  • Ghost calls to visit
    With my keys in his pocket
    Kisses in my mouth with his
    Eyes hanging out of his sockets
    My memories crumble
    Under still resistance
    I was torn out like pages
    From the book of existence

    I woke up in a strange place
    My mind a blur and some blood on my chin
    I made a call for a blackened cab
    Some destination was moving on in
    I remember the words that you told me
    How they come down so hard, so plain
    Fate is going to find your love in a
    Glass of champagne

    I lied to my host I told him
    I knew how far I could go
    When I emptied my guts out
    On his brand new stereo
    Well he paid me to go upstairs
    And spend a night with his friend
    I never want to see my face
    In the mirror again

    I woke up in a strange place
    Music so loud that I spilled all my beer
    I met a ride in that blackened cab
    Some destination was all that he had
    Easy now, this car is speeding up
    For my last chance, crashing to freedom
    Fate is going to find your love in a
    Glass of champagne

    Sweat pours down
    You're in the back seat sleeping
    And she waits by the window
    On an empty bed, weeping
    The ghost guns the motor
    To the land that he promised me
    I guess this is the time when your
    Best intentions become facts again

    This is no song for the dislocated
    The one you loved but it turned to be hated
    Because the lies of the spirit possessed you
    Because the eyes of your lover resist you
    Listen now, you keep your aim steady
    As your temple turns to kiss the pistol
    Fate is going to find your love
    In a glass of champagne

    Fate is going to find your love
    In a glass of champagne
