The Ghost I Can't Give Up

I threw all the cigarettes away

I save a little money each week for a rainy day

I left all my troubled ways back there in the dust

But you're the ghost I can't give up

 

I got some paint and I fixed up the place

I always have a kind word and a smile on my face

But all the best intentions sometimes aren't good enough

You're the ghost I can't give up

 

I turn the lights on everywhere

It's funny I still see things in this house that aren't there

I've changed everything there is to change, except my luck

You're the ghost I can't give up

 

I don't chase every woman that I see

And I keep all the liquor under lock and key

I bought brand new clothes and I sold that rusted truck

But you're the ghost I can't give up
