Died last night in my dreams
Walking the streets
Of some old ghost town
I tried to believe
In God and James Dean
But Hollywood sold out

Saw all of the saints
Lock up the gates
I could not enter
Walked into the flames
Called out your name
But there was no answer

And now I know my heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

Died last night in my dreams
All the machines
Had been disconnected
Time was thrown at the wind
And all of my friends
Had been disaffected

Now, I'm searching for trust
In a city of rust
A city of vampires
Tonight, Elvis is dead
And everyone's spread
And love is a satire

And now I know my heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

There's no one left in the world
I'm gunslingin'
Don't give a fuck if I go
Down, down, down
I got a voice in my head that keeps singing
Oh, my heart is a ghost town

My heart is a ghost town
Oh, my heart is a ghost town
(Said, my heart)
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

    General CommentMy interpretation's been this: Adam Lambert states "My heart is a ghost town" because he's basically saying that his ability to love is still in place (as in a ghost town the buildings and other infrastructure elements are still in place), but there are only memories inhabiting his love (no current residents, just like in a ghost town). So, in a nutshell, he's still able to love, but currently he's not in love.

    However, in a interview for AT40 dot com on April 22, 2015, he stated: "Chasing the original high. That’s the hook. I feel like we all do that on some way, whatever the original high is to you… The first time, for me, [when] I got onstage and that adrenaline rush, that kind of high”.
