    It means she's from somewhere else.
    Andi, "she is elsewhere/somewhere else" would be "elle est ailleurs"


    I don't know the song, but it means "she is elsewhere/somewhere else." That's the literal translation, at least. If there's some deep poetic meaning, you'll have to wait for another answerer:)
