Ellie Goulding - Your Song

Ellie Goulding - Your Song

Ellie Goulding is an English singer- songwriter, your song originally singed by Elton John.

The first time I heard this song is on the TV  from John Lewis commercial adverts during the Christmas time period in 2010. Her voice is so catching because it's so pure and innocent, then I started to searched on the YouTube. Which I found that  "Your Song" is sung by a famous singer Elton John, he sang  "Your Song" first in 1970, this is one of his favorites song and he plays it at most of his concerts and in concert for Diana. This song has been covered by number of artists. Ellie Goulding's version is my Favorited which reached No.2 on the UK Singles Chart in Late 2010. 

Elton John - Your Song (Concert For Diana)

The lyrics express the romantic thoughts of an innocent. Hope you enjoy this lovely song !!

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you
And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen
