ELLIE GOULDING - When Your Feet Don’t Touch The Ground

This song is from the album Finding Neverland: The Album(2015), released on Jun 09, 2015.
What a beautiful song! I loved the production and the beauty in her voice. The slow piano and the beautiful strings in the background brought a nice feel to the song. The lyrics were interesting, especially the chorus part. The orchestration and the arrangement felt amazing.

[INTRO] F Am Dm C Bb F Gm F C
[VERSE]
F                           Am
When did life become so complicated?
Dm                             Am
Years of too much thought and time I wasted
Bb                       F
And in each line upon my face
    Gm                F             C
Is proof I fought and lived another day

F                           Asus4      A
When did life become this place of madness?
Dm                           C
Drifting on an empty sea of waves and sadness?
Bb                     F
I make believe I'm in control
    Gm              F       C
And dream it wasn't all my fault

[CHORUS]
           F                    Am
When your feet don't touch the ground
            Dm                 Am
When your voice won't make a sound
            Bb              F                Csus4 C
Here, it's safe, in this place, above the clouds

           F                    Am
When your feet don't touch the earth
           Dm                   Am
You can't feel the things that hurt
           Bb                 F            Csus4 C
And you're free, there's no need to come down
           Bb
When your feet don't touch the ground

[VERSE]
F                       Am
Everyday just feels a little longer
Dm                          Am
Why am I the only one not getting stronger?
Bb                                   F
Running around pretending life's a play
    Gm                F           C
It doesn't make the darkness go away


F                          Asus4 A
I may be young but I can still remember
Dm                           Am
Feeling full of joy, crying tears of laughter
     Bb                      F
Now all my tears are all cried out
  Gm               F       C
Make-believe, but count me out

[CHORUS]
         F                 Am
Cause my feet are on the ground
          Dm            Am
And the inner voice I found
             Bb               F
Tells the truth, "There's no use
                          Csus4 C
If your head's in the clouds"

       F               Am
With my feet on solid earth
        Dm                  C
I can face the things that hurt
        Bb            F
And in time, I'll be fine
           Csus4 C
I'll come 'round

[BRIDGE]
Dm              C
I was once like you
Bb          F
Life was a maze
Gm             F       C
I couldn't find my way out
Dm                 C
But what I say is true
Bb            F
You will be amazed
        Gm                 F                   C
Make-believe and you will find out that it's time

[CHORUS]
            G                      Bm
When your feet don't touch the ground
            Em                Bm
When your voice won't make a sound
             C             G
Here, it's safe. In this place
            Dsus4 D
Above the clouds
            G                   Bm
When your feet don't touch the earth
           Em                   Bm
You can't feel the things that hurt
              C             G           Dsus4 D
And you're feel, there's no need, to come down
            C                          G
When your feet don't touch the ground
