Ellie Goulding – Slow Grenade. An exclusive live performance for Vevo. Taken from the album Brightest Blue

You could spot it from the get-go. Listening to Ellie Goulding’s 2010 debut ‘Lights,’ and watching her move through initial vids such as “Guns and Horses” and “Starry Eyed,” it was obvious that the UK singer was going to connect deeply with fans around the world. The fact that ‘Lights’ clocked in at the top of the UK pop charts was proof that listeners found it irresistible. Ellie’s success has unfolded wonderfully, of course, and after a decade of hits – including “Love Me Like You Do,” “Anything Could Happen,” “I Need Your Love” and more – she has just released the album she calls “closest to my heart.” ‘Brightest Blue’ is divided into two sections, the title suite, which she says has “a sense of accepting fate, and therefore feeling better for it and not worrying about the future,” and the EG.o section, which presents an “alter ego” who takes on the world and has “no fear whatsoever.” Our Original Live Performances of the new songs are splendid looks into to Ellie’s current world. “New Heights” and “Brightest Blue” were shot with the remarkable XR “mixed reality” technology, which seamlessly mixes actual camera footage with CGI content in real time. The visuals are remarkable. Check out her new record, share our performances and see where Ellie’s at right now.

Lyrics

Help me, my God this got messy
Least I got the best seat,
‘cos we put on one hell of a show
Waiting, I just keep on waiting
For the final curtain,
‘cos I just can’t let go of your love

Oooh
You say name like you know my dark side ooh
Can’t beat the taste of the tears that I’ll cry ooh

Slow grenade it’s blowing up my mistakes
So why don’t I, why don’t I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It’s like a part of me is must want it
That’s why I’m not running from it
Can’t escape this blowing up
In my face so why can’t I
Why can’t I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It’s like a part of me must love it
That’s why I’m not running from it

Crazy, late nights in the city
Drink until you hate me
Then say that I should just let you go
But hold on, why do we still hold on?
Think that we should move on
But we’re too scared of being alone

Oooh
You say name like you know my dark side ooh
Can’t beat the taste of the tears that I’ll cry ooh

Slow grenade it’s blowing up my mistakes
So why don’t I, why don’t I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It’s like a part of me is must want it
That’s why I’m not running from it
Can’t escape this blowing up
In my face so why can’t I
Why can’t I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It’s like a part of me must love it
That’s why I’m not running from it
(Oooh)

Why can’t I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It’s like a part of me must love it
That’s why I’m not running from it

Help me, my God this got messy
Least I got the best seat
‘cos we put on one hell of a show

Slow grenade it’s blowing up my mistakes
So why don’t I, why don’t I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It’s like a part of me is must want it
That’s why I’m not running from it
Can’t escape this blowing up
In my face, so why can’t I
Why can’t I stop it?
Still got time for me to stop it
It’s like a part of me must love it
That’s why I’m not running from it
(Oooh)

Why can’t I stop it?
Still got ti…
