could not be stopped When my chance came to be king The ghosts of my life Blew wilder than the wind Well I'm feeling nervous And I find myself alone The simple life's no longer there Once I was so sure Now the doubt inside my mind Comes and goes but leads nowhere Just when I think I'm winning When. I've broken every door The ghosts of my life Blow wilder than before Just when I thought I could not be stopped When my chance came to be king The ghosts of my life.
