INTRO
            C                       E
There's a ghost in my bedroom, it haunts me at night
       Am           G            F/A
I've asked him to leave, but he keeps stopping by
 Dm                          G
Just when I think that I'm alone
     C        E             F/A
It shows up again with a friend this time
         Dm              G
And now this is getting old
                     C-Am
I don't know what to do
F/A         G                  C
Metaphorically, this ghost is you.
 
           C                      E
Now this ghost in my bedroom he gives me advice
     Am          G             F/A
He promised one day that he'd teach me to fight 
Dm                          G
Now when I think that I'm alone
    C        E              Am
He comes up my way with a devil smile 
         F/A            G
Singing this is now my home 
                 C        Am
You're my wish come true 
          F/A                E             G         C
When you reach that golden cloud I'll be there with you
 
                 F/A              C
If there were monsters in the closet 
               E                    Am
Well I don't think I would be surprised
             F/A                C
I hear them call out from my window
               E                 G
They try and trick me to come outside
 
(I won't let you down)
     G         C
We talked all day
              E                F/A                     C
I can't tell if he's real or a made up version of her again 
  G     C                      E
Never alone, because I've got you
                    Am
Get this out of my head
 
 
GUITAR SOLO
             G           F/A
No I won't waste away my love
                 C
On to something new
            F/A          G
If there's only one way out
                    C
I'll come back for you
 
          F/A              C
If I get stuck out there forever
        E                   Am     G
Tell everyone that I said goodbye
               F/A             C
You're on my lifelong list of wishes
             E
If I could bring you back 
F/A                   C
We don't belong here now
                             E                      Am
If he stays well that just means I've got numbered days
          F/A                Am
Til I go back to my little world
                G                     C
Where it's just me and my imaginary friends
 
C
So go out and love
        Am
Find a new direction
 
(Here's my heart, keep it for protection)
            E            Am
Don't get stuck on your way
           F/A            C
The other side's a scary place
                          Am
(Do your best not to be afraid)
                         Am
Lose it all when we run away
                            F/A
(Letting go of the little things you know I do)
            C
There's a ghost in my bedroom
            E
(And he's dying to meet you)
                 Am
God knows he's heard all about you
               F/A
I guess he's friendly enough
                      C
Though I've seen him lie
               Am
(He's seeking roses in your bed)
                       F/A
Says he won't let you down
 
He will! He will! He will!
 
           C                    Am F/A
There's a ghost in my bedroom
 
(He will! He will! He will!
 
Will the crowd go crashing down?)
 
                              Am
Slowly slowly how could I go down
                 F/A
I want you to notice when I let go
 
C                             Am
Slowly slowly how could I go down?
                F/A
I want you to notice when I let go
 
(There's a ghost in my bedroom)
