"Ghost Of You And Me" as written by and Richard James Page Jon Lind....
What am I supposed to do with all these blues
Haunting me
Everywhere no matter what I do
Watching the candle flicker out in the evening glow
I can't let go
When will the night be over

[Chorus]
I didn't mean to fall
In love with you
And baby there's a name
For what you put me through
It isn't love
It's robbery
I'm sleeping with the ghost of you and me

Seen a lot of broken hearts go sailing by phantom ships
Lost as sea and one of them is mine
Raising my glass I sing a toast to the midnight sky
I wonder why the stars don't seem to guide me

[Chorus]

The ghost of you and me when will it set me free
I hear voices call following footsteps down the hall
Trying to save what's left of my heart and soul
Watching the candle flicker out in the evening glow
I can't let go when will the night be over

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who broke up with a girl and is still in love with her, but he knows they will never get back together.

    General CommentI agree with above. ^
    This isn't even my usual choice of music, but I just really liked the line, "I didn't mean to fall in love with you."
    Like this song, I can't let go either

    General CommentThis song gives me chills. Not only can I relate to it on some level.. but it also just sounds so.. wistful, regretful.. wow. My favorite part would have to be 'Seen a lot of broken hearts go sailing by/Phantom ships, lost at sea/And one of them is mine/Raising my glass I sing a toast to the midnight sky/I wonder why the stars don't seem to guide me'.

    *shivers*

    To me this song means, the guy is saying that he feels cheated. He risked a lot falling in love when that was never his intention, and she let him down.. and now he's left with a broken spirit, wondering why. He's haunted by what his heart felt because of her, she let him go, so he doesn't know where to go from here.

    Yeah...

    General CommentI feel just like this song. I broke up with a guy about 2 years ago and after a few months I knew I made a huge mistake, so we were going to get back together, but something happened between him and his parents and he moved out, I haven't heard from him since. His name is Austin, I wish there was a way I could tell him that I love him and I want to spend the rest of my life with him. I have tried to get over him, but I just can't, he was and still is my everything.
