Maybe a little clue about what to expect of things to come...if one could be so crazy to talk about this already

 

Omg I really hope so! :) But for now let's enjoy the amazingness of Ghost Stories :D

Holy shit this song is absolutely EPIC! I totally didn't expect anything like this. Why the hell wasn't it on the album?!

 

Guys have you figured out the lyrics yet? Because it sounds really interesting.

And this song represents the old days of A Rush of Blood to the Head!

 

Loving Will's drums in this song!!!

Absolutely agree with both points made.

I guess im the only one who doesnt like this song. For me I really expected this song to be soft and melodic sort of like oceans considering what they are talking about. Second the melody is very repetitive. I must admit bias though because to me this song sounds too much like country music and I dont like country. Its not a bad song, but definitely not one of my favorites

It's Moving to Mars all over again. Keeping such amazing track outside the album.

 

I think that's the secret to Coldplay's B-sides. They always cut out 1 or more brilliant tracks outside an album, just to keep them special.

Yeah but this is just too good don't you think?! Its probably the most interesting track from the era because theres so much going on. I don't mind All Your Friends and O 2 being left out but this song is just so great. And to think millions of people wont hear it when the album is released is madness!

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

 

 

 

Maybe I'm just a ghost

Disappear when anybody's close

Go through you ... (?)

Try to ...(?)

Maybe I'm just a ghost

(?) ... anybody knows

Maybe another ruse

Or I'm not even here

 

Yeah, everytime I try to walk through walls

My walls of fear

(?)...

 

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 path of snow/smoke

A secret (?)...

The one'll never hear

Oh maybe I'm a ghost

Spected on a (?).... clues..

Going out and arose

Something people fear

 

Yeah, everytime I try to walk through walls

I saw the (?) come clear

Once upon my fear of loving you?

When you dug a little near?

Once upon 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

I saw the come clear

Everytime I try to pull you close

You disappear

Everytime I try to pull you close

You disappear

[spoiler/]

 

p.s. Why does my spoiler thing not work? :o

Yea idk why chris is afraid of making an album last an hour. I think its because he didnt think x+y was good and that was their longest album.

I think the "a secret (?)" is "a secret that nobody knows.... no one ever hears." It was written on the album artwork.

And also the "once upon try to raise your voice" i believe is "whats the point of trying to raise your voice"

And "when you dug a little near" sounds like "when you dont believe im here"

Perhaps it is the excitment of discovering a new record but IMO this song is one of the best that they ever made.

 

I cannot explain why this song is so special to me, in fact its like a mix of all of their greatest B-sides..

This is what I have:

 

Maybe I'm just a ghost

Disappear when anybody's close

Go through you when you?????

?????

 

Maybe I'm just a ghost

Emptied by ????

????

Or am i even here?

 

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 call 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 ????

Thorn without a rose

Something people fear

 

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 call you close

You disappear

Every time I try to call you close

You disappear

 

And every time I thought I'll walk through walls

It's all becoming clear

Every time I try to call you close

You disappear

Every time I try to call you close

You disappear

In fact GS is just too short, 40 minutes, but in his way is a cool journey and I don't see this tracks making part of that journey... they are good songs but just not fit. Maybe they're just only a trailer of what is coming up, AROBTTH #2...

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

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
