Holy Ghost

lyrics

When all my weight is gone
and I'm projected here
like a good idea
on it's way to something real
well, I'm a foolish child
and I'm just thick with poems
about some old mistakes
that I just can't shake

and it's all right
it's all right
it's all right
when you're here
it's all right
it's all right
it's all right
when you're here
when you're here with me

well it's a broken game
because the rules don't work
you can try to build a dream
you might end up in the dirt
all there's left to do
is rise up again
when you've got nothing to lose
aside from everything

and it's all right
it's all right
it's all right
when you're here
it's all right
it's all right
it's all right
when you're here
when you're here with me

it's all right
it's all right
when you're here

when all my weight is gone
and I'm a Holy Ghost
with all those shades of grey
and all those empty toes
when you're breathing loud
and I hear those wings
I can taste that smile
and I can feel those lips

and it's all right
it's all right
it's all right
when you're here
it's all right
it's all right
it's all right
when you're here
when you're here
when you're here
when you're here with me

about

Krister Axel Ashland, Oregon

I started playing piano in White Plains, New York because our black upright piano fascinated me and my sisters hated their piano lessons. That was in the 80's and I have never stopped writing songs. I write love songs and political songs but mostly love songs.

I play a lot of acoustic guitar, some electric, and different kinds of piano plus accordions and harmoniums and other assorted weird shit.
