about

Graham Porter challenged Dr. Lindyke to write a song about something or someone being haunted.

lyrics

There's a light in the sky
And through the oaken leaves and Spanish moss it shines
And you and I
Once again keep our date with the constellations

On a highway to nowhere
Through a tunnel of oak
A bitter sweet reunion
A past life, a lost soul lingers within me still

And here I stand beneath the Blood Moon
As I have for twenty years
Trembling with the expectation
That I'll find you here.

And I can see you
Pulling the mist like a cloak about you
And I can feel you
As cold as never caring

Do you bring darkness down on me
Or is it just the night?
Will you escape my tender touch
As we relive our dance tonight?

The breath of life escaping
Through my fingers slipping
May the the Earth embrace you
Where I left you 'neath the Blood Moon long ago.

And here I stand beneath the Blood Moon
As I have for twenty years
Trembling with the expectation
That I'll find you here,
Where I left you 'neath the Blood Moon long ago.
