What have I done wrong,

To keep me from your mind?

Forgotten and left aside,

A memory of one who came before.


A ghost of a life that was not mine.

A memory of one who shares my face.

Lost in an endless tide, reaching but never touching.


Summers in the sun, the surf at our feet

Summers in the sand, drawing, and laughing

Summers on the street, bikes and games and more


A ghost of a life that was not mine

A memory of one who shares my face.

Lost in an endless tide, reaching but never touching.


My childhood lost in a daze

My Innocence long since forgotten

My memories fade away.


A ghost of a life that was not mine

A memory of one who shares my face.

Lost in an endless tide, reaching but never touching.
