Ghosts
Japan Lyrics


When the room is quiet
The daylight almost gone
It seems there's something I should know
Well I ought to leave but the rain it never stops
And I've no particular place to go

Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life blow wilder than before
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life blew wilder than the wind

Well I'm feeling nervous
Now I find myself alone
The simple life's no longer there
Once I was so sure
Now the doubt inside my mind
Comes and goes but leads nowhere

Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life blow wilder than before
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life blew wilder than the wind

Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life blow wilder than before
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life blew wilder than the wind

When the room is quiet
The daylight almost gone
It seems there's something I should know
Well I ought to leave but the rain it never stops
And I've no particular place to go
Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life blow wilder than before
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life blew wilder than the wind
Well I'm feeling nervous
Now I find myself alone
The simple life's no longer there
Once I was so sure
Now the doubt inside my mind
Comes and goes but leads nowhere
Just when I think I'm winning
When I've broken every door
The ghosts of my life blow wilder than before
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
When my chance came to be king
The ghosts of my life blew wilder than the wind

Featured in the Season Two opener of McDonald & Dodds with 80's icons Martin Kemp and Patsy Kensit in starring roles.

I wouldn't call myself a fan of this genre of music (New Romantic & New Wave) but some of the bands had truly memorable songs and signature voices...

Fludev

That's where I heard it first too, great song

For some reason Japan seems to have become an overlooked and almost forgotten band of the 80's. This is despite producing some of the classiest material of that decade.

Charles Hughes

@Last Task Crewmate Phase 1 great insight... Makes me sad I wasn't born to experience this upon release. Still sounds fresh now to be fair...

Ken Woolley

Commercially they weren’t that successful I believe the only other top 10 single was I second that emotion written by Smokey Robinson. Compared to bands like Duran Duran and The Human League they were 2nd division saying that this song is phenomenal

Last Task Crewmate Phase 1

Japan were probably the most underrated band of the 80s.
David Sylvia's voice is haunting beautiful and makes the hairs on my neck jump to attention everytime.
He is the male version of Kate Bush.
Much loved yet never truly understood at the time.

paul keith and still so fresh now. January 2020

After forgetting about this for many years I bizarrely heard it in a dream last night and decided to check it out here.
It's as good as I remember.
Classic Japan.

my mum showed me this today, because a song i was listening to reminded her of it, something about the synths they were using are the same or similar to this song. but damn music in the 60's to 80's (this DID come out in the 80's right?) was awesome, feel like i missed out as a (barely XD) 90's kid. this song really does speak levels, from the lyrics making it clear the subject isnt about actual ghosts, yet the instruments, the slightly off key bell synths implying a ghostly presence, i love it.
