This is as far as could get for the lyrics...


Maybe I'm just a ghost
Disappear when anybody's close
Go through you when you travel
Travel over near
Maybe I'm just a ghost
Emptied by 'em, anybody knows
Maybe another ruse
Or I'm not even here

Yeah, everytime I try to walk through walls
My walls of fear
What's the point of feeling love for you
When you don't believe I'm here

Once upon try to raise your voice
If no one ever hears
Everytime I try to pull you close
you disappear

Maybe I'm a ghost
Just a whisper in a puff of smoke
A secret that no body knows
The one'll never hear
Oh maybe I'm a ghost
A spectre on a roller-coast.
Thorn without a rose
Something people fear

Yeah, everytime I try to walk through walls
It's all become clear
What's the point of feeling love for you
When you don't believe I'm here
What's the point of saying I said rescue me
If no one ever hears
Everytime I try to pull you close
You disappear
Everytime I try to pull you close
You disappear

And everytime I try to walk through walls
It's all become clear
Everytime I try to pull you close
You disappear
Everytime I try to pull you close
You disappear​

Please add your own thoughts so we can decipher the lyrics! :)

posted this on the song thread too. this is what i hear:


Maybe I'm just a ghost
Disappear when anybody's close
Go through you when you travel, travel near

Maybe I'm just a ghost
Emptied by anybody knows (?)
Maybe I'm a ruse
Or I'm not even here

Yeah

Every time I try to walk through walls
More walls appear
What's the point of feeling love for you
When you don't believe I'm here
What's the point of trying to raise your voice
If no one ever hears
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

Maybe I'm a ghost
Just a whisper in a puff of smoke
Secret that nobody knows
No one will ever hear

Or maybe I'm a ghost
Specter on a roller-coast
Thorn without a rose
Something people fear

Yeah

And every time I thought I'll walk through walls
It's all becoming clear
What's the point of feeling love for you
When you don't believe I'm here
What's the point of saying "rescue me"
If no one ever hears
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

And every time I thought I'll walk through walls
It's all becoming clear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear


for me, this is the best lyrical work from Chris since viva.

I'm not a native speaker but I think I got it almost perfectly right:


Maybe I'm just a ghost
Disappear when anybody's close
Go through you when you travel
Travel over near

Maybe I'm just a ghost
Emptied by 'em, anybody knows
Maybe I'm on a rose
Or am I even here?

yeah

Every time I try to walk through walls
More walls appear
What's the point in feeling love for you
When you don't believe I'm here
What's the point in trying to raise your voice
If no one ever hears
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

Maybe I'm a ghost
Just a whisper in a perfect smoke
A secret that nobody knows
No one will ever hear

Oh maybe I'm a ghost
Specter of the wrong cause
Fallen out of rose
Something people fear

yeah

And every time I find I'm off the walls
It's all becoming clear
What's the point in feeling love for you
When you don't believe I'm here
What's the point in saying 'Rescue me!'
If no one ever hears
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

And every time I find I'm off the walls
It's all becoming clear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappe...!

Maybe I'm a ruse....


...sounds more like it's 'Maybe I'm on the ropes...'

The other lines that are bugging me are....... '...emptied by'em anybody knows..."

Something about those ^^seems off, only because the meaning is kinda unclear???....which of course doesn't mean they're wrong.

AND

...."Spectre on a ?????.....ahhhhhhh!!!! no clue!!!

C'mon people who are good at this shit, figure it out for me!!!

Maybe I'm just a ghost
Disappear when anybody's close
Go through you when you try to hold
Try to hold me near


Maybe I'm just a ghost
Emptied by 'em, anybody knows
Maybe I'm on the ropes
Or I'm not even here


yeah

Every time I try to walk through walls
More walls appear
What's the point in feeling love for you

This song is my favorite on the album. I think they lyrics are stellar (even though there are a few tiny question marks on what they exactly say). I can't stop listening to it!

Fiiiiiiiiiiiiinally! This song is one of my favorites on the album and I've been dying to know those words that you can't really understand.

Maybe I'm just a ghost
Disappear when anybody's close
Go through you when you try to hold
Try to hold me near

Maybe I'm just a ghost
Emptier than anybody knows
Maybe I'm on the ropes
Or I'm not even here
Yeah!

Every time I try to walk through walls
More walls appear
Whats the point of feeling love for you when you don't believe I'm here
Whats the point of trying to raise your voice if no one ever hears
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

Maybe I'm a ghost
Juts a whisper in a puff of smoke
A secret that nobody knows
No one will ever hear

Or maybe I'm a ghost
A specter on a roller coaster
A thorn without a rose
Something people fear
Yeah!

Every time I thought I walk through walls
Its all become clear
Whats the point of feeling love for you when you don't believe I'm here
Whats the point in saying rescue me if no one ever hears
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

Every time I thought I walk through walls
Its all become clear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear


Great lyrics. I'm yet again frustrated this song wasn't on the album!

I wonder why the image didn't include the last bit of the song where the chorus changes slightly.
