Db
I've been ghosting
Db.                 -E- -F-
I've been ghosting  a  long
Bbm      Db
Ghost in your house
Gb
ghost in your arms
Db                    Db                -E-  -F-
When you're tossing, when you turn in your sleep
Bbm     Db        Gb
it's because I'm ghosting your dreams

Pre-Chorus:
Gb             Ab
And this is why I have decided
Db              Gb
to pull these old white sheets from my head
Gb                Ab
I'll leave them folded neat and tidy
Db               Gb                           Gb  Db7
so that you'll know I'm out of hiding

Verse:
Db
I've been ghosting
Db                  -E- -F-
I've been ghosting  a  long
Bbm       Db          Gb
Ghost in the world, ghost with no home
Db           Db          -E- -F-
I remember, I remember the days
Bbm        Db      Gb
when I'd make you oh so afraid

Pre-Chorus:
Gb           Ab
And this is why I have decided
Db               Gb
to leave your house and home unhaunted
Gb                Ab
You don't need poltergeists for sidekicks
Db                    Gb
You don't need treats

You don't need treats

You don't need no Halloween
                  Gb
You don't need treats

B
Hey
                           Bb7
Would it be so bad if I stayed?
                              A
I'm just a ghost out of his grave
                           Ab
and I can make love in my grave
                             Bm
I won't put white into your hair
                             A
I won't make noises in your stairs
                            Ab
I will be kind and I'll be sweet
                                     G
if you stop staring straight through me

Pre-Chorus:
Gb             Ab
And this is why I have decided
Db              Gb
to pull these old white sheets from my head
Gb                Ab
I'll leave them folded neat and tidy
Db               Gb
so that you'll know I'm out of hiding
Gb           Ab A
And this is why I have decided
Db               Gb
to leave your house and home unhaunted
Gb                Ab

You don't need treats
                Db
You don't need tricks
                    Gb
You don't need no halloween
                Gb
you don't need treats
                Ab

                Db

                  Gb
you don't need no hallow's eve
                  Gb
