  • I couldn't sleep last night
    'Cause I tried to forget you
    In the suffocated air
    I resolved to let you go

    Twisted all our dreams
    Til you became the nightmare
    Close it off inside
    Or else the hurt is gonna rise

    I couldn't sleep last night
    'Cause I tried to forget you
    Heard the old man and the sea
    Singing low

    And the silver fir she cried
    Never forget had gone and died
    And the babes that clung to her
    Had all let go

    My dear she touched my skin
    And oh did the skin
    Set a burning
    My dear she touched my skin

    Where once we kissed and ran
    The memory scorched the man
    I have to tell you dear (ask me to hold you and I)
    Death has become my breathing (far away gone and I)

    My dear she touched my skin (ask me to tell you I)
    And oh she did, she touched my skin (holding the ghost of a man I)
    Where once we kissed and ran (ask me to tell you I)
    This madness haunted the man (holding the ghost of a man)

    Still I'm holding out my hand
    Standing by my haunted man
    Yes, your ghosts have got me too
    But it's me and you
    I can't run

    Still I'm holding out my hand
    Standing by my haunted man
    Yes, your ghosts have got me too
    But it's me and you
    I can't run
