I've seen how you tremble
Whenever he walks through your mind
Stirring up memories that cloud up your eyes
Where the light of our love ought to shine

I know that he hurt you and hurt you so bad
He must have been going insane
Now I finally learned how to hold you together
When somebody mentions his name

He's just a ghost story so don't let him scare you
He's not really there like he seems
And tonight when I hold you I'll hold you so close
I'll love him right out of your dreams

I'm sure that he's called you
And told you that our love can't last
But don't you believe him 'cause honey he's wrong
He's never been right in the past

So don't let him haunt you and tell you those lies
He just can't admit that you're free
The next time he calls you just hand me the phone
And see if he'll say that to me

He's just a ghost story
He's just a ghost story
