Today we find out that English singer Ellie Goulding, who was voted best dressed at the 2016 Grammy Awards on a poll on Vogue’s website, has a song on the album “Girls, Vol. 3 (Music from the HBO Original Series)” – the soundtrack to the fifth season of the HBO series “Girls”, which kicks off this Sunday, February 21st. The song in question is titled “Here’s To Us”, and we can find it in the fourth position of the album’s tracklist. Pretty incredible that we had had to wait till today, February 19tg – the day the soundtrack arrives in stores – to find out that one of the hottest artists in the music business right now, Ellie Goulding, has a song on this album, huh?
“Here’s To Us” is an almost-four-minutes long song that starts slow with a piano but which later explodes and we’re taken to Ellie Goulding’s uplifting synth-pop world.
The song is about Ellie reminiscing of a former lover, with whom she had a relationship that didn’t end in the best terms. She gave him all of her love, but he just gave it away. That man now has another woman, but apparently he is the one suffering now, for he believes that he hasn’t made the right choice (the right choice being Ellie, duh). However, instead of smiling at the poor man’s suffering, Ellie gives him some support by saying that although they’re both not at their best mind-wise, for it seems they both still have feelings for each other but have realized they just can’t be together, everything will be OK soon, and they’ll be able to re-do their lives in peace if they let time pass. “But here’s to us, here’s to us, here’s to us / yeah, this is just a phase, pretty sure of that”, sings Ellie in her ““Girls, Vol. 3” album song. / Source: directlyrics.com
