lyrics

“Ghost in the Transmission”
© 2010 C. Rose

you said that you'd never want more than I had to give
was there a miscommunication
did we lose the will to live

we can't go back in time or re-write history
but you must know
a message never sent will never be received
_________

there was a weakness in the system
there was a ghost in the transmission
_________

we wondered what it was that we were building then
(and would it last)
what would I give if I could hear your voice again
__________

there was a weakness in the system
a ghost in the transmission
a failure in the circuit that we made

where was the fault in the connection
the fatal contradiction
the rent that caused the signal to degrade
__________

an image dispossessed will haunt a silent screen
the question asked, is this the story
or the story in between
__________

there was a weakness in the system
a ghost in the transmission
a failure in the circuit that we made

where was the fault in the connection
the fatal contradiction
the rent noise that caused the signal to decay
___________

this time I hope that you can hear me
i just want you near me
while the ghost in the transmission starts to fade.
