lyrics

I'll admit
I am in disbelief
To find myself this naive
Hoping we might connect

Should just quit
Welcome the sweet relief
Cue up the leitmotif
Rather than be direct

Cause what's the difference between a whisper and a shout
When either way the secret's out?

So I hope we have both learned something
Maybe at least then we'd be well-equipped
As for me I'm disappointed
But what can you expect
It's all in the script

Out of time
Prayed for some great delay
Leaned in and tried to say
I thought you were beautiful

Maybe I'm bad at the grand display
But why sing a serenade
When nothing is mutual

It wouldn't be fair to say I wasn't being clear
Without considering maybe you just didn't hear

So I hope we have both learned something
Maybe at least then we'd be well-equipped
As for me I'm disappointed
But what can you expect
It's all in the script

With all due respect
It's just a mobius strip
What can you expect
It's all in the script

about

Elliot Caroll Toronto, Ontario

In the early years of YouTube, Elliot Caroll's hooky hometown ode "Songtario" was deemed "the next hottest video to race around the interweb" by BlogTO. Her self-described bedroom pop music eventually brought her to LA, where she was urged to pursue pop songwriting.

Elliot's debut EP features Kay Hanley (Letters to Cleo), Stacy Jones (Miley Cyrus, American Hi-Fi) and Chris Fudurich (Nada Surf).
