Ellie Goulding - #Army "Army" I know that I've been messed up You never let me give up All the nights and the fights And the blood and the breakups You're always there to call up I am pain, I'm a child, I'm afraid But yet you understand Yeah like no one can Know that we don't look like much But no one fucks it up like us
