“Ghosttown” is a song that’s frequently on repeat right now.  It just resonates with me.

According to Madonna, during the Rolling Stone interview, “Ghosttown” is a song that “is kind of looking at the world in a way, seeing civilization collapse around us, for lack of a better word. And at the end of the day, if we run out of oil and we don’t have electricity and we don’t have all the modern conveniences, and we have no phones and computers, all we’re going to have is each other, is humans. And that song’s about recognizing that.”

To me, “Ghosttown” translates as a song of incredible support and encouragement.

Here are some of the lyrics courtesy of directlyrics.com:

I know we’re alright
‘Cause we’ll never be alone
In this mad, mad; in this mad, mad world
Even with no light
We’re gonna shine like gold
In this mad mad, in this mad mad world

When it all falls, when it all falls down
I’ll be your fire when the lights go out
When there’s no one, no one else around
We’ll be two souls in a ghost town

When the world gets cold
I’ll be your cover
Let’s just hold
Onto each other
When it all falls, when it all falls down
We’ll be two souls in a ghost town
