Depeche Mode - Ghost Lyrics




I'm the ghost in your house
Calling your name
My memory lingers
You'll never be the same
I'm the hole in your heart
I'm the stain in your bed
The phantom in your fingers
The voices in your head

One touch is all it took
To draw you in
To leave you hooked
One kiss, you paid the price
You had a taste
Of paradise

Now you're running in circles
Chasing imaginary footsteps
Reaching for shadows
In the bed where I once slept

I'm the ghost in your house
Calling your name
My memory lingers
You'll never be the same
I'm the hole in your heart
I'm the stain in your bed
The phantom in your fingers
The voices in your head

One thought is all it takes
You lose control
You make mistakes
This pain will never leave
Until I die
You'll always grieve

Now you're falling to pieces
Seeing my face wherever you go
Talking to strangers
From a place they'll never know

Depeche Mode Ghost Comments
  1. Toad Umbridge

    B-side? Are you kidding? It's a masterpiece

  2. Thomas SHARONIARD

    Ghost is an absolute masterpiece stranded on B-Side. How to describe the crime ? Proof here that DM could have provided their most impressive and vibrant album but prefered to use the futuristic retrograde to be more capricious and missed a very great opportunity to make SOTU a fantastic immersion in a new era where Wrong and Peace would have sound with a magnificent rock tragedy like I thought it was a case during the first echos of Wrong and Peace in a stadium before the SOTU release

  3. Charlie M.P.

    I still can't believe this one was a B side... This is so catchy!

  4. zarcon85

    what a masterpiece. stunning. ands they leave THIS off of their album...tssstsss...

  5. Sergio Jimenez

    Depeche Mode is ...so GREAT

  6. Denise Gesell

    Depeche Mode ist mein Leben

  7. Blake Carswell

    The voices in your head? I can think of no other voice I’d rather be haunted by than Dave’s.

  8. Luiz Scheibe

    The sounds of universe

  9. Charlie M.P.

  10. John Hinchliffe

    0:35 *Mart, I don't feel so good...*
    All joking aside, this is one of the best SOTU tracks, and one of Depeche Mode's most haunting tracks. Beautiful.

    I'm the ghost in your house
    Calling your name
    My memory lingers
    You'll never be the same
    I'm the hole in your heart
    I'm the stain in your bed
    The phantom in your fingers
    The voices in your head
    One touch is all it took
    To draw you in
    To leave you hooked
    One kiss, you paid the price
    You had a taste
    Of paradise
    Now you're running in circles
    Chasing imaginary footsteps
    Reaching for shadows
    In the bed where I once slept
    I'm the ghost in your house
    Calling your name
    My memory lingers
    You'll never be the same
    I'm the hole in your heart
    I'm the stain in your bed
    The phantom in your fingers
    The voices in your head
    One thought is all it takes

    You make mistakes
    This pain will never leave
    Until I die
    You'll always grieve
    Now you're falling to pieces
    Seeing my face wherever you go
    Talking to strangers
    From a place they'll never know

    Martin Gore composition of course. He comes up with the best sexiest, twisted lyrics. David is a great singer, but i would prefer this on SOTU, to any of the songs David is credited with writing. No disrespect, but Martin is definitely the genius.

    Charlie M.P.

    Don't you like this one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_O37cE1j64

  16. Silvia Cosentino

    their best song ever a b side, they can afford it ;)

    RD Zed

    Violator B side destroys this.

  17. Nelson Romero

    What is the musical genre of this music? it's great 😍💖💘

    Dawn C

    N R Depeche is hard to pin into one genre. I just think of it as Depeche Mode music as they defy labels!

    Dishwasher Jones

    Stormy Clouds couldn't have said it better myself 👍👍👍

  18. Scott Beckstead

    What a song...

  19. jason lee Viljoen

    Can't wait for the b side album. Give these tunes there due

  20. Chris Harden

    Just another throwaway Depeche Mode song that didn't make an album..and it is of course great!

    Danilo Araujo

    I found this song in the "Sounds of the Universe" album (Deluxe Version), available on Spotify.

    MisAnnThorpe

    I seem to be one of the few that doesn't consider Sounds of the universe a complete and utter abomination but this is a curious omission indeed. I mean, it's not as if this or Oh Well aren't better songs than Another hole to feed or Corrupt, is it!

    Chris Harden

    I think SOTU is not bad. They tried something different using old synths and some of the songs might have sounded better with different instruments and production but there are definitely some good songs in there. It is the Depeche Mode way to try different styles and whilst it doesn't always work, it keeps the fans guessing and coming back for more. They also like tucking away some goods songs on b sides and in other places..like Free from the Playing The Angel time.Great song!

  22. Setina Oversea

    Seeing Dave so closely is one of my greatest ambitions

  23. Substance Seven

  28. cinderclawz

    Incredible song with the video to match

  29. Art Dickens

    unbridled arrogance at its best.....imagine yourself reading this to someone you used to love.....gives me shivers to think about it..."NOW YOUR FALLING TO PIECES....SEEING MY FACE WHEREVER YOU GO....." (will someone please create an emoticon for "gutteral, testosterone laced, deep growl....)

  30. Tatiana de Campos

    Is this the official video clip?

    katherine joaquim

    unfortunately, no, it's not. it should be. this video is fan made and seriously freakin
