I told the old folks in a bar far away,
The story of my stupid heart in one day,
Rock safe foundations no hammers no nails,
But all that I'm sure of is I'm set to fail.

They said you've been abducted by the ghost of Wales,
Did she tell you her stories?
Did she tell you her tales?
A silhouette so gracious with the wind in her sails,
That you'll fall in love with the ghost,
The Ghost of Wales.

When can I hold you like that every night?
Safe as my patience and warm as the light,
It seems when I text these days you can't reply,
Hot like an old stove or colder than ice.

She said under this vail ain't the Ghost of Wales,
Just a shadow of glory in an untold story,
That's why I call you for telling it for me,
I don't want no-one to know,
I'm the Ghost of Wales.

I told her I'd noticed a change in her eyes,
She told me she'd seen through the truth in my lies,
And all of this time I was still hypnotised,
By the same look she's given me thousands of times.

I said I don't care for no Ghost of Wales,
For I've seen the beauty shine out and straight through me,
Watch all the lifeboats as they're travelling to me,
To rescue your soul from the ghost,
The Ghost of Wales.

I said I don't care for no Ghost of Wales,
Just swallow your pride,
And go with the ride,
If God knows I've failed he'll know that I've tried,
He knows that I'll die by the ghost,
The ghost of Wales.
