Lyrics & Listen: ‘Ghost Story’ By Carrie Underwood

By  | 

“Ghost Story” by Carrie Underwood marks a new era for the American Idol alum.

The country superstar released the song on March 18. The track was written by Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey, and David Garcia. It was co-produced by David Garcia and Carrie Underwood. The song is a unique take on a revenge song, haunting an ex who did her wrong.

“I feel like they just nailed it when they got together to write,” Underwood said of the songwriting trio. “I’ve worked with all those incredibly talented writers a couple of which, I’ve worked with since pretty much the very beginning. I feel like they just know me so well.”

Carrie Underwood “Ghost Story” lyrics:

You’re gonna see a shadow
Midnight playing tricks with your head
A silhouette float down the hallway
And you’ll reach for the light by your bed
You’ll hear a noise, swear you know the voice
And you’ll chase it down the stairs
You’ll look around, not a single sound
‘Cause there’s no one even there

I’m gonna be your ghost story
That keeping you up all night memory
I’ll be haunting you, you’ll be wanting me
I’m gonna be your ghost story
Your ghost story
Your ghost story

You’ll be sitting at home drinking ‘bout me
When I’m out with my friends at the bar
But there ain’t enough whiskey
For you not to miss me
I’ll be waiting at the bottom of the bottle in the dark

I’m gonna be your ghost story
That keeping you up all night memory
I’ll be haunting you, you’ll be wanting me
I’m gonna be your ghost story
Your ghost story, yeah
Your ghost story

Ooh, you’ll wish you’d never said goodbye
Wish you’d never let me go
Let the love between us die
You can carve it into stone

I’m gonna be your ghost story
That keeping you up all night memory
I’ll be haunting you, you’ll be wanting me
I’m gonna be your ghost story

Your ghost story, yeah, yeah
Your ghost story, yeah, yeah
I’ll be haunting you, you’ll be wanting me
I’m gonna be your ghost story
Your ghost story
