A man in my shoes runs a light and all the papers lied tonight but falling over you is the news of the day angels fall like rain and love is all of heaven away
(chorus) inside you the time moves and she don't fade the ghost in you she don't fade inside you the time moves and she don't fade
A race is on i´m on your side and here in you my engines die i'm in a mood for you or running away stars come down in you and love you can´t give it away
Don´t you go it makes no sense when all your talk and supermen just take away the time and get in the way Ain´t it just like rain and love is only heaven away

This is a song that can be interpreted many ways it seems. When I first heard it, I thought it was a love song. Admittedly, I did not know all the lyrics, and still question some of them now.
I love "furrealgirl"'s interpretation too, but it seems from my recent experience, this song means this...
A man in my shoes runs a light = Guy discovered there was another lover competing for her All the papers lied tonight = All the love letters were a lie But falling over you is the news of the day = re-iterating the surprise he felt that someone else loved her
Angels fall like rain = Love from her was "heaven", now it's gone, so angels fall... love is all of heaven away = heaven was love, and so now love seems so far away...
inside you the time moves and she don't fade = we find that he is thinking of the past... time has passed (moved on), but her memory is still there the ghost in you she don't fade = once again, the memories don't fade
the race is on i'm on your side = back then he was competing for her...just like the first line of "runs a light"...competition for her...racing for her... hearing you my engines die = he drops everything whenever he hears from her i'm in a mood for you = he loves her or... (for/or..i think "or") running away = ...or wants to run away from the pain...notice how he says this a little sadly...like he feels sad that a love can hurt so much when it's not returned, so you want to run away....
stars come down in you = since there is no "heaven", even the stars fall, but she still looked heavenly love you can't give it away = but she still won't give him love
don't you go it makes no sense = pleading : don't leave me
when all your "talk of supermen" just take away the time = talking about guys better him just takes away time from me trying to win you back OR when all your "talking supermen" just take away the time = other so called "better" guys competing for her takes away time from him trying to win her back
and get in the way = notice how he says this...like he's been pleading for her to come back, but then says this line like he just now realizes at that moment that he has no hope no matter what he says...
ain't it just like rain = so he cries, tears cuz he realizes there is no hope love is only heaven away = love for her was heaven, now it's not there and so love is far away....
So this is a song of a guy reminiscing of a failed love, and the spirit of what he loved in her will not go away....

I believe he says "or running away" because in the previous line he says "for"...as in "I'm in a mood for you"...and clearly the "f" is enunciated there...but there's barely a hint of an "f" sound in the following "or running away" verse...
I think you nailed it!
"Vickun" thank you for the complement. I agree that there can be more than one interpretation, but now I your explanation better. :)
Yeah, you pretty much nailed it. Thanks for your thoughtful analysis. He's so sad!
@vickun <br /> I think this is way off the mark, and you lost me at your interpretation of the first line. <br /> He's a risk taker, passionate, follows his heart, runs a red light...<br /> <br /> All the papers lied tonight is about the daily news. The daily news today and every day are that he has fallen in love with her.<br /> <br /> See what I mean? <br /> <br /> Not even close.
I think he's talking about her spirit or soul, which indeed wouldn't fade at all.

I don't see this beautifully poetic song as a love song, but as a deep song about loss and time passing. It seems to be about somebody who has died or become unreachable.
Referring to the daily news, he indicates that falling over someone, possibly reading about her in the papers, is his news. This point suggests an unexpected encounter with somebody that prompted poetic feelings. Angels fall like rain, and love is unreachable. Perhaps, an old friend has died.
Time within her (us) moves, but the ghost within her (us) doesn't fade.
He's on the side of someone, but it also takes him down, making him ambivalent between her or running away. She's somebody special, but love . . . he can't even give it away.
He's not going to something, and urging somebody not to go, possibly to a funeral, because the talk and supermen waste time and get in the way of truth. Tears, perhaps, are like rain, and love is only heaven away.
The girl he talks about gave him a great relationship and feelings that are too good to be true, but then she left him and he can't move on
I'm just going on a whim here, but I think it's about a girl he used to love, she might be dead or alive, and the thought of her won't "fade."
The race might be time trying to take those feelings away from him but he'll always be "on her side."
Those supermen could be other men trying to woo her away and just getting in the way.
Anyway, those are my thoughts. Amazing song by the Furs. Love their stuff.

@nikkopotamus This is pretty much how I read it: A ong-ago love that lingers in his heart and that distracts him. In his dustraction, he runs a light. A couple of later lines fit my theme, and a bunch don't. Hey, that's poetry! And really, who understands poetry?
@nikkopotamus This is pretty much how I read it: A ong-ago love that lingers in his heart and that distracts him. In his distraction/rumination/daydreaming of the past, he runs a light. Maybe the papers lying = the present moment of real life is meaningless ehrn you're hooked by the past. A couple of later lines fit my theme, and a bunch don't. Hey, that's poetry! And really, who understands poetry? We bring to art what fits our personal stories.
pure and simple - it's a love song.
A beautiful song.
They lyrics as they're stated today are wrong. I've submitted a correction.
Plain and simple, as many of you have stated, this song is about having been in love with someone who never leaves your memory.. "She's living in you" -
This song was so prophetic on a personal level in my personal life that part of the lyrics were incorporated into a tattoo i created, about the love of my life .. from 30 years ago. She still remains my angel that is 'all of heaven away'.
Wow. Would love to see a picture of that tattoo! Thanks for your comment. I love this song!
@Ritzytrailer Agreed. One if the suckiest parts of life, for sure.
Alright, the Furs are awesome and "The Ghost In You" is a great but seemingly mysterious song. This seems like a sad song with a sort of happy rhythm describing matters of the heart. It has always struck a chord of melancholy.... someone's at a loss regarding something... here's my interpreted opinion.
He still cares for her greatly (still loves her, still misses her). At any given opportunity his mind can drift into that place where she remains sewn into his heart and memories. The thought of her loss can suddenly and physically create tears in his heart and mind. He may block out the loss occasionally by staying busy but when his mind is at idol it's a downward spiral of his soulmate lost for good. The relentless thought of her creates a mountain of regret and sadness in his heart. He knows they had a super strong love but that he somehow the true love was lost, somewhere along their way. Though that love now seems forever far from his reach, and he cannot understand it, he just wants to know that they will both end up alright.
A man in my shoes runs a light A MAN (LIKE ME OR ANY OTHER MAN) RUNS A LIGHT And all the papers lied tonight THE DAILY NEWS IS ALL HYPE & LIES But falling over you BUT THE CONSTANT THOUGHT OF YOU Is the news of the day IS MY REAL STRUGGLE EVERYDAY Angels fall like rain SINCEREST TEARS OF LOSING YOU STREAM And love is all of heaven away AS MY ENDEARING LOVE FOR YOU SEEMS FAR BEYOND REACH
Inside you the time moves And she don't fade The ghost in you She don't fade Inside you the time moves And she don't fade TIME MOVES FORWARD EVERYDAY AS MY LOVE FOR YOU NEVER FADES LIKE A GHOST I CAN ONLY WISH FOR YOU STILL AS MY SINCERE LOVE FOR YOU DOESN’T FADE.
A race is on I'm on your side TIME KEEPS PASSING AS I STILL WANT TO BE BY YOUR SIDE And hearing you my engines die FOR YOU REMAIN SEWN TO MY HEART AND IT’S BROKEN WITHOUT YOU I'm in a mood for you I’VE GOT YOU ON MY MIND AGAIN For running away LIKE A DOWNWARD SPIRAL THAT WON’T GO AWAY stars come down in you HOPES OF BEING WITH YOU FADE And love, you can't give it away THIS LOVE THAT WON’T QUIT…I STILL CAN’T GIVE IT TO YOU.
Don't you go WHY’D YOU END THIS LOVE It makes no sense I WISH I COULD FIGURE IT OUT When all your talking supermen SEEMS EXCHANGED EXPRESSIONS OF FOREVER LOVERS Just take away the time WERE JUST A WASTE OF TIME And get in the way AN MEAN NOTHING ANYMORE Ain't it just like rain MAYBE IT’S JUST AS WELL And love, is only heaven away MAYBE LOVE WILL COME AGAIN ONE DAY
Inside you the time moves And she don't fade The ghost in you She don't fade TIME MOVES FORWARD EVERYDAY AS MY LOVE FOR YOU NEVER FADES LIKE A GHOST I CAN ONLY WISH FOR YOU STILL AS MY SINCERE LOVE FOR YOU DOESN’T FADE.
Inside you the time moves And she don't fade The ghost in you She don't fade TIME MOVES FORWARD EVERYDAY AS MY LOVE FOR YOU NEVER FADES LIKE A GHOST I CAN ONLY WISH FOR YOU STILL AS MY STRONG AND SINCERE LOVE FOR YOU DOESN’T FADE.
The song is allegorical....running a light and lying papers= he's well known if only among friends and acquaintances, and he's got a GF (or BF, I'll go girl just for simplicity)...he did what guys do sometimes...he hung out with another girl because he was interested intellectually or just found her fun to be with...no sex...and his "friends" gossiped, got back to the GF. The papers lied. People like to bring people on the upswing down a notch, angels falling like rain. I'm guessing the ghost is her soul, a good soul, what attracted him to her to begin with, "I won't judge you if you don't judge me." She threatens to go, the gossipers, talking supermen, interfere. Man, ain't we all been there. .It's a beautiful song, underappreciated, exquisite melody. Saw them in ft Lauderdale once, sat in front row, great performance, the sound was so loud it damaged my hearing, I've had tinnitus ever since.

The Psychedelic Furs – “The Ghost in You” Lyrics Meaning
Joanna holds a BSc in English Literature and uses her expertise in literary analysis to uncover the deeper meaning of her favorite songs.
“The Ghost in You” by The Psychedelic Furs is a hauntingly beautiful song that dives deep into the realm of love, memories, and the lingering presence of someone significant. With its evocative imagery, the song captures the essence of how some connections are so profound they feel eternal. The central message revolves around the idea that true love, like a ghost, remains constant, echoing throughout time and space, never truly fading. The track beautifully encapsulates this sentiment, suggesting that even though moments pass, genuine feelings remain untouched.
Are you ready to explore the timeless lyrics of this iconic song? I’ll be your guide.
“The Ghost in You” Lyrics Meaning
Beginning with “A man in my shoes runs a light, And all the papers lied tonight,” the song sets a mysterious tone. The lines suggest a desperate desire to escape or chase something, perhaps moments or feelings lost in time.
The chorus, “Angels fall like rain, And love is all of heaven away,” beautifully ties the celestial and earthly realms. Angels, symbolic of purity and beauty, falling might depict fleeting moments or transient love. Yet, love remains ever so elusive, almost as distant as heaven.
The repetitive line “Inside you the time moves, And she don’t fade” seems to be the crux of the song. It alludes to the memories of a significant other who remains untouched by the ravages of time. While the world outside changes, inside the heart, true love persists, immune to the passage of time.
The verses, “A race is on I’m on your side, And hearing you my engines die” hint at a supportive, unwavering connection. It’s as if time stands still when the person in question is near.
The line “Don’t you go, It makes no sense, When all your talking supermen” can be interpreted as a plea, highlighting the uniqueness and unmatched nature of their bond. Even supermen, with all their strength and heroics, pale in comparison to the impact of this particular relationship.
Closing out with the image of rain and love being “only heaven away,” the lyrics blend the ethereal with the tangible. Rain can cleanse, renew, and also brings life; in the same way, love has the power to transform.
The Story Behind “The Ghost in You”
When The Psychedelic Furs released “The Ghost in You,” they were in an era where they were transitioning from their early post-punk sounds to a more polished, mainstream-friendly sound. This particular track, from their 1984 album “Mirror Moves,” is a testament to their evolving artistry and a shift towards more emotive and relatable lyrics.
Richard Butler, the band’s frontman, has always been known for his poetic, often cryptic lyrics. In the case of “The Ghost in You,” it’s likely a personal exploration of love, loss, and the haunting presence of someone who’s left an indelible mark on his life. The song might not detail a specific individual, but rather, the universal feeling of longing and the timeless nature of love.
In the 80s, music videos started playing a huge role in connecting audiences with the meaning behind songs. The video for this song is shrouded in mist and mystery, mirroring the ethereal vibes of the track. The visuals, combined with the lyrics, created an ambiance of nostalgia, urging listeners to reflect on their own memories and emotions.
In summary, “The Ghost in You” stands as an ode to timeless love, showcasing the band’s versatility and Butler’s poetic prowess.

The Ghost In You
A man in my shoes runs a light And all the papers lied tonight But falling over you Is the news of the day
Angels fall like rain And love Is all of heaven away
Inside you the time moves And she don't fade The ghost in you She don't fade Inside you the time moves And she don't fade
A race is on I'm on your side And hearing you my engines die I'm in a mood for you For running away
Stars come down in you And love You can't give it away
Don't you go It makes no sense When all your talking supermen Just take away the time And get in the way
Ain't it just like rain And love Is only heaven away
