Tallest Man On Earth, The - Same Ghost Lyrics

On certain nights
The ringing in my ears
Louder than the rustle of leaves

Along the path
But who am I to scare
And who are you to follow out here?

Deep in the mile I will walk for you
Deep in the lines of our summer
I see the clouds and they seem so young
What wicked mind did set their trails
Were they the ones that got away?

The longest train
That I ever saw
But what is in a ticket to move?

Could beauty lie
In my place of fear
Run and the horizon will too

Deep in the mile I will walk for you
Deep in the lines of our summer
I see the clouds and they seem so young
What wicked mind did set their trail
Were they the ones that got away?

You might as well be on my shoulders, I suppose
I can pretend I do not see you, and so it goes
We can talk about just where the clouds are from

  7. Heather Lewerenz

    I wonder if “the longest train” is a reference to J.E. Mainer’s mountaineers

  8. Conniption 86

  12. Martin Blais

    Would someone be kind enough to release a tutorial on how to play this song pleasseee?

  13. Sam Anaruk III

    It's been over a year, I still come back to this video. It's a beautiful and precious thing you've made here. Love.

  14. Lucas Beck

    i‘ve been listening to this song an entire year now, since then, when my unborn child died, i find comfort in the beauty and depth that lies in it. it converted sadness into melancholia, melancholia into serenity and then into happiness. your songs are full of authentic, understanding love. they showed me that even if something really bad happens you can still find a way out, if you’re honest and humble with life. thank you kristian for giving me that gift!

  15. Peter Davis

    optimistic melancholy is ma jam

  16. PostinReviews

    It's a late summer night just sitting with a sad friend listening to his troubles and put on this song. Kristian I just would like to thank you for all the beauty you've been sending us in the years. You inspire me everyday. Thank you from the deep of my heart

    Same Ghosts is possible the most beautiful song i've heard in a long time. Why does it have to end?

  20. James Stonley

    This was uploaded on my birthday. The perfect birthday present.

  21. Sam Young

    I know he writes most of his songs on guitar, and they're all amazing, but for some reason (and maybe cause I play piano myself) the songs he writes on piano affect me in a special way

  22. Saturn

    Still remember your show in Sg. Standing alone on the stage and gave us beautiful moment. You such talented guy. I miss the feeling.

  38. Randy H.

    If I ever find my mind in a weird place, I listen to the first 50 seconds of this video. That seems to clear things up for me.

    If anything has ever made me feel deeply, it was this. Don't know why, it just did.

  39. Alex Uriati

    Holy shit that piano intro!

  40. Michael Vedeler

    Utrolig fin intro!! Lurer sykt på hva akkordene er?

  41. mindxcircus

    One of the most beautiful song I've heard for a while. Touched by simple and sincere beauty of the lyrics too..

  42. mindxcircus

    Everytime I visit your new The Light in Demos videos, a whole new bubble just wraps me up, making me feel safe while I indulge in a moment of clarity and serenity for a moment.. They are inspirational and calming, Kristian. Big love from me! Keep it up!

  43. SidMcgnarly3

    That intro piano sequence is almost better than the song itself.

  59. Gonzalo Piedra

  60. Katra Petricek

    We need more grains of sand like you, to make us (other grains of sands) feel. To encourage us to express, to live, to love. Thank you for sharing your life, your music. Thank you so much for creating your music, it really does transcend.

  61. emma pinkley

  62. Maureen Ochs

    Sooo so beautiful!

  63. Manuela Fuchs

    Dear Kristian,
    Thank you so much for lighten up my day each time.

  64. PedroMO7U

    I've been away for a week. I was in a music festival: six days of loud songs, pasta and heavy stuff (ya know). Came back home after two hours of sleep and found the mess that used to be my room. We're changing some things from one room to my bedroom. Shelves full of toys and other memorabilia, books pilled in my speaker, guitars in every corner and my router is acting weird so, the Internet connection has been a bit dodgy sometimes. Only now did I find the time to relax and experience being one of the tallest men on earth for almost 5 minutes.

  65. Fabiana Hdez

    How to stand so much beauty in these videos... I don't know how to manage it. Your music is like the calm on a nice night out there in the dark nothingness and the everything. I love it, thank you.

  66. HeadstockFilms

    Don't ever stop being an artist, the world is a better place with you.

  67. deadzepplin

    Thank you for the music

  68. Ghostbrush

  70. Taylor Black

    Jesus you are one beautiful human being.

  71. Susan Coleman

    Kristian, can you feel how much you are loved, I hope you know, and that it means something to you.

  72. Elim Garak

    naked on a trampoline?

  73. lostforwords6

    These videos are just perfect. Every angle and shot so thoughtfully done. The music is just wonderful. I just find myself absolutely silent, staring at them when very few things on the internet ever warrant that sort of reaction.

    Keep them coming and make a dvd of all these at some point, so we can all keep them forever.

  74. sparky123hehe

    Beautiful. there were tears..

  75. Kimmocheck

    Thank you so much for these videos. They are a big light in this small world.

  76. DaCabbageCutta

    Not sure if we have any affect in expressing your usefulness to us in a way that impacts you! but you truly have a way
    of touching and inspiring a primal moral instinct to simplify what is real in life and to keep striving to see yourself!
    Love this new direction! Thanks for sharing yourself with us!

  77. Jacob T. Rex

    I think I need to sit by the water and think for a bit

    Last year, the beautiful project of songs/videos “Island Songs” by Olafur Arnalds made my month of august special. This year, this project by The Tallest Man on Earth will certainly be the soundtrack to the end of my summer. I listen to it while I look through the window, the summer season slowly starting to fade away here in Canada. Soon the autumn will come. I listen to it while thinking about the girl I secretly have a crush on right now, dreaming of just lying in the grass with her somewhere, talk and get to know her better. All these feelings come together with the feelings of the songs and the videos, and it makes me feel good. If by chance you happen to read this, Kristian, thank you: sometimes we wonder if we make a difference in the world... well your songs and videos truly makes a difference in my life. (p.-s. English is not my first language, so maybe I made some mistakes in my choice of words)

    Ludovic U. Tourigny

    Simon Ami québécois fan de Kristan?

  94. ibanez456189

    Thank you, these are amazing!!!

  95. Galen Winsor

  96. Will Anderson

    Will Anderson i have to process this statement

    Randy H.

    Damn... you're right.

    Joseph Rowley

    Exactly. Don’t settle for less.

  97. Chris Leggat

    He would make a good Joker replacement. Theres this thing about his voice.
