I used to skip this song when I could still run and it came on my iPod. But lately, I do feel more like a ghost. It's inevitable. It's like you're hanging between two worlds and you're not really sure who identifies with you anymore (can they even see me?), or who you identify with anymore. It gets wonky. God is still good. It's just this process. I have to figure it out. So, turns out, now that I can no longer run, I like the song! That's the good news!
I'm going away for a while.
But I'll be back.
Don't try and follow me.
'Cause I'll return as soon as possible.
See, I'm trying to find my place.
But it might not be here where I feel safe.
We all learn to make mistakes.
And run from them, from them.
With no direction.
We'll run from them, from them.
With no conviction.
'Cause I'm just one of those ghosts Travelin' endlessly.
Don't need no roads.
In fact, they follow me.
And we just go in circles.
And now I'm told that this is life.
That pain is just a simple compromise.
So we can get what we want out of it.
Would someone care to classify?
Our broken hearts and twisted minds.
So I can find someone to rely on And run to them, to them ...
And run to them, to them. Full speed ahead. Oh, you are not useless. We are just misguided ghosts.
The ones we trusted the most
Pushed us far away
And there's no one road
We should not be the same
But I'm just a ghost
And still they echo me
They echo me in circles.
