Lyrics

GIVING UP THE GHOST
By Eric Meyers

Live fast but I learn slow
Made more mistakes than I care to know
I got regrets and I got pride
Been accepted and I’ve been denied


Got beat by the bottle once or twice
Lost a lot a love but not my life
So tell me what’s left, what you got to believe in
Give me your best, convince me if you can


I gave up my freedom
I was a jailer in my own cage
Built a wall around me
Took cover in my rage
I gave up all the things that mattered most


Now I’m giving up the ghost
I’m giving up the ghost


Sold your soul for a quick fix
Let the rain wash you clean
Swear you’re never going back down there
But you do it again first thing









Running out of wishes
Take a loan out on good faith
Down payment on the new
Going under again
Digging in the dirt when even when your heart is cold


Now you’re giving up the ghost
You’re giving up the ghost


Drove until I was miles from town
Let it out just screaming at the ground
Maybe lock it up and toss the keys
Hitch a ride and see if peace finds me



Now I’m giving up the ghost
I’m giving up the ghost
I’m giving up the ghost
