Why did I think that I could change you?
I loved you more than my own life, it's true.
Well I didn't wanna say goodbye to you...
With that last hurt I got the strength to.

Two years and some change since we split ways...
This town and it's memories make me pay.
Our old friend's faces is where they stay...
And they come collecting everyday.

(Chorus)
Gotta break these ties that bind me down...
I'm growing sick and tired of feelin' so run down.
I gotta make myself a ghost in this town.


It's worse when I find myself all alone...
Don't miss your kiss, your touch they're long gone.
But sometimes these walls they mumble and they moan...
I guess they're just used to having someone.

(Chorus)
I gotta break these ties that bind me down
I'm growing sick and tired of feelin' so run down
I gotta make myself a ghost in this town

I can't let my own home be my own prison...
It's time that I break out...
Oh, it's time that I start over now...

(Chorus)
Gotta break these ties that bind me down...
I'm growing sick and tired of feelin' so run down...
I gotta make myself a ghost in this town...

Oh, I gotta break these ties that bind me down...
Oh, I'm growing sick and tired of feelin' so run down...
Yeah, I've gotta make myself a ghost...
I gotta make myself a ghost...
I gotta make myself a ghost in this town.

    ahh love this song.

    i thinks its about being tied down in your relationship and not being able to do anything so hes gotta break away and do something else. and she keeps hurting him so he decides to end it but he still really likes her but shes not letting him be him. thats what i reckon.
