ELLIE GOULDING feat TINIE TEMPAH - Hanging On

This song is from the album Halcyon Days(2013), released on Aug 27, 2013.
What a powerful performance. Her vocals and the effects on it made the song a very powerful one. The rap by Tinie was also very impressive. The rhythm felt nice, and the background music had enough energy and power to move the song forward. I expected the bass to be a little more complex, but was disappointed.

[INTRO] Bm A G A x4
[VERSE]
Bm                    A
You know we can get away
               G           A
Because I'm calling your name
Bm                      A
Every day I feel this pain
              G               A
But you just turn and walk away

[CHORUS]
Bm  A                      G  A          Bm
I just can't keep hanging on, to you and me
A                            G A               Bm A G A
I just don't know what is wrong, with you and me

[VERSE]
Bm                      A
Touch me and then turn away
              G                A
And put your hands into the flame
Bm                         A
Tell me if you feel this pain
               G                      A     Bm
Cause I don't want to be a ball and chain, nooo

[CHORUS]
Bm  A                      G  A          Bm
I just can't keep hanging on, to you and me
A                            G A
I just don't know what is wrong,

[VERSE]
G
Give me the respect, forgive me and forget
G
We've got to get a grip, living on the edge
  A
I barely even know this fucking woman in my bed
A
And if there's too much on my plate, then I ain't finishing my veg
         G
And if anybody said the grass is greener on the other side
G
Well it ain't, swear on my mother's life
A
You got me wrapped up in your shit
A
I'm feeling mummified
A
I've only ever had this fucking feeling in my stomach twice
      G
You gave me what I needed, and I gave her everything she wanted
G
Miss something 'bout your cleavage
G
Now why can't put my fingers on it
           A
You're taking me the deepest
     A
I thought that she was coming for me
  A
If all women are from venus, then I guess I really got a rocket
G
You've got a noose around my neck, but I'm still hanging on
G
We've nearly reached the finish line up in our marathon
A
I spat a verse, she sang a song
A                                    G
She broke my heart, I took some Gaviscon

[CHORUS]
Bm  A                      G  A          G
I just can't keep hanging on, to you and me
G           A
To you and me
