Intro/verse: D9/F#, G, C9, G/B (see figures at bottom of page)


There's a letter on the desktop, that I dug out of a drawer
The last truce we ever came to, from our adolescent war
And I start to feel the fever, from the warm air through the screen
You come regular like seasons, shadowing my dreams (extra C9 G/B D9/F# G)

Well, the Mississippi's mighty, but it starts in Minnesota
At a place that you could walk across with five steps down
And I guess that's how you started like a pinprick to my heart
D9/F# G C9But at this point you rush right through me and I start to drown
(strum) D D#dim Em-Em7 A7sus-A7 And there's not enough room in this world for my pain
D D/C# Bm7 Signals cross and love gets lost and time passed makes it plain
D D#dim Em-Em7 A7sus-A7 Of all my demon spirits I need you the most
I'm in love with your ghost x2 C9 G/B D9/F# G Dark and dangerous like a secret, that gets whispered in a hush When I wake the things I dreamt about you last night make me blush When you kiss me like a lover, then you sting me like a viper I go follow to the river, play your memory like the piper And I feel it like a sickness, how this love is killing me But I'd walk into the fingers of your fire willingly And dance the edge of sanity, I've never been this close In love with your ghost Oo oo-oo ooooooooooooo oo-oo oooooo oo oooo x2 C9, G/B, D9/F#, G
(strum) Em-Em7 A7sus A7Unknowing captor, you'll never know how much you
D D/C# F#11Pierced my spirit, but I can't touch you
Bm Bm/A Bm/G# Bm/A*Can you hear it, a cry to be free
B7 Em E Am C D D/C G/B D I'm forever under lock and key as you pass through me (bridge riff)
Now I see your face before me, I would launch a thousand ships To bring your heart back to my island, as the sand beneath me slips As I burn up in your presence, and I know now how it feels To be weakened like Achilles, with you always at my heels And my bitter pill to swallow is the silence that I keep It poisons me, I can't swim free, the river is too deep Though I'm baptized by your touch, I am no worse at most
C(9) G6/B D(9)/F# G6 In love with your ghost
In love with your ghost x3 (shadowing my dreams; ooooooooh x2) End with outro fill & riff. Strum D/F# to finish (200232). Chords (in order of appearance): D9/F# 200230 G 3x0030 C9 x32030 G/B x20030 D xx0232 D#dim xx1212
