Your Friend, Ghost – Glass House

One more beautiful song by Your Friend, Ghost

“Glass House” bases its feel around brooding acoustic guitar melodies combined with a minimalist piano accompaniment. Melancholy at its best, “Glass House” explores the tortures of heartbreak and self doubt surrounding the loss of a pivotal relationship. It is not just the end of the relationship which brings pain but the ways in which the mind continues to torture and reshape memories to fit our own self depreciating narratives following the departure of those we have held dear. “Glass House” attempts to explore the ways that individuals who have left our lives can have more of an impact in their absence than they might have had when present.

LYRICS:

Oh that faint glow
And that awful sound
I'm awake again amn't I now
And I know that you won't be coming around
And if you did, wonder if I can see you through all these clouds
And I won't forget the time considered misused
Or the pain from the fall
Like jumping without a parachute
And I know it's probably my fault
I didn't know what else to do
How do you choose between losing you
and losing you

And it's hard living in this glass house
Especially when you're on the outside
Dancing in the dark
And I'll never forget
The night we fell in love under the stars
Trying to hide
Your mind from your heart so you thought
You could hide
And I wouldn't be there just as lost, lost, lost, lost

I'm afraid to talk
Cuz it's hard to choose
The words to describe the truth
I'm alright
Is that enough of a lie for you
Or do you need more proof
That pain fades over time
And scars are just lessons that ensue
Like the pills they never helped at night
And I'd still fall asleep to thoughts of you
Like I always do

And it's hard living in this glass house
Especially when you're on the outside
Dancing in the dark
And I'll never forget
The night we fell in love under the stars
Trying to hide
Your mind from your heart so you thought
You could hide
And I wouldn't be there just as lost, lost, lost, lost

And it's hard living in this glass house
Especially when you're on the outside
dancing in the dark
And I'll never forget
The night we fell in love under the stars
Trying to hide
Your mind from your heart so you thought
You could hide
And I wouldn't be there just as lost, lost, lost, lost
And I wouldn't be there just as lost, lost, lost, lost

And it's hard living in this glass house
Especially when you're on the outside
You're on the outside, dancing, dancing in the dark
