Something in the Moonlight
Words and music by Steven Grossman

It’s not that you’re here
though I know you’re away
Why do you take up my time?
Have you come to stay?
We don’t talk like we used to
In fact you never say a word
But I feel you crawling in beside me
climbing up the stairs
They try to tell me you couldn’t be there
But it’s the same preoccupation
I think of you the most
When they ask me, I ask them
Do you believe in ghosts?

Something’s in the moonlight
just outside the door
Parachuting silently
coming to haunt me some more
Something’s in the moonlight
Could it be a rebellious star?
Come to earth to tell me of a home afar

Everyone who ever was
everyone to be
What do you do with your time in eternity?
Is it thoughtless, in limbo?
Are you screaming to return?
I wonder do you have feelings
and do you have a form
Have you transcended right and wrong?
Does it matter how it happened
in a war or overdose?
When they ask us, can we tell them
we want to be a ghost


Will I recognize you?
How much more can you see?
When I make up my mind
will you come and get me?
Will I truly be ready?
Will it happen too soon?
Will I be complete and reconciled
or have to pay for what I’ve done
Will I perceive it as judgment or celestial fun?
To spend forever in the light
or forever will I roast
When they ask me, I’ll tell them
I believe in ghosts
