He's staring in the window watching everything I do,
And yet I am the future he could never see into.
He'd ask me if he could how I have learned to live with pain.
In turn I'd like to know just how his trust could be regained.

I'm haunted by Charlie
In the middle of the night.
I'm haunted by Charlie
Asking me to make it right.

The choices that I make are all regarded by his eyes.
Like me he's all too often overcome by sad surprise.
What can I do to teach him so he'll finally understand?
Salvation is a gift that no one forces in our hands.

I'm haunted by Charlie
And the strength of his embrace.
I'm haunted by Charlie
When the mirror shows my face.

The threads that tie us both together no one else can see.
His hands can't touch the world outside but still he reaches me.
Despite the years we've wander wasted fleeing from the door,
The call without repentance is the need I can't ignore.

I'm haunted by Charlie
And the days that cannot last.
I'm haunted by Charlie
As the specter of my past.

It's time to make my peace with youth that's grown but never gone.
The debt that I still owe I try to pay in rhyme and song.
The days have passed when words could make his path at last appear.
I speak to younger seekers in the hope that they will hear.

I'm haunted by Charlie
In the middle of the night.
I'm haunted by Charlie
Asking me to make it right.

I'm haunted by Charlie
As I bend above the page.
I'm haunted by Charlie
And the mystery of age.
