Poetry Friday: The Writer by Ellie Goulding

Current Mood: thankful
Current Song: The Writer by Ellie Goulding

You wait for a silence
I wait for a word...

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?
Because 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?

- selected lyrics from The Writer by Ellie Goulding

Watch the official music video for The Writer by Ellie Goulding.

...and yes, that's in 9/8 time. Isn't it gorgeous?
