lyrics

Better angels make poor reading
Truth is such a waste
The devil is in the details
Of your sordid past
Make the story fit
Put your memory to the test
Give to me the juicy bits
I’ll fill in the rest

I’m a ghostwriter
Putting thoughts inside your head
Pay me to be your conscience
Invent things you never said

You can fill whole chapters
With vague vignettes
Pages of prose and wit
Put your patience to the test
Names, dates and numbers
Are subject to change
Only lack of imagination
Prevents your turning the page

I’m a ghostwriter
Putting thoughts inside your head
Pay me to be your conscience
Invent things you never said
I’m a ghostwriter
Putting thoughts inside your head
Pay me to be your conscience
Create a life you never had
