King Diamond – The Family Ghost lyrics
Solo: andy.
The darkness came closer to home on the
Following night
And miriam slept like a rock when
Jonathan's face went white

The bedroom was ice cold
But the fire was burning still
The blinding light
The family ghost had risen again... The ghost

"don't be scared, don't be scared now my friend
I am count de lafey
Let me take you to the crypt down below
Where abigail rests"

"let miriam sleep
She never would understand
Now come let us go... It's time to know"

Solo: mike - solo: andy

"beware of the slippery stairs
You could easily fall and break your neck
Hand me that torch and I will lead the way
To the secret in the dark
Take a look into the vault, the vault
The sarcophagus... Of a child
Abigail has been in here for years and years
Stillborn", born... Born... Born

"the spirit of abigail is inside your wife
And there's only one way you can stop
The rebirth of evil itself
You must take her life now"
