We're just spinning round and round
Both eyes on the ground
Lips don't make a sound

Trading breaths and figure when
We get older
Time will begin

Maybe we are just too close
To the answer
Maybe you are just
a ghost of a letter

Sinking into sleepless beds
With countless thoughts inside our heads
As the stars above
Become brilliant

So we have to wait our turn
To burn, burn, burn
Or learn to forget

I can't be the only one
Without an answer

(Maybe I am just a ghost)
of a whisper

Maybe we are just too close
To the answers
Maybe you are just a ghost
of a dreamer
