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

This sound!
I was 9 at the time - my heart thumped and panicked.
If I shew any feeling / joy whatsoever my twin Simon Tudor would kick and punch me.
Words can never describe how cruel he was to my heart and feelings.
Destroying my toys, my heart, my friendships, my schooling -my desire to win - gives me nightmares to this day. Im 48
Destroying my violin bow in 1984 hurt me so much. I will never ever forgive you.


Not ever. Never.


There is cruelty and there is cruelty.

How did one so young write such lyrics....so many people can relate to this Masterpiece...Haunting but beautiful at the same time...

Maybe morissey was talking about him when he wrote "how could someone so young write words so sad"

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.

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.

@Skid and Pump HD great insight... Makes me sad I wasn't born to experience this upon release. Still sounds fresh now to be fair...
