Song #15: The Haunted One

[Piano playing calmly]

People say
that I am shielded
People say
that I am staring
into the dark
Waiting for my rescue
Waiting for a change in life
And they won’t believe
that someone’s haunting me
(ha-aunting me)

[Drums introducing harder music]

‘Cause I am the haunted one
[Short (~3 seconds) drum solo]
Wolves run around
tracing my heart
and I am the haunted one
the one
the ha-aunted one

[Calmer music once again]

I hear the howling
I feel the howling
I see the howling
I can… touch the howling
I hear screams every night
that no-one else would hear
Cause I…
I am the haunted one

[Clean, yet fast piano play, slow singing]

A child yet wreckless
was me without a mess
Parent’s ultimate pride
Ay, trashed before the tide
You say I’m out of touch
You say I’m hard too reach

[Clean, fast piano solo]

‘Cause I am the haunted one
[Introducing drums]
Wolves run around
tracing my heart
and I am the haunted one
the one
the ha-aunted one

[Drums solo]

‘Cause I am the haunted one
Wolves run around
tracing my heart
and I am the haunted one
the one
the ha-aunted one

[Rougher vocals, almost screaming]

You will never save me from the dark
The ghosts in me won’t let you save me from the dark
[Introducing backing vocals]
They want me
They have me
They need me
to survive
[Every instrument but clean piano stops]
You will never save me from the dark
The ghosts in me won’t let you save me from the dark
[Piano solo (~15-20 seconds)]
They won’t let you save me from the dark…
[Drums playing djungle rhythm, finishing off with rapid non-melodical drum solo]
