ELLA HENDERSON - Empire

This song is from the album Chapter One(Deluxe).
What a beautiful song! I loved the lyrics and the production of this song more than anything. The lyrics of the chorus were amazing. She talks about her love as building an empire. I loved that part where she repeats the word "Empire", the chords in the background at that place makes it even more beautiful to listen to. The production and the rhythm are beautiful. I think this is definitely one of the best songs from her album.

[INSTRUMENTAL] G Am Em C

[VERSE]
G
I see your light
Am                            Em
I know it’s coming and I’m terrified
C                          G
No more defences here to hide behind
Am               Em C
Oh, just you and I
     G
And through the smoke
Am                        Em
I see you burning like a ray of hope
C                          G     Am
I found the fire now the ashes glow
           Em C
Oh, I come alive

[PRE-CHORUS]
              G
And now that I’m awake
   Am
I’m not afraid
     Em           C
I’m letting go tonight

[CHORUS]
        G                   Am
‘Cause we found strength in each others’ arms
    Em                      C
We built this love and we made it our
   G     Am       Em C
Empire, empire, empire
     G                      Am
And you and I can rule each others’ hearts
       Em                      C
We’ll build on love and we’ll make it our
   G      Am      Em C
Empire, empire, empire

[VERSE]
G
Stone by stone
Am                          Em
We’ll build a tower we can call our own
C                              G
So high that we’ll forget the world below
Am              Em  C
Oh, just you and I, I

[PRE-CHORUS]
             G
So let the drums roll
    Am
The cannons blow
       Em            C
We’re letting go tonight

[CHORUS]
        G                   Am
‘Cause we found strength in each others’ arms
    Em                      C
We built this love and we made it our
   G     Am       Em C
Empire, empire, empire
     G                      Am
And you and I can rule each others’ hearts
       Em                      C
We’ll build on love and we’ll make it our
   G      Am      Em C
Empire, empire, empire

[BRIDGE]
               G
They’ll never take it down
G
Take it down
Am
Burn it down
Am
Burn us down
Em
Take it down
Em             C
Take down our empire
             G
They’ll never take it down
G
Take it down
Am
Burn it down
Am
Burn us down
Em
Take it down
Em             C
Take down our empire

We built this love and we made it our
   G     Am       Em C
Empire, empire, empire
     G                      Am
And you and I can rule each others’ hearts
