about

All These Ghosts (All Together) started as another song that never quite worked. After the passing of some South Dakota friends I was able to take some of those old lyrics and find new meaning in them.

lyrics

All These Ghosts (All Together)

I'm like Christmas lights still up on Labor Day
Something from another time and place casting a familiar shade
I keep seeing things out the corner of my eye
Faces and places from a former life

When we were all together...

Sometimes I feel like flyin' dandilions
Sometimes this city feels like it ain't even tryin'
I'm workin' to hold on to things that I can barely remember
I'm tryin' to keep on reminding you of when we were all together

When we were all together...

The brightest lights of the city scape just run up my electric bill
My full moon like ancient runes dancing on my window sill
Cameron's dog still walks these streets and everybody knows her name
We may change, but all these ghosts are the same

From the creatures swimming down in the deep blue sea
To the spirits flying around snowy mountain peaks
There's one little town where the road goes ever, ever on
Not where I was born, but it's where I come from

When I was all together...

Five minute drive to the midnight sky, shoulder to shoulder stars
Down in the dirt up through the universe, capture in a jar
Somewhere on Dakota Street I carved everybody's name
We may change, but all these ghosts are the same

I watched you rise up to the sky leaving us in pouring rain
We may change, but all these ghosts are the same
