"Haunt" as written by and Daniel Smith....
We'll make our agreements,
About when to meet,
And I'll leave you in the doorway,
The cold evening aches,
As it leaves in its wake,
All the memories left by the day,
And I'm questioning why,
As you look to the sky,
That it's cloudless up above our heads,
And thoughts come to mind,
that our short little lives,
Haven't left the path that they will tread,
They will tread

I come back to haunt you,
Memories will taunt you,
And I will try to love you,
It's not like I'm above you,

The wisdom we learn as our minds,
They do burn'll,
Entice the naivety in youth,
As adults will grow and maturity shows,
The terrifying rarity of truth,
As you turn to your mind,
And your thoughts they rewind,
To old happenings and things that are done,
You can't find what's passed,
Make that happiness last,
Seeing from those eyes what you become,
Well you become

I come back to haunt you,
Memories will taunt you,
And I will try to love you,
It's not like I'm above you,

I will see you there,
See you there,
See you there,
I'll come back to haunt,
Memories will taunt you,
And I will try to love you,
It's not like I'm above you

    My OpinionOkay I just had to say something about this song! Because nobody seems to know what it’s about and I really wanted to know and so that was killing me! I came to this website hoping to find some answers but no! But it just kept eating away at me! So I just kept listening and thinking and analyzing and I think I finally got it! So let me break this whole song down, step by step, and show you what exactly I think is going on...

    Overview of entire song:
    This song is about a person struggling to let go and accept the mistakes they made and the person they use to be so that they can move on and their life can get better. I can relate to this a lot and that's probably why I interpreted it this way... But the more I listen to it, the more I honestly think it's a person communing with their past self.

    Breaking down of entire song:

    [Current Self:]
    (We'll make our agreements,
    About when to meet,
    And I'll leave you in the doorway,
    The cold evening aches,
    As it leaves in its wake,
    All the memories left by the day,)

    The person wants to confront their past but is afraid because they know it will bring them pain and open old wounds. But they still persist in confronting their past because they know that living with that pain for the rest of their life will be even harder...

    [Past Self:]
    (And I'm questioning why,
    As you look to the sky,
    That it's cloudless up above our heads,)

    The past can't believe how's things have gotten so much better in the person's life.

    [Current Self:]
    (And thoughts come to mind,
    that our short little lives,
    Haven't left the path that they will tread,
    They will tread)

    The person is afraid because even though things have gotten better, there's always the chance of things falling apart again and becoming terrible just like they once were in the past...

    [Past Self:]
    (I come back to haunt you,
    Memories will taunt you,)

    I am your past, your mistakes, and I will always be here to remind you of what you've done because you can't run from yourself. The memories of me will consume you and drag you down if you continue to dwell on me...

    [Current Self:]
    (And I will try to love you,
    It's not like I'm above you,)

    But in order to love myself I must learn to accept the wrong I've done. Because you and I are the same. I'm not above you. So I must also learn to love you. So it's time I stopped dwelling and running...

    [Current Self:]
    (The wisdom we learn as our minds,
    They do burn'll,
    Entice the naivety in youth,
    As adults will grow and maturity shows,
    The terrifying rarity of truth,)

    The person has come a long way from where they once were and their life has increasingly gotten better. Because they’ve matured they realize the mistakes that they’ve made which cause them to realize the truth, how terrible of a person they really were.

    [Past Self:]
    (And your thoughts they rewind,
    To old happenings and things that are done,
    You can't find what's passed,
    Make that happiness last,
    Seeing from those eyes what you become,
    Well you become)

    Now the past is reminding them and holding them back. Causing them to never truly be happy. Making them think that they’ve become a person who doesn’t even deserve an ounce of happiness.

    [Past Self & Current Self:]
    (I will see you there,
    See you there,
    See you there,)

    Whether you choose to move on or revert back to your old ways the past will always be there. And the person is completely aware of that...
