"Eliza" as written by and Anna Margaret Michelle Calvi....
The lonely won’t hold me for good
Peaceful is gleaming she stood
To see her, to be her, to change
As if like a kiss we’re the same
So hold me up, hold me up
If only I could be you

Eliza
Eliza
Eliza
Eliza

My sister, my pistol below
If you could know all that I know
I’m falling, no warning, no way
Tomorrow, tomorrow’s too late
So hold me up, hold me up
I know that I could be you

Eliza
Eliza
Eliza
Eliza

So priceless and godless I wait
To leave this soul behind
Untangle the jangle of bells
They ring my fear through the night

    My InterpretationThis song is quite clearly about the desire to be somebody else; somebody who is stronger and more powerful than yourself.

    In terms of Anna, I think it's her desire to achieve the strength and power that she feels when she is performing, as she describes that performance allows her to access a part of herself that she cannot do on a daily basis.

    The relentless galloping of the drums and build up to that guitar solo and dramatic coda really elevate the yearning of the narrator to be this other person.
