'Ghosts In My Heart' by Mariee Sioux (Song, Video - still image)



Lyrics:

We re counting in the dark in our sleep
You told me graves are shaped like hives of sunbeams
Counting in the dark in our sleep
You told me graves are shaped like hives of sunbeams

And a hammer's to our head and you're starving yourself
And a hammer's to our head and you're starving yourself

But little kids' mommas have your name in their mouths
And little kids' mommas have your name in their mouths
And oh, even my momma's got your name in her mouth
In her mouth, in her mouth
In her mouth, in her mouth
In her mouth, in her mouth

Dancing in the dark in our sleep
With hallelujahs, hiding and then seek
Dancing in the dark in our sleep
With hallelujahs, hiding and then seek

And a hammer's to our heads and we're starving ourselves
A hammer's to our heads and we're starving ourselves

But little kids' mommas have your name in their mouths
And little kids' mommas have your name in their mouths
And oh, even my momma's got your name in her mouth
In her mouth, in her mouth
In her mouth, in her mouth
In her mouth, in her mouth

And the ghosts in this town, they can walk the walk
Every kid in this town can talk the talk
The ghosts in this town, they are holding their breaths
But the ghosts in my heart, they can't get no rest
No rest, no rest, no rest
No rest, no rest

Little kids' mommas have your name in their mouths
Well, little kids' mommas have your name in their mouths
And oh, even my momma has your eyes in her mouth
And my momma has your eyes in her mouth
And my momma has your eyes in her mouth
In her mouth, in her mouth, in her mouth
In her mouth, in her mouth

And the ghosts in this down, they can walk the walk
Every kid in this town they can talk the talk
The ghosts in this town, they are holding their breaths
But the ghosts in my heart, they can't get no rest
No rest, no rest, no rest
And the ghosts in my heart
They can't get no rest
