She says she’s gonna come over tonight
Look like a ghost sound like a whisper shivering down my spine
I’m just a traveling soul, say you’d never leave me low
Tell me you need me so tonight

She come creeping up slow
I got no place, no place to go
But now I’m feeling like I fell for you
Oh baby, no don’t you sell it
Story’s always different no matter who’s telling it
Now I’m feeling like I fell for you


I know she lurkin the streets tonight
Sounds like silence, slink like a drifter
‘tween the darkness and flickering light
She’s just a wandering soul, oh I just can’t let it go,
Tell me it isn’t so tonight

I swear I heard something sneaking through my corridor,
Memories float like specters, keep on haunting me evermore

    General CommentThis song is about a girl that he can never have. He's never in one spot except for the short time it takes them to lay down together: "I'm just a traveling soul."

    Then he wants her, and she's moved on: "She's just a wandering soul/Oh, I just can't let it go/Tell me it isn't so/Tonite" and "Memories float like specters"

    This song sounds like candles flickering in hot breezes, heavy with scent, and the shadows they cast on darkened walls.

    General CommentSounds good, or a one night stand or strictly physical relationship with someone.

    General CommentI disagree, I think it's a soul that he can feel sometimes but whoever it is never addresses him directly, almost teasing him, dangling the greatest love he could ever have right in front of his eyes. That's why she's sneaking through his corridor, floating, lurking, wandering... he loves her, but she's not talking "face to face" and giving herself to him... it's just out of reach. It just hasn't surfaced in the physical world... yet.

    It goes with the meaning of the word apparition too.

    General CommentThis girl is playing him and coming over when she wants to and leaves just as silently, like a ghost or apparition. The memories of them together fill the room and haunts him.
