    Words fail me so I post

    Damien Dempsey – Ghosts Of Overdoses Lyrics
    Hey little baby I want to take you from here
    Hey little baby I don’t want to see you on the gear
    It’s so hard to find your way back
    Hey little baby it’s every parent’s worst fear
    For their child to end up on smack
    There was pills, there was tabs
    There was pain and needle jabs
    And the ghosts overdoses
    Replace the ghosts of tuberculosis
    There was dust and there was liquid
    You could buy for just a few quid
    And escape out of the jungle
    To return and crawl and stumble
    Hey little baby I want to take you from here
    I want to take you away from here
    Hey little baby I don’t want to see you on the gear
    It’s so hard to find your way back
    Hey little baby it’s every parent’s worst fear
    For their child to end up on smack
    You lie, high, cry “please don’t go”
    Now I walk along these streets
    All the ghosts, they walk their beats
    Up to flats and into stairwells
    Where they lie in heroin hell
    Little kids they walk right through them
    I just hope they don’t become them.

    PeaceLove All Ways

    @Richard
    God bless your son. I am sure you do good works in his memory. The old saying, “pray as if everything depends on God, and work as if everything depends on you.
    God writes straight with crooked lines…. He was met with Divine Mercy and truth.

    The Arlen Roth Band was awesome…had never seen him live before…great stuff! And, G.E. is always outstanding. Speaking of Spencer, he is a class act and a super human being…he is full of dignity and grace and great music…a true inspiration. And, Hurl is another top notch cat stepping up and in for Spencer. FPR is hallowed ground…partially because it resides in beautiful SE Ohio and even more so because of the wonderful hosts, dedicated staff, musicians, and fans. Keep on truckin’ !!!
