lyrics

I went running by the river, there I saw that plume of smoke
The sun was setting in the ashes of my old home
I went walking down the road
The wolves were lined there in staggered rows
But they weren't howling at the moon
Like the wolves I'd known

You said "Son, the dying's the easy part
It's living with the ghost of what you've done
That will haunt your heart

That old tree we used to swing in
Well they burned it to the ground
That old tree we used to love
It fell with a sound

You said "Son, the dying's the easy part
It's living with the ghost of what you've done
That will haunt your heart

I had a notion that you might know
While those shadows crawled up the wall
The ghost of tomorrow you'll never know
You gotta take it slow
But now your haunting this old town
All the hallways, all around
You lived for something but you died for nothing
Behind these walls

You said "Son, the dying's the easy part
It's living with the ghost of what you've done
That will haunt your heart
