“Ghosting can leave behind lasting trauma or a lingering sense of insecurity for those who’ve experienced it. That’s where I focused the song – it’s like a ghost, you can sometimes feel it looming, that fear of being ghosted. In the end, when they’ve left you, or when you’ve been ghosted, there’s nothing left but the pain,” Daniel explained.
