"A Ghost" as written by and Landon Pigg....
You cannot hug a shadow's neck
You cannot kiss a silhouette
But I've done both time and time again
You reel me in like rain on a tin roof
When I open the door to let you in you
Are not there, the sky is clear, there's not a cloud in sight

Am I believing in a ghost?
Am I wishing on a star?
Am I loving you the most
Because I can't be where you are?
Am I wishing you were here?
'Cause I know you cannot be
Am I goin' crazy dear?

Your secret eyes, they touch my skin
I wish that I could pretend
But as you know, that really ain't my field
I sit around looking much too serious
At our standstill lame duck period
But on the day, we'll fly away

Am I believing in a ghost?
Am I wishing on a star?
Am I loving you the most
Because I can't be where you are?
Am I wishing you were here?
Because I know you cannot be
Am I goin' crazy dear?
To let you get the best of me

Am I believing in a ghost?
Am I wishing on a star?
Am I loving you the most
Because I can't be where you are?
Am I wishing you were here?
'Cause I know you cannot be
Am I goin' crazy dear?
Am I goin' crazy dear?
Oh, am I goin' crazy dear?
To let you get the best of me

    General Commenti think this song is about the guy who misses his dead girlfriend so badly and imagining to see her...

    poor him,this makes me so sad!!!

    General CommentI take it a different way but I can absolutely see the other commenters way as well. To me it sounds like this guy is in this unofficial, uncommitted unmoving relationship and he wants it to be something more substantial... but sometimes wonders if he wants it so bad because he can't have it. Thats just my take.
