"Ghost Pressure" as written by and Dan Boeckner Spencer Kyle Krug....
Baby I just don't understand
Make me feel like another man
And I kissed you there on orchard road
Pulled the car from the empty street

Empty room and empty sea
I know they're dancing there invisibly
Little vision come shake me up, shake me up
Said your heart was a swarm of bees

And they don't and they will never leave
I hear them buzzing there invisibly
And now it's just you and me
Well I could do a little mystery

And you just had to know
Little vision come shake me up, shake me up
A little vision come, come and shake me up
Ghost Pressure come shake me up, shake me up

    General CommentI love the song too but let's talk about the meaning.

    The way I take it is he is alone and see's visions of what could be with this girl. She on the other hand is confused ("swarm of bees" being all her thoughts) about her feelings or just isn't ready to jump into a relationship. "You just had to know" is her being uncertain but he isn't bothered by it ("I could use a little mystery").

    I don't know, I feel like I'm missing something but that's my take. And I have no idea what "ghost pressure" means though haha.

    Song Meaning

    yeah i agree and there does seem to be something missing, but that 'ghost pressure' can be taken as the idea never leaving him.

    the 'little visions' can be seen as the possible future i.e. children 'I know they're dancing there invisibly', so 'ghost pressure' can also mean that the thoughts or possibility are dead meaning that him and this girl are no longer together.

    that's also supported with the 'swarm of bees' and how 'they never will leave' because regardless of the fact that 'i could use a little mystery' she 'just had to know'.

    so in total, he loved her, could imagine a future and kids with her, she was unsure, he didn't care, they broke up because she wanted to be sure, and he could still imagine all of their once possible future but now it's just a ghost.

    thus 'Ghost Pressure.'

    that's just how i took it to mean.
