The Writer
by Ellie Goulding



You wait for a silence
I wait for a word
Lying next to your frame
Girl unobserved

You change your position
Your changing me
Casting these shadows
Where they should be

We're interrupted
By the heat of the sun
Trying to prevent
What's already begun

Your 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
And decide the words I say?
Cause I'd rather pretend
I'll still be there in the end
Only it's to 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
And decide the words I say?
Cause I'd rather pretend
I'll still be there in the end
Only it's to hard to ask
Won't you try to help me..

You wait
I wait
Casting Shadows
Interrupted
(3 Times)

Why don't you be the artist
And make me out of clay?
Why don't you be the writer
And decide the words I say
Cause I'd rather pretend
I'll still be there in the end
Only it's to hard to ask
Won't you try to help me..

Why don't you be the artist
And make me out of clay?
Why don't you be the writer
And decide the words I say
Cause I'd rather pretend
I'll still be there in the end
Only it's to hard to ask
Won't you try to help me....
