(Kim Carnes)

The wind blows cold and the river swells
And the new moon's going wild
And the walls grow thin
It's the state I'm in
You'll just have to excuse me tonight

Cause I'm just checkin' out the ghosts
Checkin' out the ghosts

We wake the beast when we stir the fire
We just can't let it be
After all these years sometimes I still want you near
And it runs bone deep

Cause I'm just checkin' out the ghosts
Seeing if they're still here
Hiding in the closet
Cause it's helly in here

Checkin' out the ghosts
I'm just checkin' out the ghosts

I'm just checkin' out the ghosts
Seeing if they're still here
Hiding in the closet
Weighing down the air

Just checkin' out the ghosts
Sleeping in my bed
Running down my back
Messing up my head

I'm just checkin' the ghosts
Just checkin' out the ghost
I'm just checkin' out the ghosts
