"Girl and the Ghost" as written by and Kt Tunstall....
The girl and the ghost
Sit in the corner
The girl and the ghost
Seem to have a lot to say

The girl and the ghost
Haven't seen each other in three years
The girl and the ghost
A few simple seconds slipped away
Slipped away

The ghost and the girl
Commonly connected by something bigger
A phenomenon that sets off the eternal trigger
And lets the light through that usually goes around
And around and around

The girl and the ghost
Meet in the corridor
The girl and the ghost
They touch fingers and walk right through

The girl and the ghost
Feel so familiar and fearless
The girl and the ghost
Know each other like other people do
Other people do, other people do

The ghost and the girl
Commonly connected by something bigger
A phenomenon that sets off the eternal trigger
And lets the light through that usually

Ghost and the girl
Commonly connected by, well, something bigger
A phenomenon that sets off the eternal trigger
And lets the light through that usually goes around
And around and around
Usually goes around and around and around

Usually goes around
Goes around, it goes around, it goes around
It usually goes around
It goes around, it goes around, it goes around
It usually goes around

It goes around, it goes around, it goes around
It usually goes around
It goes around, it goes around, it goes around
It usually goes around

It goes around, it goes around, it goes around
It usually goes around

    General Commentthis is my personal interpretation, not sure how accurate it is...

    i think the song is about the body and soul of a girl (probably herself).

    "haven't seen each other in three years" - we loose sight of who we are (soul)

    "commonly connected by something bigger, set off of the eternal trigger" - metaphysical philosophy

    "meet in the corridor, touch fingers and walk right though, feels so famililar and fearless" - finally find who we are and what we're looking for

    "the light that usually goes around" - our body's way of being the representation of our soul's energy

    General CommentPersonally, I think the ghost is the girl's old lover (one that's about to pass away). They can't stay together for long but they try to embrace the time they have together.

    General CommentI've always liked this song and for years thought the ghost was a lover from an adulterous affair.
    Today while listening to it again It occured to me that the ghost is addiction. How we can overcome our addictions, but if the setting is just right it is easy to slip back into them, whatever the addiction is.

    General CommentFor me this song has to do with the girl`s personal relationship to god, to herself and to her ancestors.
    The girl is a very sensitive Person, she feels things, that other people are probably not able to feel.

    It has a lot to do with energy, and for me the song is very spiritual.

    If I was the girl this song would be about me and my grandfather, who died when I was very little, but to whom I always felt and still feel a very strong connection.

    Peace
