With a song as beautiful as this, this forward is almost redundant. Take a listen to Joshua James’ Ghost In The Town. Your ears will thank you:

Ghost In The Town

Lyrics

Dearest Emily, there’s a ghost in the town
A ghost in the town from where you came
Dearest lover, there are cracks in the wall
And voices in the hall that can’t escape
Can you remember when we all were young
When we all were much younger than today?
And have you noticed all the signs on the road
Causing all who pass to know to please be safe?

And I won’t keep quiet for the harm I’ve caused
And I can’t read the wrinkles on your face
And I don’t have penance for the things I’ve done
I can’t explain

There is a photo on the dash of our car
That has recently gone dark from all the sun
Could you imagine if our skin were to fall
Would the world just be appalled at what we’ve done?
Dearest Emily, there’s a ghost in our town
A ghost in the town from where you came
In all the nights that the dogs wouldn’t bark
I’d stare with no remark, a crying shame

There’s a crack in the center of our kitchen floor
And I’m curious of what it could destroy
As I reach my hand into the dark below
I hear your voice, I can hear it

And if you want me
Like I want you
A slow escape of all that’s made
Our purest, stolen virtue
And if you need me
Like I need you
Then that ghost that bore itself below
Won’t bother me and, baby, won’t bother you
