lyrics

Every day I face the same questions;
There is no answer,
Only smoke / from a smoldered fire.

And every night I walk these same halls
And find only mirrors,
And your ghost / that comes in time.

You are the specter in my eye-eye-eye-eye...

You... came to my room
Like a ghost / I'd known,
Though kept from my view.

And I... was plagued many nights
Alone / in my room
By the specter of you.

If there was only a way,
I'd take the moments I gave and
Though they were wrong, / I'd make them right.

If there was only a chance,
Know that gladly I'd take it;
And hold you close / through ' the night.

You are the specter in my eye-eye-eye-eye...

You... came to my room
Like a ghost / I'd known,
Though kept from my view.

And I... was plagued many nights
Alone / in my room
By the specter of you.

{4x Instrumental Bridge}

{Refrain}

{Ooh... Oo-oo-oo-ooh... x 2}
