Ellie Goulding – Hollow Crown lyrics
[Chorus]
You know you're fighting in a losing battle
Making a noose out of your hollow crown
I hold a match up to your paper castle
And watch it all burn down, down, down
You know you’re fighting in a losing battle
Making a noose out of your hollow crown
I hold a match up to your paper castle
And watch it all burn down, down, down
Down, down, down

[Verse 1]
T-tell me what you see, my dear, my dear
Is there anyone you trust 'round here, 'round here
Keep a knife under your pillow, the sharks and the minnows
Smell blood in the water ’round here, 'round here
And tell me who you're fighting right now, right now
You got everyone against you somehow, somehow
It's become an obsession, look at your reflection
And look who you're becoming right now, right now (Oh)

[Pre-Chorus]
I could've been who you trusted (Oh)
I could've been who you need right now (Oh)
But you pushed me away, yeah, you lost me (Oh)
And now you're lost

[Chorus]
You know you’re fighting in a losing battle
Making a noose out of your hollow crown
I hold a match up to your paper castle
And watch it all burn down, down, down
You know you’re fighting in a losing battle
Making a noose out of your hollow crown
I hold a match up to your paper castle
And watch it all burn down, down, down
Down, down, down

[Verse 2]
A funny kind of love, my dear, my dear
Got a kick out of the taste of my tears out here
Thought you had to play a villain, running from your feelings
But I'm walking on my own, no fear, no fear (Oh)

[Pre-Chorus]
I could’ve been who you trusted (Oh)
(I could've been who you trusted)
I could've been who you need right now (Oh)
But you pushed me away, yeah, you lost me (Oh)
And now you're lost

[Chorus]
You know you’re fighting in a losing battle
Making a noose out of your hollow crown
I hold a match up to your paper castle
And watch it all burn down, down, down
You know you're fighting in a losing battle
Making a noose out of your hollow crown
I hold a match up to your paper castle
And watch it all burn down, down, down
Down, down, down
