Unseen to the eyes but it plays in your heart
It scorches from inside just as it haunts
It is unknown to young lovers intoxicated by spring
But when I feel it I see flames and know everything

It lives where love has died, this ghostfire
Where poison flowers bloom
It sears from beyond sighs
In the graveyard of promises
It burns right throught the night

It's cold in here, a lover lost burns in ghostfire (Ghostfire)

Lovers sprurned took their revenge, lying to themselves tonight
Once consumed they turn to ash in its cold blue light
Those who can't take the pain
They extinguish the spark of life
For love is a confident companion in the night

It lives where love has died, this ghostfire
Where poison flowers bloom
It sears from beyond sighs
In the graveyard of promises
It burns right throught the night

It's cold in here, a lover lost burns in ghostfire
Only a lover lost burns in ghostfire
Only a lover lost burns in ghostfire (Ghostfire, ghostfire)

    General Comment"Ghostfire" is obviously the pain that someone feels after their heart has been broken. This song is a bit EMOish for me, and I can't seem to stop hearing "Some kind of Hate" by the Misfits when I play this song.. They're pretty similar, in my opinion. Although I prefer the latter.

    General Commentyeah, i don't consider this emo by any means.
    a lot of the old-school tiger army fans seem to not be as happy with this new cd.
    peronally i think this newest album is the best over-all.
    i think nick has really established his sound, and is finally breaking away from the afi resemblance.

    General CommentNot emo by any means. What the hell are you thinking? Anyways, this seems to me to be about naieve and oblivious young lovers. Those who know nothing about love and such, then get their hearts broken after breaking up or discovering the hardships of love.

    Like a fire that arrives after they have failed in their relationship or something. I can't really express what I think about this song in words right now, but this is about as close as I can get.

    General Comment"It's cold in here, a lover lost burns in ghostfire"
    should be: "Only a lover lost burns in ghostfire"

    I agree with Demonomania, it's kinda about young lovers ("It is unknown to young lovers intoxicated by spring") who break up and are haunted by the fire in their hearts.
    Great song anyway. Has a strange, haunting feel to it.

    General CommentIt's not: "For love is a confident companion in the night"
    It's "For others it comforts, a companion in the night" =)
