"Ghost of You" as written by Benji Madden, Joel Madden and William George Martin Iii....
I will wait until the end
When the pendulum will swing back
To the darker side of our hearts bleeding
I will save this empty space
Next to me like its a grave
Where I lay a place for us to sleep eternally together

I have been
Searching for
Traces of
What we were
A ghost of you
Is all that I have left
Is all that I have left of you to hold
I wake in the night to find there's no one there but me
And nothing left of what we were at all

So here I am pacing around this house again
With pictures of us living on these walls
I see my breath in the cold of the air that I breathe and I'm
Wondering I'm wondering if its you
That I feel if its you that I feel
Haunting me forever

I have been
Searching for
Traces of
What we were
A ghost of you
Is all that I have left
Is all that I have left of you to hold
I wake in the night to find there's no one there but me
And nothing left of what we were at all

And I'm not looking for
Anything but us
Anything but what we were
And I'm not asking for
Painted memories
I only want to know you're here

A ghost of you
Is all that I have left
Is all that I have left of you to hold
I wake in the night to find there's no one there but me
And nothing left of what we were at all

A ghost of you
Is all that I have left
Is all that I have left of you to hold
I wake in the night to find there's no one there but me
And nothing left of what we were at all.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone close him passing away / leaving him.
    He feels lost without him/her, he feels he cannot live without him/her and he dwells upon all the times they spent together.
    Just my opinion ^^.

    General Commenti like the lyrics to this song.
    i guess it is about maybe breaking up with someone and that the ex doesn't want to even think they were once an item.

    and yeahhh benji's vocals in the pre-chorus is awesome!
