"Halcyon" is the title track by English recording artist Ellie Goulding, released from her second studio album, Halcyon (2012) and is track number 5 on the album. It was written by Goulding and Jim Elliot and was produced by Eliot and Goulding her self.

BackgroundEdit

In an interview with Carson Daly on his 97.1 AMP Radio show on 6 August 2012, Goulding explained the inspiration behind the album's title, saying, "[Halcyon is] like a bird that basically during the winter, it would lay its eggs by the sea and bring calm to the stormy waters and a lot of my songs on this record are about the ocean and water."

"Halcyon" was co-written and co-produced by Goulding and is an electronic song.

LyricsEdit

I know it's not over
Baby I worked this out for sure
It's gonna be colder
Now you've forced open the door
I know you better
Than I ever have before
I know you...
I know you're a fighter
But you never fought for me
When I was a shelter
So you're not heading home to me
We could be closer
We could be closer
We could be...
When it's just us
You show me what it feels like to be lonely
You show me what it feels like to be lost
I take your hand for you to let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go
When it's just us
You show me what it feels like to be lonely
You show me what it feels like to be lost
I take your hand for you to let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go
It's gonna be... (It's gonna be better)
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be...
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
We'll take a long walk
Down the alley of these houses
And we'll talk
See what conversation rouses
When we're alone
When we're alone
It could be home
When it's just us
You show me what it feels like to be lonely
You show me what it feels like to be lost
I take your hand for you to let it go
Let it go, let it go, let it go
It's gonna be... (It's gonna be better)
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be...
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be...(It's gonna be better)
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be...
It's gonna be better
It's gonna be better
