"Two Years Ago" is a song by Ellie Goulding that is featured on Goulding's third major-label full-length album Delirium. It serves as the last (third) bonus track from the Target exclusive edition of the album.

BackgroundEdit

The song was firstly confirmed via the September, 2015 Refinery29 interview with Ellie. [1] She stated:

"I have a song on the album that is called 'Two Years.' It's about two years ago, which is before I met my boyfriend. I'm really curious about him. He's my boyfriend, so I'll write about him and his past and the things he's been through. It's pretty amazing stuff and he's a pretty incredible person. It's so easy to write about because there's so many interesting things about him. But then, before that, you know, I went through a phase of being on tour and having a really hard time and not being home, and even just struggling with having a number one song. That was a time when I couldn't deal with anything. I was drinking, and I was not really myself. It's only when you come out of that phase you realize you were in trouble. Now that I'm not in trouble, it makes it more obvious just how close I was to losing it all. Luckily I never got to that point."

LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
Reaching higher than towers
Wasn't any war we couldn't win
We had unbreakable powers
When our bodies meet, it's everything
This was a beautiful vision
Even love was not a way you could describe it
And then there comes a collision
Nothing ever goes in the night

[Pre-Chorus 1]
And they're not lost forever
Lost what once was here
It's now just sparks
Now the fireworks are fading
Is it over?
Lost you in the summer two years ago

[Chorus]
You, you, you
I'm still thinking 'bout you, you, you
Two years ago
You, you, you
I'm still thinking 'bout you, you, you
Two years ago

[Verse 2]
If there's no storm, why're we a shipwreck?
Thought our love is insurmountable
He knows my heart is still aching
Never thought it would be caused by you

[Pre-Chorus 2]
We're not lost forever
Lost what once was here
It's now just sparks
Now the fireworks are fading
Is it over?
Lost you in the summer two years ago

[Chorus]
You, you, you
I'm still thinking 'bout you, you, you
Two years ago
You, you, you
I'm still thinking 'bout you, you, you
Two years ago

[Post-Chorus]
I'm wide awake and I can feel us moving on
Two years ago
There's a part of me that still believes that we belong
Two years ago
I'm wide awake and I can feel us moving on
Moving on, moving on, moving on

[Bridge]
And the reason I can't forget is I think you do too
I know you think of me, too
I'll use this moment to really forget
I will soon, but for now
I'm still thinking 'bout you, you, you
I'm still thinking 'bout you, you, you
I'm still thinking 'bout you, you, you
I'm still thinking 'bout you, you, you

[Chorus 2]
Two years ago
About you, about you
I'm still thinking 'bout you, you, you
Two years ago
About you, about you
I'm still thinking 'bout you, you, you
Two years ago

[Post-Chorus]
I'm wide awake and I can feel us moving on
Two years ago
There's a part of me that still believes that we belong
Two years ago
I'm wide awake and I can feel us moving on
Moving on, moving on, moving on
Two years ago

[Outro]
I'm wide awake and I can feel us moving on
There's a part of me that still believes that we belong
I'm wide awake and I can feel us moving on
Moving on, moving on, moving on
