The scars,

they run so deep.

I cry out in my sleep,

because I'm still seeing demons,

they haunt me in the night,

they're the reason why I have to

fight to stay in the light.

 

The ghost of my past,

it keeps me running fast,

so I don't have to see

all of the painful memories.

The ghost of my past,

tell me will this be the last

confession that I make to you?

I don't have much to lose except

the ghost of my past.

 

It's hard to trust people when

they never listened to me then,

and when I trusted them,

they used every word I said

against me.

 

An echo of their cold voices

still lingers in my head.

I just wish they would

go away.

 

The ghost of my past,
it keeps me running fast,
so I don't have to see
all of the painful memories.
The ghost of my past,
tell me will this be the last
confession that I make to you?
I don't have much to lose except
the ghost of my past.

 

And I'm still seeing demons,

they haunt me in the night,

they laugh while I cry,

and then they say goodbye.

But they come back

with a ghost.

 

The ghost of my past,

it keeps me running fast,

so I don't have to see

all of the painful memories.

The ghost of my past,

he tells me that this will be the last

confession that I make to you.

I have nothing left to lose.

I am now

a ghost of my past.

Sorry, it's being weird. It's Casey who said that. And this, of course.

Thank you so much! And um... it doesn't really have a genre, I guess you could just call it singer/songwriter, it's kinda my own thing
