lyrics

You said a ghost lived in your rooming house,
Then I saw her that night, she gave me an awful fright.
You said my darling that isn’t to be feared, she smiled at me in the mirror.

They say that Nova Scotia’s known for the spirit’s that roam the streets,
For the spirits that roam the high seas.
Since that explosion in 1917, when the bodies laid rest,
And the soul’s were setting free.
Who would have known you’d set free too? Who would have known you’d cut loose?

I recall that strange night in Halifax, the rain railed against the window pane,
And your own pain was quiet.
I loved you then like I never had before,
Not even when we camped out in the earth’s core.

Your spirit sails the great Kakisa, perhaps you made it to India,
Where the red and the gold colour your soul.
One day I’ll make it back to that old rooming house, to see if you’re near.
Perhaps you visited your folks on the coast, left a message with the girl in the mirror.
