lyrics

where do the ghosts go
when the houses come down?
do they dissolve into the dirt?
are they driven out of town?
there's endless empty storefronts now
along our avenue
and towers lounging in the sun
with nothing else to do

what is this world?
what is this world?
what is this world?
what is this world?
where does it end?

where did our handprints go
when they tore out the old cement?
when the new families came
wonder where the old ones went
there's echoes in the alleyway
and shadows on the wall
the branches hang
beneath the hopeless weight of it all

what is this world?
what is this world?
what is this world?
what is this world?
what is this world?
what is this world?
where does it end?

where did your ghost go?
'cause i can't feel you here at all

about

Matthew Connor Boston, Massachusetts

Matthew Connor is a crooner for the 21st century, writing heart-wrenching songs that combine the windswept ideals of classic American balladry with stark depictions of modern-day alienation. The Boston-based Connor has a haunting voice that conjures ghosts of past heartbreaks, and he pairs it with spectral guitars that recall country tearjerkers and alt-pop brooding.
