Lyrics Chasing Ghosts – Slaine feat. Rite Hook

I never thought it would be you
To make me feel the tug of the knife
Coming out my gut with you pulling it out
No, I thought you were the love of my life
And you were, it was not a dream
What we had was real, a beautiful thing
Beautiful souls, we both are
We both had come so far, just

Two people on a path from the wreckage of the past
Seconds from a crash then
Putting pieces back in our lives, at the same time
Strange how we matched then
Friendship turned to understanding
Turned to love, then to passion
Shaded from the rain, I related to your pain
More than you can imagine

Back then, I could just get lost in your eyes
I saw that you were lost in the mind
Two lives crossed, intertwined
True love is such an awesome design
Created by the fates and we followed on the road
But tomorrow’s never old, and you disappeared

Now I’m looking back
Where we coulda went and lost it in time
There’s a hole from the bottom of my soul
To the top ’cause it’s ripped in half
I couldn’t understand how forever love
Could ever make a shift this fast
You came back like the Ghost of Christmas Past
Say you love me still, then disappear again
Just as soon as Christmas passed

Chasing ghosts
Always the ones that I love the most
Where did you go and hide
Have no fear, I’m right here
On the other side
Take my hand, fly away
Come with me

It’s been months I’ve spending
Revolving but still evolving a little
At a time with this jigsaw puzzle
Puzzled like I’m solving a riddle
I don’t wanna get high over this s**t
So I keep God in the middle
God in the middle, ’cause the devil’s sitting
On the f**king wall with the fiddle
And he plays the song that’ll take me out sadly
That’s just the truth for me

Everything that ever mattered to me
Drugs took ruthlessly
I’ve been sober six years now
Still remember how this s**t used to be
But couldn’t see in real time that
That’s what took you from me

Holy ghost, holy ghost, try to tell me something close
To the truth but the lies you would hide deep inside
Stole me most, stung me most
You and I, we were both on the same oath that one time
Now our stunning dose of reality is coming close to a close
And I’m only stunting growth don’t suppose

That you’ll change any time soon
‘Cause you already went and chose what you chose
Chose what you chose, and if anybody knows how this goes
I was on that road, every low to my battered soul
Guess you gotta know for yourself what you gotta know
I just hope that you make it out alive
But in the meantime, I’ll be right here
Waiting for you on the other side

Chasing ghosts
Always the ones that I love the most
Where did you go and hide
Have no fear, I’m right here
On the other side
Take my hand, fly away
Come with me…
