  • Ghost Stories follows a narrative of a man tormented by the departure of his lover following a dramatic breakup. This piano ballad finds a lonely Chris Martin reminiscing about memories of shared company as he watches late night TV on his own. "Wish that your arms were around me. My body on your body," he concludes.
  • The song features a vocal sample from the contemporary folk singer-songwriter Jane Weaver's track "Silver Chord."
