lyrics

GHOST IN THIS HOUSE

There’s a ghost in this house of God
and I can hear him crying
just a shadow upon the wall
‘cos all he loves is dying
crying the tears of regret
‘cos nobody’s listening yet
and it’s lost in the summer rain
there’ll be no rest

There’s a ghost in this house of God
and I can hear him singing
and he holds to The Old Rugged Cross
his only hope still clinging
and he sings to the organ’s pain
and he clings to that old refrain
and he’s waiting there for me
to love again
to love again

There’s a ghost in this house of God
and he haunts the halls and windows
and often the doors are barred
the pictures are on the windows
and he yearns for the lonely souls
that are starving with nowhere to go
and he wanders the graveyard walls
that have no ending


Why does nobody see
why’s the world so against me
why can I never go free
will they ever know me, will they ever know me


There’s a ghost in this house of God
where every brick is counted
and he carries a heart of gold
but he can’t move this mountain
and all that he needs is denied
and all that he hears is more lies
and all that he is still waits
to be recognised

There’s a ghost in this house of God
and he touches the day that’s dawning
and he looks at his worn-out hands
and still the choir is calling
and they sing of Love Divine
and he hopes to come in time
and he dreams that things will change
around about him

Why does nobody see
why’s the world so against me
why can I never go free
will they ever know me

Why does nobody see
why’s the world so against me
why can I never go free
will they ever know me
will they ever know me
Chord X 4
will they ever know me
will they ever know me
