lyrics

(Verse 1)
The coldness around you
That you just can't shake
Is the leftover romance
That I could no longer take
The freezing temp of the air
Turns your breath to ice
It mimics the hollow promises
You said to me to entice

(Bridge)
I hid my truth in your plain sight
I cried myself to sleep at night
There was nothing left I could do
Than to be brave and leave you

(Chorus)
I'm now the ghost
That walks beside you
Or that gives you chills
When I pass by
I'll forever haunt
Your past life
As you know it wasn't me
Who didn't try

(Verse 2)
A figment of your mind
You swear you saw me there
The echo of my laughter
The sweet scent of my hair
Creeks on the floorboard
The steps I used to make
There's no-one there when you call
You're hearing your mistake

(Repeat Bridge)

(Repeat Chorus)

I haunted myself by staying
In this tomb we call a bond
The denial of it weakened me
To a point where I had to respond
I buried you a long time ago
I said my prayers and goodbyes
You went from a friend to a foe
As your love fed me with lies

(Repeat Chorus)

about

Helen Culver London, UK

"The dark synthesised sound of Helen Culver adds something minimalist to the dimensions of play. Her vocals have a sublime essence that ordains within each track in a way that keeps everything in focus. The expansive and fluid tempo is neatly at home. This is cleverly worked and because of that emphasis everything comes together in a defined way that is brilliantly applied."
