Gary Jules – Ghosts lyrics

I'm runnin' along the rocks of the river
And the water's as cold as the snow;
The man is chasing behind me
And I can't afford to falter or slow.
I find solace in what we believe
Or the hush of the cool gentle rain
But there's something we love in the mystery
Of a man in the midst of a change.

She laughed and said I was goin' nowhere
'Cause it's nowhere she's ever been.
When I get to that place she'll remember my face
And say "Hey man, I knew him when he was younger."
But she never loved me at all;
She laughed when I was in pain.
'Cause there's something that we are all frightened of
In a man in the midst of a change.

Oh, out on the roof to inquire of the sky
The existence of ghosts in my life;
Who's to blame, you or I?
No one would answer me;
They just stared
With the weight of the world
I pretend not to feel.

The windmill is poised for the battle
But the fool understands not the game
He believes in his mission,
Predestined position;
Amazing, the grace of her name.
Oh, he loves her now as he loved her then;
Rocinante remembers the days
When I whistled and sat waiting patiently
With a man in the midst of a change.

Oh, out on the roof to inquire of the sky
The existence of ghosts in my life;
Who's to blame, you or I?
No one would answer me;
They just stared
With the weight of the world
I pretend not to feel.

Yeah, yeah, I'm runnin' along the rocks of the river
With the freedom to step where I choose.
Though I can't stop to rest, I like traveling best
And besides, I've got nothing to lose from it.
I find solace in all the extremes:
In pleasure as well as in pain.
I just wish he would let me explain to you,
The man in the midst of a change.

We find solace in all the extremes:
In pleasure as well as in pain.
I just wish he would let me explain to you,
The man in the midst of a change.
