Ellie Goulding – Fighter Plane lyrics

Stones falling down
Rollercoaster, heart pound?
Fears overplayed...
Two left feet emergency.

Wide open space
Catch my tail,
Fishing net.
Fold up my frown
Take the rage
And smooth it out.

Stick to my skin,
Paper mache face to live in.
Same view to paint,
Watercolour your name

Face your mistakes
(You will never have to feel that way again)
Oil your chains, under rate.
(You will never have to feel that way again)
Read every page,
Press the dents (of my) fighter plane

I held the fort, and I swung my sword I have muted the screams I have broken the falls oh I have fought, and I swung my sword I have muted the screams I have broken the falls

Fighter Plane
Fly away!

    I really feel that this song is a love song. The ma. That she loves makes her feel amazing but when she explains being on a rollercoaster they have UPS and downs but fight through it. She explains that he hasn't been loved the right way and she will treat him better than his previous love has. But its not just her feeling she has to love him, but feeling insecure she may not love him right either. She explains "you'll never have to feel that way again" saying her lover doesn't have to feel horrible about there self. "I have broken through" her explaining she broke through his broken heart to make it feel well again. She also says "fighter plane, fly away" saying, do not fight to love anymore, because I promise ill love you right* This song is just beautiful and her voice is just so magical to portray love. I love it.
