"Ghosts Are Gone" as written by Stevie Nicks and Dave Stewart....
What happened to her?
I thought she was here
Through the eyes of love
I saw her through her tears
I saw her smile
I saw her move on
Like a ghost through the fog
The ghost is gone

What happened to them?
I thought it was here
Through the eyes of a child
After all these years
He wasn't true
He wasn't clear
Oh not even to his song
The ghosts are gone

Gone are the ghosts
Now forgotten, yeah
Gone is the lost world
It's easy to change
Gone are the lost girls
Gone are the lost girls
The girls went home

What happened to them
They opened their doors
They walked right through
They knew it was wrong
Wrong to be swept away
To think they belonged
There was only sadness
The boys are gone

Gone are the ghosts
Gone is the lost world, yeah
You're too crazy to change
But never forgotten

Gone are the lost girls
Gone are the lost girls
Gone
The girls went home

What happened to him?
I thought he was here
Through the eyes of love
I saw him through his tears
I saw him smile
I saw him move on
Like a ghost through the fog
A ghost through the fog
Close to the fog
The ghosts are gone

I saw him smile
I saw him move on
Like a ghost through the fog
And the ghost is gone
What happened to him?
I thought he was here
Through the eyes of a child
I saw him disappear

He wasn't clear
Not even to his song
The ghost is gone
The ghosts are gone

Ghost through the fog
Like a silver shadow
Gone wrong
Like a ghostly whisper
She's gone
Like a silvery rainbow
Like a ghost through the fog
Like a ghost through the fog
Like a golden rainbow
Like a golden rainbow
Like a song
Like a ghostly whisper
Gone wrong
Like a silvery rainbow
Goin' down
Goin' down

    Song MeaningWorking partly on an interview Stevie Nicks did with Jim Ladd, she described this song as being about "a relationship that was just done," like "I don't need a card at Christmas," or "if I see you walking on the street, I will absolutely cross the street to get as far away from you as I can."

    To me, the "ghosts" are either a specific person with whom you had a negative relationship (which would fit Nicks's stated meaning) or doubts in your mind being left behind, or leaving a specific place -- physical or emotional -- behind.
