about

Haunting memories of past relationships. Tramping and stamping. Disrupting your life. Being taken out of your comfort zone. Pink elephants. Heffalumps and woozels. David Lynch.

lyrics

She was alone, until she joined the circus.
Wailing & moaning scaring people away.
They couldn't see her, but they could feel her thundering footsteps like a rumbling train.

In the big top, she'd avast & knock down all the masts.
Without supports, the tents collapsed, the crowds inside had to exit fast.

Eating all the peanuts, scattering the hay, the ghost of Ellie Phantom was there to stay. (X2)

Think you're on your own, but here she comes, here she comes again.
Not you're not alone, she's calling out, calling out you're name.
Think you're on your own, but here she comes, here she comes - again.

In the morning, in the day, there were prints no man could fake.
In the shadow, of her shade, no warmth would generate.

Eating all the peanuts, scattering the hay, the ghost of Ellie Phantom was there to stay. (X2)

Think you're on your own, but here she comes, here she comes again.
Not you're not alone, she's calling out, calling out you're name.
Think you're on your own, but here she comes, here, she, comes.

She would not do tricks, or give rides to the kids.
They could not predict, what she might do next.
As long as she appeared, to bring the people in.
This didn't mean a thing, because, she, made, them, rich.

Because she made them, 'cause she made them, 'cause she made them rich.
