Benson Boone is een uit de Verenigde Staten afkomstige singer-songwriter. Hij nam deel aan de auditie van American Idol in 2021. De jury was lovend en hij mocht door naar de volgende ronde. Echter besloot Boone de show te verlaten. Een reden is hiervoor nooit gegeven en er volgde verschillende speculaties. Zijn TikTok account had in oktober al meer dan 1,7 miljoen volgers.

Hij tekende vervolgens een platencontract bij Night Street Records, het label van Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds. De ballad Ghost Town is een van zijn eerste liedjes die hij schreef en op single uitbracht.



Songtekst

You fill me up till you're empty
I took too much and you let me
We've been down all these roads before
And what we found don't live there anymore

It's dark
It's cold
If my hand is not the one you're meant to hold

Maybe you'd be happier
With someone else
Maybe loving me's the reason
You can't love yourself
Before I turn your heart
Into a ghost town
Show me everything we've built
So I can tear it all down
Down
Down, down, down

You know I'll stay, don't you tempt me
But all this weight is getting heavy
Been holding up what wasn't meant to stand
I turned this love into a wasteland

It's dark
It's cold
If my hand is not the one you're meant to hold

Maybe you'd be happier
With someone else
Maybe loving me's the reason
You can't love yourself
Before I turn your heart
Into a ghost town
Show me everything we've built
So I can tear it all down
Down
Down, down, down
Tear it all down
Down
Down, down, down

The streets are empty
Where love once was, but it's faded away
These broken memories
I'm left here alone and afraid to say
Maybe you'd be happier with someone else
Oh

Maybe you'd be happier
With someone else
Maybe loving me's the reason
You can't love yourself
Before I turn your heart
Into a ghost town
Show me everything we've built
So I can tear it all down
Down
Down, down, down
Tear it all down
Down
Down, down, down

I'll tear it all down
I'll tear it all down
