So what to do

Still falling for you

This is our luck baby, running out

Our clothes were never off

We still have our roads to run about

To scale the map, scale the map

To get us back on track

I've seen you in a fight you lost

I've seen you in a fight

We're under the sheets and you're killing me

In our house made of paper

Your words all over me

We're under the sheets and you're killing me

Been jumpin' through hoops to get under you

Baby, you don't gotta, you don't gotta worry

Worry 'bout me

You can worry 'bout this

You can worry 'bout that

You just want the power

Sorry if I'm ignoring

Mindless actions, lead to destruction

Slow grenade is blowing up my mistakes

So why don't I, why don't I stop it?

Still got time for me to stop it

It's like a part of me must want it

That's why I'm not running from it

Can't escape this blowing up

In my face so why can't I

Why can't I stop it?

Album: Halcyon Days

And this is far from joy

I never seemed to learn,

That high makes things harder

That high I get from you

14. Wish I Stayed-

Album: Lights

Released: 20 December 2009

Genre: Pop

Ellie Goulding songs are mostly pop and romantic but this one is sad and deep.

 And I wish I stayed

I wish I stayed

I wish I stayed

'Cause you can fall if you want to

It's just a matter of how far

You've treasured our home town

You've forgotten where you are

And it will stay with you until your mind's been found

And it has been found wandering around

With that skipping rope, the trampoline

The crafty smoke that made us choke

But we didn't give up hope

It's the simple ways of getting paid

The carelessness of running away

15. You My Everything-

You My Everything | Ellie Goulding Songs

Album: Halcyon Days

Released: 2013

You were my backbone when

My body ached with wearyness

You were my hometown when

My heart was filled with loneliness

Just as the dark was rising

I heard you close the door again

Just as the light turns off

I know who I dream of

Could have given me something

You my everything

You left me kneeling

I was one of those people

You, my everything

You, my everything

16. Explosions-

Album: Halcyon Days

Released: 30 January 2013

Genre: Pop

Explosions on the day you wake up

Needing somebody and you've learned

It's okay to be afraid

But it will never be the same

It will never be the same

You left my soul bleeding in the dark

So you could be king

The rules you set are still untold to me and I

Lost my faith in everything

The nights you could cope, your intentions were gold

But the mountains will shake

I need to know I can still make

17. Goodness Gracious-

Album: Halcyon Days

Released: 13 January 2014

Genre: Pop

Goodness gracious, I can't seem to stop

Calling it off, calling it off just to keep crawling to your arms

Goodness gracious, I can't seem to stop

Calling it off, calling it off just to keep crawling to your arms

I found the weakness and put it to play

Swore upon the stars, I'd keep you till the night was day

Shake my head dizzy, so I'll never know

You said if you're never coming back, you have to go

Every time you go (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

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 (ooh)

(Light, lights, lights, lights

Light, lights, lights, lights

How wonderful life is

Now you're in the world.

I wanna know, I wanna know

Album: Lights

Take cover

Signs don't show

You drove me off the road

But you let go

'Cause your hope is gone

And every question fades away

It's a shame you don't know what you're running from

Would your bones have to break and your lights turn off

Would it take the end of time to hear you heart's false start

You know this is your biggest mistake

23. The Writer-

Album: Lights

Released: 8 August 2010

Genre: Pop

Sat on your sofa, it's all broken springs

This isn't the place for those violin strings

I try out a smile and I aim it at you

You must have missed it

You always do

But I've got a plan

Why don't you be the artist, and make me out of clay?

Why don't you be the writer and decide the words I say?

'Cause I'd rather pretend

I'll still be there at the end

Only it's too hard to ask, won't you try to help me

You wait, I wait, casting shadows, interrupted

You wait, I wait, casting shadows, interrupted

You are the risk I'll always take

The only branch I'll never break

Those fears we'll blow them all way

25. Salt Skin-

Album: Lights

Released: March 2010

Genre: Pop

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"

Album: Brightest Blue

From all the times I tried to climb higher and higher

But you put me in the the water, now I drown in desire

For all the things you made me feel, you make me feel better

You make me feel better, oh
