Haunted ~ The Writer's Vision

~ Haunted ~ ~~~~~~~~~~~
Ba da pa pa ~ ba da pa pa...

Come here?
Pretty please?
Can you tell me where I am? You...won't you say something? I need to get my bearings... I'm lost...
...And the shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted...
By the lives that I have loved, and actions I have hated. I'm haunted...by the lives that wove the web...
...inside my haunted head.

Ba da pa pa ~ ba da pa pa...

Don't cry.
There's always a way. Here in November in this house of leaves, we'll pray. Please, I know it's hard to believe, to see a perfect forest through so many splintered trees... You and me...
...And these shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted...
By the lives that I have loved and actions I have hated.

I'm haunted...
By the promises I've made and others I have broken.

I'm haunted...

By the lives that wove the web...
...Inside my haunted head.

Hallways...

Always...

I'll always want you.
I'll always need you.
I'll always love you.
~ And I will always miss you...

Ba da pa pa ~ ba da pa pa...

Come here.
No, I won't say please. One more look at the ghost before I'm gonna make it leave.

Come here.
I've got the pieces here. Time to gather up the splinters, build a casket for my tears.

~ I'm haunted ~
by the lives that I have loved...

~I'm haunted ~
by the promises I've made...

~ I'm haunted ~
By the hallways in this tiny room, the echoes there, of me and you, the voices that are carrying this tune...

Ba da pa pa ~ ba da pa pa...
Ba da pa pa ~ ba da pa pa...

Haunted
Lyrics by Poe
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Where do we creative types get all those ideas?
From the lives, voices and visions within our haunted heads.
We always want them. We always need them. We always love them.
And we always miss them...
...once the the story is finally written and done.

  3. I'm mainly haunted by the visions of furious agents screaming "how dare you offer us this crap?" Go buy yourself some Talent first.

  4. I have this CD. It's very good. Her brother is Mark Z. Danielewiski, the author of the cult classic House of Leaves.

    They must be a talented family.
