I'm Haunted by You

from Island of the Dolls by American Sinner



“It was a yellow glow long into the night again. You were at the top of the stairs maybe watching over me. I’d pay for all the drinking in the morning. The first little flurry of dust settled on your urn.”

Haunted is about losing a very specific “feel” of a person when they are gone. It may be a spirit of mischief, quiet grace, or even a holiness. I sometimes try to look for it in old photos or the effects people have left behind. - Nic

I shook all night, my mind aching with hurt pride
As real as ghosts, as real as you or me
I’ll keep the story simple, the truth is more complicated
I’m haunted by you, you’ve never been, you can’t be

Last night I read your letters light with your perfume
Your soft voice always drove kind nails in me
All the sheets are hovering but then I can’t be certain
I’m haunted by you; you’ve never been; you can’t be

Last night I searched the photographs for a memory
I spent the evening clinging to your ghost

I shook all night, my mind aching with hurt pride
You’re a thousand miles away from me.
Down here, the snow is falling. Do you even sense I miss you?
I’m haunted by you…

American Sinner is a rock n' roll stiletto switchblade dance along the edge of a knife that opens up for stabbing. They are not your run-of-the-mill musical tricksters in harlequin unitards holding bouquets of flowers behind their backs. No!...they got it all -manliness like Bowie and femininity like Tina Turner. They got it all so when these boys are randy to rock, you better let 'em. ... more
