Chasing Ghosts

Chasing Ghosts (Dale Wade-Keszey)

There were words I should have said, but I just could not say
Like a coward on some battlefield, I just drove away
Years of shame it haunts me like a thousand ghosts set loose in my night
Somewhere in your memories, please know I tried

The winter was the coldest one that I can recall
Snowstorms by the dozen, which laid in piles tall
By the time the sun was warm enough to free me from my prison of white
Somewhere in that winter please know I cried

Chorus:
Somewhere in my future when I’m graying and the years go quickly past
Somewhere in my darkness when I’m staring at the bottom of my shot glass
Somewhere in this lifetime I just need to know
That you know

On some dark and rainy highway, where I don’t know
You’ll hear this voice from your past on some all-night folky show
And those clapping of the wipers and the numbing green of the dashboard lights
‘Cause somewhere down that highway you’ll know I tried

Chorus

Interlude
