Hilltop Hoods

Hilltop Hoods - I'm A Ghost

rate me

(Verse)

Two sheets to the wind in a taxi

Two feet to the wind in the backseat

Two beeps to the car in front of us

One of us ending up wrapped around the chassis

Think about these rhymes and what they gave me

Sounds like it's wild but a microphone and two turntables save me

Took me around the world and brought me home

I've seen all these other crews beg too

Not knowing all the ways people helped them

Might not ever get a damn 'thank you'

But they're sure enough gonna get a 'you're welcome'

Matter of fact, I ain't leaving

I was here first and I don't believe them

I was here bursting listening to Primo with Gino and bursting

And missing out on being there for people in person

Cause we don't sleep when we're workin'

We don't bleed when we're hurtin'

We wear our heart on our sleeve and I'm certain

That we'll feel the burden 'til we call the curtains

You feel me?...

Do you feel me?...

The sky lights on the court, like blind man with his forces

Writing on the wall, light it up on the porches

It's 1994, five mics in The Sources

There's a might mighty roar from the crowd and of course it's

Bliss, bliss, bliss

Do you feel me?

(Hook)

I've gone though the coach and the liners

To being known for the shows and the fires

Playing packed rooms, heading to the backroom

To cool down my face with some ice from the rider

Looking out to a crowd full of lighters

And the day goes less than it's vibers

You see me walking now, I'm a ghost, I'm gone

(Verse 2)

Two sheets on a surface of water

Loose leaf running worthless in a tourner

If I could do these words justice

You'd see how much it's worth it

Or fought for, every kid that never got one mention

Every little bit of love or affection

I'm done with pretending the sun is descending

And all good things must come to an end

Close sun, swallow the baby's sin

Nothing more than affording to tame the bills

And I walk away with nothing and let me tell you something

That's fucking more than I came in with

Ya feel me? Do you feel me?

But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't grateful

For my life, for my friends, and for the faithful

It's been a ride, but there's been a few times

That I thought I lose sight when the effort was too painful

But rap gave me such inspired dream

In fact, maybe touched my life but things

Got a little crazy, and nobody would play me

The ends that plainly justify the means

At last I can see you evolve and die

It's hard to believe that all this time

That I wore my heart on my sleeve

For this art on the scene

It's gonna be hard when I leave it all behind

Ya feel me? Do you feel me?

(Hook)

I've gone though the coach and the liners

To being known for the shows and the fires

Playing packed rooms, heading to the backroom

To cool down my face with some ice from the rider

Looking out to a crowd full of lighters

And the day goes less than it's vibers

You see me walking now, I'm a ghost, I'm gone

(Interlude)

Low winter sun, light the dawn, it goes

I'm a ghost, I'm gone

Though when it's done night is on us all

I'm a ghost, I'm gone

Nowhere to run, writing's on the wall

I'm a ghost, I'm gone

So when it come rise before we fall

I'm a ghost, I'm gone

Low winter sun, light the dawn, it go

I'm a ghost, I'm gone

Broke in and done dying on us all

I'm a ghost, I'm gone

There's nowhere to run, writing's on the wall

I'm a ghost, I'm gone

So when it comes rise, rise before we fall

(Hook)

I've gone though the coach and the liners

To being known for the shows and the fires

Playing packed rooms, heading to the backroom

To cool down my face with some ice from the rider

Looking out to a crowd full of lighters

And the day goes less than it's vibers

You see me walking now, I'm a ghost, I'm gone
