Tuesday’s Tune ~ Ella Henderson “Ghost”

Whatever it is you are haunted by – that ghost you continually carry – you can, in fact, give it up.  The haunting can be over.

I keep going to the river to pray

‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awakeMy friends had you figured out
Yeah, they saw what’s inside of you
You tried hiding another you
But your evil was coming throughThese eyes sitting on the wall
They watch every move I make
Bright light living in the shade
Your cold heart makes my spirit shakeI had to go through hell to prove I’m not insane
Had to meet the devil just to know his nameAnd that’s when my love was burning
Yeah, it’s still burning[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Each time that I think you go
I turn around and you’re creeping in
And I let you under my skin
‘Cause I love living in the sin

Boy you never told me
True love was going to hurt
True pain I don’t deserve
Truth is that I never learn

[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Stop the haunting baby

Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
No more haunting baby

I keep going to the river

[2x:]
I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cause I need something that can wash all the pain
And at most I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake
