Army - Ellie Goulding


The Experience: You never even judge me... always thought you were too cool for me... but when I'm with you I'm standing with an army... Friends are strongest when they're together...



Music video: Ellie Goulding as only her friends see her, especially her friend Hannah...

The Meaning of Army: Ellie Goulding has explained that Army is a long overdue tribute to her best friend. Two isn't a crowd. Two is an army, an unstoppable force Not because they're perfect, or powerful - we don't look like much. Not because they're both totally cool - always thought you were too cool for me. But because they understand each other -  yeah, you understand, yeah, like no one else can. When someone really gets you, and is always there to get your back - that's when you're an army. And they don't stand a chance.

Ask yourself: Do you have a friend who understands you and always has your back?

LYRICS:

I know that I mess up
But you never let me give up
All the nights and the fights and the blood and all the break ups
You're always there to call up
I'm in pain, I'm a child, I'm afraid
But, yeah, you understand
Yeah, like no one else can
But know that we don't look like much
But no one f-cks it up like us

Sixteen and you never even judge me
Matter of fact always thought you were too cool for me
Sitting there in the caravan
All the nights we've been drunk on the floor
But, yeah, you understand
Yeah, like no one else can

We both know what they say
But they don't stand a chance because

When I'm with you
When I'm with you
I'm standing with an army
I'm standing with an army
When I'm with you
When I'm with you
I'm standing with an army
I'm standing with an army

Dark times
You could always find the bright side
I'm amazed by the things that you would sacrifice
Just to be there for me
How you cringe when you sing out of tune ooh

But, yeah, it's everything
So don't change a thing

We both know what they say about us
But they don't stand a chance because

When I'm with you
When I'm with you
I'm standing with an army
I'm standing with an army
When I'm with you
When I'm with you
I'm standing with an army
I'm standing with an army

(Standing with an army 6x)

I'm standing with an army

Yeah, they don't understand
And no one can
We both know what they say about us

(No one can) (no one can)
(When I'm with you) (when I'm with you )

When I'm with you
When I'm with you
I'm standing with an army
I'm standing with an army
When I'm with you
When I'm with you
I'm standing with an army
They don't understand and no one can

(Standing with an army) 6x

(When I'm with you)

(Standing with an army) 6x

Standing with an army, yeah

(Standing with an army) 3x

Standing with an army, yeah

(When I'm with you) 4x

Standing with an army
