Gary Numan A Child With The Ghost Lyrics

Last updated: 10/21/2009 11:00:00 AM

Nothing I can say
Can make your picture talk
I feel so tired and
Nothing I can do
Will make your picture move
I feel so helpless but
I can feel
A child with the ghost here
You let your heart slip away

If I had one wish
I'd wish to talk with you
I have some questions
Things only you could know
If I had one wish
I'd wish to talk with you
Nothing you can feel
Can feel as cold as this
I'll sing this song and
I'll say goodbye forever

I wonder
If God is all they say
I can't believe in such things.
I suppose
Some games are hard to lose
But you don't have to play 'cos
I can feel
A child with the ghost here
You let your heart slip away

A child with The Ghost Review | Reviewer: Alana Holmes | 10/21/09

Undoubtably the best Numan song that was ever written. It has always been my favourite, and what makes it more special and touching is that Numan, wrote it as a

tribute to his friend and bass player Paul Gardiner, who tragically passed away in 1984 of a drug over dose. Thank you Gary Numan. RIP Paul Gardiner, see you in the reserrection.
