There's a ghost in my bedroom, it haunts me at night.
I've asked him to leave, but he keeps stopping by.
Just when I think that I'm alone, it shows up again with a friend this time.
And now this is getting old.
I don't know what to do.
Metaphorically, this ghost is you.

Now this ghost in my bedroom it gives me advice,
He promised one day that he'd teach me to fight.
Now when I think that I'm alone, he comes up my way with a devil's smile singing,
"This is now my home. You're my wish come true."
When you reach that golden cloud, I'll be there with you.

If there were monsters in the closet,
Well, I don't think I would be surprised.
I hear them call out from my window.
They try and trick me to come outside.
(I won't let you down)
We talked all day,
I can't tell if he's real or a made-up version of her again.
Never alone 'cause I've got you.
Get this out of my head.

No I won’t waste away my love onto something new.
If there's only one way out, I'll come back for you.

If I get stuck out there forever,
Tell everyone that I said goodbye.
You're on my lifelong list of wishes,
And I could bring you back, but we don't belong here now.

If he stays, well that just means I’ve got numbered days
'Til I go back to my little world where it's just me and my imaginary friends.

So go on, love, find a new direction,
(hold my heart, keep it for protection).
And don't get stuck on your way.
The other side's a scary place.
(Do your best not to be afraid),
Lose it all when we run away.
(Letting go of the little things you know that I do).

There's a ghost in my bedroom, and he's dying to meet you,
(Ah, ah).
God knows he's heard all about you.
I guess he's friendly enough though.
I'll see him more,
(There's a ghost in my bedroom)
Always sneaking roses in your bed,
(Ah, ah).
He's in your bed, says he won't let you down.
He will, he will, he will.

(There's a ghost in my bedroom),
(Ah, ah).
(He will, he will, he will),
(When the world is crashing down, when the world is crashing down). [x2]

Softly, slowly how can I go down?
I want you to notice when I let go.
Softly, slowly how can I come down?
I want you to notice when I let go.

(There's a ghost in my bedroom),
(Ah, ah).
