Ella Henderson Cry Like A Woman

I couldn’t help but take the pain

Believe you when you run away

I don’t know what to do

All I want is that piece of my heart, back from you

No, I don’t care what you tell me

If you really love me

Then love me and just let me go

And let me cry like a woman

Cry like a woman

No, I don’t care what you tell me

If you really know me

Then you know these tears ain’t for show

And let me cry like a woman

Cry like a woman

If I never had his kisses

Then I wouldn’t cry like a woman

Ooh, I feel like I wasted my time

How did I let myself go?

When I left my pride, right at the door

And I did it for you, baby, ooh

Believe you when you run away

Oh, I’m such a fool

All I want is that piece of my heart, back from you

No, I don’t care what you tell me

If you really love me

Then love me and just let me go

And let me cry like a woman

Cry like a woman

No, I don’t care what you tell me

If you really know me

Then you know these tears ain’t for show

And let me cry like a woman

Cry like a woman

If I never had his kisses

Then I wouldn’t cry like a woman

Just holding onto my heart, baby

You stole it right out my hand, yes you did

Then you took the smile off my face

I hope that makes you feel like a man, now

And my love, I need it back

Oh, give it back baby

What are you ever gonna need it for

No, I don’t care what you tell me

If you really love me

Then love me and just let me go

And let me cry like a woman

Cry like a woman

No, I don’t care what you tell me

If you really know me

Then you know these tears ain’t for show

And let me cry, oh, cry

If I never had his kisses

Then I wouldn’t cry like a woman

Ella Henderson Pieces

You say that it’s alright

Right when we live in pieces

But pieces fall apart

A part of you is missing

Mr Done With Thinking

I think we went too far

Now every time we talk we say a little less

And every time we kiss it ends up in a mess

You say that it’s alright

Right when we live in pieces

But pieces fall apart

The pieces of my heart

No you can’t fake love

Love ain’t a game you play

You played me from the start

It starts to end today

Today I’ve had enough

Enough to give you up

I’m up and out this place

A place where you can’t get me

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh

And when we started out

Out in those I Love You days

The days that seemed so bright

You brightened up inside

The side of you I loved

The love we had you crucified

Now every time you laugh

It seems to make me cry

And when we say the truth

We’re only telling lies

But when we started out

Out in those I Love You days

The days that seemed so bright

But I can’t make it right

No you can’t fake love

Love ain’t a game you play

You played me from the start

It starts to end today

Today I’ve had enough

Enough to give you up

I’m up and out this place

A place where you can’t get me

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh

So watch me run away now, way now

‘Cause now I’m gonna break out, break out

I’ll break into the place where I’m alive, and oh

Can’t fake love

Can’t fake love, no

No you can’t fake love

Love ain’t a game you play

You played me from the start

It starts to end today

Today I’ve had enough

Enough to give you up

I’m up and out this place

A place where you can’t get me

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh oh oh

Woah oh

You say that it’s alright

Right when we live in pieces

But pieces fall apart

Ella Henderson Giants

I know what it’s like to be feeling small

In a corner with your back up against the wall

Caught up in a trap and you can’t get out

I know what it is when it’s hard to breathe

‘Cause you turn into your own worst enemy

Blaming everything on yourself right now

And even the best get it wrong sometimes

We take a left when we should have turned right

Don’t let the fear keep you from climbing

And if you fall to the ground just keep trying

Head up in the clouds, never looking down

Nothing’s gonna stop us this time round

We could be giants, whoa, you and I

We could be giants, giants oh

You just walk on by when they criticise

Try to tear you apart with their dirty lies

They will never win, they don’t understand

That even the best get it wrong sometimes

So don’t live with regret or you’ll lose your mind, yeah

Don’t let the fear keep you from climbing

And if you fall to the ground just keep trying

Head up in the clouds, never looking down

Nothings gonna stop us this time round

We could be giants, whoa, you and I

We could be giants, giants oh

We stand tall like giants

We stand tall like giants

We stand tall like giants

We stand tall like giants

Don’t let the fear keep you from climbing

And if you fall to the ground just keep trying

Head up in the clouds, never looking down

Nothings gonna stop us this time round

We could be giants, whoa, you and I

We could be giants, giants

We stand tall like giants

We stand tall like giants

We stand tall like giants

We stand tall like giants

We stand tall like giants

Ella Henderson The First Time

Somebody told me they saw you with her

They even called out my name

Thinking I was that girl

She wears the same kind of make up

And the same colour hair

Well she’s a wannabe me

And she’s even got it down to the clothes I wear

So you can try to replace me

And start all over again

But what you just don’t understand

You had it right the first time

But you weren’t satisfied

I gave you all of me

So you had no reason to think twice

You had it right the first time

But you were so blind

‘Cause there’ll never be no better me to find

You had it right the first time

She can wear the same perfume

And she can hold your hand

Yeah she can make you smile but not the way I can

I hope she doesn’t get used to being so attached

‘Cause she will never be me, no

So it just won’t last

So you can try to upgrade me

Yeah you can dream like that

But you might as well face the fact

You had it right the first time

But you weren’t satisfied

I gave you all of me

So you had no reason to think twice

You had it right the first time

But you were so blind

‘Cause there’ll never be no better me to find

You can keep searching around

Thinking that we’re all the same

But I’ll always be the best you found

And that’s one thing that just won’t change

‘Cause there’ll never be no better me, oh no

No, there’ll never be no better me, oh no

You had it right the first time

But you weren’t satisfied

I gave you all of me

So you had no reason to think twice

You had it right the first time

But you were so blind

‘Cause there’ll never be no better me to find

No, ‘cause there’ll never be no better me to find

And now I gotta tell you

There’ll never be no better me to find

You had it right the first time

Ella Henderson 1996

At ten past three in the afternoon

In 1996 an eight pound baby arrived

That was me

I don’t know why I was brought to life

But I swear that I’m the luckiest girl alive

To be part of this family

And now I miss the times

When you’d hold my hand

When I’m crossing the road

You’d never let me fall

Until it was time for you to let me go

And who knows when you’re old and grey

Who you’re gonna grow up to be

But every day I love you more

You did it all for me

I met my best friend by the age of three

And she grew up watching episodes of Lizzie Maguire

With me, on TV

Oh we used to share our secrets didn’t care

About what we would say

Even when it got embarrassing

I let you in

And now I wanna go back

To when we’d dress up and we put on a magic show

And I’d boss you around

But you’d never frown, never wanted to go home

And who knows when we’re old and grey

Who we’re gonna grow up to be

But every day I love you more

You did it all for me

I won’t let these moments fade away

Its ‘cause of you I’m who I am today

Little Miss from ‘96

And how I miss the times when you’d hold my hand

When I’m crossing the road

You’d never let me fall

Until it was time for you to let me go

And who knows when you’re old and grey

Who you’re gonna grow up to be

But every day I love you more you did it all for me

And every day I love you more you did it all for me

Ella Henderson Five Tattoos

Tight jeans with a rip on the knee

So close but it ain’t where I wanna be

And I’m loving every minute of your company

But have I read this all wrong

Maybe I move too fast

Or maybe I missed the sign

But baby this could last

You are the one thing on my mind

You are my one and only

My blue skies and grey

You are the only one for me

Brown eyes with your old woolly hat

Five tattoos from your shoulder to your hands

You could give me what I have never had

Boy, keep leading me on

But maybe I move too fast

Or maybe I missed the sign

But baby this could last

You are the one thing on my mind

You are my one and only

My blue skies and grey

You are the only one for me

Tight jeans with a rip on the knee

Ella Henderson Now You Say You Love Me Again

I was the target, you were the weapon

What a big mistake

Out of the silence there you appear

And I suffocate

“Didn’t mean to ever hurt you”

You’d say with that look in your eye

I’ll just die inside

Started to wonder, where did the light go?

As we start to fade

Hearing the sirens in my head

I tell ’em go home

Gotta get this off of my chest

Round all your weapons, ready on the load

Now that you love me again

I’m ready for you, ready for the show

Where you play the part of pretend

So try hit me down, shoot to the ground

Aim for my heart and we fall apart

Round all your weapons

Now you’d say you love me again

You toss the bullet right in my eye line

What a risk you took

Say that you need me but I don’t believe it

Think my heart went numb

When you told me that you’re sorry

You’d say with that look in your eye

While I just die inside

And after the battle, thought it was over

But you won’t give up

Hearing the sirens in my head

I tell ’em go home

Gotta get this off of my chest

Round all your weapons, ready on the load

Now that you love me again

I’m ready for you, ready for the show

Where you play the part of pretend

So try hit me down, shoot to the ground

Aim for my heart and we fall apart

Round all your weapons

Now you’d say you love me again

Miss me, miss me

Never gonna kiss me again

Miss me, miss me

Never gonna kiss me again

Miss me, miss me

Never gonna kiss me again

(Never gonna kiss me)

Miss me, miss me

Never gonna kiss me again

Round all your weapons, ready on the load

Now that you love me again

I’m ready for you, ready for the show

Where you play the part of pretend

So try hit me down, shoot to the ground

Aim for my heart and we fall apart

Round all your weapons

Now you’d say you love me again

Ella Henderson Empire

(Build on love and we’ll…)

I see your light

I know it’s coming and I’m terrified

No more defences here to hide behind

Oh, just you and I

And through the smoke

I see you burning like a ray of hope

I found the fire now the ashes glow

Oh, I come alive

And now that I’m awake

I’m not afraid

I’m letting go tonight

‘Cause we found strength in each others’ arms

We built this love and we made it our

Empire, empire, empire

And you and I can rule each others’ hearts

We’ll build on love and we’ll make it our

Empire, empire, empire

Stone by stone

We’ll build a tower we can call our own

So high that we’ll forget the world below

Oh, just you and I, I

So let the drums roll

The cannons blow

We’re letting go tonight

‘Cause we found strength in each others’ arms

We built this love and we made it our

Empire, empire, empire

And you and I can rule each others’ hearts

We’ll build on love and we’ll make it our

Empire, empire, empire

They’ll never take it down

Take it down

Burn it down

Burn us down

Take it down

Take down our empire

They’ll never take it down

Take it down

Burn it down

Burn us down

Take it down

Take down our empire

‘Cause we found strength in each others’ arms

We built this love and we made it our

Empire, empire, empire

And you and I can rule each others’ hearts

We’ll build on love and we’ll make it our

Empire, empire, empire

They’ll never take it down

Take it down

Burn it down

Burn us down

Take it down

Take down our empire

Ella Henderson Solid Gold

Look around, what you see is solid gold

We’ve been told too many stories, that the writings on the wall

Feel my soul, feel my warm wicked thirst

Now, I’m free of all my troubles

And I’m shaking off the curse

I’ve been arguing with the voices in my mind

I’ve been rolling round like a penny on the side

And I’m here lonely, so the lord can help me out

Oh, heaven lift me up and put my feet back on the ground

I tried to walk a mile with the shackles on my shoes

Bit hard to risk it all when you’ve got nothing to lose

They say he can drop the shadows of my sins

So I’m knocking on the door, until the big guy let’s me in

Look around, what you see is solid gold

We’ve been told too many stories, that the writings on the wall

Feel my soul, feel my warm wicked thirst

Now, I’m free of all my troubles

And I’m shaking off the curse

‘Cause, I’ve got one more round to go

Tell the devil, go hit the road

Leave your dirt at the door

‘Cause, we’ve got one more round to go

And I’ve been working to the bone

Tell my baby, I’m coming home

Pour it up, let it roll

‘Cause, we’ve got one more round to go

You try and play it right, but you end up on your own

Stand up and roll the dice, before your days are gone

They try to shoot me down, like a rabbit on the run

But how you gonna kill me, with no bullet in the gun

Look around, what you see is solid gold

We’ve been told too many stories, that the writings on the wall

Feel my soul, feel my warm wicked thirst

Now, I’m free of all my troubles

And I’m shaking off the curse

‘Cause, I’ve got one more round to go

Tell the devil, go hit the road

Leave your dirt at the door

‘Cause, we’ve got one more round to go

And I’ve been working to the bone

Tell my baby, I’m coming home

Pour it up, let it roll

‘Cause, we’ve got one more round to go

‘Cause I’ve lost my self control

And I, oh, I pray and I pray and I pray

Solid gold

Look around, what you see is solid gold

We’ve been told too many stories, that the writings on the wall

Feel my soul, feel my warm wicked thirst

Now, I’m free of all my troubles

And I’m shaking off the curse

‘Cause, I’ve got one more round to go

Tell the devil, go hit the road

Leave your dirt at the door

‘Cause, we’ve got one more round to go

And I’ve been working to the bone

Tell my baby, I’m coming home

Pour it up, let it roll

‘Cause, I’ve got one more round to go

(Cause, we’ve got one more round to go)

‘Cause, I’ve got one more round to go

Tell the devil to go hit the road

‘Cause, we’ve got one more round to go

And I’ve been working to the bone

Tell my baby, I’m coming home

Pour it up, let it roll

‘Cause, we’ve got one more round to go

‘Cause, we’ve got one more round to go

Tell the devil to go hit the road

We’ve got one more round to go

And I’ve been working to the bone

Tell my baby, I’m coming home

Pour it up, let it roll

‘Cause, we’ve got one more round to go

Ella Henderson Billie Holiday

I remember when Daddy said ‘What do you wanna be?’

I said I wanna be a mermaid and to live under the sea

Well I knew it wouldn’t work out as I looked down at my feet

Then my granddad played me my very first record

And that’s when it changed for me

It made me smile, made me sing

Made my worries fly away

Lifted me up, set me free

I could be Billie Holiday

And they say life’s hard to figure out when in reality

You gotta sit back, just relax

And let it happen naturally

I went to sit by the keys to work on my first song

I had the melodies in my head

But they were coming out all wrong

Then I worked out some harmonies

That went oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

And then that sweet sound spoke to me

And told me where I belong

It made me smile, made me sing

Made my worries fly away

Lifted me up, set me free

I could be Billie Holiday

And they say life’s hard to figure out when in reality

You gotta sit back, just relax

And let it happen naturally

Oh, fly away

Oh, so naturally

Oh, take the stress away

‘Cause I know, yeah I know

It’ll make you feel alright

It made me smile, made me sing

Made my worries fly away

Lifted me up, set me free

I could be Billie Holiday

And they say life’s hard to figure out when in reality

You gotta sit back, just relax

And let it happen naturally

Gotta sit back, just relax and let it happen naturally

Gotta sit back, just relax and let it happen naturally

Gotta sit back, just relax and let it happen naturally

Gotta sit back, just relax and let it happen naturally
