Wedding Song Remake - Your Song by Ellie Goulding

Your Song is a beautiful ballad originally composed and performed by Elton John with lyrics by Bernie Taupin in 1970. In 2010, Ellie Goulding covered the song for the re-release of her "Lights" album retitled "Bright Lights". Ellie performed the song at the wedding reception of Prince William and Kate Middleton to which they shared their first dance. This version which features just piano and strings and some harmonies towards the end really draws out the tenderness in the lyrics and highlights the loveliness of the melody. As Prince William and Kate found, it would be perfect for a first dance.


Your Song

It's a little bit funny
This feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money
But boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where
We both could live

So excuse me forgetting
But these things I do
See I've forgotten if
They're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is
What I really mean
  Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

And you can tell everybody,
This is your song
It may be quite simple but
Now that it's done
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you're in the world

If I was a sculptor
But then again no
Or girl who makes potions in a traveling show
I know it's not much but
It's the best I can do
My gift is my song and
This one's for you

Ohh [x8]

And you can tell everybody
This is your song
It may be quite simple but
Now that it's done
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you're in the world
