"Haunted (with Sinead O'Connor)" as written by and Shane Patrick Lysaght Macgowan....
Do you remember that sunny day
Somewhere in London
In the middle of nowhere
Didn't have nothing to do that day
Didn't wanna do nothing anyway

You got a way of walking
You got a way of talking
And there's something about you
And now I know I never ever
Wanna be without you

I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
Of your precious love
Of your precious love

The first time I saw you
Standing in the street
You were so cool you could've
Put out Vietnam
All the girls asks "what's he like?"
I says, he's kind of shy
But that's the kind of girl I am,
He's my kind of guy

I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
Of your precious love
Of your precious love
Of your precious love

I'll build my world around you
I'll bless the day that I found you
I'll stay beside you, I'll never leave
Or tell you all those lies that you'd never believe
Uh huh huh

I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
Of your precious love
Of your precious love

You got a way of walking
You got a way of talking
And there's something about you
That's the kind of girl I am,
He's my kind of guy
And now I know I never ever
Wanna be without you

I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
I wanna be haunted by the ghost
And now I know I never ever
Wanna be without you

(Haunted by the ghost)

    General CommentThis song was written for the Alex Cox film, Sid & Nancy. The first version I heard was MacGowan's duet with Sinaed O'Connor on Youtube, and I followed a link to hear the original, which I also recomend.
    It's actually a song very true of that Romeo and Juliet of punk. The chorus is a little tragic, because Sid and Nacy did die. I've always thought of it as being taken from the poem Sid Vicious wrote after Nancy's death, particularly "To my little baby girl/our love will never die." Sid was haunted by Nancy - he obviously never forgot her. They are both haunted with rumours that continue to this day.
    They built their worlds around each other, and they were inseparable. Also, the female counterpart of the song, or Nancy, sings "He's kind of shy/But that's the kind of girl I am/He's my kind of guy," and that's apparently what Nancy was like. She liked to mother Sid, and had an overbearing personality.
    "There's something about you" really epitomises their story. They were obviously killing each other from day one, but for some reason, they needed one another more than anything. Very sad.
