Halsey - Ghost

I'm searching for something that I can't reach.

I don't like them innocent
I don't want no face fresh
Want them wearing leather
Begging, let me be your taste test.
I like the sad eyes, bad guys
Mouth full of white lies
Kiss me in the corridor,
but quick to tell me goodbye
.

You say that you're no good for me
Cause I'm always tugging at your sleeve
And I swear I hate you when you leave
But I like it anyway.

My ghost
Where'd you go?
I can't find you in the body sleeping next to me
My ghost
Where'd you go?
What happened to the soul you used to be?

You're a Rolling Stone boy
Never sleep alone boy
Got a million numbers
And they're filling up your phone, boy.
I'm off the deep end, sleeping
All night through the weekend.
Saying that I love him but
I know I'm gonna leave him.

You say that you're no good for me
Cause I'm always tugging at your sleeve
And I swear I hate you when you leave
But I like it anyway.

My ghost
Where'd you go?
I can't find you in the body sleeping next to me
My ghost
Where'd you go?
What happened to the soul you used to be?

I'm searching for something that I can't reach.

My ghost
Where'd you go?
I can't find you in the body sleeping next to me
My ghost
Where'd you go?
What happened to the soul you used to be?

“Ghost” appears on Halsey's debut album, Badlands, it was originally released as a single from Room 93, her first EP. Halsey mentions in her Spotify Commentary that this was the first song she wrote in a studio, along with her friend Dylan Scott of Young Rising Sons. For her sound, she said she wanted “church-y, scary, shimmery.” She claims this song became her signature and branched the sound of the Halsey project. From an interview with Metrolyrics: "Ghost,” for me, is a song about being in a relationship with someone who is not emotionally invested and then finally making up your mind to leave that situation and decide that you deserve better. And I did." A music video was released for the Room 93 version of “Ghost” on October 27th, 2014, followed by a revamped version exclusively released on The Fader on June 11th, 2015. The opening Japanese dialogue in the new video roughly translates to: "As I look back at the past together with her, suddenly she starts to disappear. Maybe she never really existed."
