I never meant to leave you dear
I just thought I would arrive
But it seems here
I'm never quite alive
Where you are
The room won't fill with light
But an absence that makes its way into mine

I'll share your ghost tonight
I'll share your ghost tonight

I never fall asleep till
Dark divorces the sky
When I lie still
My thoughts crawl back to your side


I'll share your ghost tonight
I'll share your ghost tonight
(repeats)

    General CommentI think it's about him wanting to help this person dealing with something. It's something haunting this person, and he's going to "share their ghost."

    My InterpretationTo me, the idea of this song is about wanting to be with a person as a significant other though not feeling the love that they wish for once in their (the other person's) presence. They long for this being due to loneliness and the wanting to feel love.

    "I never meant to leave you dear
    I just thought I would arrive"
    -- He didn't want to leave this relationship cause he thought she'd grow on him, that love would come eventually

    "But it seems here
    I'm never quite alive
    Where you are
    The room won't fill with light"
    -- With her he doesn't feel that happiness, that warmth that is felt when love is present

    "But an absence that makes its way into mine"
    -- But away from her 'love' does come due to loneliness

    "I'll share your ghost tonight
    I'll share your ghost tonight"
    -- He feels love in her ghostly presence, the presence the longs for that isn't truly there.
