I'm not calling you a liar,
Just don't lie to me.
I'm not calling you a thief,
Just don't steal from me.
I'm not calling you a ghost,
Just stop haunting me.
And I love you so much,
I'm gonna let you
Kill me.

There's a ghost in my lungs
And it sighs in my sleep,
Wraps itself around my tongue,
As it softly speaks.
And it walks, and it walks, with my legs,
To fall, to fall, to fall at your feet.

There but for the grace of God go I,
And when you kiss me, I'm happy enough to die.

I'm not calling you a liar,
Just don't lie to me.
And I love you so much,
I'm gonna let you
I'm not calling you a thief,
Just stop,
And I love you so much,
I'm gonna let you, Ohh,
I'm not calling you a ghost,
Just stop...

There's a ghost in my mouth
And it talks in my sleep,
Wraps itself around my tongue
As it softly speaks,
Then it walks, then it walks,
Then it walks with my legs,
To fall (x11)
To fall, at your feet.

There but for the grace of God go I,
And when you kiss me, I am happy enough...

    I think the meaning of this song is more like the fact that love seems to take people over. It can completely take you over. But, in this particular song, i think this is about a girl who can't get this person out of her head. She goes to sleep thinking about them. That's just my opinion though.
