Ellie Goulding – Mosaic lyrics

I am a mosaic
That was found at
The bottom of your garden
I'm just wondering but the crack begin to show
Look closely and then you'll know
Then you'll know

I am a beauty that once was
Tell the country nothing something special
But never out of your league of
Battle with this twice now
He came to me said
"heres how"
Spoke a single line
And we dance in our scene
I'll just die in your arms
And my life is complete

I am a mosaic
That was found when you didn't know any better
I am broken now (x3)
And image that is scattered
Around and (x5)
A million ways I, I
Didn't have to hurt (x3)
Fought away this twice
And now all we came to reason
"heres how"
Spoke a single line
We danced in our scene
I could just die in your arms and my life is complete

Craddled your legs
And took to your feet
You're the strongest love
I ever did meet
Spoke a single line
While we danced in our scene
Just die in your arms and my life is complete

    I understand elie's song mosaic as a symbol of being repeatetly hurt, yet still in a constant search of an happy ending. She was broken for thousand times by her past loves and as she, while on the emotional bottom, meets the person she's singing about, she, idealisticly hopes this time would be different. She feels secure and believes his love is curing her cracks and wounds. But again, he breaks her and she's aware of her mosaic of life, the patterns we all repeat again and again, trying to find security in something familiar, even though that familiar old pattern always ends up with the same familiar patterned pain. Since she's now aware of it, she can at least learn something from it, and keeps the best memories of her love, that are left inside the cracks of disappointment he caused. She keeps the best from it and goes on, as we all do, trying to find a beginning of a new pattern.
