From the recording The Turning Stone

Lyrics

This is the dark
This is the night

Shall I wait here
For to see the light

What is that book
You’re preaching from

Oh where’s that page
Where has it gone
Oh will you tell me if the day
The day will come

Oh will you tell me if my time
My time is done

Oh will it turn my father’s tears
His tears to joy 

Cause I’m the ghost of Dan the boy

Was it you that night
On new years eve

Was it you that lived
Not far from me

What’s the bottle that you brought
You’re drinking from

What’s the bottle that you brought
Before I was gone

Oh will you tell me if the day
The day will come

Oh will it tell me if my time
My time is done

Oh will it turn my father's tears
His tears to joy

Cause I’m the ghost of Dan the boy

And I’m never coming back
Back to my home

You went out in the night
Searching for me

By the railroad track by the cold marina
Where are the signs
Outside my home

Have they given up hope
For to find my soul
Oh will it tell me if the day
The day will come

Oh will it tell me if my time
My time is done

Oh will it turn my father’s tears
His tears to joy

Cause I’m the ghost of Dan the boy

And I’m never coming back
Back to my home
