about

About the one and only Amelia Earhart who really deserves a full double album to do her justice.

lyrics

19 hours is a while for the whole world to hold it’s breath
You rolled the dice a thousand times hadn’t stared down snake eyes yet

You could’ve been a castaway sleeping on a distant shore
Could’ve gone from safe and sound to a prisoner of war
Goodbye, Electra

A calculated risk, a monumental task
Failure was a question that no one thought to ask
Your talent for laughing off the impossible
Your ease for coming off as unstoppable

Could’ve been a castaway sleeping on a distant shore
Could’ve gone from safe and sound to a prisoner of war
Could have fell a thousand miles from blue above to blue below
The search party won’t stop until we know
Goodbye…

Burn the lights and break the clouds
Watch the skies, north to south
Send the signals burn the oil
Set down on the Howland soil

Could’ve been a castaway sleeping on a distant shore
Could’ve gone from safe and sound to a prisoner of war
Could have fell a thousand miles from blue above to blue below
The search party won’t stop until we know
You could’ve quit while you were ahead, beloved and slowly fading star
But if that was who you were you’d not have gone so far
Could have fell a thousand miles from blue above to blue below
The search party won’t stop until we know
Goodbye, Electra, goodbye

Burn the lights and break the clouds
Watch the skies, north to south
Burn the lights and break the clouds
Watch the skies
