Speaking on the track, Walsh comments, "‘The Ghost In Me’ is a plaintive acoustic song about those times in life when nothing works to comfort somebody no matter how hard you try but then the restorative power of a new day does the trick. Its also about keeping your own melancholy at bay when you need to be there for someone else. Sometimes new songs take a while take a while to embed themselves into the live set but this one has found its place pretty quickly & has been really well received on its live outings.”
