From Ghost Town

from the 2008 album 'The Evangelist'.

The Secret goes with its books and clothes from Ghost Town
To a place no one can trace maybe thereís peace there in the streets there

Itís gone, yes yes yes not to return why no no burned yes yes yes

David wrote in his good-bye note Ďitís all different nowí
And heís right I hope I get it right as I go on, as I move on

Itís strong, yes yes yes what we made for a thousand years it will not fade no no no

There are places he could have stayed
But he had to go because he loved the rain
There were hearts there was help
But he couldnít love them because he didnít love himself

Itís gone, yes yes yes itís wrong and why should this be so yes yes yes

And he knew more than I knew
And I hated what he hated too

This world, now thatís gone a girl a thousand words a swirl and why why why

There are people who love the moon
Its milky warmth and its brilliant gloom
They hate the day itís just too rough
They go in the morning when theyíve had enough

David wrote in his good-bye note Ďitís all different nowí
And it is thereís much Iíll miss as I go on as I move on

Itís gone, yes yes yes its wrong and why should this be so why why why
