Here comes the night
Like a guillotine might
In a ghostly Parisian tale

Execution is swift
As a soul floats adrift
From the rose he held beyond the pale

And the wind will rise
By the river side
And fill the sails
With the Banshees wails

Verse 2

Shivers to chill
All thats dead somehow still
Travels back through the shadows of time

Visions appear
On the taste of a tear
What was lost has now comeback to find

Getting colder now
Looking over my shoulder now
Was that you in the crowd
Am i dreaming out loud

Or am i Haunted ?

Verse 3

All jumpy and tight
As it fades in the light
And it flickers and floats through the dark

All reason deserves
With her comingly curves
Will be lost if i put out the spark

From the token vow
To the furrowed brow
Where its all broken bone
And its written in stone

And garding the tomb
Sits the devil one
Starved to the end
But the taste still lingers on
And on

When your Haunted

Verse 4

I can still see her walking by my window
See the sun shining in through the trees
Feel the wind on my face
As i’m running down the road
Trying to catch some lost hope on the breeze

And i’m pushing through all of these people
When i really don’t believe my eyes
Cos there was nobody there
And i’m stuck in the glare
Of the sun
Under Rue de Bagnolet sky’s
