EELS Friendly Ghost Lyrics

If you're scared to die
You better not be scared to live
I've been spending all my days
Giving all I can give

Last night I heard someone walk in
Through my bedroom door
What they wanted I'm not exactly sure

A friendly ghost is all I need

Marking time on a broken watch
Counting days 'til the old pawn shop
Sells me back my saxophone
Then everyone's gonna leave me alone

Two times I thought I heard someone
Knocking on the glass
I hid my head and prayed that it would pass

A friendly ghost is all I need

If you're scared to die
You better not be scared to live
I've been carrying 'round a grudge
Think I better forgive

Last night I heard footsteps walking
On the attic floor
I got up and I opened up the door

A friendly ghost is all I need
