Track Name: I'm Gonna Be
Oh Fear, I'm gonna slam you shut without a bookmark
Oh Fear, you're just a coward hiding in the half dark
Hoping I don't see you for the lie you are
Pretending you are me, but you're an imposter

When I, when I snap, when I snap my fingers
When I, when I snap, when I snap my fingers

I'm gonna be everything that I wanted to be
and everything that I was meant to be

Oh Fear, nobody's asking you to take the stage now
Listen Fear, the duet's done, it's time to take your last bow
I'm giving back the excuses “I'm shy” and “I'm nervous”
I will not let you strip me of my purpose
Just walk down the steps and out the door, I suggest you go quiet
I'm telling everyone who you are tonight, think you'll wanna miss the riot

When I, when I snap, when I snap my fingers
When I, when I snap, when I snap my fingers

I'm gonna be everything that I wanted to be
and everything that I was meant to be

I know it's not as simple or quick
As two fingers compressed to a click
But now I've heard it and my mind's clicked into gear
I have the choice, do I want you here?
We all got something that no one else got
I won't pretend to be you when I'm not
It's time to fight, put down your weaponry
Cos Love is fear's worst enemy
Track Name: Let's Not Talk
Let's not talk for weeks
let's just wait
till all those little waves
turn out to be the tide that took me away from you

Jaw tense
Knuckles white
as your words scrape nerves again
but I don't say it hurts

On guard
Body brittle
Two twigs in a queen sized bed
But I don't say I'm here
I don't say it hurts

Let's not talk for weeks
let's just wait
till all those little waves
turn out to be the tide that took me away from you

One look
Fuse lit
You explode before I can
but I don't hear a word

My pain
Hear Me
Ball up grudges shove them in my ears
As we yell each other down
But I don't hear a word

Let's not talk for weeks
let's just wait
till all those little waves
turn out to be the tide that took me away from you

Don't tell me you're drowning, can't you see that I'm drowning?
And I can't swim, what's your excuse for it?
Don't say that I've hurt you, we both know I hurt more
You're just malicious but I didn't mean to
Track Name: What You Made Me For
Just wanna know what you made me,
What you made me for
Track Name: No One
All around is dust and sand
one brick in each hand
And silence
as I stare at the horizon

I arrange them in a square
Take a breath and step
inside it
Sit and stare at the horizon

I sit and wait for you to show me how to build this room
But you don't come
No one comes

See a few more bricks outside
Make a rectangle
Kill time
Scream your name at the sky

Throwing sticks at copper clouds
Pacing up and down
I'm desperate
For the whisper of a footstep

Will I freeze to death tonight
when the sun goes down
cos I'm frightened
To act without your guidance

I sit and wait for you to show me how to build this room
But you don't come
No one comes

Get up. Gather... No one
Stand up. Sit down... No one
Stand on my head... No one
Pace up and down... No one
Shake the dirt off...
Shake the dirt off.
Track Name: Oh My Love
I arrive the ice sculpture of a girl
Cold, fragile, angry at the world
Stupid old world

Arms reach up and wrap around me
As I lay my head down on your chest
Down on your chest

I don't know how two arms can take my shoulds, my ought to bes, the tension and just melt it away
I only know I never want to leave, lie here perpetually. Let's just stay.

Oh my Love

Steam shoots up and out, a mushroom cloud
Where warm hands and words your breath and your smile
Touch my raw frozen skin

I don't know how two arms can take my shoulds, my ought to bes, the tension and just melt it away
I only know I never want to leave, lie here perpetually. Let's just stay.

Oh my Love

You melt me down and prevent a melt-down
A mushroom cloud but the danger's passed now
The frost won't cover the warmth that we've found
You melt me down and prevent a melt-down
Track Name: Other Side of the World
Starting to snow out there
Hard to deny I'm here
So far away from you
I'm on the other side of the world

You've got bare feet dipped in sand
Collecting a light tan
I'm dreaming of a towel next to yours but
I'm on the other side of the world

I'm breathing in and out
They call it living but I have my doubts
Floating in the foam
You'll find my heart on the shores of home

I'm learning strangers names
playing the small-talk game
I'm glad we were past all that
but I'm on the other side of the world

You're planning with a friend
to meet up for coffee next weekend
at the cafe we always loved
but I'm on the other side of the world

It's an adventure
A lonely, lonely adventure
I'm seeing landmarks
And all the things people put on postcards
The pictures they won't fit inside my phone
But the only one I want to see is
Home

I can't replace this place called home
I can't replace this place called home
There's a compass buried deep inside
my bones

I can't replace this place called home (There's no place like home)
I can't replace this place called home (There's no place like home)
There's a compass buried deep inside
my bones

And it's always pointing
Home
