It's a haunted town for me,
We never meet, but still I see your face,
In every place we used to be.

In our favorite rendezvous,
Where once we dined when love was new,
I drink a toast to just the ghost of you.

My friends, by chance,
Have seen you at a dance,
And they inform me of your new romance.

Never thought that this could be,
My heart's in chains, but yours is free,
Your memory since you've gone,
Lingers on, on and on,
And makes this town a haunted town for me.
It makes this town a haunted town for me.
