~Ghost of Love~

It is amazing to me as a father and a man as I blow the dust off some of this old work. Ghost of Love is another song which developed when my then nine-year-old son, Tommy, handed me a chord progression he had written. I wrote the lyrics and my younger brother, Nick, and I kicked it around a bit before rehearsal one night. It had no place in the hot rod rock & roll band we had at the time. The Bloodline project is all the more wonderful because , once again, Tommy, a grown man now with two sons of his own, is playing the chords that poured from his spirit when he was a boy. I get the chance to sing with what I have come to think of as my 'now voice' in much of the work on this album. That voice is mellow but can still growl when needed, tempered by the lives of my five children and the magick of that boy's guitar. He is guitarist in a group called 'IllicitSects'. Check 'em out on the internet if you get a chance

~Ghost of Love~

Don’t stop walking
Don’t stop talking
Don’t let the tears fall from your eyes
Don’t look to me
See right through me
The ghost of love has got me hypnotized
Oh, you're the ghost of love

Silent wishes - Dreamer’s kisses
Lost in the sweetness of your sighs
Shadows falling - Lovers calling
The ghost of love has got me hypnotized
Oh, you’re the ghost of love

Lady, lady - Night time lady
Hold me in the winter of your arms
Lady, lady - Illusion’s lady
Wrap me in the
soft clouds of your charms
Lady, lady - Lady, lady
The ghost of love has got me hypnotized

You’re the lady lady-Destiny lady
Lead me to the land of fortunes crossed
Lady, lady - Silken lady
You’re the queen,
the dream of lovers lost
Lady, lady - Lady, lady
The ghost of love has got me hypnotized
You’re the ghost of love

I am fading - Lady, lady
Melting in the teardrops from your eyes
What is real - Lady feel
The ghost of love has got me hypnotized
Oh, you’re the ghost of love

Lady, lady
Oh, you’re the ghost of love
Lady, lady
Oh, you’re the ghost of love
Lady, lady

I loved the use of language. Great song. Rolled off my tongue. Great you have a relationship like this with your son that he can pass on what you taught him.
