Sinéad:
Do you remember that sunny day,
Somewhere in London,
In the middle of nowhere?
Didn't have nothing to do that day.
Didn't wanna do nothing, anyway.
Shane:
You got a way of walking,
Sinéad:
You got a way of talking.
Shane:
And there's something about you,
And now I know I never ever
Want to be without you.
both:
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
Shane:
Of your precious love,
Of your precious love.
Shane:
The first time I saw you
Standing in the street,
You looked so cool you could have
Put out Vietnam.
Sinéad:
All the girls ask, "What's he like?"
I said, "He's kind of shy, but that's the kind
Of girl I am. He's my kind of guy."
both:
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
Shane:
Of your precious love,
Of your precious love.
Shane:
I'll build my world around you.
I'll bless the day I found you.
Sinéad:
I'll stand beside you and I'll never leave
Or tell you all those (both) lies that you'd
Never believe.
both:
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
I want to be haunted by the ghost,
Shane:
Of your precious love,
Of your precious love.
