My Chemical Romance - The Ghost of You

I never
Said I'd lie and wait forever
If I died we'd be together now
I can't always just forget her
But she could try

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home

Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the things that You never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever ever...
Ever...

Get the feeling that you're never
All alone and I remember now
At the top of my lungs in my arms she dies
She dies

At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I? Should I?
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna catch me

If I fall
If I fall (down)

And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me

Never coming home
Never coming home

Continuing on the album’s story, “The Ghost of You” tells listeners of the protagonist’s longing for his missing love, and frustration from worrying he’ll never complete his task to bring her back. The band was nervous about the music video for this song because they had heard that Green Day was also releasing a video centered on war within the same time frame. Upon seeing the video, "Wake Me Up When September Ends" from American Idiot, the band was relieved to find out that their video focused on a much different aspect of war than Green Day's video had. The title for this song was borrowed from an advertisement in Alan Moore's critically acclaimed graphic novel "Watchmen". The advertisement is for "Nostalgia", a prominent symbol in the piece which is accompanied with the advertisement "Oh how the ghost of you fades"
