"Under The Sheets" was the first single from Ellie Goulding's debut album Lights. It was released on 9th November 2009 and reached number 53 in the UK Singles Chart. The B-Side included with the song was Fighter Plane. The song is the fourth track on the album Lights. Goulding wrote this number with producer Starsmith (real name Fin Dow-Smith). She told the story of the song to BBC DJ Steve Lamacq on his Radio 2 show: "It came to be because myself and Finn decided we want to make a song, we're not even going to think about it. We sat down at the computer and suddenly Finn just came up with this drum thing and then a bass line and I came up with a vocal thing. It was one of those very rare moments that something just comes together without any kind of effort or any kind of thinking. It was probably the easiest song I've written, but actually when I listen back to the lyrics they are actually quite meaningful" "They are about a girl and a guy who are in a relationship but it's a very dark relationship in that its only based on being physical. Its not like a sexual song its more like shows that some relationships are based on nothing that is real, they are not based on something good. I've had that experience in my life, because you're trying to cling on to something that you know you're in denial. That's what the song is about in that you know the world won't bring us down, you can be as happy as Larry inside your house with your boyfriend or lover, but as soon as you step outside you're in the real world and you have to deal with it."

Under the Sheets - Ellie Goulding

Like all the boys before, like all the boys, boys, boys(x2)

You left your blood stain on the floor
You set your sights on him
You left a hand print on the door,
Like all the boys before,
Like all the boys before (boys boys boys boys)

This is our luck, baby, running out
Her clothes were never off
We still have hours to run about
To scale the map, scale the map, to get us back on track
I've seen you in a fight you lost,
I've seen you in a fii-ii-ii-ii-ght

(Chorus)Were under the sheets and you're killing me
In our house made of paper, your words all over me
Were under the sheets and you're killin' me

Like all the boys before, like all the boys, boys, boys(x2)

In here the world wont bring us down
Our plan is golden
Out there a lonely girl could drown
In here were frozen

Where did the people go?
My hands are empty
You're not the answer I should know
Like all the boys before, like all the boys before
(Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,)

[Chorus:]

Were in a mess baby, were in a mess babe
Your more is less babe (oh, oh)
Were in a mess baby, were in a mess babe
Your more is less babe (oh, oh!)

(Chorus)were under the sheets and you're killin me
In our house made of paper, and you're words all over me
We're under the sheets and your killin' me
(I've seen you in a fight you lost)
Like all the boys before, like all the boys before
Were under the sheets and your killing me
Our house full of paper and you're words all over me
Were under the sheets and you're killing me
(Oh you're killin me, your killin me!)

Were under the sheets and you're killing me
In our house made of paper, your words all over me
Were under the sheets and you're killin me
(Killin me, killin me, killin me)
Killin me, killin me, killin me
