lyrics

He kept a diary
until the day he died
He wrote of the dreams he had
and memories that were never built to last
and every page that passed
has outlived the man who was there to give them life.
There's a soul on every curve of the letters in each word
and in every line I hear just what he meant.

All those times I could have died
Were all the times that I was alive
I am a lucky one (a lucky one)
and I won't throw it all away
just to live another day
someday that day will come. (that day will come)
I'll catch that ghost train out of town.
and I'll look back and take a bow
and I'll know just where I've been and where I'll go.
But for now I don't know

Long before I was born he wrote a line
of a love some would feel if they'd lived a fortunate life
"You should have seen my smile on my face that I had with her that one immortal night."
"I cursed at the moon for not being bright enough to shed more light"
"lucky for me my fingers don't need eyes to see. "
"and they showed me the light."

All those times I could have died
Were all the times that I was alive
I am a lucky one (a lucky one)
and I won't throw it all away
just to live another day
someday that day will come. (that day will come)
I'll catch that ghost train out of town.
and I'll look back and take a bow
and I'll know just where I've been and where I'll go.
But for now I don't know

The day he left this world
his story ended and his last page turned
and when I saw all that was lost from the man who such thoughts
I felt as empty as the paper
and I yearned for one more day
and so I picked up his pen
It felt so heavy in my shaky right hand
I thought I guess it's up to me
To extend his legacy
To show the love and life he left for me weren't lived in vain

All those times I could have died
Were all the times that I was alive
I am a lucky one (a lucky one)
and I won't throw it all away
just to live another day
someday that day will come. (that day will come)
I'll catch that ghost train out of town.
and I'll look back and take a bow
and I'll know just where I've been and where I'll go.
But for now I don't know
