Little Ghost by The White Stripes

Little ghost, little ghost
One I'm scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I'm the only one that sees you,
And I can't do much to please you
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above

The first moment that I met her
I did not expect a specter
When I shook her hand I really shook a glove
She looked into me so sweetly
And we left the room discreetly
No one else could know the secret of our love

Little ghost, little ghost
One I'm scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I'm the only one that sees you,
And I can't do much to please you
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above

Every morning I awoke
And I see my little ghost
Wond'rin' if it's really her that's lying there
I lean to touch her and I whisper
But not brave enough to kiss her
When I held her I was really holding air

Little ghost, little ghost
One I'm scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I'm the only one that sees you,
And I can't do much to please you
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above

Though I try my best to keep it
There really was no secret
Must have looked like I was dancing with the wall
No one else could see this apparition
But because of my condition
I fell in love with a little ghost and that was all

Little ghost, little ghost
One I'm scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I'm the only one that sees you,
And I can't do much to please you
And it's not yet time to meet the lord above
No, it's not yet time to meet the lord above

CAN YOU LOVE A GHOST? PROBABLY NOT. BUT YOU CAN READ THE WORDS OF A LONG DEAD POET AND THINK "IF I LIVED THEN I WOULD SEEK THIS PERSON OUT" SO MAYBE THAT IS LOVING A GHOST.

Failure. This song does not fit with the movie. They tried so hard to be different. Tried so hard to be cool and stand out. They stood out alright as a bunch of jackasses. As for the song. I like the idea of falling in love with a ghost. With an illusion only you can see. Love is like that. Only you can see it. And it haunts you
