about

I was talking to a fellow songwriter about bad memories that sometimes come back to haunt me. She said they were called "Ghosts On The Corner". I thought that was a cool title for a song and wrote this.

lyrics

I see my sky is darkness
My shadow moving slow
There’s a street sign pointing
Down a road I don’t want to go.

Phantoms dance on sidewalks
Memories from my past
All the things I once forgot
Are broken scenes on broken glass

Chorus
Ghosts on the corner
Got me on the run
Won’t go back again
Don’t know how I’ve gone this long
Ghosts on the corner
One has got a gun
She scares the hell out of me
Calling me back with her siren song.

The fragmented pieces
Of all the bad I’ve done
Come rushing back to me now
Like the sound of a shot of a loaded gun

It might be a dream
Or a final bid farewell
Yesterday catches up with me
And tomorrow now my living hell.

(Chorus)

Bridge
There was a time when I’d forgotten these things
When I could live without my past
But fate or justice has brought me here
To pay silent my dues at last.

(Chorus)

Mostly me. Joe Mizzi added some backing vocals. He basically taught me how to do it properly with this song. Thanks so much for the lesson Joey.
