Ghost Town - Adam Lambert






The Experience: I tried to believe...my heart is a ghost town... When love disappears from our lives, there is a void, a sense of emptiness just like the one you see in a ghost town.







Music video: The video is all in black and white with images of Adam Smith, a very dreary and sad looking ghost town and a series of quick and various dancers. The video can be seen through many angles, but in general it just seems to reflect a sense of passing things and endless longing.

Meaning of Ghost Town: in a review Adam Lambert himself said that this song does not have a specific meaning. It is open so that whoever listes to it may have an existential experience of love and emptiness. 
In my opinion, it reflects the loneliness of someone who has had a been left alone and abandoned. But even ghost towns have memories and ideals from which something new can be built.

Ask yourself: Am I living in a ghost town? Do I have hope of finding love again? 


LYRICS:

[Adam Lambert]
Died last night in my dreams
Walking the streets
Of some old ghost town
I tried to believe
In God and James Dean
But Hollywood sold out

[Verse 2]
Saw all of the saints
Lock up the gates
I could not enter
Walked into the flames
Called out your name
But there was no answer

[Chorus]
And now I know my heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

[Verse 3]
Died last night in my dreams
All the machines
Had been disconnected
Time was thrown at the wind
And all of my friends
Had been disaffected

[Verse 4]
Now, I'm searching for trust
In a city of rust
A city of vampires
Tonight, Elvis is dead
And everyone's spread
And love is a satire

[Chorus]
And now I know my heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town

[Bridge]
There's no one left in the world
I'm gunslingin'
Don't give a damn if I go
Down, down, down
I got a voice in my head that keeps singing
Oh, my heart is a ghost town

[Outro]
My heart is a ghost town
Oh, my heart is a ghost town
(Said, my heart)
My heart is a ghost town
My heart is a ghost town
