Ghost On The Beach
Lyrics and music c. Steve Waddington

I saw her again last night
Her shadow passed over me
Her feet never touched the sand
Walking straight for the sea
I held out my hand but I couldn't reach
The Ghost On The Beach

I'm not the only one
Who's seen her here before
The lost and the lonely ones
Walk with her on the shore
I want to touch her but I just can't reach
The Ghost On The Beach

Here's to the lonely, crying in the night
When tears are the only things you have that you hold
'til you know things will turn out alright

I think of a thousand times
I wanted you here with me
Now you're so far away
And it will never be
And all that I want is just out of reach
Like A Ghost On The Beach

Our love is something that's just out of reach
Like A Ghost On The Beach
