Lyric "The Writer"

[Verse 1-Ellie Goulding]
You wait for a silence
I wait for a word
Lie next to your frame
Girl unobserved
You change your position
And you are changing me
Casting these shadows
Where they shouldn't be

[Pre-Chorus-Ellie Goulding]
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

[Chorus-Ellie Goulding]
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?

[Verse 2-Ellie Goulding]
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

[Chorus-Ellie Goulding]
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?

[Bridge-Ellie Goulding]
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

[Chorus -Ellie Goulding]
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?

[Chorus -Ellie Goulding]
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 at the end
Only it’s too hard to ask
Won't you try to help me?
