I had a fight with a ghost
The ghost of the one that I loved most
The ghost that kept on haunting
The one I keep on wanting
I had a fight with a ghost
The ghost of the one that I loved most
The ghost that kept on haunting
The one I keep on wanting

I hear you
So open up, open up, I'm comin' in

Anytime I want you, I can see you again
Yea, I can see you again
My dear departed friend
Anytime I miss you, I can see you again
I can see you

My dear ghost, you're the one that I love most
The ghost that keeps on haunting
The one I keep on wanting

So open up, open up, I'm comin' in

    General CommentThis is actually one song from Mr. Matranga that I am actually stumped on. Well...not so much stumped...but I have multiple theories about the meaning of it. My best theory is as follows:

    I have the idea that "The Ghost That Keeps On Haunting" is in reference to his dark side or his depression or suicidal back-up plans (although...I wouldn't necessarily go as far as the latter...just an idea to entertain). The lyrics "Anytime I miss you, I can see you again..." are vaguely reminiscent of some of the the lyrics in the song "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle" by Nirvana that read "I miss the comfort in being sad". Now, I feel it is important at this point to mention that I am in no way comparing Far to Nirvana because that would be a critique tragedy. This song just reminded me of those words in the sense that sometimes depression can be comforting because it is familiar. Even though it is sadness and lonliness and everything that isn't happy...it is sometimes comforting because of the fact that you are alone with your thoughts with no one to judge and no one to argue with.

    Even though there are moments of periodic happiness, it always comes back to the dark times and has become predictable and familiar. Sometimes you just want to be there in that place.
