You've Haunted Me All My Life Lyrics

You've haunted me all my life
Through endless days and countless nights
There was a storm when I was just a kid
Stripped the last code of innocence

You've haunted me all my life
You're always out of reach when I'm in pursuit
Long winded then suddenly mute
And there's a flaw in my heart's design
For I keep trying to make you mine

You've haunted me all my life
You've haunted me all my life
You are the mistress I can't make a wife
And you've haunted me all my life

And so I wait but I never seem to learn
How to capture your diminishing returns
I still see you through the eyes of a child
Not even thinking we could tame the wild

You've haunted me all my life
You've haunted me all my life
You are the mistress I can't make a wife
And you've haunted me all my life

You've haunted me all my life
You've haunted me all my life
You are the mistress I can't make a wife
And you've haunted me all my life

1 Thoughts & Meanings

I have read a lot about the meaning of this song having something to do with romantic relationships. I don’t think that is correct. Mr. Gibbard is an artist. I believe that this song is about his relationship with music. Personally, I think that Ben’s relationship with music is much better than he portrays in the song, but I understand the frustration.
