Bringing It Back

Words and music by Torey Adler © 2003

I bought an old house across the tracks

bringing it back, bringing it back

The roof's caved in and the walls are cracked

bringing it back, bringing it back

Stand in the front yard, you got to smile

bringing it back, bringing it back

It's gonna be such a long, long while

bringing it back, bringing it back

Bringing it back to the way it was before

Looking out the windows, standing on the floors

Bringing it back to the way it was before

'Cause I can't take it like this anymore

There's a ghost in the attic swinging his chains

I see him on the stairs every time it rains

He's got a grey tweed derby and a pinstriped suit

His mouth is big as a parachute

Bringing it back to the way it was before

Looking out the windows, standing on the floors

Bringing it back to the way it was before

'Cause I can't take it like this anymore

I guess you thought you'd never see me again

You got your ticket on that midnight train

The ghost left the attic with his chains and rags

He's in the luggage car, haunting your bags

Bringing it back to the way it was before

Looking out the windows, standing on the floors

Bringing it back to the way it was before

'Cause I can't take it like this anymore
