Guns and Horses (3:36)

Cover of Bright Lights

From Bright Lights and 6 other releases

“Guns And Horses” was the third single from Ellie Goulding’s debut album Lights. It was released on 17th May 2010. The song is the first track on Lights.

Goulding told Sky Songs about this tune. “I wrote Guns And Horses about a romance that began online. I wanted the guy to feel more than he did for me but through no fault of his own he couldn’t. It’s a song about frustration essentially. My producer made me laugh at the end, I can’t repeat what he called me though.”

    Yes @JimmyAndMe, even several years later, this song still does my head in. I hate the way that she sings "if i could erAAYZZZE the pain, maybe you'd FEEEEL the same"

    Only thing I hate about this song is when she says "feel (the same)" and it's so high pitched I imagine the sound just goes straight through me, and probably through the walls behind me too, until it's outside, and then I imagine somewhere in the distance a cat on the streets stops in it's tracks as Ellie's voice hits it suddenly like a stick hitting someone's head, and it's fur stands up, and it gets scared. And then a kid with an ice cream stares at the cat like it's something out of a cartoon. He drops his ice cream. And screams. Moral of the story= don't listen to this song if you're tired and have a headache.
