Of Mice & Men - If We Were Ghosts Lyrics




If we were ghosts
You could see inside of me, right into my soul
To see what makes me up or focus on the holes
I'd be the world around the sun
Hopelessly spinning 'round you, yeah
Turning every leaf and stone
But that's not the way it goes

I have to wait till I get to the other side
Just to see you, just to see you
I have to wait till I get to the other side
Cause I never, never got to say goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

If we were ghosts
Floating high above the world
Little would they know
That to end is to begin
At least that's what I hope
And for a moment I could be
Something a bit more complete, yeah
But we never keep what makes us whole
And that's just the way it goes

I have to wait till I get to the other side
Just to see you, just to see you
I have to wait till I get to the other side
Cause I never, never got to say goodbye

I lament with every breath I take
The gentle sadness flows through everything
The gentle sadness flows through everything

I have to wait till I get to the other side
Just to see you, just to see you
I have to wait till I get to the other side
Cause I never, never got to say goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

    [Verse 1]
    If we were ghosts
    You could see inside of me, right into my soul
    To see what makes me up or focus on the holes
    I'd be the world around the sun
    Hopelessly spinning 'round you, yeah
    Turning every leaf and stone
    But that's not the way it goes

    [Chorus]
    I have to wait till I get to the other side
    Just to see you, just to see you
    I have to wait till I get to the other side
    'Cause I never, never got to say goodbye
    Goodbye, goodbye

    [Verse 2]
    If we were ghosts
    Floating high above the world, little would they know
    That to end is to begin least that's what I hope
    That for a moment I could be
    Something a bit more complete, yeah
    But we never keep what makes us whole
    And that's just the way it goes

    [Chorus]
    I have to wait till I get to the other side
    Just to see you, just to see you
    I have to wait till I get to the other side
    'Cause I never, never got to say goodbye


    [Bridge]
    And I lament with every breath I take
    The gentle sadness flows through everything
    The gentle sadness flows through everything

    [Chorus]
    I have to wait till I get to the other side
    Just to see you, just to see you
    I have to wait till I get to the other side
    'Cause I never, never got to say goodbye

    [Outro]
    Got to say goodbye
    Got to say goodbye
    Got to say goodbye
    Got to say goodbye

  5. Atheistation

    This song gets me hard. I relate to it because of my dead best friend. Thanks for this amazing, song, OM&M! Also, RIP Chester <3

  6. david entendu

    Just lost my best friend to a hit and run a week ago, a careless woman drove through the cross walk and hit him and kept driving instead of stopping to try and help him, to possibly save his life... I lost my other best friend I grew up with to a drunk driver a few years back. The anguish I've been feeling right now is so much to bear, but this song (as sad as it makes me) really really helps me cope. Thank you so much for this OM&M and Rise Records, been following the label and band for years now and you guys never fail to impress and offer music that makes me feel alive, that helps me get through the day. Sincerely, thank you...

  7. Underground Warrior

    Imagine Austin sing this too...

  8. Happy Fun Time

    It's about time they release an actual fucking album since Austin.

  9. Jeffrey Whiting Jr.

    I'll admit, I cried when I heard this the first time because of how much I missed Chester Bennington. Still one of the greatest vocalists I ever heard while growing up.

  10. Nath F

    What a fantastic tribute to Chester Bennington!! Of Mice & Men are a great band 👌🏼

  11. Kyle Harmon

    This song gives me chills. Love this fucking band

  12. Adrian Macedonio Marquez

    The best bands 🎸🎶🎵

  13. Halo One

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XysU3LTr-Oc&index=2&t=0s&list=LLEF_MWgmHRYhjUmnQXdhXHw

  14. Grizzworld54

    My dudes, this album has some of the best overall composed lyrics in a while. Especially Instincts and Warzone, small sections but puts you in dire perspective. Kinda gives you a run for your life as the song goes on, so fucking sick!

  15. viscountiss

    This song is absolutely brilliant, goosebumps everywhere

  16. Isaac Jimenez

    Getting FLAW vibes from this tbh

  17. Glenn Butler

  18. Thy Art Is Conor

    Kill me x

  19. Anon

    best song on the album

  20. Death Children

    44 Justin bieber's fans dislike this video

  21. LSConcerts

    Such a good song!

  22. C Van Buskirk

    Although this is dedicated to Chester, it breaks my heart because it makes me think of my mother who I lost 8 years ago (in June). I never got to say goodbye and this song seems to dredge up all those feels.

    Pitra Agung

    Please, stay strong 🙏🏼

  23. Peter Göke

    RIP Chester... This song is so awesome

  24. HayesByeGrey

    This is my favorite song from the album and when I read that this song was inspired by Chester, I cried. I made a video of this song (click if you want to watch). R.I.P Chester.

  25. Laxmi Dubey

    really beautiful

  26. ashley stonem

    such a beautiful song. I listen to it over and over again.

  27. Jacob_S6RC EM0AL1TY

    is it just Pauley on Vocals now ... i haven't really paid attention to them w/o Carllile

    King Infinite

    Jacob_S6RC EM0AL1TY it’s been Aaron singing, screaming and playing bass since 2016

  28. Steven William

    La mejor cancion del album¡¡¡.

  29. David Carter

    I really like this song. Its got an APC feel to it

  30. wifelikecow

    I get the feeling this would be bone chillingly good in acoustic form.

  31. kylo iren

    Aaron's voice speaks to my soul

  32. EverybodyLovesAlf

    I wish more of their music was softer like this.

    Wajdi Bouzidi

    I hope so

  33. tthompson719

    I sadly just said goodbye to a friend who unexpectedly passed away a week ago. Right after the funeral this song came on my shuffle and it broke me down. Cherish everybody around you all the time because you never know when their time or your will be over one day.

  34. Rosa Novacik

    ¿Por qué hay dislikes? Si esto es hermoso.

  35. Peter_LP 18

  48. Саид Юсупов

    One of my favorite song. I love u,guys. So emotional song

  49. Presata

    This is remiding me so much of Three Days Grace with Adam [ im sad now :( ]

    Tyler Albertson

    Presata I said the same exact thing.

    Presata

    Tyler Albertson, their new song is good but doesnt feel like TDG anymore

    Isaac Jimenez

    Presata just sounds like My Darkest Days now

  50. Aaron Anderson

    best song off album

  51. Klaudia

    Chester 💔

  52. Vernon Salisbury

    I've had this song on repeat. It's such a sad soothing track full of emotions! I even thought, damn, this song reminds me of Chester. Well, from what I read it is about Chester. I'm going to miss Austin and Chester in this music community so much. I've modeled my singing and screaming voice after those guys... with that said, I LOVE Aaron in this band, the new album has been on repeat all week! This bands future is sooo bright! :)

  53. Underground Warrior

    It's not too late, it's never too late...



    Oh, wrong song, oops

  54. CTzenZarybianie

    One of the best tributes to Chester imo, great 😭😭😭

    Angel Villegas

    MagzLP00 im confused how is this a tribute song to Chester?

    CTzenZarybianie

    Nazo 103 Yup, it was made to honor Chester, there are some articles about that in internet. Of Mice & Men is a friend of Linkin Park, so Chester also.

  55. Руслан Коротков

    Rip Chester (((((((

  56. Mojo Mike

    If we were ghosts!

  57. Sam Wilson

    i seriously don't know what to think of this album. on one aspect i like that it is a different tone, but at another it is quite a change from the original sound that i love. i guess that i'll be stepping out of the comfort zone.

  58. ian quebedeaux

    Reminds me of Halo Legends "the prototype"

  59. Reem Mordechai

    Can someone make a 10-hour version of this so I can stop raping the replay button?

  60. Jesús Bryan Toledo Moya

    Si fuéramos fantasmas
    Entenderías en lo más profundo de mi alma...
    ;-; aún la extraño

  61. wintersoul

    beautiful song!

  62. The Kim In The North

    RIP Chester

  63. Apl 1806

    Literally every song they make is flawless ❤️❤️❤️❤️👌🏾

  64. PoetryEmotion94

    Listening to this made me think of a friend of mine I lost several years ago from suicide. At least he's not in pain anymore. Miss you brother, this year would've been our 10th year of friendship.

    Eric Hernandez

    PoetryEmotion94 i feel this.. I lost my gf a year ago and damb i miss those five years we had with eachother.

  65. asking silence while romance

    One of the favourite songs of 2018. So beautiful & full of emotions ...just amazing😍

  66. Mr Velociderp

    If the lyrics on every song weren't generic trash, this could be a p good album. Unfortunately, OM&M settling for the average common denominator nowadays

  67. Charlie :P

    Two months ago i thought that this album will be a shit, but all this time i was wrong, this album is good, not a 9 but a 8 or 8.5

  68. Tiernan Avery

    The only song I was excited for

  69. John Wesner

    Easily my favorite off the record.

  70. セツSETSVFX

    RIP Chester

  71. Marrk Plavecki

    Sounds like a perfect circle kind of but this is my fav song off this album

  72. English tear 79

    Best album of the last 12 months on par with memento mori by gemini syndrome loved it from start 2 finish sooooo glad the screaming has been toned down now i can enjoy this band properly

  73. Ricardo Fuentes

    One of my 2 most favorite songs in the album next to how will you live 😀

  74. Dustin Flyte

    Definitely not the same miss the original og

  75. KINGHS P97

    Softest song on the album but my personal favorite

  76. Tyler Albertson

    Gives me a 3 Days Grace vibe.

    Koragh

    Tyler Albertson lol

    I_bombhills

    It does tbh

    Pointless Videos

    Tyler Albertson “I hate everything about you” drum beat

    Carlos Collins

    I got toolvibes

    John McClane

    so true man. its cool you thought of that

  77. jck1794

    It's not that I don't like the new music, it just sounds nothing like their old style. And there's nothing wrong with change, but their old style is what made them....them. They sound like a completely different band now. Idk man.

    Jacqueline Muñoz

    I miss the old sound as well, but the change is good. The band would become boring if it always sounds the same, don't you think that? 🤔

    English tear 79

    jck1794 they sound better now the screaming has been toned down just an opinion but austin leaving was a step in the right direction for om&m

    Derrick Jee

    Yeah I don't come to the comments to hate on Of Mice & Men, but damn it really is not even remotely the same band. I'm not really into this style of music, or the new sound they have. I try, every time they release new music, to listen to it and enjoy. It's just not for me. I'm glad so many people can get into it though.

    It's totally fine for bands to experiment with new sounds, change their sound over time, replace members of the band, etc, but this is a complete 180. It's a total change from what it used to be.

  78. Denis DK

    еееее бой

  79. Ruto Kipkulei

    Those feels.

  80. Ashtray Cereal

    fuck. i got an email about this so now i'm here and i feel scene again 😭 it's so beautiful aaaa

  81. •JakeTWA •

    My favorite song on the album

  82. Imraan Akollo-Arenz

    The fact that this song was written about Chester makes it more tear jerking


    RIP Chester

  83. Faisal Salam

    Chester 😭

  84. Skull Kid

    Really loving the new stuff. I might miss Austin but still they don't disappoint.

  85. Collin Allison

    I like this. Very different from the rest of the album, where every song sounds the same.

  86. Music_is _life_36

    long awaited album im 2 songs in and it is SOLID

  87. Dead_Kevin0007

    Fucking amazing album Of Mice & Men love you guys, you guys are my inspiration

  88. Magical Horse

    best song lyrically so far

  89. camnez1

    I actually really dig this track. Super emotional. Yeh. Check out my review of the full album here: https://youtu.be/F1FsuKkQ9uE

  90. n0ztic

    Literally goosebumps all the way through! Kinda freaking me out.

  91. Engineer

    Favorite song on the album so far. Can't wait to see them at the Stone Pony next month!

  92. kimdracula

    Chester would be proud.

    Jacqueline Muñoz

    I I miss Ches a lot 💔
    It's a beautiful song

    lost spirits

    Yes he would be 😞💗 still can't believe he's gone

    Caleb Roberts

    Well, not to sound morbid but if he was still alive, this song would most likely not exist...meaning he wouldn't be "proud" in the first place. But I get what you're saying.

    River Swift

    That's just something that doesn't need to be pointed out Caleb, man. Beautiful song.

    Inner Reptile Exotics

    Im sure Hes up in heaven Smiling down on everyone who has paid tribute to his beautiful life

  93. Miss Glambert

    Fav song, this is so amazing...
