I always use to think the song was related to Mikey being shot,you know,losing a loved one and just releasing the pain by singing,or something...hmmm...

this song is about loosing someone really close or important to you. that's why the title is "THE GHOST OF YOU". He tries to foget the incident that the person that he lose was dead. well that's my theory.... wehehehe.. LOL! ^_^

I've acutally stumbled upon a strange bit of info. I had to check the topic to make sure no one has posted it yet. But apprently if you play the ghost of you reverse Gerard is saying/singing another song. Its a bit hard to understand, but just listening to the song backwards makes you feel horribly sad for no reason, but the lyrics are sad as well. They're upsetting because you can hear most of the sad parts, some of it is hard to understand but if you listen to it a few times you hear it a bit more.

^the reversed version sounded really creepy... but it was soooo beautiful and it rock... but the lyrics was so weird......

Yeaaaaaah
I'm so alone
And I'm slitting my wrist
Yeaaaaaah
Yeaaaaaah
And more
I could be more
And I could be even more
I'm sorry
I was smarter than he was
The revenge has just won
I'm morphed
And I could be more
And I could be......more
And I could be more
And I could be....
Come with me
Hang in just a little
Or else
What is this now?
Not noooooooooow
This was not

She just barely went
So tomorrow
I'm sorry it was you
You're a
Cheaterrrrrr!
And more
And I could be more
And I could be...even more
My bloody hands
And I'm sweating even more
The revenge has just won
You're a.....
Cheaterrrrrrrr!

And I could be...even more
My bloody hands
And I'm sweating even more
The revenge has just won

I could be more
And I could be....
Come with me please
Hang in just a little
Or else
What is this now?
Die....Bitch!
Die....Bitch!
Small houses no lumber
That's the fad
Or anger, mourning, or
no more...
Shall you leave?
No thanks
Her around
And I'm sweating even more
The revenge has just won
You're a....
Cheaterrrrr!!!
And more
I could be more
And I could be....
Come with me please
Hang in just a little
or else
What is this now?
I, I, I should
Keep shoving
Heeeeerrrrr
So she's more
Then we could ever
Oh I ache this evening
And went dead forever
I feel the eyeliner ice-ier now

it makes you feel sad.
or at least it made me and my friends feel uncontrollable sadness

A lot of other MyChem songs if played backwards are different songs. Its weird put it seems like Gerard purposely did it.

It was pretty hard to make out most of the words, and a few lines make no sense whatsoever. Do you think this "alternate song" was intended, or could you play any song backwards and pick out words? It's a fascinating topic.

i let my friends listen to this song, and they like it... but when i tried to let them listen to other songs, they don't like it anymore. they said "WE LIKE THE SONG 'THE GHOST OF YOU' MUCH MORE THAN THE OTHER SONGS.... WE DON'T LIKE THE OTHER SONGS...... WOW! I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY CAN MAKE SONGS LIKE THAT.."

i think it's about someone you love dying and the things you never did experience with that person.
seriously, it makes me cry sometimes when i listen to it. i feel so connected to the song and everything it says is about my situation (but the person i'm talking about isn't dead, or maybe, i don't really know)

The songs about losing someone thats close to you. That's why mikey died in the film clip, because Gerard lost a person that was close to him, and that was his brother.

i take it as meaning like, losing someone close to you.
take the video for example, how mikey had gotten shot and passed away.
[the video was terribly upsetting, and it made me cry.]
but yeah. thats what i see.

Sigh, "The Ghost Of You", it's meaning is so simple yet powerful and right there in the lyrics. This was the first MCR song to actually make me shed a tear because it also reminds me of the night my girlfriend left...I'm so pathetic, I know, but this song is so deep and meaningful even without my own little take on it.

I agree, this was the first MCR song I ever heard and the music video made me cry. It made me think about the war and how pointless it is. Dude, real men cry over the ones who are gone. Bastards are the ones who dont care.
