Beating Heart - Ellie Goulding


The ExperienceI fell for you like autumn leaves...and I don't know where I'm going...want to hear your beating heart tonight...I want to make the best of what is left...and hear my beating heart one last time. It´s all about discovering what makes our heart beat. 


Music video: The lyric video shows scenes from the upcoming movie "Divergent". Tris Prior discovers there is much more to life than doing what everybody else has always done. She lets her heart beat for what she truly believes in: love and freedom. Just like the lyrics themselves,the music video leaves love as a frustrated desire. Ellie Goulding never grants us a glimpse of happiness, preferring to focus on the cracked lips and salty cheeks. A ragged Ellie Goulding drink her simulation serum and wake up in an empty wilderness where her lover tries to find her, and does. Cut to scenes of Tris and Four from Divergent. But back in Ellie Goulding's simulation, she wakes up before they can kiss... and downs another serum just as the video fades out. 

Meaning of Beating Heart: In the midst of many tragedies Tris Prior, discovers there is always a reason to move forward. Her heart beats despite the wounded lips and salted cheeks. Many people have given their lives to save her. This has changed her. Has made her discover who she is and what she wants. Following the beating of her heart she will continue fighting for what is right.

Ask yourself: What makes my heart beat? What keeps me going every day?



LYRICS:

With wounded lips and salted cheeks 
And finally we stepped to leave to the departure lounge 
This belief 
And I don't know where I'm going 
But I know it's gonna be a long time 
And I'll be leaving in the morning 
On the white wine bit to sunlight 

Want to hear your beating heart tonight 
Before that bleeding sun comes to life 
I want to make the best of what is left for tight 
And hear my beating heart one last time 
Before the light 

And the canyon underneath the trees 
Behind the dark sky he looked at me 
I fell for you like autumn leaves 
And never faded ever green 
And I don't know where I'm going 

But I know it's gonna be a long time 
And I'll be leaving in the morning 
On the white wine bit to sunlight 

Want to hear your beating heart tonight 
Before that bleeding sun comes to life 
I want to make the best of what is left for tight 
And hear my beating heart one last time 

I  can't think now
Everything's changed 
I just want to be by your side
Here's hoping we collide 
Here's hoping we collide
Here's hoping we collide 

Want to hear your beating heart tonight 
Before that bleeding sun comes to life 
I want to make the best of what is left for tight 
And hear my beating heart one last time 

Want to hear your beating heart
