Lyrics for The Pink Phantom (feat. Elton John and 6LACK) by Gorillaz:

Verse 1: 2-D
You've more or less forgotten me this summer
I can’t hide my disappointment
I was on my way in the phantom five
The one you gave away

Verse 2: 6LACK & 2-D
Try to tell you that I love you but I'm choked up
You forgot and that makes me feel like no one (Some times)
Were you even really there? Did you ever really care?
Wait, I got so many examples of all of the good times we had
Long summer nights (Summer nights), held you long time
Put your name in my rhyme, refresh your memory
Of where you want to be, the phantom's on the way
She’s comin' down the street

Chorus: Elton John
I tried to get to Atlanta
On a peach blossom highway
I'm tryin' to put these puzzles out of mind
In a sky made of diamonds
Where the world fell silent
I'll be waiting for you on the other side

Break: 2-D
Summer lights (Everyday, everyday)
Sometimes (Ride where the summer goes)
Summer nights
Every night
Summer nights

Chorus: Elton John & 2-D
I tried to say I love you
But you didn't listen (Sometimes)
Tried to give you everything you might need (Summer nights)
In a sky made of diamonds
And where the world is flawless
I'll be waiting for you on the other side

Break: 2-D
Summer lights, summer lights
Hold it in for a long time
Summer lights, seems to me I'm in a dream
Oh, these summer lights

Outro: Elton John, 6LACK & 2-D
The phantom is coming
You forgot and that makes me feel like no one
She’s crossing over the line
Wait, I got so many examples of all of the good times we had
Seems to me I’m in a dream (Long summer nights, held you long time
Put your name in my rhyme, refresh your memory)
And I have these summer nights (of where you want to be, the phantom's on the way
She’s comin' down the street)
Sometimes

Song Facts

The eighth single from Gorillaz' Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez details a failed relationship. The lyrics talk about how the protagonist showered the one they loved with gifts and affection, but the love interest leaves them and breaks their heart. The protagonist does everything to get away from this heartache, but they sometimes still see this person; hence the lyrics “the phantom’s on the way” and “the phantom is coming”. These lyrics can also be interpreted as death coming for the main character (MC) since some of the lyrical passages can be interpreted as the MC wanting to commit suicide because of the emotional pain they are in.
