Ariana Grande ‘Ghostin’ Lyrics—Is ‘Ghostin’ About Mac Miller?

Is Ariana Grande‘s “Ghostin” about Mac Miller? Fans believe the pop star’s new song might be about her late ex.

The singer just dropped her fifth studio album thank u, next—and as always, fans are decoding every single song. They’ve found some heartbreaking evidence to suggest that the lyrics in “Ghostin” are about both Miller and Pete Davidson, who Grande broke up with in October.

In January, Grande tweeted that the song’s meaning is “feeling badly for the person you’re with bc you love somebody else. feeling badly bc he can tell he can’t compare…. and how I should be ghosting him.” Now, after reading the lyrics, fans are even more certain the track is about how Grande dealt with Miller’s death while she was in a relationship with Davidson.

For starters, fans picked up on the fact that “Ghostin” sounds a lot like Miller’s song “2009.”

Then, in the chorus, she sings, “I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again / Over him, mmh / I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again / ‘Stead of ghostin’ him”. Here, she seemingly acknowledges how hard it must have been for Davidson to see her mourn her ex-boyfriend.

Grande also revealed that she often dreams about the late rapper: “He just comes to visit me / When I’m dreaming every now and then.” Fans have pointed out that the lyrics sound a lot like the ones featured in the track “Cinderella”—a song Miller wrote about Grande—in which he raps, “You in my dreams that’s why I sleep all the time.”

Below, check out the the full Ariana Grande “Ghostin” lyrics:

[Verse 1]

I know you hear me when I cry

I try to hold it in at night

While you’re sleeping next to me

But it’s your arms that I need this time (This time)

Look at the cards that we’ve been dealt

If you were anybody else

Probably wouldn’t last a day

Heavy tears, a rain parade from hell (From hell)

[Pre-Chorus]

Baby, you do it so well

You been so understanding, you been so good

And I’m puttin’ you through more than one ever should

And I’m hating myself ’cause you don’t want to

Admit that it hurts you

[Chorus]

I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again

Over him, mmh

I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again
‘Stead of ghostin’ him

[Post-Chorus]

We’ll get through this, we’ll get past this, I’m a girl with

A whole lot of baggage

But I love you, we’ll get past this, I’m a girl with

A whole lot of baggage, oh yeah

[Verse 2]

Though I wish he were here instead

Don’t want that living in your head

He just comes to visit me

When I’m dreaming every now and then (And then)

And after all that we been through (And after all that we been through)

There’s so much to look forward to

What was done and what was said

Leave it all here in this bed with you (With you)

[Pre-Chorus]

Baby, you do it so well

You been so understanding, you been so good

And I’m puttin’ you through more than one ever should

And I’m hating myself ’cause you don’t want to

Admit that it hurts you, baby

[Chorus]

I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again

Over him, mmh

I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again
‘Stead of ghostin’ him

[Post-Chorus]

We’ll get through this, we’ll get past this, I’m a girl with (Girl with)

A whole lot of baggage

But I love you (Love you), we’ll get past this (Past this)

I’m a girl with a whole lot of baggage, yeah yeah
