"Connection" as written by and Justine Elinor Frischmann....
Riding on any wave,
That is the luck you crave,
They don't believe it now,
They just think it's stupid,
So got anything?
Anyone could have done,
Who would've cared at all,
not you.

Another heart has made the trade,
Forget it, forget it, forget it,
I don't understand how a heart is a spade,
But somehow the vital connection is made.

Riding on anything,
Anything's good enough,
Who would've thought it of
Someone like you,
Just as they brought me round,
Now that they brought you down,
Roundabout and roundabout
Who wants a life anyway?

Another heart has made the grade,
Forget it, forget it, forget it,
I don't understand how the last card is played,
But somehow the vital connection is made.

    General CommentI see the link with how this song could clearly be about a love connection, but to me its more about the sell out of being a music artist and how far people are willing to go and the passion some people have to make music in order to become famous.

    'Another heart has made the trade'
    Insead of creating music for pasison and creativity there trading their true love of music in order to make contempory, money making stuff.

    Although now reading it through again, it dosen't just have to be about getting famous through music, maybe the person shes talking about is an attention seeker willing to 'ride on any wave' to gain attention and fame.

    I think it's a great song, very catchy and Elastica were underrated.

    General CommentI think this song was somehow supposed to reflect Justine's relationship with Suede's Brett Anderson and her thoughts on his lyrics. After she started seeing Damon Albarn from Blur, she still remained within the band for several months and this - for obvious reasons- upset Suede and especially her ex (Anderson). In retaliation to the situation he wrote songs with lyrics directing to his heartbreak: Pantomime Horse, My Insatiable One etc.

    So after Justine left and founded Elastica she wrote about her thoughts on some of Anderson's lyrics and how she felt that he had been cashing in on his - eventual - fame. ( which, here, is conveyed in Connection).

    or the story went something like that...

    General CommentThis song is obviously about poker. It is from the perspective of someone who is gambling and playing every hand they get dealt. They often get all-in in very unfavourable positions, but are optimistic about hitting miracle cards to win.

    "I don't understand how a heart is a spade, but somehow a vital connection is made"

    They were hoping for a backdoor flush, but ended up turning a straight draw.
