Rickie Lee Jones

Ghostyhead, ghostyhead, standing in the door

You think if you don't answer

I can't hear you anymore

Chains you hung from ear to ear

Finally drug your head

But I can see through anything

I know what you bled

Ghostyhead, ghostyhead, you think that I can't see

The shadow of another girl

Each time you look at me

People came from far away to watch us drop you in

But ghostyhead the crowd is gone

Come back up again

Ghostyhead, ghostyhead

Come out on the porch

There's a serpent caught in a fisher's net

Virgins light the torch

'Cause who this night would not stay warm

By any light they could?

You just eat your bread and cake

And tell them it was good
