Gone with the Ghost of the Sun

Gone with the Ghost of the Sun ©2018 Robert George BMI

When the sunlight slipped away to die
A pale moon seemed to haunt 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…
