lyrics

Loved my feather bed
Golden chandelier
Felt both safe and sound
And yet I was curious

When my mother passed
Questions took her place
Sang myself to sleep
Woke up with a stranger tune

You can live my past
I will live your now
Open up my book
Take a look inside my soul

Tangled up in words
Mystery is my old friend
I’m one step ahead
Story’s you the story’s me

Take a look
Cause this is what you’ve been waiting for
You’ve been asking for it
But are you ready?
I can show you
What you’ve been
What you’ll be
Do you want to see?
Oh think real good about it
Think real good about it!
Come with me

Come with me
Come with me now
The moment is near the shadows are here
This is the chance to dance with me
Cast out your fears open your ears
And you might see who you can
See who you can be

Those shades of gloom will open their tombs
Join in the mist you’ll turn and you’ll twist
Tonight
Sway and swirl with glee

Ghosts 1, 2 and 3 simultaneously:

Ghost 1:
The dead and alive will blend their woes
And skeletons wear their finest clothes
Tonight
Young and old will shake their chattering bones

Ghost 2:
Join in the ghostly dancing night
Moonbeams are casting down their light
Tonight
Young and old will shake their clanking bones

Ghost 3:
Black and white will shift their tones
Young and old will shake their bones
Join in the ghostly dancing night
Moonbeams are casting down their light

Tangled up in words
Mystery is my old friend
I’m one step ahead
Story’s you the story’s me

Grieved my mother’s past
Seen what things will come
Moved with shadowed shapes
And I sang their haunting songs

Now I’ll close my eyes
Give myself to chance
Mystery’s my old friend
Story’s you the story’s me

Marena Whitcher's Shady Midnight Orchestra Switzerland
