GHOST STORY

Words and music by Sheila Kirsten Hughes


He takes her hand and they walk together
On the moonlit sand, waves crash beneath their feet
But he never turns to see, nor even question why
Her footprints never show

There's a table set for two but her chair is empty
And he asks if she'll have sugar as he pours her cup of tea
Something must be wrong 'cause she don't say nothin'
But he just takes her hand and whispers to her

Dance with me my love
The stars will fall to meet us
The sun will rise to greet us
Dance with me my love
I won't let go
I won't ever let you go

It's been one year since the day they wed
She's carrying his child, and the time is drawing near
I need a table just for two, it's our anniversary

Now everyone is staring
As the waiter pours the wine
Something must be wrong, but they don't say nothin'
They just watch him as he dances alone

Dance with me my love
The stars will fall to meet us
The sun will rise to greet us
Dance with me my love
I won't let go
I won't ever let you go

30 years before there was thunder, there was lightnin'
And the car kept spinnin' 'round and around
And when he came to he found her broken body
lying face down in the mud
All was lost, and just as he swore, he never let her go

Dance, oh, dance with me my love
Dance with me my love
I won't let go
I won't ever let you go

Night is falling down
And his heartbeat starts to slow
He lies there in darkness
And he's dying all alone
But then she reaches out and whispers to him

Dance with me my love
As heaven comes to meet us,
The angels rise to greet us,
Dance with me my love
I won't let go
I won't ever let you go
