about

Written at my McMinnville studio in early 2015. I started to write about the feeling you might get when you visit someplace you left a long time ago. Was anticipating writing a melancholic song, but this more bitter version came out instead.

lyrics

My heart is a ghost town
spirits circling 'round
shadows playing hide and seek
lost before they're found
my heart is a ghost town

your love was a weapon
aimed at my soul
hidden under smiling lies
passion burning cold
your love was a weapon

burn down the memories
burn down the dreams
throw away everything
all that's left are broken wings

My heart is a ghost town
spirits circling 'round
shadows playing hide and seek
gone before they're found
my heart is a ghost town

this house is a graveyard
full of empty shells
overgrown with twisted words
ringing with haunted bells
this house is a graveyard

burn down the memories
burn down the dreams
throw away everything
all that's left are broken wings

My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
