Ellie Goulding Salt Skin

You’re as sharp as a knife

and you fit like a glove

That is no way to live

that is no way to love

Full of fear in your skin

and the weakness in giving in

You’re stabbed in the back but you feel no pain

Push the heaviest doors

that you can’t open

Yeah they tied me up

and my body lies still, again

You’re as bright as the sun

and as calm as the moon

I don’t know when you’ll break

but it’s gonna be soon

If my will caves in, I’ll be in the same

boat as you

I’ve got the salt skin

Running to where he is

Never going to give in

Even with the strength

He’s stealing salt skin

Telling me I’m winning wars they created

just to understand…

“the meaning of”

Hands on strings and my mouth open

Find the perfect words

that I’ve not spoken

And I won’t tell the truth

unless you want me to

For all of the times that I lost my head

When it rolled to the floor

and I found it again

But when it came back

No, I didn’t know my own name

I’ve got the salt skin

Running to where he is

Never going to give in

Even with the strength

He’s stealing salt skin

Telling me I’m winning wars they created

just to understand…

“the meaning of”

I’ve got the salt skin

Running to where he is

Never going to give in

Even with the strength

He’s stealing salt skin

Telling me I’m winning wars they created

just to understand…

I’ve got the salt skin

Running to where he is

Never going to give in

Even with the strength

He’s stealing salt skin

Telling me I’m winning wars they created

just to understand…

“the meaning”

Ellie Goulding When Your Feet Don’t Touch The Ground

When did life become so complicated?

Years of too much thought and time I wasted

And in each line upon my face

Is proof I fought and lived another day

When did life become this place of madness?

Drifting on an empty sea of waves and sadness?

I make believe I’m in control

And dream it wasn’t all my fault

When your feet don’t touch the ground

When your voice won’t make a sound

Here, it’s safe, in this place, up off the clouds

When your feet don’t touch the earth

You can’t feel the fates that hurt

And you’re free, there’s no need to come down

When your feet don’t touch the ground

Everyday just feels a little longer

Why am I the only one not getting stronger?

Running around pretending life’s a play

It doesn’t make the darkness go away

I may be young but I can still remember

Feeling full of joy, crying tears of laughter

Now all my tears are all cried out

Make-believe, but count me out

Cause my feet are on the ground

And the inner voice I found

Tells the truth, “There’s no use

If your head’s in the clouds”

With my feet on solid earth

I can face the fates that hurt

And in time, I’ll be fine

I’ll come ’round

I was once like you

Life was a maze

I couldn’t find my way out

But what I say is true

You will be amazed

Make-believe and you will find out that it’s true

When your feet don’t touch the ground

When your voice won’t make a sound

Here, it’s safe. In this place

Up off the clouds

When your feet don’t touch the earth

You can’t feel the fates that hurt

And you’re free, there’s no need, to come down

When your feet don’t touch the ground

Ellie Goulding Little Dreams

If a plane crashed into my room

I wouldn’t even flinch, I couldn’t try to

move. My mind is on you, my mind is on

you

If the streetlight smashed above me

I wouldn’t move an inch. Turn the glass

into stars and your face is the moon

And the night turns to you, cos my mind is

on you

You’ve got me caught in a place

Panic for a minute, got my brain in a

daze, I wish you weren’t in it, there are so

many ways to lose your attention.

You can break everything but so what I

can take anything, I can take anything,

I can take anything

If electric charges shock me, I’d smile

and fold my arms, I’d feel nothing new,

because my mind is on you

And if the floor gave way to my shoes,

I wouldn’t try to fly, I can’t explain what it

would feel, I just feel you

You’ve got me caught in a place

Panic for a minute, got my brain in a

daze I wish you weren’t in it, there are

so many ways to lose your attention.

You can break everything but so what?

I can take anything

You’re the heat in my bones, but you

break me with stones. You’re the heat in

my bones, but you break me with stones

If a plane crashed into my room

I wouldn’t even flinch, I couldn’t try to

move. My mind is always on you, my mind is always on

you

Caught in a place

Panic for a minute, got my brain in a

daze I wish you weren’t in it, there are

so many ways to lose your attention.

You can break everything but so what?

Even when I’m caught in a place

Panic for a minute, got my brain in a

daze I wish you weren’t in it, there are

so many ways to lose your attention.

You can break everything but so what?

I can take anything

Ellie Goulding O Holy Night

O Holy Night

The stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth

Long lay the world in sin and ever pining

Til He appeared and the spirit felt its worth

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees

O hear the angel voices

O night divine

O the night when Christ was born

O Holy Night

The stars are brightly shining

Truly He taught us to love one another

His law is love and His gospel is peace

Chains He shall break for the slave is our brother

And in His name all oppression shall cease

O the world, the star is sweetly gleaming

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we

Fall on your knees

O hear the angel voices

O night divine

O the night when Christ was born

O night divine

O the night when Christ was born

When Christ was born

When Christ was born

Ellie Goulding Atlantis

This is new

Feels unused

I’ve never met anyone like you

Frightening

Feeling naked

Sense in searching something sacred

I’ll forget you not

I’ll forget you not

I’ll forget you not

I’ll wait for you… maybe

Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

I’m exhausted with loving

No fight in me- I’m defeated

I know I’m fooled, I can’t help it

You make my heart so helpless

I’ll forget you not

I’ll forget you not

I’ll wait for you… for you… maybe

I’ll forget you not… I’ll forget you not

I’ll wait for you maybe

Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?

Ellie Goulding JOY

Stood in the rain and watched you go

I feel a lump in my throat

And this is far from joy

I never seemed to learn

That high makes things harder

That high I get from you

I’ve figured out that joy is not in your arms

I know I’ll always ache with an empty heart

I think it’s time to run cause I’m seeing stars

I’m seeing stars watch me fall apart

I think of dying all the time

But I’ve got joy to take my side

Fear is my favorite ride ooh hey hoh

I’ve figured out that joy is not in your arms

I know I’ll always ache with an empty heart

I think it’s time to run cause I’m seeing stars

I’m seeing stars watch me fall apart

And then you see, oooh

I’ve figured out that joy is not in your arms

I know I’ll always ache with an empty heart

I think it’s time to run cause I’m seeing stars

I’m seeing stars watch me fall apart

Ellie Goulding Every Time You Go

Every time you go

Every time you go.

It starts with a picture,

And it sits in your frame.

And we part with a letter,

And it ends in my name.

And it starts with forever,

And it ends with a touch.

And I know that you’re clever,

And I don’t ask for much.

Maybe we forgot all the things we are, we are together.

You said I’m arresting,

You said I had heat.

I really thought that we’d go further

The second time we meet.

Now I’m tired of trying to keep you.

All I want to do is sleep.

And perhaps, when I’m sleeping,

You’ll get back on your feet.

Maybe we forgot all the things we are, we are together.

Wake me up,

Wake me up.

Stop my fall,

Every time you go.

Tape me up

Then break me up

Ever so gently,

When I’m at my weakest.

It’s not so hard

Every time you go.

I run a mount to meet you

When I knew a storm had come

I felt the rain on your face

And the damage you had done.

I know what you’re thinking.

It will never be the end.

And when the storm is over,

You won’t see me again.

Didn’t know the price I paid for all the times I stayed

When we were together.

Wake me up,

Wake me up.

Stop my fall,

Every time you go.

Tape me up

Then break me up

Ever so gently,

When I’m at my weakest.

It’s not so hard

Maybe we forgot, are we awake or not?

Maybe we forgot, are we awake or not?

Maybe we forgot, are we awake or not?

Or maybe we forgot.

Wake me up,

Wake me up.

Stop my fall,

Every time you go.

Tape me up

Then break me up

Ever so gently,

When I’m at my weakest.

Wake me up,

Wake me up.

Stop my fall,

Every time you go.

Tape me up

Then break me up

Ever so gently,

When I’m at my weakest.

It’s not so hard

Every time you go.

Ellie Goulding Beautifully Numb

I watched your feet

As you walk in

I wait for my hairs to rise on my skin

But they don’t

I’m just numb

You gimme this small talk

I could be anyone

And there’s blood

And no cut

No cut

Oh-ah-o-oh

I should be be crying

There’s too much you never said

The only face I won’t forget

No-ah-o-oh

I should be screaming

But it’s so hard to miss

An empty space like this

So I drive away

Without the brakes

Beautifully numb

(Beautifully numb…)

Tell me what

Did you expect

Am I in love like you

I forget

It’s like someone

Cut the wires

Pulling the stitches thread by thread

And there’s blood

And no cut

No cut

Oh-ah-o-oh

I should be be crying

There’s too much you never said

The only face I won’t forget

No-ah-o-oh

I should be be screaming

But it’s so hard to miss

In an empty space like this

So I drive away

Without the brakes

Beautifully numb

(Beautifully numb…)

Where did the love go?

Where did the love go?

It was only a heart that was broke

And no-ah-o-oh

I should be be crying

There’s too much you never said

The only face I won’t forget

No-ah-o-oh

I should be screaming

But it’s so hard to miss

An empty space like this

So I drive away

Without the brakes

Beautifully numb

Ellie Goulding Life Round Here

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding (x4)]

Part time love is the life round here

We’re never done

Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day

[Verse 1: Ellie Goulding]

Now we’re at square one

And we wait too long

Til’ we’re at square one

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding (x2)]

[Verse 2: Angel Haze]

I wonder how you’d feel if you were lost in my mind

Since you barely understand my thoughts sometimes

Little bit of depth and a little bit of God

Cause I swear that I be livin’ in the dark sometimes

And it sets in here, nobody gets let in

‘Til I let my emotions out on every single page and instrumental I’m left with

Shit, I wonder, will I ever really feel shit?

And if it all takes time and I ask why, will time eventually reveal this?

Cause… the remedy, I’m searchin’ for the remedy

Cause I’m fucked up and my heart’s just another ghost of my memory

Knock real hard on real real wood

Things still feel bad when they real real good

And my brain just a vessel and the knowledge suppose to heal

But the more you fuckin’ know, less things feel real

Less things feel real, and the time shifts

And my mind shifts and ain’t really anyone or anything I can really vibe with

Cause… I’m searchin’, but I’m terrified

And by the time I find what I’m lookin’ for, I’ll be dead inside

[Outro: Angel Haze (Ellie Goulding)]

Cause part time love is the life round here

We’re never done

(We’re never done)

Ellie Goulding Dead In The Water

If I was not myself

And you were someone else

I’d say so much to you

And I would tell the truth

‘Cause I can hardly breathe

When your hands let go of me

The ice is thinning out

And my feet brace themselves

I’m there in the water

Still looking for ya

I’m there in the water

Can’t you see, can’t you see?

You’ve seen this all before

Life left on the shore

We’re smiling all the same

You sail away again

I’m there in the water

Still looking for ya

I’m there in the water

Can’t you see, can’t you see?

Oh yeah

I’m dead in the water

Still looking for ya

I’m dead in the water

Can’t you see, can’t you see?

I’m dead in the water

Still looking for ya

I’m dead in the water

Can’t you see, can’t you see?
