ELLIE GOULDING - Explosions

This song is from the album Halcyon(2013), released on Aug 27, 2013.
I enjoyed the production and the grittiness in her voice. The lyrics felt really powerful and emotional, especially the chorus. I loved the rhythm and the dynamics in the chorus, it brought in a great feeling of power and energy.

[INTRO] F Dm F Dm
[VERSE]
F
You trembled like you'd seen a ghost
F
And I gave in
F
I lacked the things you need the most,
F
You said where have you been?


F
You wasted all that sweetness to run and hide
F
I wonder why
F
I remind you of the days you poured your heart into
F
But you never tried

      Dm
I've fallen from grace
Dm
Took a blow to my face
       Bb
I've loved and I've lost
       C
I've loved and I've lost

[CHORUS]
Bb      Dm            F
Explosions...on the day you wake up
F                             Dm C Am
Needing somebody and you've learned
Am     Bb        F
It's okay to be afraid
Bb                         F
But it will never be the same
Dm                   F Dm
It will never be the same

[VERSE]
F                  Dm
You left my soul bleeding in the dark
F                 Dm
So you could be king
F                        Dm
The rules you set are still untold to me
      F                     Dm
And I've lost my faith in everything

      Am
The nights you could cope,
      Dm
Your intentions were gold
        Am
But the mountains will shake
            C
I need to know I can still make

[CHORUS]
Bb      Dm            F
Explosions...on the day you wake up
F                             Dm C Am
Needing somebody and you've learned
Am     Bb        F
It's okay to be afraid
Bb                         Dm
But it will never be the same

[INSTRUMENTAL] Dm F Gm Bb

[BRIDGE]
Dm
And as the floods move in
F                        Gm
And your body starts to sink
                               Bb
I was the last thing on your mind
                              Dm
I know you better than you think
                    C                   Am
'Cause it's simple darling, I gave you warning
                         Bb                       Dm
Now everything you own is falling from the sky in pieces
               F                       Gm
So watch them fall with you, in slow motion
                         Bb
I pray that you'll find peace of mind
                     Dm
And I'll find you another time
C                 Gm
I'll love you, another time

[CHORUS]
Bb      Dm            F
Explosions...on the day you wake up
F                             Dm C Am
Needing somebody and you've learned
Am     Bb        F
It's okay to be afraid
Bb                         F
But it will never be the same
