Kristin Hersh – Your Ghost

25 Jul, 2012

Album: Hips and Makers (1994), Reprise

Fragile tones of an acoustic guitar are pervaded with ceremonial silence, a voice full of emotion caress’s the heart, however, it also sends shivers down the spine. Our loved ones remain with us forever. Although they have left, they haven’t closed the door and through it’s crack they come to us in thoughts henceforward. The trails of memories of them are indelibly imprinted on doormat.

 

 

[-]  [+]  Lyrics:


If I walk down this hallway tonight
It’s too quiet, so I pad through the dark
And call you on the phone, push your old numbers
And let your house ring till I wake you ghost

Let him walk down your hallway
It’s not this quiet, slide down your receiver
Sprint across the wire
Follow my number, slide into my hand

It’s the blaze across my nightgown
It’s the phone’s ring

I think last night
You were driving circles around me
I think last night
You were driving circles around me

I think last night
You were driving circles around me

I can’t drink this coffee till I put you in my closet
Let him shoot me down, let him call me off
I take it from his whisper, you’re not that tough

It’s the blaze across my nightgown
It’s the phone’s ring

I think last night
You were driving circles around me
I think last night
You were driving circles around me

I think last night
You were driving circles around me

 

Songwriters: Kristin Hersh

I have always liked to discover new and also forgotten sounds and enthusiastically share it with anyone who was willing to listen to my passion, without any genre prejudices. Writing a blog about music is my way of paying back some of the energy I‘ve received from music over the years.

    Toto je bez debaty jeden z najlepsich albumov ake som kedy pocul. Nielen Your Ghost ale na kompletku. to co Kristin sama zo svojim hlasom a ciernym Martinom dokazala – je neuveritelne !
    Well done :)

    Je to paráda od začiatku do konca. Veľmi silný album, vďaka ktorému som objavil Kristin Hersh a spätne aj Throwing Muses. Som celkom rád, že si mi ho vtedy požičal ;)
