Gone with the Ghost of the Sun ©2018 Ricki Bellos/Robert George BMI

When the sunlight slipped away to die
A pale moon haunted the evening sky

And I met her in a boardwalk tavern
Late that night near Galveston
O her eyes were cloaked in myst’ry,
And her lies were soaked in hist’ry
Then she was gone with the ghost of the sun

Moonlight walked on water toward the west
As she described desire as a quest

Then we danced together by the ocean
Waltzing and melting as one
And although I never knew her,
I revealed forever to her
Then she was gone with the ghost of the sun

Things that touch us sensually
The things we spend a lifetime dreaming of
All must leave eventually
And once it’s lost, there’s no redeeming love

Certain shadows only shine at night
She vanished through a veil of misty light

Was she just a sister of enchantment
Or a web whiskey had spun
Maybe life is only sadness,
Maybe love is lonely madness
Cos she was gone with the ghost of the sun

Gone with the ghost of the sun
The ghost of the sun…

That's lovely, well done! It's very picturesque and you can definitely envision the scenario - very poetic lyrics.

Here's a new track of mine, I'm a songwriter and producer and I wanted to experiment with lofi-style production. Please have a listen! :D EMR - Suit Yourself (SoundCloud)

Lyrics:
If you don't love me like I love you
Got an old spark you'd rather cling to
Suit yourself, go on, suit yourself
I wait until the sun takes its leave
And every time you go you're showing me you just suit yourself
So suit yourself

I left the lights on
4 am and the curtains drawn
Waiting for you to come around
This isn't what I need
But time is killing me
And it hurts more the more you let me down

And I told you I could be the one who heals you
I was kinda wishing you would come and fix me too
But we'll never progress unless we want to mend ourselves

This isn't what you need
Be a distraction, please
At least 'till I figure out how to turn my life around

If you don't love me like I love you
Got an old spark you'd rather cling to
Suit yourself, go on, suit yourself
I wait until the sun takes its leave
And every time you go you're showing me you just suit yourself
So suit yourself

Hi again, emr...I don't spend much time on the internet. I had a chance to listen to Boy Moon and a few others. They were outstanding. I was very impressed and I don't hand out compliments I don't believe in.
