I met a ghost in the hallway
Of a burned down house
The night I ran from home,
And he screamed to me,

You’ve got a life to live and learn from,
Why is it so hard,
To settle your mind,
And let your heart fly?

Old friend,
What happened inside of your heart?
To keep you from feeling invited.
Think back,
To the nights you were so overwhelmed,
With first times,
And feeling excited.
You leapt off the ledge behind me,
You pulled the floor from beneath my feet,
And now
I fall asleep just to wake up tomorrow,
Look straight through my eyes to the kid that I want to be.

Who are you, and where the hell did you come from?
I can’t just cave and let this pull me away,
If there’s nothing there, there should be nothing to run from,
Subconsciously killing the kid that I used to be.
And if you think this smile is the same as it was
Well, you’re wrong.
I'll live a few more days,
Hang on another excuse for why I’m living this way.

I take a step through the doorway,
As the light cascades,
On an all too familiar face,
Let’s get the story straight.

Look where we are!
This is the building,
You burned it,
We’re black in the lungs!
If you stand from afar,
You’ll see the people you claimed to have loved,
Take the blame as you shrivel up.

I’m growing tired of chasing my mind out the door
And finding my heart on the ocean floor,
The autumn leaves that surround me are changing
And I’m different, maybe this is exactly what I need.

Old friend, what happened inside of your heart,
To keep you from feeling invited,
Think back,
To the nights you were so overwhelmed,
With first times,
And feeling excited.

You leapt of the ledge behind me,
You pulled the floor from beneath my feet
I never wanted to meet you this evening
All of the feelings that shaped me are leaving.

Old friend,
What happened inside of your heart?
To keep you from feeling invited.
Think back,
To the nights you were so overwhelmed,
With first times,
And feeling excited.
You leapt off the ledge behind me,
You pulled the floor from beneath my feet,
And now
I fall asleep just to wake up tomorrow,
Look straight through my eyes to the kid that I want to be.
