about

First single from Elissa's upcoming album, "Piano Dust," to be released in Fall 2021.

lyrics

You left when I arrived
More than a French goodbye
More than a “see you then”

A tale of nights so cold
A tale of winter’s toll

But we were never friends

We were never friends
We were never friends

Unleash the barricade
Let’s call a spade a spade
Let’s call the angels to the stage

There are postcards to be sent
Before the main event

But we were never friends

We were never friends

Tell me why the big surprise
Destinations all arrive
At the same place you and I
You and I

Tell me why the big pretend
Come together sing amen

We were never friends
Never friends

Beach sand between my toes
The rocks behind remind
Remind us of the trend

We put our souls in you
But it was never true

But we were never friends

Tell me why the big surprise
Destinations all arrive
At the same place you and I
You and I

Tell me why the big pretend
Come together sing amen

We were never friends
Never friends

We were never
Never friends
