Coldplay - Ghost Story Lyrics

Maybe I'm just a ghost
Disappear when anybody's close
Go through you when you try to hold
Try to hold me near

Maybe I'm just a ghost
Emptier than anybody knows
Maybe I'm on the ropes
Or I'm not even here

Every time I try to walk through walls
More walls appear
What's the point of feeling love for you
When you don't believe I'm here?
What's the point of tryna raise your voice
If no one ever hears?
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

Maybe I'm a ghost
Just a whisper in a puff of smoke
A secret that nobody knows
No one will ever hear

Or maybe I'm a ghost
Specter on a roller-coaster
Thorn without a rose
Something people fear

And every time I thought I'd walk through walls
It's all becoming clear
What's the point of feeling love for you
When you don't believe I'm here?
What's the point of saying 'Rescue me!'
If no one ever hears?
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

And every time I thought I'd walk through walls
It's all becoming clear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear
Every time I try to pull you close
You disappear

  1. Gilsislene Silva

    O som da guitarra é e arrepiar 😍!

  2. James Helvang

    Love this song. 3:17 and on, is absolutely disgustingly beautiful. Wish they had carried on another four bars with the instrumental break though :-)

  3. Daryl Dixon


  4. Leyslainne Quedevez

    Cadê os Brasileiros que amam Coldplay ? #Amooooo ♥

  5. Bhavyanshi Gupta

    Listening to this, I feel like I've discovered a precious gem!

  6. hbishop34

    Why can’t if find this on Spotify? Also, I agree, super underrated. But Coldplay’s most underrated song is Swallowed In The Sea


    Nah, That'll be Cemeteries of London

  7. lakoper 22

    This song and this music video and THIS BAND.. They remind me to keep holding on to life. They remind me of everything i love

  8. Gwendolyn Lisboa

    I hate that we live in a time where this is no longer appreciated. this is one of Coldplay’s most perfect songs. If this had been released back then at their peak, it for sure would’ve gone down in history.

  9. Chekhov

    This video reminds me of The Beatles -- Three Guitars, one Drummer.

  10. Kim

    Just rediscovered this song after 4 years while baked asf. It really can’t get any better than this ☺️

  11. Valou Izbak

    2019 Jordanie why not💛 la musique est fantastique it's now or never✌

  27. mayra escamilla

    ❤all they're songs are good but this one in particular is awesome

  28. Ahlam Ibrahim

    Where are all those people who always complain about Coldplay's new songs? This song is not so old it's - after 2011 - and it's as good as the ones in Parachute album.

  29. Lucyfer Dea Bellum

    This song kinda sounds like an original that should of been on " Yello"

    Just saying!!!

  30. Steve Thaysen

    You dissappeeeeeaaaaarrr

  31. Kayla Kemp

    When he says yeaahh
    And the beat drops

    The depression 😂
    I’ll leave now

  32. Kayla Kemp

    Everytime I would play this on the way to Vegas and I have pics and vids with this song in it and I just remember it and it makes me cry because something happened and I remember it but then I remember the trip I did with that person 😭

  33. Reuben Balkumar

    Love this it’s so different

  36. Diana Na


  37. Jorge Villanueva

    More than a ghost,
    Chris is AN ANGEL!!! ❤

  38. Achmad Giffary

    ghost stories album is a really unique album of them for me.. it kinda reminds me of their music in the 2000s but at the same time it also reminds me of their recent music.. it's best of both decades love it!

  39. Recklezz

    These lyrics always tear my heart in two, but that’s alright! There’s nothing Coldplay’s music can’t fix! 💙


    “...What's the point of feeling love for you when you don't believe I'm here?”

    “What's the point of trying to raise your voice if no one ever hears?”

    “Everytime I try to pull you close
    You disappear...”


    “And everytime I thought I'd walk through walls
    It's all becoming clear...”

    “What's the point in feeling love for you
    When you don't believe I'm here?”

    “What's the point in saying 'Rescue me!'
    If no one ever hears?”

    “Every time I try to pull you close
    You disappear...”

    “Every time I try to pull you close
    You disappear.....”

  47. Angela 1989

    Chris, but why is it so difficult for you and a group to deliver a letter or even an e-mail? I have been writing on the site for years, but I would be glad to know that you were sure you read them. Help me realize my dream. Being able to reach you at least with my words ... you come to me every single day ... because Chris your voice for me is freedom, it's emotion, it's joy, it's strength ... your voice is Life. ... in millions they would like to write to you ... You have a life of your own as we all have in common with this planet ... but I want to be one of those people who comes to you and takes a picture by embracing the own dream. I wish I could reach you even with just a letter. Chris will spend years but I will never stop chasing my dream which is a wonderful reality. Get to you. Thanks for existing! Maybe you came to Italy in Matera in my city ... I'm exaggerated ... but why not ... Chris you belong to my soul ... Coldplay to my heart! To say that I love you is an understatement!

  48. USMCLP

    Jonny adding some layered melody with his guitar at 1:56. It pans on the left side of your headphones.
