Ghosts

Why are you frightened can’t you see that it’s you
That ain’t no ghost it’s a reflection of you
Why do you turn away and keep it out out sight?
Oh don’t live up to your given roles
There’s more inside you that you won’t show

But you keep it hidden just like everyone
You’re scared to show you care – it’ll make you vulnerable
So you wear that ghost around you for disguise
But there’s no need just ‘cos it’s all we’ve known
There’s more inside you that you haven’t shown

So keep on moving, moving, moving your feet
keep on shuf-shuf-shuffling to this ghost dance beat
Just keep on walking down never-ending streets
One day you’ll walk right out of this life
And then you’ll wonder why you didn’t try

To spread some loving all around
Old-fashioned causes like that still stand
Gotta rid these prejudices that tie you down
How do you feel at the end of the day?
Just like you’ve walked over your own grave

So why are you frightened can’t you see that it’s you
At the moment there’s nothing – so there’s nothing to lose
Lift up your lonely heart and walk right on through
