"Ghost" as written by Jon Brion and Sky Ferreira....
I'm not irrational
I'm just no longer in the day dream
Of the delusion that
Once was hard between our love it seems
Lately I've been between
Being steady or a head case
What's become of us now
Hanging our hearts in disgrace

What did I do to make you so cruel
I've got this ache inside my heart
I know that it's you
What should I do now that
I know that we're doomed
I loved you most
And now you're a ghost
I walk right through

Oh remember when you said
That I was sick inside the head
I'm just half way there
My common sense hanging by a thread
I'm bad on the outside
But a coward at heart
The taste of salt in my mouth
My voice is silent
But my thoughts are right

What did I do to make you so cruel
I've got this ache inside my heart
I know that it's you
What should I do now that
I know that we're doomed
I loved you most
And now you're a ghost
I walk right through

What did I do to make you so cruel
I've got this ache inside my heart
I know that it's you
What should I do now that
I know that we're doomed
I loved you most
And now you're a ghost
I walk right through

    General CommentFirstly, I adore this song. It's highly emotive; you can hear it in her voice.

    Anyway, I think the meaning is very simple: she loves this boy, however things have gone sour in the relationship. She knows he's the cause of the sadness and she knows that this relationship is doomed for failure, yet she doesn't know what to do because she still loves him and doesn't want to let him go. Her head is telling her one thing, her heart is telling her another.

    I love this song and I think it expresses a common sentiment in a relationship. You come so far and you can see all the warning signs, but you disregard them. Then, when you finally realize that it can't go anywhere, you've invested so much love that you don't know what to do.
