Ellie Goulding - The Writer

You wait for a silence
I wait for a word
Lying next to your frame
Girl unobserved
You change your position
You`re changing me
Casting these shadows
Where they shouldn`t be

We`re interrupted
By the heat of the sun
Trying to prevent
What`s already begun
You`re just a body
I can smell your skin
And when I feel it
You`re wearing thin

But I`ve got a plan
Why don`t you be the artist
And make me out of clay?
Why don`t you be the writer
Decide the words I say?
Cause I`d rather pretend
I`ll still be there at the end
Only it`s too hard to ask
Won`t you try to help me?

Sat on your sofa
It`s all broken springs
This isn`t the place for
Those violin strings
I try out a smile
And I aim it at you
You must have missed it
You always do

But I`ve got a plan
Why don`t you be the artist
And make me out of clay?
Why don`t you be the writer
Decide the words I say?
Cause I`d rather pretend
I`ll still be there at the end
Only it`s too hard to ask
Won`t you try to help me?

You wait
I wait
Casting shadows
Interrupted

You wait
I wait
Casting shadows
Interrupted

You wait
I wait
Casting shadows
Interrupted

You wait
I wait
Casting shadows

Why don`t you be the artist
And make me out of clay?
Why don`t you be the writer
Decide the words I say?
Cause I`d rather pretend
I`ll still be there at the end
Only it`s too hard to ask
Won`t you try to help me?
Won`t you try to help me?
Won`t you try to help me?
