about

Displaced is the long awaited debut album by Elizabeth Cornish. The 11-track album is a collection of songs written over 6 years and touches on themes of transition, growth, overcoming barriers and moving on.

The album is in many ways the culmination of Elizabeth’s nomadic upbringing, having been written while packing and unpacking boxes, saying goodbye to friends and family and an array of different sceneries.

Displaced captures feelings of anguish, being torn between place after place and the loss of leaving people behind. Yet despite this, the warmth of hope and reassurance run throughout.

Displaced is an independent release and will be available on March 15th 2014.

Track Name: Tears With Tea
Burn these pages and clean your ears
Forget the past and lose your fears
Midnight tears over cups of tea
Let it out and trust in me

After everything I’m all you’ve got
Our wings are broken and our maps are lost
We’ve got a long way to crawl
No one’s listening for your call

Hold my hand and believe in me
Tear the threads that we used to keep
Scorch all the golden memories
And photographs
Forget the past

After everything I’m all you’ve got
Our wings are broken and our maps are lost
We’ve got a long way to crawl
No one’s listening for your call
Track Name: The End
This isn’t how I planned it
Sliding in and out of places
Feeling so in between
This isn’t how I saw us
Sharing our memories
Painful hugs and kisses between lies and deceit

This is a feeling we just can’t mend
You’re pushing me further and I just won’t bend
I think you can see, this is the end
I think you can see, this is the end

I’ve been reminiscing about all these painful hugs and kisses
You lied, I know you lied
Re-evaluating all these situations
I tried, I know I tried

This is a feeling we just can’t mend
You’re pushing me further and I just won’t bend
I think you can see, this is the end
I think you can see, this is the end
Track Name: Displaced
I’m uprooted, I’m displaced
My heart is torn between place after place
Between interesting and insignificant spaces
Indiscrete towns on borders and tucked in the creases of maps and in the corners of local eyes
That’s where you’ll find
That’s where you’ll find
The tangible sketches of my life

I’ve got no anchor tying me here
No overwhelming feeling pulling me down
Not born, not bred, I’m just roaming around
Not born, not bred, I’m just roaming around
This god forsaken town instead

I’m uprooted, I’m displaced
My heart is torn between place after place
Between ornate and understated spaces
Bright lit cities bustling with faces of strangers
and miles of exciting displays to explore and adore
That’s where you’ll find
That’s where you’ll find
The tangible sketches of my life

I’ve got no anchor tying me here
No overwhelming feeling pulling me down
Not born, not bred, I’m just roaming around
Not born, not bred, I’m just roaming around
This god forsaken town instead
Track Name: Harder
You love me down to the bone
You’re the only one who knows
You love me down to the bone
You’re the only one who knows

Goodbye is hard to say
Each year I slip away
A little bit further, a little bit faster
And your heart will gently fade
As I pull this cord away
A little bit harder, a little bit harder

And these ideas change,
These memories fade
But you’re holding on with open arms
Although I’ve grown you love me
right down to the bone
to the bone, the bone, the bone

Goodbye is hard to say
Each year I slip away
A little bit further, a little bit faster
And your heart will gently fade
As I pull this cord away
A little bit harder, a little bit harder
Track Name: Saint
Save me from my own escape
Save me from my stupid ways
Honey you’re always there when I need you
Waiting to take me home at the end of the day

I know I’m not the easiest patient
I know my faults like I know pain
But you stuck with me through all of this
Because honey you’re a saint

Honey you’re always there when I need you
Waiting to take me home at the end of the day
Because honey you’re a saint
Track Name: It's Been a Long Time
It’s Been a long time
I met you when the air was thin
It’s been a long time
It’s been a long time
We are warm and heavy and the clouds are thick
It’s been a long time since I heard you laugh like before
We’re both tired from the weight and no time to relax
It’s been a long time

I hardly remember the sound of your laughter
It’s just a fragment buried right at the back of my mind
It’s been a long time

I met you when the days were young
It’s been a long time
We used to have so much careless fun
No worries, no need to commit
It’s been a long time and I miss it

I hardly remember the sound of your laughter
It’s just a fragment buried right at the back of my mind
It’s been a long time
Track Name: Folds
You’ve been making plans
While I’m holding hands with fate
Won’t you wait for me
Please give way to me
Because I’m afraid
That you’ll go and I’ll be lonely
But we’ve both got our dreams
And we’re young

We’ve got years to flatten out these folds
There’s only one thing that I know
And it’s you, it’s you, I want to wake up to
Hold on tight, there’s no rush
We’ve got enough to contend with
And time is on our side my love
I would sacrifice everything I have
Track Name: Make Amends
You shoot your enemies
He shot his friends
Sometimes you can’t make amends
All your blood stained carpets
Will haunt you until you die
I’ve made mistakes, I’ve made a few
But never as many, as many as you
Track Name: Miss You
Sliding between the cracks
But my hands aren’t pulling you back
Confused and afraid but I know
I’ll still be the same if I stay or go
All of the words that I tried to say
And all of the tears that I shed on the way
All of these people I’ve left behind me

These choices we’ve made
Might just stain all the threads
And break all the bonds that we’ve sewn
I don’t want to be alone

All of the words that I tried to say
And all of the tears that I shed on the way
All of these people I’ve left behind me
And I miss you
Track Name: Above Ground
I’ve been trying my best to excavate my soul
Push all this heavy weight away from me
I’ve been trying hard to educate myself
To think in different ways, see new potential, and brighter days
Don’t judge me for my negativity and heavy hold on the past
It’s been a hard few years, but we’re above ground at last

It’s been a hard few years my god I’ve seen all of your tears
We’re above ground at last
Track Name: Not as Strong
These empty days face me now
These empty words hold me close
I’m not moving like I used to, no
I’m not feeling like I used to, no

Not as strong as I once I was, but getting close
Not as young as when I met you, but who’s to know
My confidence has not returned from since I fell
But honey I can tell you, I’m feeling well

Never quite hit the mark
It always seems so very far
These empty days face me now
These empty words just let me down

Not as strong as I once I was, but getting close
Not as young as when I met you, but who’s to know
My confidence has not returned from since I fell
But honey I can tell you, I’m feeling well

Honey I can tell you I’m feeling well as far as I can tell, as far as I can tell
