lyrics

I grew up on the corner of Saginaw and Feher
In a brick house where a women was shot and killed
In her bedroom, in the closet, that's all we ever knew

The neighbors tried to warn my mom and dad when they moved in
They said to sprinkle salt around the house to make her go away
But they didn't, I wish they would have, because she'd still visit
In our sleep

We could hear her footsteps
pacing up and down the hall
I saw her shadow
Standing over my bed
She would throw parties
In the kitchen late at night
We could smell her coffee
and her cigarettes

When I went to get my things, she said she missed me so much
When I moved out, she slammed the door behind me shut
She asked if my sister was outside
She said she had something to tell her
But we never went back inside
For all we know she's still in there.
