Explosions
Ellie Goulding Lyrics


You trembled like you'd seen a ghost
And I gave in
I lack the things you need the most
You said where have you been
You wasted all that sweetness to run and hide
I wonder why
I remind you of the days you poured your heart into
But you never tried
I've fallen from grace
Took a blow to my face
I've loved and I've lost
I've loved and I've lost

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

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

And as the floods move in
And your body starts to sink
I was the last thing on your mind
I know you better than you think
'Cause it's simple darling, I gave you a warning
Now everything you own is falling from the sky in pieces
So watch them fall with you, in slow motion
I pray that you will find peace of mind
And I'll find you another time
I'll love you, another time

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

Her smile at the end ❤ A part of me misses Ellie before she got real big, but I also respect how she's evolved in the music industry. Her sound is so unique.

@M L no, it was in the 'burn' erea, this song is still known for everyone. It happened again in 'love me like you do' and after those songs, her style of music, lyrics, overall esthetics, changed and maybe for the worse. Her style then was sooo honest, real and different, and now... Her songs sound like everything and nothing like hers. This probably the price of success, selling your truth. Sorry for my English, it isn't my first language 🤗🤷🏼‍♀️😅

@Atka SilverStar this was when she was biggest?

Atka SilverStar

same honestly. after she got big I kind of stopped listening to her music and im just coming back to it now because it's just way too good to avoid despite the massive change.
