The Ghosts of San Francisco

by Robert Christian Anderson Professional

SONG LYRICS

Lost are the places we used to know
and used to go.
Gone are the people we hung around,
In this old town.

There was that café’ we loved
But it’s just no more.
Can all of those memories be far behind?
But as I close my eyes.
The night comes so alive.

The ghosts of San Francisco sing like shadows on the wind.
And if you listen,
Songs of more than rust and stone.
Shattered lives and broken homes.
In days to come, like days gone by
On this you can rely.
There’ll always be a dream too big to die.

Lost are the nights just watching you.
In love with loving you.
Gone like sand on evening tide.
When time was on our side.

No more dancing in summer rain.
It’s not the same.
Feels like I’ve lost part of me, too.
But I come back again.
To find myself and then.

In days to come, like days gone by
On this, you can rely.
There’ll always be a dream too big to die.

(instrumental break)

Oh, how things change.
Seems there’s just no time.
Sad how we lose it with no regrets.
But just close your eyes.
And open yourself to the night.

The ghosts of San Francisco sing like shadows on the wind.
And if you listen …..hey…
Songs of more than rust and stone.
Shattered lives and broken homes.
In days to come – like days gone by.
On this, you can rely.
There’ll always be a dream…
There’ll always be a dream…
There’ll always be a dream too big to die.
