It's literally about a girl that he used to be madly in love with and that's it all those sentences that you think have deeper meanings are literally just helping to explain how he feels. And if you want you can go to The Airborne Toxic Event website where they state that it's about a girl he was madly in love with but f**ked him over and he's just seeing her after not seeing her in a long a*s tome.

Doesn't have to be a ghost, just could be someone you haven't seen in a long time or possibly someone that haunts your memories, hence.
Although not saying the dead thing is wrong. Just saying it could mean either or, but hearing the rest of the song pretty sure shes alive and its just someone that broke his heart or f****d him over somehow. Just my 2 cents though.

No, no, no. The girl isn't alive. This song is about how the girl he loves has died. Notice how it says "and your friends say what is it, you look like you've seen a ghost. " he gets sooo drunk at the bar he's seeing her again. At the beginning it quotes "or at least that's when you lose yourself for a minute or two. " he loses touch with reality & then he starts hallucinating about her.
Sorry, I don't mean to sound harsh, but you have to look beyond the words itself but deeper into the all the words as a whole.
Listen to the song again & you'll see what I mean! :)
