The single:
Ghost is as much about a sexual experience that haunts as it is about freedom. The first two lines of the song acknowledge that it's about opening up to the experience to have the experience. The vocals are raw: sometimes whispering, whaling, broken down into rhythm and rhyme, all part of a performance to convey there are no rules anymore.
