Casper

(At Apogee)

He wasn't born a ghost
That isn't how ghosts go
Casper is the ghost of a kid
Who died but doesn't know

He died young
Watching Hobo Kelly on TV
He died young
Dreaming about lots of things to be
He died young
Closing eyes to life that lies ahead
He died young
Ceasing breathing dreams and genius fled

Sitting up in bed
From a fever spell
He sees the snow which with its glow
Looks more like clouds that fell

He died young
Why is everybody way down there?
He died young
Why does everybody feel like air?
He died young
Why does everybody move so slow?
He died young
Why won't anybody say hello?

Looking at the sky
Searching for some ground
He's sure he had a mom and dad
But they're nowhere around

He died young
Why is it so quiet everyday?
He died young
Why does everybody run away?
He died young
Why is everybody so afraid?
He died young
Why does everybody have to fade?

He wasn't born a ghost
That isn't how ghosts go
He dreams within what might have been
But then he'll never know

He died young
