ELLIE GOULDING - Lights

This song is from the album Lights(2011), released on Mar 08, 2011.
What I liked the most about this song is the energy and power in her execution. The lyrics felt great, and the production complimented the feel and vibe that the song was going to. The energy in her performance helped to carry the song forward and those little harmonies that she added to certain lines were absolutely beautiful. Thanks to Julie for her suggestion.

[INTRO] Abm F# E C#m
[VERSE]
         Abm  F#            E        C#m
I had a way then losing it all on my own
         Abm        F#                        E   C#m
I had a heart then but the queen has been overthrown
     Abm             F#         E              C#m
And I'm not sleeping now, the dark is too hard to beat
     Abm              F#          E              C#m
And I'm not keeping now the strength I need to push me

[CHORUS]
    Abm                             F#
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
       E                C#m
You shine it when I'm alone
          Abm               F#
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
      E                    C#m
And dreaming when they're gone

                  Abm                 F#
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
E                  C#m
Calling, calling, calling home
                 Abm              F#
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    E                     C#m
You shine it when I'm alone home

[VERSE]
Abm   F#           E      C#m
Voices I play within my head
          Abm           F#             E        C#m
Touch my own skin and hope that I'm still breathing
    Abm                F#       E             C#m
And I think back to when my brother and my sister slept
Abm           F#          E            C#m
In an unknown place the only time I feel safe

[CHORUS]
    Abm                             F#
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
       E                C#m
You shine it when I'm alone
          Abm               F#
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
      E                    C#m
And dreaming when they're gone

                  Abm                 F#
'Cause they're calling, calling, calling me home
E                  C#m
Calling, calling, calling home
                 Abm              F#
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    E                     C#m
You shine it when I'm alone home

Calling, calling, calling home
                 Abm              F#
You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
    E                     C#m
You shine it when I'm alone home
