Something In the Way You Move

Promotional single cover

"Something In The Way You Move" is a song by Ellie Goulding that is featured on Goulding's third major-label full-length album Delirium (2015).

The track was released as the second single from the album worldwide while been serviced to US radios on the 19th of January. [1] However, the song was firstly released as the first promotional single from Delirium on the 9th of October, 2015.

It was written by Ellie and Greg Kurstin with the latter producing the song also.

BackgroundEdit

The track is the first promotional single off Delirium and was released as an instant grat on iTunes on October 9th, 2015 if the album is pre-ordered. After it's release, two more promotional tracks premiered which included "Lost and Found" and "Army".

The track was then re-released as the second official single from the album worldwide where "Army" was released as the second single only in the UK.

Because the song has been released as a single, the track then received a new single art cover which seemed more clear and suitable to place anywhere without having the original pink frame as did the original promotional single cover.

CompositionEdit

Many fans and critics alike have claimed that the chorus of the song was very similar to that of "Love Me Like You Do's". During the parts where Ellie sings "something in the way you move, something in the way you do it"; it bears similarity of "love me like you do, lo-lo-love me like you do" as they seem to follow the same key however "Something in the Way You Move" upholds a different pattern.

Nevertheless, Goulding has stated that "Something in the Way You Move" was always a 'sister' song to "Love Me Like You Do".

Commercial performanceEdit

The song peaked at number 43 in the US, 51 in the UK, 46 in Australia, 56 in Austria, 97 in France, 70 in Germany, 62 in Ireland, 55 in Poland and 58 in Switzerland.

The song has reached over 32 million plays on Spotify so far.

PerformancesEdit

Ellie Goulding first performed the song on "TFI Friday" on the 27th of November, 2015. [2]

After that, on the 7th of December, 2015 she performed the song on "The Voice" while performing it again the day after on "The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show". [3]

She later performed the song on the 31st of December, 2015 to celebrate New Year's Day on the "Alan Carr Chatty Man Show". [4] On the same day, she also performed the song on "Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve".[5]

It was also heard in Goulding's episode, "Crazy Love" from the nature series, "Hello World!".

LyricsEdit

It's the strangest feeling
Feeling this way for you
There's something in the way you move
Something in the way you move
With you I’m never healing
It’s heartache filled with you
There's something in the way you move
I don’t know what it is you do
Now I’m knowing your body ain’t good enough for me
But this heart is open, bloodstains on my sleeve
When our eyes meet, I can only see the end
But tonight I meet yours again

But tonight I'm gonna lose it all
Playing with fire, I was the first to fall
Heart is sinking like a cannonball
Baby, kill me, what you waiting for?

Something in the way you move
It's something in the way you do it
It's something in the way you move
It's something in the way you move
It's something in the way you do it
It's something in the way you move

There's an evil night, the stars don't shine tonight, no
It's something in the way you do
It's something in the way you move
You bring me closer, further
Bring me just enough
Your lies always seem so true
There's nothing left for me to lose
There's not one thing I can do to change your ways
But I can't sit back and take the lonely days
When our eyes meet, I can only see the end
And tonight they meet yours again

But tonight I'm gonna lose it all
Playing with fire, I was the first to fall
Heart is sinking like a cannonball
Baby, kill me, what you waiting for?

Something in the way you move
It's something in the way you do it
It's something in the way you move
It's something in the way you move
It's something in the way you do it
It's something in the way you move

But tonight I'm gonna lose it all
Playing with fire, I was the first to fall
Heart is sinking like a cannonball
Baby, kill me, what you waiting for?

Something in the way you move
It's something in the way you do it
It's something in the way you move
It's something in the way you move
It's something in the way you do it
It's something in the way you move
