Bon Jovi Living With The Ghost Lyrics

Marry me to the blue sky

Bury me in that long last drop of hard rain

Meet me where they stop time

That’s you to me on the shovel that’s digging this grave

Till I can waltz on a moonbeam

Till I can find a way to turn all tears into wine

I’ll hitch my ride to a day dream

Can’t unkiss the lips that love is leaving behind

I ain’t living with the ghost

No future living in the past

I’ve seen what hate has done to hope

Tomorrow wasn’t built to last

I ain’t living with the ghost

How can I scream, I’m scared to breathe

I wrote each word, you gave the toast

But we were fire and gasoline

I ain’t living with the ghost

I set my sails over wheat fields

Rode waves of amber, let a new sun shine on my face

I dropped the sword, put down my shield

I left your scars for the stars, guiding my way

I traded hurting for healing

I must admit that I was reeling

Now I’m feeling just fine

Traded nightmares for dreaming

Go tell your shadows that I got out alive

I ain’t living with the ghost

No future living in the past

I’ve seen what hurt has done to hope

I found the tree I cut the rope

Tomorrow wasn’t built to last

I ain’t living with the ghost

How can I scream, I’m scared to breathe

I wrote each word, you gave the toast

But we were fire and gasoline

I ain’t living with the ghost

Last night I had this dream

I saw a man wash his feet

In the church holy water

He worked up to his knees

From his arms to his neck

Said I’m in over my head

He was crying trying to get some relief

Lord, I’m just trying to get some relief

I had this dream

That man was me

I ain’t living with the ghost

No future living in the past

I’ve seen what hurt has done to hope

I found the tree I cut the rope

Tomorrow wasn’t built to last

I ain’t living with the ghost

How can I scream, I’m scared to breathe

I wrote each word, you gave the toast

But we were fire and gasoline

Now I ain’t living with the ghost
