    Her ghost is six or so feet tall
    And the lights in the house are dim
    His voice still echoes through the hall
    She can't get away from him

    I clear the couch off and I sit
    She hangs up the phone and then
    She says she can't believe he quit
    But I know he'll be back again

    Every hour on the hour
    He will reappear and make it clear that he's around
    It's not your average social call
    He does it all without a sound

    Her ghost is propped up in the hall
    He speaks no evil there
    He doesn't notice me at all
    I find it a bit unfair

    I'm bathed in shadow from that wall
    I know he'll be in the air

    Every hour on the hour
    She'll watch her apparition stare her down, but pass her by
    And I've no ammunition
    I'm the one who's being exorcised

    Every hour on the hour
    Every moment all my power
    And every where I turn
    I tend to learn that she's got
    Memories that never burn

    And this is of concern and I prepare to go
    'Cause this I know
    That though he's out of sight
    He's in her mind and in my hair
    I'm tiring of this fight
    Besides it's getting me nowhere

    Her ghost makes all of this occur
    He does it breathlessly
    So long as he's the life in her
    He'll be the death of me
