Ellie Goulding – Let It Die lyrics

[Verse 1]
Headlights flashing, cold eyes
Know your bullets fly through the night
Broken doors falling, and hotel floors
I was never yours, never mine

[Pre-Chorus]
All I said was "Hello, hello"
You just stood and watched me cry to pass the time
And all I said was "Hello, hello"
Tell me how to say "goodbye," cause it's goodbye

[Chorus]
I can't stay on my knees
Give me some mercy, please
It's alright, let it die
I wanted everything
More than your love could give
It's alright, let it die

[Verse 2]
See change whispers in the waves
Watch my sorrows drown peacefully
And empires crumble to the shores
I was never yours, never mine

[Pre-Chorus]
All I said was "Hello, hello"
You just stood and watched me cry to pass the time
And all I said was "Hello, hello"
Tell me how to say "goodbye," cause it's goodbye

[Chorus]
I can't stay on my knees
Give me some mercy, please
It's alright, let it die
I wanted everything
More than your love could give
It's alright, let it die

[Chorus]
I can't stay on my knees
Give me some mercy, please
It's alright, let it die
I wanted everything
More than your love could give
It's alright, let it die
I can't stay on my knees
Give me some mercy, please
It's alright, let it die
I wanted everything
More than your love could give
It's alright, let it die
