"The Ghosts That Haunt Me" as written by and Brad Roberts....
There's a skeleton in everybody's closet
I can think of one or two in my own room
But I would like to introduce them both to you
You'd shake their bony hands and so dispel the gloom

[Chorus]
Cause you're so kind
I know you would not mind
You'd send away the ghosts that haunt me now
And the things I fear
Just wouldn't seem so near
And when I stroll out late at night
There would be nothing rattling at my hells

There are nights when all my aching bones won't let me sleep
And demons come to plague me as I lie in bed
But I know if you were sleeping there beside me then
That you could fend them off and they would let me rest

There are nights
When the wind comes howling through my old place
I have dreams
And I wake up with the sweat pouring down my face
And I wait till the morning comes

There will come a time I fear when all my days are done
And they will come collect my corpse and bury me
And then I hope you'll come over to the Other Side
To join me in our new life, keep me company

    My InterpretationWow, again a great song that no one has commented on!

    Everyone has secrets/skeletons in their closets. He wants to tell his, because he knows the other person wouldn't care and is kind. He wants to tell the other person to be honest. Once a secret is outed, they usually don't matter. The other person calms him, as he has anxiety and thoughts that won't stop. The other person would "fend off these demons", sending away the "ghosts that haunt him".

    He's awakened with anxiety, which probably signifies a diagnosis of Panic Disorder.

    He wants this person to keep him company, even in death, as they calm him like nothing else can.
