Paramore – Misguided Ghosts lyrics

{Verse 1}
I am going away for a while
But I'll be back, don't try and follow me
'Cause I'll return as soon as possible
See I'm trying to find my place
But it might not be here where I feel safe
We all learn to make mistakes


{Chorus}
And run
From them, from them
With no direction
We'll run from them, from them
With no conviction

'Cause I'm just one of those ghosts
Traveling endlessly
Don't need no roads
In fact they follow me

And we just go in circles

{Verse 2}
So Now I'm told that this is life
And pain is just a simple compromise
So we can get what we want out of it
Would someone care to classify,
Our broken hearts and twisted minds
So I can find someone to rely on

{Chorus}
And run
To them, to them
Full speed ahead
Oh you are not useless
We are just

Misguided ghosts
Traveling endlessly
The ones we trusted the most
Pushed us far away
And there's no one road
We should not be the same
But I'm just a ghost
And still they echo me

They echo me in circles

    You get lost in all the confusion, you don't know you are anymore. You are lost. Wandering. Without anyone, anything. Lonley in the world. The cruel world. You just need to get away, run away from fears, mistakes, broken hearts, with no one to reley on. Going on the same path, not finding what you are looking for, and not knowing what it is. You have a meaning, but don't know what it is.

    I believe it is about searching for the meaning in life. Sometimes we go through so much heartache and feel so much anger towards the world that it is hard to see the point in everyday life. This song is a reassurance, that it isn't just you who feels this way. Everyone feels lost and broken at one point or another, and we don't always trust the people around us. We tend to feel like ghosts who go unnoticed when we need to be noticed the most. This is a song that brings hope to those lost souls.

    This song means everything and resembles how my current situation is now. I sing this song everytime, deep down, quietly just dying and wishing how I could just sing this song to my bestfriend (who I have been secretly admire and love him for the past 7 years) cause he's been stressing out with life. I know my post doesn't make sense. So let's just listen and sing along to the song: b

    Typically as a youth or young adult, people try to find themselves. Oftentimes we need to seperate ourselves from our parents to find our own direction in life and make our own decisions and mistakes. Rightfully so, parents struggle to let go, and often hold on tighter during the transition. At the same time seperating ourselves from our security blanket is slow moving and we all too well want a replacement of someone else to rely on, even if just emotionally. Ultimately we are small images of our parents, but still our own. "we should not be the same" yet we are still ghosts that echo our parents as we circle into their role as we mature.
    I love the depth and availability for interpretation in this song.

    My friend and I are doing a dance to this for the talent show. And I am her ghost, or whatever she is running from. I represent everything that has hurt her all of her regrets that she is trying to escape. But I just haunt her and she cannot run away from the fact that she made all of these mistakes even though they help her find who she is. She is trying not to let her mistakes define her, but she let's them control her because she doesn't know how to know cope and deal when she finds that running won't do anything. She just needs time to break free and learn who she is.
