"There Is A Ghost" as written by and Nicholas Edward/faithfull Cave....
There is a ghost
And it goes out
On the land
On the land

It's lifted up
It feels and flows
On many hands
On many hands

Oh, my lover
Oh, my lover
Never was there another
Where has my loverman gone

There is a dream
You've had before
And forgot many times
So many times

When you remember who I am
Just call
When you remember who I am
Just call

When you remember who I am
Just call
When you remember who I am

There is a tree
But its leaves have gone
For what it seem
It stands alone

Oh, my lover
Oh, my lover
Gonna, gonna find another
Where has my loverman gone

Away, away
Across the land
Across the land
Across the land

    General CommentI thing this story is for a relationship that has ended.
    The ghost is the girl/woman who is left by her boyfriend.
    She is so sad for so much time and her life has deteriorated that she seems as a ghost, as a tree without leaves.
    She searched for love on other persons, but she didn' t managed to get really closed to somebody. She wishes that her ex boyfriend reminds of her, of the dreams they had together and call her again, but she realises that this will not happen as he is far away, in an another relationship/marriage.
