The impetus for ghostlines came from misreading the word “ghostliness” in review for another artist’s album. I saw the word and felt a chill move up my spine. Ghostlines. A word that described the decay I was feeling as an important relationship ended. The feeling of a heart trying to shake off the insubstantial remnants of the connective tissue that once was. The tendrils left that we walk along, retracing past words, past warmth, past memories as I waited to be reborn. Ghostlines.

Lyrics

These ghostlines leading nowhere
To the static in my head
Ghostlines, a fading heat sign
To a heart bled away
Oh I tried to become someone
Who didn't need to cry
Still I'm drowning in these unseen tears
Shed by ghosts beneath my eyes

I'm living in this ghost town
Of stories long since past
Littered in this ghost town
By an end that moved on
Oh I tried to become your possession
Carried past goodbye
Still I'm haunted by the unsaid words
Sung extinct before their time

All this phantom time
Shadows of desire
Languishing lines that light leaves behind
Am I your phantom limb left behind?

Remembrance is a specter
Abundance fossilized
A vigil my desert body keeps
In a wake held for your sea
Oh I tried to release my ravaged needs
From the bondage of desire
Still I'm starving for your shaded kiss
Left parched upon my lips

All this phantom time
Shadows of desire
Languishing lines that light leaves behind
Oh you're my phantom limb left behind
Left behind
All my love left treading numb
Left to search my invisible face in your mirror
Oh I am here
I'm still here
I'm still here

Call me from these shrouded years
Name the ghost you've denied
The ghost you've denied
The ghost I've become

All this phantom time
Shadows of desire
Languishing lines that light leaves behind
A phantom limb left behind

These ghostlines leading nowhere…
