Lyrics

Slave
(Unreleased)

Tear out my eyes
Turn black the sky
Give me a reason not to say goodbye

I lay awake at night, all night
With my heavy eyes and my bones weak
And it shouldn’t be hard to fall
But I don’t wanna sleep by myself, alone

‘Cause sleep won’t come when you’re gone, sleep won’t come
I don’t wanna be a slave to my own home
I don’t wanna be here on my own
When you’re gone

Tie my hands and make me blind
Take me away from my mind
I need a reason not to fantasise

Nothing compares to your chest
Where I lay my head
And it shouldn’t be hard to fall
But I can’t sleep by myself

Oh no sleep won’t come when you’re gone, sleep won’t come
I don’t wanna be a slave to my own home
I don’t wanna be here on my own
When you’re gone

I know I will see your face and then all of this is gonna end
But soon I’ll know that you’ll be gone again

Oh sleep won’t come when you’re gone, sleep won’t come
I don’t wanna be a slave to my own home
I don’t wanna be here on my own
When you’re gone

Jaybird
(Unreleased)

I sang birds flying high
While the sun did shine
There’s no wrong in that
And no sin

And the jaybird it flew into the windowpane
Its broken body it fell to the ground
And its chest it did rise and fall three more times
But the jaybird won’t fly no more

Did you try to fly back to me darlin?
And found nothing but a cold pane of glass
Did you try to fly back to me darlin?
But the jaybird won’t fly no more

Shiver
(Unreleased)

As a lone whale died in the river she took a peek at the eye of the storm
And all the people on the banks began to shiver saying take me home
Take me home

And just as drink can lead to violence
The use of guns can lead to war
And when the dawn arrives upon us
Will you still be sure what you were fighting for?

Tell me why when young girls fly we let them go
And watch them walk out of the door?
Because they live their lives like each new day brings so much more
That’s why we let them out the door

And as a lone whale died in the river she took a peek at the eye of the storm
And all the people on the banks began to shiver saying take me home
Take me home
Take me home

All the things you hear that touch your heart
Can prepare you for your sorrow yet to come
But if we’re not careful
A blissful apathy so easily forms
And then no sorrow, fear, no joy, no tears, no lessons learned and no heart
Then no sorrow, fear, no joy, no tears, no lessons learned and no heart

I Know Your Kind
(Acoustic EP 2008, Here and Now 2012)

We’ve been talking for ten minutes or so
And now you’re saying you’re in love with me
I have been around enough to know you’re talking shit
You’ve got cocaine running round your veins
I know you’ve been saying things for effect

Yeah I’ve been around for a long long time
I’ve been around
I know your kind

You keep me chained to your side
And ask me all bout my life
But I don’t think you’re hearing what I say
‘Cause you’re watching my lips as I speak
And when I ask what you think
You start talking bout my pretty face

Yeah I’ve been around for a long long time
I’ve been around
I know your kind

You’re talking about the next time I see you
Well hold on mister, I think I’ll have a say in this too
I have been around enough to know this is just your spiel
Like ‘I’m the one you wanna see the world with’
‘The woman that you would like to bear your kids’
And all of that

Yeah I’ve been around for a long long time
I’ve been around
I know your kind

You get on up from your seat
Saying you wanna find me a drink
Whilst checking out that girl across the way
And yet you act all surprised
When I pull you to one side and say

That I’ve been around for a long long time
I have heard it all before
You’re not the first to knock on my door
I’ve been around
And I know your kind

Like A River
(Here and Now 2012)

I listen to a beautiful song
With a river running down my cheeks
And the music runs through me like shots to my heart
I miss you so

I’ve been alone before
I’ve had my heart broken
I’ve been thrown to the floor
And come back for more
And I’ve been fine

But the pain of losing you
It flows like a river
Cos I miss you
I miss you
I miss you
So

And the tempo’s changed
As that beautiful song comes to an end
And my river of tears gets reduced to a stream
As I’m thinking of how I’ve been sinking
Since I left you
Oh how I miss you

I’ve been alone before
I’ve had my heart broken
I’ve been thrown to the floor
And come back for more
And I’ve been fine

But the pain of losing you
Flows like a river
Cos I miss you
I miss you
I miss you
So

I’m listening to that beautiful song once again
But no river of tears will flow from my eyes I’m so tired
So tired

But still the pain of losing you
It flows like a river
Cos I miss you
I miss you
I miss you
So

Talk It Over
(Unreleased)

Brother, he talked to me to help to heal my heart
He said sister sit here a while and tell me all your woes
I said brother it’s such a long story, yeah this how it goes

You know my friend, yeah you knew him well
We fell in love for a spell
He took my soul and he made it clean
And he knew my heart oh so well
(And never before nor since have I known such joy)

Lets talk it over
Lets talk it over

Then came the day he changed his ways
He became a man I don’t know
Oh how it tore my heart to let him go
But I knew it had to be so

Sometimes I feel as though
I made a mistake, I should’ve stayed
I could have prayed for him

Lets talk it over
Lets talk it over
Lets talk it over
To heal my heart

Then came the man from the TV screen
He wasn’t half the man he seemed
Oh what is wrong with me?
Is it my lack of vanity?
Although he made me feel so beautiful
Just as soon like nothing at all

Sister you’ve begun to bare your soul
Now your head don’t hang so low
I will stay by your side
Here for you any time

To talk it over
Talk it over
To heal, to heal
Your heart
I wanna heal your heart

Something To Do With You
(Here and Now 2012)

Sunny days seep into moonlight
The ocean breeze it floats on by
As I breathe the air tastes soft and sweet
And endless stars light up the sky
Maybe, maybe it’s these foreign skies
That makes me feel, feel like I could fly away into the night
Well something is telling me
That maybe it’s got something to do with you
As we walk through these buzzing streets
I am riding on these ocean waves beneath my feet
I’ve got a brand new fire burning in my eyes
And I can’t help my lips when they dissolve into smile

Maybe it’s just three bottles of wine
That gave me all these butterflies I have inside
But something is telling me
That maybe
Ooh just maybe
It’s something to do with you
Oh these foreign skies
They seem to take me to a spiritual high
Maybe there’s just something in the air tonight
But just maybe it’s got something to do with you

So Nice
(Acoustic EP 2008)

You called me up in the middle of the day
Just to say hello to me
You asked me if I’d like to go for a drink that night
I said that might be nice
I got to the pub around a quarter past nine
Yeah I was a little bit late,
I didn’t think you’d mind
You met me at the bar and asked me what’s my drink
Then you pulled out my seat,
I thought that was really very sweet

Then we talked like we’d been friends before
Yeah we talked like there was an open door
Yeah we talked like there was always something else to say

You’re so nice
You like all the things I like
And I even like the look of you
You’re so nice
So I don’t know why
I’m just not into you

I didn’t know what to say when you called me next day
Though it was nice to chat,
I didn’t want more than that
Believe me I don’t wanna make you feel a fool
I still think you’re cool,
I just don’t wanna be your girlfriend

Lies, I can’t bear to tell lies
So let me look you in the eyes and say
You say such lovely things,
And I always like it when you ring me up
And now you think that I’m a tease,
But I’m simply telling you this like it is

You’re so nice
You like all the things I like
And I even like the look of you
Yeah I even like the look of you
You’re so nice
So I don’t know why
I’m just not into you

You say such lovely things,
And I always like it when you ring me up
And now you think that I’m a tease,
But I’m only telling you this like it is

You’re so nice
And I don’t know why
I don’t know why
I don’t know why
I’m just not into you

Fall Too Far
(Here and Now 2012, Audience of One EP-TBA)

I should travel the world
To find its most beautiful words
For sweet poetry, my love
Is all that should reach your ear
(If my mouth were to fill with the words
Of every story ever told
Still it couldn’t tell you
The things that you should know)

I would write sweet poetry
To show how deep you flow through me
But I
I would fall too far, I would fall too far, I would fall too far
Fall too far

I should travel the world
To find its most beautiful sounds
For the sweetest music, my love
Is all that should reach your ear

(Although a thousand songs creep into my mind
Not one of them could bear your name
They are all steeped in you but still they fall too far
I know you are more than words and sounds and stars and ground
And oh they fall too far)

I would write a symphony
To show how deep you flow through me (If only, if only I knew how)
But I
I would fall too far, I would fall too far, I would fall too far
Fall too far

How can I begin to describe how this feels?
I can’t help myself from falling deep
So hold me close, don’t let me go
I would hold you closer still

But I would fall too far, I would fall too far, I would fall too far
I would fall too far, too far, too far
Fall too far

Say So
(Acoustic EP 2008, Here and Now 2012)

I never feel the way I feel as though I should
And I feel as though you’re feeling that way too
So if you feel that way, if you feel that way
You should say so
Arms that once were warm are getting tired
Conversation leaves me less than inspired
My ideals of love still make me dream of a love so true
That it makes it hard to breathe
But I don’t think I feel that way for you
But if you feel that way, if you feel that way
You should say so

Someone had to say something some time
Don’t you dream of something more than just a simple life?
Oh I’m pretty sure you feel the way I feel
Whatever we once had lost its appeal, it’s time to draw the line

Oh, oh

(When all I have is your silence
You make it easy for me to decide this, is that fair?)
Make sure you don’t let something that you don’t say
Become what you come to regret some day
The end is no time to hold your head up so damn high

Oh and if you feel that way, if you feel that way
If you feel that way
You should say
Oh and if you feel that way, if you feel that way
If you feel that way
You should say so

Time (full version)
(Acoustic EP 2008, Here and Now 2012)

I was blessed with you angel for one sweet year
I spent the next six months trying to keep you here
One hundred nights beside you wondering where you went
I took another nine weeks deciding how to let it end
Though time moves slow, change it runs away
You have to learn to let it go

All that’s missing that I can tell
Is that version of you I used to know so well
And I don’t think that I’ve seen you around
In all the time that we’ve been in this house
Though time moves slow, change it runs away
Though time moves slot, change just runs away
You have to learn to let it go

The only thing missing in my world is you
And I, I haven’t seen you around
For as long as we’ve been in this house
So I think that I’ll
Take down these walls
‘Cause I don’t wanna cry for you no more

And if one day you find yourself at my door
I won’t turn you away
But now we have to let it go

If time is all it takes to make hearts mend
Let us take all we need to find ourselves again
Ten thousand nights without you wondering how you’ve been
I only needed a few weeks to learn how to be me again
Though time moves slow, change it runs away
Though time moves slot, change just runs away
You have to learn to let it go

Here & Now
(Here and Now 2012)

It was never gonna be too easy
When you decide to change your life, you choose to wear the scars
But if you’re looking back you choose to keep on bleeding
When you had no reason to stay, no reason to stay

Close the door, close the door, close the door
Cos there’s another one opening up on the next floor

Take a little time
Just let it breathe for tonight
You might find
You are already where you need to be
And you should just

Live for the here, Live for the now
Live for the here, Live for the now
Live for the here, Live for the now
When you let go of what’s gone, you’ll see all you need is here & now
Here & now

Every man is blessed with intuition
If you made the choice to change your life
Believe that it’s your path
When trepidation tells you you’re mistaken
Don’t run back again just because it feels safe

Close the door, close the door, close the door
Cos there’s another one opening up on the next floor

Open up your mind
Step into the light
You’ll be fine
You are already where you need to be
And you know you should just

Live for the here, Live for the now
Live for the here, Live for the now
Live for the here, Live for the now
When you let go of what’s gone, you’ll see all you need is here & now
Here & now

The Queen
(Here and Now 2012)

Now you’re The Queen
You had better make damn sure it makes you happy
Take a little bit more for free
Oh enjoy my misery
You have worked so hard for it girl, you deserve some glee
Take just one more bit of my dignity
Go on
You are The Queen

Oh rub your hands together
Lick your lips and make yourself feel better
Rub your hands together
Lick your lips and make yourself feel better
Oh, oh, oh

Woe this pain
Give me something to remember when I feel this way
Where does your hatred come from?
I don’t think I felt your blade
Slip between my blades
And did you ever take a look back
To see if I was bleeding?

Oh rub your hands together
Lick your lips and make yourself feel better
Rub your hands together
Lick your lips and make yourself feel better
Oh, oh, oh

You know it cut so deep that my friend became my enemy
It cut so deep that my friend became my enemy
It cut so deep that my friend became my enemy
It cut so deep

Oh rub your hands together
Lick your lips and make yourself feel better
Rub your hands together
Lick your lips and make yourself feel better
Oh, oh, oh

Higher Plane
(Here and Now 2012)

So now you want me to feel like yours
And like you are mine
You’ve been watching me like you’ve been needing me
Know you’ve been thinking of this, of me
Of taking me higher until I can’t breathe

This is much too wrong to be spiritual
This is much too hot to be spiritual
I am much too young to be spiritual
You are too damn fine to be spiritual

So as I speak in a different tongue I am feeding your fire
Oh you surrender to all that you burn for
And my body’s sinking beneath your need
I’ll keep taking you higher until you can’t breathe

Oh this is much too wrong to be spiritual
This is much too hot to be spiritual
I am much too young to be spiritual
You are too damn fine to be spiritual

The feel of your warm skin on my lips make me high
Said the feel of your warm skin on my lips makes me high
Oh you are not mine and I am not your
This isn’t right
But I can’t help my, can’t help myself tonight

This is much too wrong to be spiritual
This is much too hot to be spiritual
I am much too young to be spiritual
You are too damn fine to be spiritual
So take me higher, take me higher, take me higher
To a higher plane

Sing For Me
(Sing For Me single 2011, Here and Now 2012)

Let me hear your story
Let me feel your pain
Open up your heart and sing for me baby
I can make you feel again

When I sing oh
Let me make you feel again

I’m not a girl who gives her heart too easily
So I might seem cold
I’ve had my share of heartache
and believe me nothing makes me scared like this

Every time you turn away
It makes me crumble a little more no, no, no, no
You don’t need to be shy now
You know I want you
I want you

Oh
Let me make you feel again

Since you caught my eye there’s been a fire burning oh
If wanting me sets your soul on fire
All you have to say

Is you can make me feel
Can you make me feel?
And let me make you feel again?

Let me hear your story
Let me feel your pain
Open up your heart and sing for me baby
I can make you feel again

When I sing oh
Na, na, na, no, no
Let me make you feel again

Oh I can make you feel, I can make you feel, I can make you feel again
I can make you feel, I can make you feel, I can make you feel again
Feel again, feel again, feel again
Feel for me baby
