Dsus4  A
       Ghost on the street today
Dsus4  A
      doorways of jackson square
Dsus4  A
       in tinsel and tap shoes
Dsus4  A
      mardi gras beads in her hair
Dsus4  A
       'n down to the graveyard
Dsus4  A
      she wrung out her hands
Dsus4  A
       as if he will meet her
Dsus4  A                  Abm
      all day she stands

F#m7          Dsus4
     so don't leave me
       A                    A - Abm 
 and I know you're justified
F#m7          Dsus4
     so don't leave me
          Bsus4       [n]        Dsus4 A A A
 'cause a part of you, in me diiiiied

(Dsus4 - A - A - A) x3

Dsus4 A
     we wish ourselves beautiful
Dsus4 A
    'n we cry in the night
Dsus4 A
      and it's not the love you feel
Dsus4 A
    but the fall from the heights
Dsus4 A
      my personal ledges
Dsus4 A
     afraid to look down
Dsus4 A
     my crepe paper bridges
Dsus4 A                 Abm
 and no water to drown

F#m7          Dsus4
     so don't leave me
       A                    A - Abm 
 and I know you're justified
F#m7          Dsus4
     so don't leave me
          Bsus4       [n]        Dsus4 A A A
 'cause a part of you, in me diiiiied

(Dsus4 - A - A - A) x3

Esus4       Dsus4           A      F#m7
    and I see the lonely souls, searchin?
Esus4       Dsus4               Bsus4~  [n]
    but before the heartbreak rose,
                   (Dsus4 - A - A - A) x4
 draw the curtain

Dsus4 A
    I'm a ghost on the streets today
Dsus4 A
    surrounded by eyes
Dsus4 A
     I feel them peer through me
Dsus4 A
    and my harlequin disguise
Dsus4 A
    if it makes you feel better
Dsus4 A
    come join me a while
Dsus4 A
     there's love in my open arms
Dsus4 A                           Abm
     there's love in my spirit smiles

F#m7          Dsus4
     so don't leave me
       A                    A - Abm 
 and I know you're justified
F#m7          Dsus4
     so don't leave me
          Bsus4       [n]        Dsus4 A A A
 'cause a part of you, in me diiiiied

View Just Lyrics...

Ghost on the street today
Doorways of Jackson Square
In tinsel and tap shoes
Mardi Gras beads in her hair
Down to the graveyard
She wrung out her hands
As if he will meet her
All day she stands
So don't leave me
And I know you're justified

So don't leave me
Cause a part of you in me died
We wish ourselves beautiful
We cry in the night
And it's not the love you feared
But the fall from the height
My personal ledges
Afraid to look down
My crepe paper bridges
Enough water to drown

Chorus

And I see the lonely souls
Searchin'
But before the heartbreak rose
Draw the curtain
I'm a ghost on the streets today
Surrounded by eyes
I feel them peer through me
And my harlequin disguise
If it makes you feel better
Come join me the while
And there's love in these open arms
Some love in my spirits' smiles

Chorus
