My body sinks to the bottom
You were the last one to know
Never needed a home but had nowhere else to go
Now I'm drifting to pieces
Time is slipping away
Always thought you would end up finding a reason to stay
In this house I built for you
All our plans would follow suit
You'd forget who you had been and finally give in

Is it too late to go back down that road?
Or take the backroads, we're not the same no
Tell me I'm not dreaming again
Our love is not a ghost, our love is not a ghost
Ooooh
Could build a brand new home
Ooooh
Our love is not a Ghost

You gave me reason to follow a plan to build myself up
Did it all just to show you, had nowhere else to go
Now the winter is coming and time is slipping away
You're getting hard to convince that you have a reason to stay

In this house I built for you
All our plans have fallen through
Should I forget who we have been and finally give in

Is it too late to go back down that road?
Or take the backroads, we're not the same no
Tell me I'm not dreaming again
Our love is not a ghost, our love is not a ghost
Oooooh, ooh
Could build a brand new home
Oooh, oooohhhhh
Our love is not a ghost

I made a fool of myself
How I've been backwards
Still you're the only one I ever want to call my own
We can drive out of this hell
we'll take the backroads
Our love is not a ghost, our love is not a ghost

Is it too late to go back down that road?
Or take the backroads, we're not the same no
Tell me I'm not dreaming again
Our love is not a ghost, our love is not a ghost
Could build a brand new home

    My InterpretationI feel like what he's trying to day is that he used to be in a relationship. They're not together anymore and they distanced a bit, things were said and heartbreak came along. They're kind of acting like what they had was non-existant, but their love isn't non-existant. Time is passing by quite quickly and he really misses her. He thought that she'd stay with him, with all the care he had for her. He's wondering if it's too late to get back together and start over again. She was the reason he had hung on when times were tough in his life. He showed that he was worth staying with, and that he needed her. He tries to move on but he can't. He still wants her back, and believes the problems can be fixed.
