Ellie Goulding – Wish I Stayed

Why can’t we speak another language, one we all agree on?
Why and when men look outside, do they see houses,
Instead of the fields they grew from?
We are constantly uprooted from them, making us tiresome and fearful,
Can you get up right now? Endeavour to free-fall.

‘Cause you can fall if you want to, it’s just a matter of how far,
You’ve treasured your home town, but you’ve forgotten where you are.
And it will stay with you until you’re mind’s been found,
and it has been found wondering 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,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed.

Patterns all arranged in my background,
It’s pillars and posts keeping this country on form.
Letters were all sent with no addresses so that people can’t discover.
We’re always undercover.
Why do I always draw triangles instead of words this paper so deserves?

‘Cause you see,
I don’t own my clothes but I own my mind,
And it’s not what you’ve lost,
But it’s what you find.

We found 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,
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 your home town, but you’ve forgotten where you are.
And it will stay with you ’til you’re mind’s been found,
and it has been found wondering 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,
Now, I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed.

Ellie Goulding – Guns and Horses (Acoustic)

You’re so quiet
But it doesn’t faze me
You’re on time
You move so fast, makes me feel lazy

Let’s join forces
We’ve got our guns and horses
I know you’ve been burned
But every fire is a lesson learned

I left my house
Left my clothes
Door wide open
Heaven knows
You’re so worth it, you are

But I wish I could feel it all for you
I wish I could be it all for you
If I could erase the pain
Maybe you’d feel the same
I’d do it all for you
I would [x4]

Let’s tie words
‘Cause they amount to nothing
Play it down
Pretend you can’t take what you’ve found
But you found me
On a screen you sit at permanently

I left my house
Left my clothes
Door wide open
Heaven knows
You’re so worth it, you are

But I wish I could feel it all for you
I wish I could be it all for you
If I could erase the pain
Maybe you’d feel the same
I’d do it all for you
I would [x4]

It’s time to come clean
And make sense of everything
It’s time that we found out who we are
Cause when I’m standing here in the dark
I see your face in every star

But I wish I could feel it all for you
I wish I could be it all for you
If I could erase the pain
Maybe you’d feel the same
I’d do it all for you
I would [x3]
I’d do it all for you, I’d do it all for you [x4],
