"Ghost on the Highway" as written by and Jason Mitchell....
It's cloudy in the west, it looks like rain
My eyes are black holes and I'm burning away

You slaughtered your loving man, killed him in his sleep
The blood and crying of your murder simply stains the sheets

Now, you're a ghost on the highway
Your gesture is meaningless
You're lost to the living men
Trailing souls to the end

You thought winning as a woman, meant failing as a friend
It is not an art statement to drown a few passionate men

You made yourself a diamond to blind young men's eyes
You claim because they want your shine they deserve to walk the line

You're a ghost on the highway
Your gesture is meaningless
You're lost forever to the living men
Trailing souls till the end

Yes, I would give you my love so my soul would not starve
But it could never move the honest rock of what you are

You're a ghost on the highway
You're like straw and meaningless
I hate you, but I love you
I'll carry that to the end

If I ever lie with you again, I pray I do not sleep
If I ever close my eyes again, I'd realize what you are to me
You are simply a liar
An animal who bluffs and steals
Until you become a bigger creature's meal

You're a ghost on the highway
You're trash and meaningless
I hate you, but I love you
I'll carry that to the end

You're lost on the highway

    General Commenti agree. definitely about the literal love/hate with a woman. he knows she is no good in fact he has seen first hand what she has done to previous lovers and he cannot help but be added to the list.

    General CommentAbout a Femme Fatale? But I think all the talk of her killing people is symbolic. It's more about how she slaughters the souls of her lovers when she leaves them.

    And although Jeffrey Lee knows that she is this Femme Fatale character, he has to constantly remind himself about it. The heart probably tells him the opposite. ("I hate you but i love you", "If I ever close my eyes again, I'd realize what you are to me")

    And in the end, he also feels sorry for her, she is "lost on the highway".
