Jamie-Lee Kriewitz – “Ghost” lyrics (Germany 2016)

The Voice of Germany winner Jamie-Lee Kriewitz clocked up another victory when she won Unser Lied für Stockholm, Germany’s national final to select its song for Eurovision 2016. Jamie-Lee won with “Ghost”, which was also her winner’s single from The Voice. Can the supernatural song give her a lucky third victory at Eurovision?

With its haunting minimalist sound, “Ghost” tells the story of a troubled relationship – “This is the ghost of you haunting the ghost of me”. Jamie-Lee looks back at past drama, concluding, “We don’t need a lifetime to figure out what we missed”.

Just like ghosts, Jamie-Lee and her supernatural sweetie are “Lonely in a crowded room together” and she demands, “Tell me who’s scared now”.

Jamie wonders if her doomed relationship could be altered – “Can’t we get an alternate ending?”

And that’s also a question Germany will be asking themselves as Jamie-Lee heads to Stockholm to hopefully give Germany a happier ending than their nil points in 2015.

Jamie-Lee Kriewitz – “Ghost”

“Ghost” – Jamie-Lee Kriewitz lyrics

The story of us, is it already told?
Let’s tear the book apart, start to rewrite it all
We’re already gone but still in this together
Like a dragon to his gold, we’re still holding on

Our life won’t wait for us to live
We don’t need a lifetime to figure out what we missed
The love we get is the love we give
A money chest full of love but we hid the key

This is the ghost of you
Haunting the ghost of me
Lonely in a crowded room together
Tell me who’s scared now

This is the ghost of you
Haunting the ghost of me
We’re playing house in these walls forever
Tell me who’s scared now

Can’t we get an alternate ending?
Can’t we get an alternate ending?
Ohhh…

Somehow we will change everything that we touch
But we held on too tight and changed it too much
We sweep up this love, put the pieces back together
And if we find them all can we bring this to life?

Our life won’t wait for us to live
We don’t need a lifetime to figure out what we missed
The love we get is the love we give
A money chest full of love but we hid the key

This is the ghost of you
Haunting the ghost of me
Lonely in a crowded room together
Tell me who’s scared now

This is the ghost of you
Haunting the ghost of me
We’re playing house in these walls forever
Tell me who’s scared now

Ohhh….

This is the ghost of you
Haunting the ghost of me
Lonely in a crowded room together
Tell me who’s scared now

This is the ghost of you
Haunting the ghost of me
We’re playing house in these walls forever
Tell me who’s scared now
