Lyrics GHOST OF YESTERDAY,
STALKING AROUND MY ROOM,
ALL NIGHT LONG YOU STAY,
WALK AROUND
IN PROFOUND GLOOM.
WHEN THE DARKNESS FALLS,
WHEN IVE GONE TO BED,
WEIRDLY COME YOUR CALLS,
MOURNFULLY,
SCORNFULLY,
DEAD.

FOLLY OF A LOVE
IVE STRANGLED,
PULSING HEART
I THOUGHT WAS GONE,
GIVES NO PEACE,
WILL NOT CEASE
PROWLING AROUND
UNTIL DAWN.

GHOST OF YESTERDAY,
EVERY NIGHT
YOURE HERE.
WHISPERING AWAY:
MIGHT-HAVE-BEEN,
MIGHT-HAVE-BEEN,
OH, MY DEAR!
FOOLISH HEART MUST PAY
GHOST OF YESTERDAY.

GHOST OF YESTERDAY,
STALKING IN MY ROOM,
ALL NIGHT LONG YOU STAY.
WHEN THE SHADOWS FALL,
WHEN I TRY TO SLEEP,
WEIRD,
I HEAR YOUR CALL,
MOURNFULLY,
SCORNFULLY,
WEEP.

GHOST OF YESTERDAY,
SHADOW OF MY DOOM,
EVERY NIGHT YOU STAY,
STRAY AROUND
IN PROFOUND GLOOM,
WONT LET ME ALONE.
EERIE,
WEIRD YOU CREEP,
WEEP
AND WAIL
AND MOAN,
TAUNTING MY,
TAUNTING MY
SLEEP.

FOLLY WAS IT LOVE
TO SQUANDER?
WANDER,
WHILE YOU
KEPT THE FAITH,
NOW IM HOST
TO A GHOST,
MOURNING WITH A WRAITH.

GHOST OF YESTERDAY,
GROAN,
LAMENT AND JEER,
WEARILY YOU SAY:
MIGHT-HAVE-BEEN,
MIGHT-HAVE-BEEN,
OH, MY DEAR!
EVERY NIGHT YOU PREY
GHOST OF YESTERDAY.

Lyrics I'M PULLING THROUGH
AND IT'S BECAUSE OF YOU!
WHEN I WAS STRANDED
CAME YOUR HELPING HAND.
LONELY, HURT
I HAD NOT KNOWN
WHICH WAY TO TURN,
'TIL YOU SAID,
TRY SMILES,
NOT TEARS,
JUST LAUGH AND LEARN.
I'M PULLING THROUGH
AND IT'S BECAUSE OF YOU!
YOU MADE ME SEE
HOW LOVELY LIFE COULD BE,
LIFTED UP MY HEART
AND MADE ME COUNT
THE COST
TO FIND I'D GAINED
NOT LOST!
WHEN I THOUGHT
THAT HOPE WAS REALLY GONE
YOU SHOWED ME I WAS WRONG,
AND YOU TAUGHT ME
TO CARRY ON,
THANKS
FOR THE LIFT IN TIME
AND THANKS
FOR THE SONG!
I'M PULLING THROUGH
AND IT'S BECAUSE OF YOU!
I'D DO THE SAME FOR YOU
IF YOUR TURN CAME
HOPE IT NEVER WILL,
FOR I'VE BEEN THROUGH THE MILL.
I WON'T FORGET THIS DEBT,
I'M PULLING THROUGH.

Lyrics SOME OTHER SPRING
I'LL TRY TO LOVE,
NOW, I STILL CLING
TO FADED BLOSSOMS,
FRESH WHEN WORN,
LEFT CRUSHED
AND TORN,
LIKE THE LOVE AFFAIR
I MOURN.
SOME OTHER SPRING
WHEN TWILIGHT FALLS,
WILL THE NIGHT
BRINGS ANOTHER TO ME.
NOT YOUR KIND
BUT LET ME FIND,
IT'S NOT TRUE
THAT LOVE IS BLIND.

SUNSHINE'S AROUND ME,
BUT DEEP IN MY HEART
IT'S COLD AS ICE.
LOVE,
ONCE YOU FOUND ME,
BUT CAN THAT STORY
UNFOLD TWICE?

SOME OTHER SPRING,
WILL MY HEART WAKE,
STIRRING TO SING
LOVE'S MAGIC MUSIC?
THEN FORGET
THE OLD DUET
FIND LOVE
IN SOME OTHER SPRING.

Lyrics WHAT IS THIS GOING TO GET US,
WHERE ARE WE HEADING IN,
WHEN DO WE START
TO LIVE, DEAR,
WHEN DO WE REALLY BEGIN?
WHAT IS THIS GOING TO GET US,
HANGING AROUND TILL FOUR,
SAYING GOODNIGHT
AT DAYBREAK,
KISSING GOODBYE
IN THE DOORWAY?

WE CANT GO ON
THE WAY WEVE GONE,
IM AT THE END
OF MY ROPE.
I CANT LIVE ON LOVE,
IVE SO MUCH OF,
AND I CANT KEEP LIVING
ON HOPE.

WHAT IS THIS GOING TO GET US?
ONLY AN ACHING HEART.
WHEN IS THIS GOING
TO GET US,
TOGETHER,
NEVER TO PART.
