The glint in your eyes
The warmth and the light
Is everything you love
Burning right before you

The warmth, the light
Is everything you love
Burning right before you

With your two black eyes
It's hard to see

You're just a ghost
You'll never haunt me
Always better than someone in the, someone in the room
And when you fade away (when you fade away)
you'll look back when there's nothing to look forward to

Never let your clothes speak louder than your voice now baby
If it's not who you know then it's what you are
Maybe if you'd realize
Just open your eyes

You're no longer in my ear
Feeding me lies
I've got all the friends I need
They won't hear what you have to say
You're no longer in my ear
Feeding me lies
I've got all the friends I need
They won't hear what you have to say

With your crippled voice
It's hard to speak
With your two black eyes
It's hard to see

You're just a ghost
you'll never haunt me
Always better than someone in the, someone in the room
And when you fade away (when you fade away)
You'll look back when there's nothing to look forward to
You're just a ghost
you'll never haunt me
Always better than someone in the, someone in the room
And when you fade away (when you fade away)
You'll look back when there's nothing to look forward to

You're just a ghost
You'll never haunt me
Always better than someone in the, someone in the room
And when you fade away (when you fade away)
you'll look back when there's nothing to look forward to
You're just a ghost
you'll never haunt me
Always better than someone in the, someone in the room
And when you fade away (when you fade away)
You'll look back when there's nothing to look forward to

You'll look back when there's nothing to look forward to
You'll look back when there's nothing to look forward
You'll look back when there's nothing to look forward to
You'll look back when there's nothing to look forward

You're no longer in my ear
Feeding me lies
I've got all the friends I need
They won't hear what you have to say

    My InterpretationTo me, I think this song is talking about a person from your past who you've cut ties with comes back and tries to convince you that your life and friends are not perfect and that you'd be better off with them. However, you refused to be fooled, citing them as nothing more than a 'ghost' who keeps to the past because they cannot look forward.
