Mckenna Grace - Haunted House
'Ghostbusters: Afterlife' star Mckenna Grace has premiered the music video for her debut single, 'Haunted House', which features in the movie's soundtrack.

If you've seen 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife', then you might have noticed that 15-year-old Mckenna's name appears twice in the end credits. Of course she plays Phoebe, granddaughter of Egon Spengler in the reboot of the supernatural comedy franchise.

But the teen star, who clearly has unbounded talent, is also credited as the writer and performer of a song called 'Haunted House', which plays during the movie's credits and serve' as Mckenna's musical debut.

The 2021 Jason Reitman film revolves around Phoebe, as it is her journey of discovery as she uncovers the forgotten legacy of her grandfather. Mckenna has some great lines in the film, which are delivered in the same deadpan style as Egon in the original movies.

To tie in with the movie's release, Mckenna has released her debut single, 'Haunted House', complete with a fitting music video and the catchy chorus "a ghost never leaves a haunted house."

Speaking about the song to ET, Mckenna said, "over the pandemic, I went through a rough time in my personal life, and I wanted to write a song about how even after someone’s not in your life anymore, their memory never really leaves you." She added, "you could take it as a breakup song, but it could also be about a friend or a family member or any kind of relationship that’s ended."

'Haunted House' Lyrics

You walk out the door
Then you want back in
The second that it's cold outside
And you see I've got something to give
And I'd give it to you
100 times over
Till you screwed me over
Just like the last time
Sayin' it was the last time
I paid the price
Staying alone in my room
After what happened in June
Thinking I really loved you
And maybe I still do
But I think you're honestly something I needed to lose

I know it's not healthy
It doesn't help me
But I do it anyways
Looking at photos
Reading the letters
That you gave me
I could never throw them out
Cause, a ghost never leaves a haunted house
AaA AaA (sounds) AaA
A ghost never leaves a haunted house

I get reminiscent OOOOOh
When somebody says ur name
Almost glad I miss it OOOOOh
Cause it's better than not feeling a single thing
Even after all the white lies
Empty goodbyes
All the tears
And all the times
You weren't there when I needed you to be
Hoping you're right where u wanna be
Even if it's not with me

I know it's not healthy
It doesn't help me
But I do it anyways
Looking at photos
Reading the letters
That you gave me
I could never throw them out
Cause a ghost never leaves a haunted house

We were living then but we die now
The silence used to be so loud
So glad that I can hear my sound
Cause a ghost never leaves a haunted house
Think we’re on our final scene
Keep us good in all our memories
So I don't have to throw them out
A ghost never leaves a haunted house
