"Haunted" as written by Evan A. Rogers and Carl Allen Sturken....
The steps on the stairs
Aren't really there
Feel like there's someone watching me
Shadows on the wall
Whispers down the hall
When I look there's nothing to see
You say that you let her go
Turn the page and closed the door
Can't get inside your head
'Cause when I try, she's there instead

I can't compete with a memory
How can I fight with someone that I can't see?
There's two of us but it feels like three
I wish her ghost would just let us be
Boy you're everything I ever wanted
But I got to let you go 'cause this love is
Haunted
Haunted

You say that she's gone
That you've moved on
So why do I feel her eyes on me
Invisible chains keep us in pain
Won't you please tell her set you free?
Sometimes when you look past me
Your eyes see someone I can't see
So I've given up this war
'Cause I can't fight it anymore

I can't compete with a memory
How can I fight with someone that I can't see?
There's two of us but it feels like three
I wish her ghost would just let us be
Boy you're everything I ever wanted
But I got to let you go 'cause this love is
Haunted
Haunted

Wish I could cast a spell to make her spirit leave
The walls are closing in it's so damn hard to breath
There is nothing I could do about it

I can't compete with a memory
How can I fight with someone that I can't see?
There's two of us but it feels like three
I wish her ghost would just let us be
Boy you're everything I ever wanted
But I got to let you go 'cause this love is
Haunted
Haunted

Haunted
Haunted

I don't want to fight anymore
Someone's walking out that door

Haunted
Haunted

    General CommentShe feels her lover might not have let his ex go; that he still thinks about her.

    My InterpretationI personally feel like this song is about a couple where the man's old lover has died.

    "I can't compete with a memory
    How can I fight with someone that I can't see?
    There's two of us but it feels like three
    I wish her ghost would just let us be
    Boy you're everything I ever wanted
    But I got to let you go 'cause this love is
    Haunted"

    Really makes me feel like the 'other woman' that Rihanna is referring to is dead, which may be why the man has such trouble letting go of her.
