Ella Henderson






I keep going to the river to pray
'Cause I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most I'm sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Verse 1
My friends had you figured out
Yeah, they saw what's inside of you
You tried hiding another you
But your evil was coming through

These eyes sitting on the wall
They watch every move I make
Bright light living in the shade
Your cold heart makes my spirit shake, ooo

I had to go through hell to prove I'm not insane
Had to meet the devil just to know his name and that's when my love was burning
Yeah, it's still burning

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Verse 2
Each time that I think you're gone
I turn around and you're creeping in
And I let you under my skin
Guess I love living in the sin

Oh you never told me
True love was gonna hurt
True pain I don't deserve
Truth is that I never learn

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Give up the ghost, give up the ghost, give up the ghost
Stop the haunting baby

Give up the ghost, give up the ghost, give up the ghost
No more haunting baby

Repeat Chorus (x2)
