Lyrics

When the room is quiet
The daylight almost gone
It seems there’s something I should know
Well, I ought to leave
But the rain it never stops
And I’ve no particular place to go

Just when I think I’m winning
When I’ve broken every door
The ghosts of my life
Blow wilder than before
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life
Blew wilder than the wind

Well, I’m feeling nervous
Now I find myself alone
The simple life’s no longer there
Once I was so sure
Now the doubt inside my mind
Comes and goes, but leads nowhere

This track is included because David himself said that Ghosts was the first track that indicated the new direction of his compositions after the Japan period.

David recorded new vocals for this track for the Everything And Nothing compilation in 2000 (which also appeared on the Victim Of Stars compilation)!
