Ghost Story Lyrics

Recommended Posts

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

Emptied by 'em, anybody knows

Maybe I'm on the ropes

Or I'm not even here

 

yeah

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.

I included that last part in my post above. I think initially when he wrote the song he intended for the last part to be similar to the rest of it but he changed the lyrics while recording.
