I saw a ghost the other nite, She looked a lot like you
Through these wounded eyes, you never did look better
Drinking whiskey with them barroom boys, all vying for your hand
And, an invitation back to your room when the nite grew later

I watched this dirty little scene a thousand times before
It takes me back into the days when we were together
When I'd plead with you to come on home and show me I was wrong
You'd laugh at me, say "I thought that you knew me better"

Still, I saved up all my wages and I offered you a ring
I sold my best guitar and I borrowed from my Brother
Why you ever did accept it, I guess I'll never understand
Nor forgive myself that I ever made the offer

You told me it was nothing, but the truth was in your eyes
It wasn't so much what you did, but, that you chose to lie
I could've walked away right then, I suppose I should've run
Now, I'm living with the choice I made and the things that I have done

December is the darkest month, 'least that's what I've been told
It sure felt dark that Winter nite by the Lake so long ago
A Storm set in and the Wind blew hard and I drank that bottle down
And, tried my best to forget as I drove back into town

Now, all these boats need bailing and the water's getting high
It won't be long 'til all these lakes are frozen
Like the memory of you screaming on a dark December nite
In my deepest dreams, I cannot forget you falling

I saw a ghost the other nite, She looked a lot like you...
