A Ghost That Follows Me

by Blacks&

You can't afford my love It's on fire I don't give it away Hung my love to be From the hollow tree So she'll always be A ghost that follows me Follow me? It's my way or the highway Or the freeway It's up to you babe I don't want to lead you on Like "I'm the moon" and "You're the sun" Won't chase it if you run I'm not the one Cause I've been to Cairo I've been to Skid Row I've chased a diamond Down a rabbit hole This blank expression Is all that's left And it keeps me searching with a Heart of Coal The Race is On You run to me I run from you Baby girl, It's the least that I could do If anything becomes of me If anyone still cares about If anywhere my love still grows Then it will be for no one special Someone nobody knows I could be your "any other way" Let you have me every other day Eating what it throws away Let's chase the feeling Til it goes away I know the way
Can you make it a-ok Can you take it, take it away Rubbing my face and wiping my eyes is the closest I get to looking back I could love you I could love with everything I have Never look away from your perfect diamond eyes Never a wish to colonise Or convert your people Just drink wine with me And stare up at the moon Until we are blind and dull and dumb My temple touches your cheek Begging you to understand What I've been through So I don't have to tell you And we can just continue Makes me wanna burn every book I've ever read Makes me wanna seal my ears and never hear those song again The songs that keep me awake With my eyes closed I can still see you walking in and out my life, my lives I know what they all think and I don't care
We got our start on books and stone Then we came apart And left our bones Everytime I come it feels alright Something evil calls my name I can't say no It feels kinda nice When the morning comes and kills the light Something evil calls my name I won't face those Demons tonight I can't stand to feel it for anybody else My feet are on the floor My fingers to the sky I know the greatest feeling For somebody else Rings hollow in my soul 17 ammunition Getting clean opposition I O U

Blacks& Los Angeles, California

Blacks& started as a late night living room recording project, fueled by whiskey and head-nods in the summer of 2011. While Donald Eley and Tiger passed instruments back and forth, vagabond (and spiritual guide) Jutty Shark gave the tracks a Midas sheen. The group has rounded out its rhythm section by bringing on Jutty's childhood friend Jules Bellin. ... more
