"Goodness Gracious" as written by Gregory Allen Kurstin, Nate Reuss and Ellie Goulding....
I lost the signal and put you away
Swore upon the sun I'd save you for a rainy day
Loosen the noose and let go of the rope
I know if it's never coming back it has to go

I keep callin' your name, keep callin' your name
I wanna hold you close but I never wanna feel ashamed
So I keep callin' at night, keep callin' at night
I wanna hold you close I just never I wanna hold you tight

Goodness gracious I can see the stars
Callin' me out, callin' me out just to keep crawlin' into your arms
Goodness gracious I can see the stars
Callin' me out, callin' me out just to keep crawlin' into your arms

I found the weakness and put it to play
Swore upon the stars I'd keep you til the night was day
Shake my head dizzy so I'll never know
You said if you're never comin' back you have to go

I keep callin' your name, keep callin' your name
I wanna hold you close but I never wanna feel ashamed
So I keep callin' at night, keep callin' at night
I wanna hold you close I just never wanna hold you tight

Goodness gracious I can see the stars
Callin' me out, callin' me out just to keep crawlin' into your arms
Goodness gracious I can see the stars
Callin' me out, callin' me out just to keep crawlin' into your arms

Ah, callin' me out just to keep crawlin' into your arms
Callin' me out just to keep crawlin' into your arms

Oh my goodness, here I go again
Pullin' you back to me, pullin' you back into my arms so selfishly
I don't think I understand 'cause I don't really know myself
I keep callin' you callin' you out
Callin' you out, callin' you out, callin' you out

Goodness gracious I can see the stars
Callin' me out callin' me out just to keep crawlin' into your arms
Goodness gracious I can see the stars
Callin' me out callin' me out just to keep crawlin' into your arms

Ah, ah, callin' me out just to keep crawlin' into your arms
Ah, ah, callin' me out just to keep crawlin' into your arms

    General CommentThis is direct from wikipedia: "Goulding explained the meaning behind "Goodness Gracious" to Rolling Stone, saying, "I've been in situations where I knew someone wasn't right for me, yet I kept bringing them back", adding that the song "is about dissing yourself for not thinking straight and not being fair."

    I love this song just because of the tempo and the feel... it sounds like that moment you realize you're free from that sort of toxic relationship.
