lyrics

Sing me the words
To the most beautiful song
And i'll put them in a box
And send them to my Ma
And the tales that you tell
Will spin her out of her spell
Cause there's times when all you need is a song

Sing of the good old days
Back on the farm
The chimney smoke dream
That feels so long gone
Where the ghost of her father
Wouldn't dare come closer
Than the outside porch in the yard

Now i'm sitting here drinking
Endless bottles of wine
There's a comfort i've found
But I ain't got much time
I feel another ghost rising
This time the soul is mine
I don't think I can leave her alone
I don't think I can leave her alone

Sing of the midnight
Where my dreams came from
When she'd sit on my bed
And sing me a song
With her red wine breath
Her perfume and dress
Made me feel like the luckiest man

Hours pass by when I think of my Ma
How all the men in her life
Always left her alone
And she's trying so hard
To hang on to the one that she's got
That it's taking its toll

Now i'm sitting here drinking
Endless bottles of wine
There's a comfort i've found
But I ain't got much time
I feel another ghost rising
This time the soul is mine
I don't think I can leave her alone
I don't think I can leave her alone
