Mayday Parade – Ghosts lyrics

There's a ghost in my bedroom, it haunts me at night,
I've asked him to leave but he keeps stopping by.
Just when I think that I'm alone, it shows up again with a friend this time,
And now this is getting old.
Don't know what to do (don't know what to do),
Metaphorically, this ghost is you.

[Verse 1]
Now this ghost in my bedroom it gives me advice,
He promised one day that he'd teach me to fly.
Now that I think that I'm alone,
He comes up my way with a Devil's smile,
Singing, "This is now my home,
You're my wish come true.
When you reach that golden cloud, I'll be there with you."

If there were monsters in the closet,
Well, I don't think I would be surprised.
I hear him call out from my window,
They try and trick me to come outside (I won't let you down).
We talked all day,
I can't tell if he's real or a made up version of her again.
Never alone 'cause I've got you,
Get this out of my head.

No, I won't waste away my life on to something new,
If there's only one way out, I'll come back for you.

[Verse 2]
If I get stuck out there forever,
Tell everyone that I said goodbye.
And that my life-long list of wish is that I could bring you back,
But we don't belong here, now.
If he stays, well that just means I've got numbered days,
'Til I go back to my little world,
Where it's just me and my imaginary friends.

So go out, love, find a new direction,
And hold my heart keep it for protection.
Don't get stuck on your way,
The other side's a scary place.
Do your best not to be afraid,
Lose it all when we run away.
Letting go of the little things you know I do.

(There's a ghost in my bedroom, ah)
And he's dying to meet you.
God knows he's heard all about you,
I guess he's friendly enough, though.
(There's a ghost in my bedroom, ah)
I see him always sneaking roses in your bed,
Says he won't let you down,
He won't, he won't, he won't.

(There's a ghost in my bedroom, ah)
He won't, he won't, he won't.
(There's a ghost in my bedroom, ah)
(There's a ghost in my bedroom, ah)
(There's a ghost in my bedroom, ah)
(There's a ghost in my bedroom, Ah)
