"The Writer" is the fifth track on Ellie Goulding's debut album Lights.

Goulding told Sky Songs: "The Writer is the most personal and emotional song I've written yet. It's about how you'd do anything and change absolutely EVERYTHING about yourself if necessary, just to be noticed by this one person."

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
