I'm ready

AS FAR AS MY MIND CAN SEE
LYING IN WAIT I HEAR IT CALLING OUT
TO ME
BUT WHICH PATH AM I TO CHOOSE
IT'S THE MAZE OF LIFE AND I'M ONLY EVER
GOING TO LOSE

I'M READY TO DECIDE
WHAT ROAD WILL LEAD MY LIFE
JUST CLOSE MY EYES AND JUMP RIGHT IN
WAIT FOR THE JOURNEY TO BEGIN
I'M READY TO MOVE ON
BEEN ON PAUSE FOR SO LONG
JUST CLOSE MY EYES AND JUMP RIGHT IN
WAIT FOR THE JOURNEY TO BEGIN

I'M READY... x 4


I PUSHED IT TO THE BACK OF MY MIND
NEVER BELIEVED
THERE WOULD COME A TIME
BUT TIME PASSES AND BEFORE YOU KNOW
YOU'RE IN THE PLACE
YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE NEVER
GOING TO GO

BATTLES LINES

i was yours and you were mine
before we drew the battle lines
it was you it was only you
but you got lost in the haze
somewhere along the way
it was you it was only you

so take your poison words
and swallow them whole
i refuse to let you hurt me
anymore

you made vows you could not keep
but you kept lying to me
it was you it was only you

so take your poison words
and swallow them whole
i refuse to let you hurt me
anymore
i will put up a fight
i won't be losing this time
so take your best shot and i'll hit back
with all that i've got


now we're over
will you accept you've lost the war? 
now we're over
will you accept you've lost?

TRUST IN ME - DIRECT, MR FIJIWIJI & HOLLY DRUMMOND

DEEP IN MY HEART
I HEAR YOU CALLING
BUT I WON'T LET YOU IN
I'M SO AFRAID
THAT I'LL KEEP ON LOSING
BUT YOU'RE WHISPERING...

TRUST IN ME
LOVE ME
OPEN UP YOUR HEART
AND LET OUR LOVE BEGIN
TRUST IN ME
AND LET ME IN

I'M GROWING TIRED
OF ALWAYS RUNNING
FROM WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR
WON'T LET THIS FEAR
TAKE OVER MY LIFE
NOT ANY MORE

FELL DOWN - TUT TUT CHILD feat. holly drummond

LOOKING BACK WHEN SHE WAS YOUNG
LIVING WILD AND FREE
HER LIFE AN EMPTY BOOK
FILLED WITH MAGIC MEMORIES

WHO IS SHE NOW
THE GIRL WHO FELL DOWN?


DREAMING OF THE WORLD
SHE USED TO KNOW
SO LONG AGO...


ALL THE STORIES IN HER MIND
THEY WILL NEVER GROW OLD
BRINGING COMFORT TO HER LIFE
AS NEW CHAPTERS DO UNFOLD

STRONGER

no one can save us now
the gates are open and the truth is flooding out
time after time you said
i made you feel something new
lie after lie you told
you made me believe in you

all this time we've been searching
searching for someone
someone to make us stronger
scared of being alone
we fake our love
but without you i am stronger


i don't want to save us now
i'm letting go of the weight that pulls me down
time after time i said
you made me feel something new
lie after lie i told
i made you believe in me too

 

NOT ENOUGH

when i look at our picture on the wall
it reminds me we were happy once
we thought our love could rule the world
but it was not enough
i wish that we could forget the days
those days when we called it love
so reckless with our words
but they were not enough

we were lost in our fantasy
our vision of the world
but all was not as it appeared to be
we were not enough


there were days when we thought it would never end
that things would never get tough
oh how naive we were
we were not enough

 

FADE

 

in all honesty i knew when i first saw you
that one day you’d be holding my hand
no twist of fate could separate
you from me
no…

we watched the fairies floating in the sky
we watched the light fade to dark outside
and i knew…
yeah i knew…
yeah i knew…

but love always burns
through everything
and we’re burning, burning
love always fades
into nothing
oh it fades out and fades in

can’t help but need something more
don’t know if i’m happy or just bored
are they one and the same?
am i the one to blame?

it feels like
we’ve slammed on the brakes here
i didn’t wanna say dear
but we’re running out of things to say
it feels like
we don’t wanna fill this silence no more

 

Diving In

 

i wanna go back and change every scene
every word that was said
just wipe our slate clean
but why rewind and try to pretend
we can’t fix who we are
what is broken won’t mend

but what if we’d waited instead of diving in
to something that never really did begin
what if we’d waited
what if we’d waited
maybe we wanted a little too much
jumped with our hearts not our minds
straight into love
what if we’d waited
what if we’d waited

why must be try and pretend
when we both know it’s over
oh it’s over
we’re dancing in circles again
playing our stupid games
but it’s over
oh it’s over


you’re tired of me and i’m tired of you
every word that you say
every thing that you do
but oh we tear each other to pieces
then we come back for more

 

EMPTY

 

take me down to a place
i don’t know
growing tired of these faces
that i know
i want to run away from here
and all i know
take my hand now won’t you dear
and pull me closer

i won’t worry about what tomorrow brings
’til i open my eyes

oh there’s an empty space
inside of my heart
and i’m trying not to fall apart
but it’s killing me
oh it’s killing me inside
i feel so lost
like i’ve got nowhere to go
this path i’m on
don’t feel right no more
and it’s killing me
oh it’s killing me inside

feeling trapped in this place
on my own
in need of love in need of comfort
from someone
i want to find my own way
in this world
but i lost all hope found desperation
i’m falling further

 

Cold Outside

 

you look at me like you’ve got something to say
i’m lying here and wishing things will
always be this way
pick me up put me down spin me around
hold me close and don’t be afraid
i fall for you more each day


oh your arms keep me warm
when it’s cold outside
you have your strong opinions
but I like that I don’t mind
you’ve no idea just who you are
or the way you make me feel
this is something new something real


you smile at me and i’m smiling back at you
you make it easy don’t need to think about
what to do
what to say when to say it
what to think when to think it
everything falls into place
with you


oh i’ve been a fool before
but i won’t take you for granted anymore

THE EDGE

you look at me
and i forget to breathe
time stands still
as you walk closer to me
your whispered words are all i hear
all the other voices disappear

now we're on the edge
of something new
do i turn back
or turn to you? 

don't stop me now
i'm breaking free
from all the fears
pulling me into misery
i'm ready now
to take the leap
loving you
is a promise i intend to keep


i built these walls
so no one could get in
when they get close
i build them higher again
but you make my mind feel clear
and all of my doubts disappear

 

FUTURE

the night calls to me
it draws me in
it's in the dark where we begin
i'm not afraid of what awaits
i'm not afraid to make mistakes

the future is unknown
it lies in wait for
the one who long ago
swore that they weren't scared of
breaking and falling apart
and losing control of their hearts


but you're in my mind
you never leave
could you be the one
to make me believe? 
i'm not afraid of loving you
i'm not afraid to lose

i'm over
always being afraid
so afraid that
i push them all away from me

 

LET YOU GO


we’re strangers in the dark
and in our heads
we’re lost for words they’ve already
all been said
round and round and round
we go
searching for the ones we used to know

 

do I wanna stay
do i wanna go
do i wanna push you out of my life?
cause i seem to feel
like there’s something more to this
something i need to find
you cannot control me
my feelings or thoughts
don’t wanna pretend that
we’re something we’re not
do i wanna stay
i don’t really know
if i should let you go

we don’t fit together like before
you say we’ve got it all but i want more
round and round and round
we go
strangers in this place we used to know

you cannot control me
you cannot control
you cannot control me
control...

 

SAVE YOU

 

i don’t know what to believe any more
the jury’s out on this one
closed the door
i never thought you were capable of this
but if i was wrong what else did i miss?

no i refuse to forget you
i wanna save you
the memory of who i thought you were to me
no i refuse to condemn you
i wanna save you

i don’t wanna believe there’s bad in you
but there’s whispers in my head
saying you’re no good
i don’t know what is truth
and what is a lie
but i never saw evil in your eyes

and after all of these years
you think i’d be certain of the truth
and after all of these years
why should i believe her over you?

 

Rules & Regulations

 

i'm feeling a little out of my depth
i'm feeling a little confused
you're the one who holds the answers
so i'm asking you what to do
about love
i'm not accustomed to relationships
all the rules and regulations
all the dos and all the donts
and i'm afraid that if i break them
i will lose you
i will lose you

and i die a little more inside
knowing that you're gone
and i die a little more inside
knowing that you're far far away
from me

and i need you tonight
and i need you tomorrow
no one else will do
don't need to beg, steal or borrow
cause i need you tonight
i'll still need you tomorrow
wherever you will go
know my heart will follow you

(follow you... whoa
follow you...)

the world don't appreciate
your green eyes
or your scent in the air
the way you look when you smile
if it was me i would just stare
at you

 

These Four Walls

 

hey girl what you waiting for?
you’re sitting around feeling down
yet you complain about being alone
you’ve built up some fantasy
you’ve only got yourself to blame
but these four walls won’t cure your heart
or fix your broken brain


you’ve built your walls
for someone to knock down
you’re waiting for someone
waiting waiting
you’ve lost yourself
and forgotten what it’s like
to love to live to feel to want to fight
but oh no don’t you see
you’re a walking talking tragedy


you’re still fixated on something that happened
eight whole years ago
you close your eyes
but the shadows torture your soul
you tell yourself you’re trying your best
there’s nothing more that you can do
but these four walls won’t cure your heart
or erase what’s haunting you

 

In the Dark

 

in the dark i see shadows glide on by
mind playing tricks
will i be caught out this time?
in the dark i am alone
with my thoughts and my fears
how am i to know
what is black from what is white?


please don’t wipe the colours from my mind
it’s getting harder to wake up
in the morning light
please don’t wipe the colours from my mind
we’re falling out of love
and we’re running out of time


in the dark i play movies in my head
mind whispers words
my courage never said
in the dark i wonder how
i lost all my feeling
how the butterflies
wept and turned to dust


and when the lights turn on
we’ll have lost it all
stone cold strangers
lost amidst the fall
so tell the sun not to rise
let us have today
pretending our love
never went away

 

Starting to Believe

 

they tell us stories
of the ones who fall in love
but they were never enough
to convince me
they play it out on TV screens
and force the word to believe
in their contrived little fantasy.


but now I know this feeling
takes over my soul
and lifts me off the ground
it breathes inside my lungs
and sees through my eyes
much to my surprise


oh no watch me go
i’ve fallen for you
i’ve lost control
i’m starting to believe in love
whoa
i know it’s silly but
when i’m with you it’s such a rush
i’m starting to believe in love
whoa


i went for years
without an inch of feeling
for any living being
who wanted me to feel
i found it hard to believe
that it could come so easily
when i least expected
you appeared

Stars

 

she sits on the corner of the road
bags at her feet no she’s not going home
she’s waiting for the one
who’ll listen to her say


take me to the place
where the buildings touch the stars
won’t you stay with me
stay with me
'til the sun eats the dark
show me all the things
that we heard about in fairytales
when we were young
and didn’t have a clue what we’d become


she wants to remember what it’s like
to have no fears no worries
just to live her life
she’s waiting for the one
who’ll listen to her say


so tell me why do we get older
can’t we stay like this forever more?

 

Girl That You Don't Know

 

i don't know how you make me feel
but I do know that I don't wanna feel it no more
how could I have been so naive
to think that we'd stay friends and nothing more?

i hear them all around
they're trying to pull me down, down
but I won't fall.

no you can't take what you want
or take what you see
cause baby I'm not yours
you may have a hold on my heart
but that don't mean
you can treat me worse than before
no I'm not coming back
don't you worry about that
i wouldn't sink so low
no i'm not your girl
not in this world
i'm just a girl that you don't know


the memories may still be here
but that don't mean they'll never disappear
i spent so long trying to figure you out
now I don't see what all the fuss was about

Out of my Mind

 

you pretend that you don't know
all the things that you did wrong
you did wrong
and now before me lies a ghost
all i loved went up in smoke
in smoke


and i don't wanna miss you
tonight, tonight
and i just wanna erase you
from my life
get you out of my mind


so take your words and set them alight
i may be down but you haven't won this fight
and i hate the people we've become
my heart still wants you
but my brain says run
just run and run and run

 

The Hands of Change

 

it scares me
how fast things are moving
everything feels different
but i can't tell what's changed
and the clocks oh
they're spinning in circles
i can only watch
the hands of change


and it terrifies me
the thought of what i could be
in 15 years or so
in 15 years or so
cause in my dreams
i'm singing to a crowd of screams
but then they're gone
and i'm all alone


i want to rewind
and play childish games
i'll chase you around
and call you names
cause secretly
you are the girl for me
and we'll hold hands
as we skip around the playground

Royalty

 

self assured with a lack of self control
never giving but always wanting
and wanting some more
you go through life
bringing down anyone who gets in your way
some think you'll conquer the world some day
but not me


you think you're so
oh so unique
but you lack originality
every time you speak
but what would i know?
there's nothing special about me
floating through life
doesn't make you royalty


talking louder don't make me wanna know
couldn't care less about all the hearts you broke
your lies i ain't believing
no me you ain't deceiving
no matter how many times you swear on your life


i can see it in your eyes
you don't know how to feel
i can see it in your eyes
don't even know what's real

 

FORBIDDEN

 

i know i try to hide it but you've seen me stare
i've heard that you're arrogant but i don't even care
the way you flick your hair makes me melt inside
your mocking laugh, the way you roll your eyes

 

but i say wait, you're forbidden to me
there's a line that we can't cross but we can't see
i say wait, before we do something we regret
there is a road to happiness we just haven't found it yet

 

i know you try to hide it but i've seen you stare
you say it's something about the blue eyes and red hair
and now I'm counting down the days until I see your face
to see where it leads us, this forbidden chase

 

and I know i've been warned but i can't stay away
from you

 

INTO HIS ARMS

 

i don't know why
i'm feeling so low tonight
if he was here
i'd fall into his arms and disappear
from life
but he, he only speaks
with his fingers crossed behind his back
and me, I'm holding on so desperately
even though I'll fall

 

but what are we? 
what are we?

 

won't someone warn me
before i fall, before i fall?
won't someone catch me
before i fall, before i fall
into his arms

 

words don't mean much
when you're a broken heart 
thrown out of love.
and they'll prod,
and they'll diagnose
try to find a cure
but it's no use

 

into his arms again
his arms again
and i know that he's lonely
but it's no excuse
we're playing with fire
and killing all that's good

WRECKAGE

 

i hear the clocks tick ticking
time is running out
but i need to see this through
so i can breathe
you like to think
that you own my mind
but you are nothing without me
without me


i hear that you've been
drinking kissing and sleeping around
oh you think you can do as you please
but who is cleaning up the wreckage
that is your life
cause you have nothing without me


but what gives you the right
to come crawling back to me
did you really expect me
to fall down to my knees?


you play your moves so well
i can't find fault
you weave such an intricate web of lies
you set your bait
reel them in
and into love
i see them go for it everytime


but you claim that i've got you all wrong
and that your little heart is not made of stone
you're daring me to look a little closer
at you

 

Free

 

people kept knocking
and knocking on my door
so we put a sign up
that read "she don't live here anymore
she left her doubts
she left her fears
and ran away
she left her worries
her insecurities
and ran away".


don't shoot me down
i want to fly
i want to break free 
from these feelings that tie
our hearts to the ground
they don't let us breathe
they suffocate me
i want to be free

 

the shadows they followed
and followed me around
they caused destruction
then left without a sound
i left my doubt
i left my fear
and ran away
i left my worries
my insecurities
and ran away


cause you ain't living your life
if what you do is a compromise
and you're only saying
what they want you to say
you hide from your thoughts
like they're filled with so much poison
you're going through life 
always afraid

 

WILL THIS EVER END?

 

darling won't you sit up and listen to me?
i've got something to say to you
but i'm far too shy for my own good sometimes
you make me feel like no one else can
cause you can do things no one else can do
but you

 

but oh darling, why won't you let me be?
oh darling, why won't you fall for me?

 

i'm tired of waiting around
i'm tired of feeling the same things
over and over, time and time again
yeah will this ever end?
and I'm tired of feeling like
everything i do just ain't good enough for you
but will this ever end?

 

darling won't you sit up and listen to me?
i've got something to say to you
but you're far too shy for your own good sometimes
cause every time that i ever see you
all you want to do is run away
from me

 

LIKE A FOOL

 

you hate the world
you hate everyone
wrapped up in self loathing
can't get through
can't get through
but you see your smile 
made me feel like
there was something
worth fighting for
but now i wish i'd never
fallen for you


but why didn't you
catch me at all?
but why didn't you
catch me at all?


you hate the world
you hate everyone
looking for a way out
you're so lost
oh so lost
but did you really expect me
to run away so easily?
like a fool
i kept waiting for you
