"Ghost Story" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
Maybe I'm just a ghost
Disappear when anybody's close
Go through you when you travel
Travel over near

Maybe I'm just a ghost
Emptied by 'em, anybody knows
Maybe I'm on a rose
Or am I even here?

Yeah!

Every time I try to walk through walls
More walls appear
What's the point of feeling love for you
When you don't believe I'm here?
What's the point of trying to raise your voice
If no one ever hears?
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

Maybe I'm a ghost
Just a whisper in a path of smoke
A secret that nobody knows
No one will ever hear

Oh, maybe I'm a ghost
Specter on a roller coast
Fallen out of rose
Something people fear

Yeah!

And every time I thought I walk through walls
It's all become clear
What's the point of feeling love for you
When you don't believe I'm here?
What's the point saying "Rescue me!"
If no one ever hears?
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

And every time I thought I walk through walls
It's all become clear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

    My Interpretationthis song to me is most definitely about unrequited love.
    The singer is singing to someone who he really loves, but she does not feel the same way. It could almost be thought that she doesn't even know he exists.

    General CommentMaybe I'm just a ghost
    Disappear when anybody's close
    Go through you when you try to hold
    Try to hold me near

    Maybe I'm just a ghost
    Emptier than anybody knows
    Maybe I'm on the ropes
    Or I'm not even here

    Yeah!

    Every time I try to walk through walls
    More walls appear
    What's the point of feeling love for you
    When you don't believe I'm here?
    What's the point of trying to raise your voice
    If no one ever hears?
    Every time I try to pull you close
    You disappear

    Maybe I'm a ghost
    Just a whisper in a puff of smoke
    A secret that nobody knows
    No one will ever hear

    Oh, maybe I'm a ghost
    Specter on a roller coast(er)
    Thorn without a rose
    Something people fear

    Yeah!

    And every time I thought I'd walked through walls
    It's all becoming clear
    What's the point of feeling love for you
    When you don't believe I'm here?
    What's the point saying "Rescue me!"
    If no one ever hears?
    Every time I try to pull you close
    You disappear
    Every time I try to pull you close
    You disappear

    And every time I thought I'd walked through walls
    It's all becoming clear
    Every time I try to pull you close
    You disappear

    Every time I try to pull you close
    You disappear
