I stumbled in and I fell straight asleep in the chair
Swear I did
Woke with a start and I thought I saw you floating there
Swear I did

The fixtures and furniture's the same
As the second you walked out the door
But here in my head you put a ghost train
And I can't go 'round any more

And I hear the passengers scream
I'm living in a haunted heart
And I tell myself it's all a bad dream
I'm living in a haunted heart

Too proud to beg you to come back
One more drink, the fairground fades to black
Every night

Days last for years 'til the dark, like a bear,
Puts his claws around my brain
Smack! Bang on time, with your laugh, you walk in
Through the walls around my brain

The curtains and carpets are the same
As the day you dissolved in thin air
Now here I go queueing for the horror ride
Knowing I don't have the fare

And I hear the passengers scream
I'm living in a haunted heart
And I tell myself it's all a bad dream
I'm living in a haunted heart

Too proud to beg you to come back
As the ghost train rattles 'round it's track,
Every night

I can't exorcise you or cause you to reappear
But if you want to know what nothing looks like
Well just peel back my chest and take a look inside here

The fixtures and furniture's the same
As the second you walked out the door
But here in my head you put a ghost train
And I can't go 'round any more

And I hear the passengers scream
I'm living in a haunted heart
And you're shaking me apart at the seams
I'm living in a haunted heart
My reality is pushed past extremes
I'm living in a haunted heart
And I tell myself it's just a bad dream
I'm living in a haunted heart

Too proud to beg you to come back
One more drink, the fairground fades to black.
