Ghosts


I’m wandering down these empty streets
Worn out shoes and blisters on my feet
All the roads that led me out of this town
Keep on calling me, bringing me right back around

I can see some old familiar places
But I sure miss all the friendly faces
That used to smile in passing on the street
Why won’t these memories just let me be

Chorus:
I can shake the sand from my shoes
But I can’t shake off these sandhill blues
Ghosts from my past are never far behind
The cloud my eyes and they haunt my mind
I thought they’d disappear with time
Oh, but I can’t seem to leave my ghosts behind

Every step I take is so bittersweet
When pieces of my past fall incomplete
It’s like some crazy game of lost & found
When the sentimental fool comes back to town

Chorus:
I can shake the sand from my shoes
But I can’t shake off these sandhill blues
Ghosts from my past are never far behind
The cloud my eyes and they haunt my mind
I thought they’d disappear with time
Oh, but I can’t seem to leave my ghosts behind

Bridge:
I keep on trying to run
But I’m not even sure what I’m running from
Maybe it’s time to let go of this fear
Of what I’ve been hiding from for all these years

I guess the one thing I wish I knew
Am I home or only passing through
Are these memories leading me astray
Or trying to help me find my way

Chorus:
I can shake the sand from my shoes
But I can’t shake off these sandhill blues
Ghosts from my past are never far behind
The cloud my eyes and they haunt my mind
I thought they’d disappear with time
Oh, but I can’t seem to leave my ghosts behind

They keep on haunting me…
They keep on following me…
