about

"I wrote the lyrics ETA at a time when I knew I was taking too long to commit in my relationship with Alanna, and it was my imagining what I might feel like in her shoes. The place we're trying to arrive in the song is the decision to stay or leave. This song is about the same period of time as our single, Middle Ground, but that one is me talking to myself, saying "you're going to do some heavier damage to yourself and her if you don't make up your mind soon"." - Joey Langlois, Lead Vocals, Guitar

lyrics

I remember you were bold
Making promises to me
Of an oasis far away
Worth leaving everything
So through the desert we would go
After ever changing dreams
Lose ourselves over the days
Will we ever find our place

But we both know where we’re headed
And we know we should be there by now
Now my heart is getting restless
Could you drop your act and spit it out

Give me your ETA
And be honest with me, I can find another way
Give me your ETA
Cause I’ll pick another place, I don’t want to wait all day

You made it sound like it was close
You knew the way like the back of your hand
I’m seeing now that I was wrong
To trust you again
I heard that tone before
When you say we’re a little behind
Running idle till we stall
Trying to buy yourself some time

But we both know where we’re headed
We know we should be there by now
Now my heart is getting restless
Could you stop my heart and see me out

Give me your ETA
And be honest with me, I can find another way
Give me your ETA
Cause I’ll pick another place, I don’t want to wait all day

And it’s not just that I’m restless
That I need to some room to stretch my legs
But you’re looking for perfection
All I wanted was a quiet space

Give me your ETA
And be honest with me, I can find another way
Give me your ETA
Cause I’ll pick another place, I don’t want to wait all day
Give me your ETA
Give me your ETA
Give me your ETA
Give me your ETA
