The Gaslight Anthem – Halloween lyrics

[Verse:]
Sympathy, this is my best disguise
My skin stepped off and my bones dried up
For the rest of the world outside
You see, you see I read on the side
It's a part time thing, private affair
Trying to keep it out of the light

[Pre-Chorus:]
I must confess, I didn't recognize you tonight
Dressed up like my love

[Verse 2:]
And I hate these things but I always attend
A little sip of something to take off the edge
I'll make my way to the ghost in the room
Trying to crack a smile, who are you supposed to be?
You look like heaven tonight
Me? I'm an entombed corpse in a suit
Trying to look a little alive
Are you alright? Cause I worry sometimes
Are you dressed up? Take my life!

[Chorus:]
Keep it coming
Keep it coming

[Verse 3:]
And I think I saw you in a flash in a moment
Broken heart and the body they're holding
I lost your sin in a flash of the party
A beat brought nights, baby, constantly haunting me
I've never been right, have you ever been lied to?
I think I just saw the same scars upon you
Is this a disguise, or a masquerade for me?

[Chorus:]
Keep it coming
Keep it coming

[Interlude:]
Who are you supposed to be?
Yeah you look just like my love
Who are you supposed to be?
How you dressed just like my love
Who are you supposed to be?
Hey you look just like my love
Who are you supposed to be?
How you dressed just like my love for Halloween
