Ellie Goulding – Hollow Crown Lyrics

Hollow Crown Lyrics by Ellie Goulding


[Ellie Goulding]
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

[Ellie Goulding]
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

[Ellie Goulding]
Now 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

[Ellie Goulding]
Tell me who you’re fighting right now, right now
You’ve 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

[Ellie Goulding]
I could’ve been who you trusted
I could’ve been who you need right now
But you pushed me away, yeah, you lost me
And now you’re lost

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

[Ellie Goulding]
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

[Ellie Goulding]
A funny kind of love my dear, my dear
Got a kick out of the taste of my tears, out here
Though you had to play the villain
Running from your feelings
But I’m walking on my own, no fear, no fear

I could’ve been who you trusted
I could’ve been who you need right now
But you pushed me away, yeah, you lost me
And now you’re lost

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

[Ellie Goulding]
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
