"Ghost Ship" as written by and David Rowntree Steven Alexander James....
I remember flashbacks lighting up magic waves
Eight o'clock, saloon emptiness, handle it
The wide old image I had to view 11 seconds ago
I didn't say anything, so you will never know

I got away for a little while
But then it came back much harder

Swinging on the cable line to pull it
Climbing down the ghostly wine in a battery
That light in your eyes, I search for religiously
Oh, when it's not there, oh Lord, it's over me

I got away for a little while
But then it came back much harder

Till I ever hold you out there again
Will you be mine?
'Cause I'm on a ghost ship driving my heart
Home, come
It's the last ride boarding here tonight
Out in the bay, I need aligned a new shiner
Rat race

Living outta body here, what can I do?
It's up to the doc everyday to join here with you

I had to get away for a little while
But then it came back much harder

Till I ever hold you out there again
Will you be mine?
'Cause I'm on a ghost ship driving my heart
Home, come
It's the last ride boarding here tonight
Out in the bay, I need aligned a new shiner
Rat race

Till I ever hold you out there again
Will you be mine?
'Cause I'm on a ghost ship driving my heart
Home, come
It's the last ride boarding here tonight
Out in the bay, I need aligned a new shiner
Rat race
Rat race
Rat race

    My Interpretation"I had to get away for a little while
    But then it came back much harder"

    He avoided something and when he eventually faced the problem it had grown and become even worse of a problem.

    "Will you be mine?" might be asking Graham to be his friend again.

    "'Cause I'm on a ghost ship driving my heart
    Home, come
    It's the last ride boarding here tonight
    ...
    Rat race"

    He's on his "ship" trying to get to Graham (heart home) and then asks him to return home with him. "Last ride" refers to it being a now-or-never thing. If they don't rekindle their relationship now it's too late. He's racing to get to Graham.
