
Breath taken by another lover
Or the razors kiss of suicide

Is that her dancing down the hallway?
Or is it just inside your head
Is that her whispering your middle name?
It's just inside your head
Let go of hope
Let go of hope
Let go of hope
Before it eats you alive
