(+LYRICS+MEANING+TRANSLATION) MUSIC REVIEW” SIXTEEN BY ELLIE GOULDING “I DON’T EVEN KNOW IF THIS PERSON IS A BOY OR A GIRL?’

IG @ ogefashblog

So, I am wondering if the person in the picture below is a boy or a girl. View here

Any idea? kindly let me know…

So, about the song ‘Sixteen” by Ellie Goulding. In the song, the artiste still has good of her relationship when she was younger. She reminisced on the good times she had with her lover when they were much younger; 16 precisely. They were so wildly in love that no one could control them. Their love was so profound that even their teacher was scared for them and advised them not to lose their head all in the name of love.

Ellie wished she could have those good experiences back as it seems she is not. They are both older now and hardly have time for each other. They do not spend quality time with each other again. This is because they are both occupied with the works of life or simply say they are too busy and can’t create enough time to be with each other anymore unlike when they were much younger and were always around each other.

View the lines below that show that they hardly see each other

“Suddenly, we got no time
We’re so busy doing life
That I miss your eyes on mine, mine”

Take a gander at the lyrics below

LYRICS TO SIXTEEN BY ELLIE GOULDING

INTRO

Like we were sixteen; when we were very young (2x)

VERSE 1

Do you remember when we moved out?
My mum said, “I love you, but it’s a small house”
So we changed up and saved up
Gave up our town
We were dangerous, couldn’t tame us
What’s missing now?

Time
Suddenly, we got no time
We’re so busy doing life
That I miss your eyes on mine, mine

PRE CHORUS

If you’d just focus on me
Like we were sixteen
And planning our lives
Can I wear your t-shirt
And sleep on you
While I dream of all the good times?
When we were sixteen

CHORUS

Like we were sixteen; when we were very young (4x)

Like we were sixteen

VERSE 2

Do you remember the teacher said
“You’re too young, too stupid, don’t lose your head”
But years gone and we held on with the best intent
Just two kids who kicked it on MSN

Oh, time
Suddenly, we got no time
We’re so busy doing life
That I miss your eyes on mine, mine

PRE CHORUS

Oh, if you just focus on me
Like we were sixteen
And plotting our lives (When we were plotting our lives)
Can I wear your t-shirt
And sleep on you
While I dream of all the good times?
When we were sixteen

CHORUS

Like we were sixteen; when we were very young (2x)

Like we were sixteen

Like we were sixteen; when we were very young (2x)

Like we were sixteen

OUTRO
Let’s take the love that we found
And give it back to ourselves
Sometimes these things don’t work out
Sometimes there’ll be no one else
They said we’d never even make it this far
But here we are
And we’re still counting stars
Like we were sixteen

Like we were sixteen; when we were very young (2x)

Like we were sixteen

Like we were sixteen; when we were very young (2x)

Like we were sixteen (We are still counting stars)

Like we were sixteen; when we were very young (2x)

Like we were sixteen (We are still counting stars)
