I saw a ghost on the stairs
And sheets on the tables and chairs
The silverware swam with the sharks in the sink
Even so I don't know what to think

I've been longing for
Daisies to push through the floor
And I wish plant life would grow all around me
So I won't feel dead anymore
So I won't feel dead anymore

I saw a bear in the den
Reading my textbooks again
The bats float like traffic
As they pour from the attic
Heaven knows I could really use a friend

I'd rather waltz then just walk through the forest
The trees keep the tempo and they swayed in time
Quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus
If I were to pluck on your heart strings
Would you strum on mine?

I've been longing for
(I've been longing for)
Daisies to push through the floor
(I've never really felt like this before)
And I wish plant life would grow all around me
So I won't feel dead anymore
So I won't feel dead anymore

Your spirit is sweet
So pull off your sheet
And give me a ghost of a smile
Show me your teeth
Cause you're a teddy beneth
So just grin and bare it awhile
Just grin and bare it awhile

I'd rather waltz then just walk through the forest
The trees keep the tempo and they swayed in time
Quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus
If I were to pluck on your heart strings
Would you strum on mine?

(Babbles on about nothing at all)
(A new leaf turns over unwilling to fall)

Tonight I'm busting out
Of this old haunted house
Cause I'm sick of waiting for
All those spider webs
To grow all around me
Cause I don't feel dead anymore
And I'm not afraid anymore

I'd rather waltz then just walk through the forest
The trees keep the tempo and they swayed in time
Quartet of crickets chime in for the chorus
If I were to pluck on your heart strings
Would you strum on mine?

If I were to pluck on your heart strings
Would you strum on mine?
