Ghosts of You

Lyrics

(verse 1)

My heart is dead lying on your bed, it’s cold
As your arctic wind blows
The chill in my spine is probably from all the time that we spent
Time I know regret

(chorus)

And it feels like there’s ghosts inside my head
Haunting me with all the words you’ve said
I never knew a kiss could taste so black
But when I tasted yours I knew I’d never want you back

(verse 2)

These days are dark walking through the park in my head
Where all the green has turned to red
The sound of your voice gives me no choice but to leave
Our history under my sleeve

(chorus)

And it feels like there’s ghosts inside my head
Haunting me with all the words you’ve said
I never knew a kiss could taste so black
But when I tasted yours I knew I’d never want you back

(bridge)

How could you be so cold?
It’s a side of you that I have never known
You hate me you must
You hate me you must

Because how could you do this to someone who loved you?

Story

Ghosts of You” is a pretty self-explanatory song. It basically describes the pain, loss and rejection of getting cheated on in a relationship that was already shaky to begin with. This also ties into an immense fear of loneliness and so when mixed together, makes for some pretty heavy emotions. This track was the product of one of my rare forms of writing in which I am engulfed and overtaken by a particular emotion and am able to literally devise a chord progression, melody line and lyrics all in a single sitting. This one took about an hour to write but everything just fell into place nicely and so because of that, I’ve been pretty happy with this track. It’s sound and style isn’t typical of the rest of my music but I figured it was a nice chance to stay diversified and to throw some variety into the mix.
