Spirit Of The West – Swingin' Single lyrics

We were splitting up
You split up instead
You lost your head last night
And your body came to bed
Your face came back to haunt me
When your body ran away
I'd put them back together
But together they won't stay
Skeletons in the closet
Ghosts out in the hall
Rattling chains and spirit trains
Won't let me sleep at all
No rest for the stupid
People standing on my toes
I gave up things I should have kept
My violin has got no bow
I should have told you proper
Laid out everything
But you were pushing separate bedrooms
And pulling all the strings
Skeletons in the closet
Ghosts out in the hall
Rattling chains and spirit trains
Won't let me sleep at all
Been a long time without you
Been a long and lonely lonely time
Bitter tears have dried with years
And now my eyes won't cry
My god has beena comfort
And I'm managing to cope
Though I'm a swinging single
Dangling from your rope
Skeletons in the closet
Ghosts out in the hall
Rattling chains and spirit trains
Won't let me sleep at all
Skeletons in the closet
Ghosts out in the hall
Rattling chains and spirit trains
Won't let me sleep at all
