The Ghost of a Rose

from For An Empty Theater by Erik Ritland

/

lyrics

Do you ever think that you might be wrong
That the anger in your heart is misplaced
Do you feel power at your fingertips
That you can’t find otherwise
Are you sad

We are missing something
Try to hide it but it shows
The ghost of a rose

I look in the mirror and my face is blank
It's so hard to come to terms with mistakes
Aiming at the other
At least I think I am
Finding out the hardest truth
That it’s me

We are missing something
Try to hide it but it shows
The ghost of a rose

All the theaters
On the city's busy streets
Are empty now

We are missing something
Try to hide it but it shows
The ghost of a rose
