a few of you have asked me for song lyrics so here they are! xo

Verse 1
Travelling on
With an open heart
And a broken indicator but they
Told me back on the lot that she’ll see it through

If all that we are is a house of cards
And a building made of papier maché
We’d better go ask the Architect what to do

Pre-Chorus
You put your hands up for the weekend
They come down on the Sunday nights
Then five more till we’re reaching
Back up to the Friday sky

Chorus
We’re never too far from home
Never too old to throw the top down on the road
Baby let’s drive away from here.

And you’re still the only one for sure,
No matter where we are,
The car, the journey start, let’s go
Baby and drive away from here

Verse 2
And when it's over
We will look back there
To a picture framed in the gallery
Of you and then I deciding on what to do.

So Navigator
I would much prefer that we
Did this trip the old-fashioned way
The Internet age, replaced the days we once knew

Pre-Chorus
Hands up for the weekend
But they come down on the Sunday nights
Then five more till we’re reaching
Back up to the Friday sky

Chorus
We’re never too far from home
Never too old to throw the top down on the road
Baby let’s drive away from here.

And you’re still the only one for sure,
No matter where we are,
The car, the journey start, let’s go
Baby and drive away from here

Bridge
Up on the highway
On to a better place
One where nobody knows our names and you
Don’t care what I did
Never was one to blame
We’re not a sum of our mistakes

Chorus
Cause we’re never too far from home
(We’re) Never to old to throw the top down on the road
Baby let’s drive away from here.

And you’re still the only one for sure,
No matter where we are,
The car, the journey start, let’s go
Baby and drive away from here


Verse 1
Take heart my broken heart
Don’t bleed, 
Don’t turn to stone and sink below the deep beneath
Find soul, my wounded soul, don’t freeze
Or sell yourself to someone else for dirt cheap
Carry on, carry on, carry on
Though the pain it goes 
To eternity and beyond

Chorus
But it’s better to love, 
And better to try
It’s better to hurt with all you are, than live a lie 
It’s better to feel 
And better to breathe even though every breath cuts deep
It’s just better
It’s just better 

Verse 2
Be strong, my weakened strength be strong
Bear up the weight, of expectations unresolved 
Don’t mind, astonished mind, don’t mind 
Before your eyes, the truth resided all the time 
Carry on, carry on, carry on.
Thought the rain you feel, 
Is everything you fear all at once

Chorus
But it’s better to love, 
And better to try
It’s better to hurt with all you are, than live a lie 
It’s better to feel 
And better to breathe even though every breath cuts deep
It’s just better
It’s just better


Bridge
Endure the broken promises
See what was broken can be fixed
It won’t stay, it won’t stay like this

Chorus
So it’s better to love, 
And better to try
It’s better to trust though you don’t have a reason why 
It’s better to feel 
And better to breathe even though every breath cuts deep
It’s just better
It’s just better 
It’s just better 
It’s just better
Verse 1
Not gonna lie today I feel pretty useless
This mad thing called life riddle me how you do it 
Oh my great potential, it all seems so fruitless
Not hit what I’m aiming for but I’m improving

Pre-chorus
And deep down, I know
And deep down, I’m sure
That there is something that won’t ever, ever break
So breathe in again
And breathe once more
Use the oxygen to wash away the pain 

Chorus
When the world is full of people who you think are better than you it’s a sad time 
But the world is full of people who are as human as you and you will be fine
You will be fine 

Verse 2
Another day, I’ve been through 
But I made it 
The goal posts, anyway, they are all changing 
No re-runs in this life, it’s improvisation
For the audience of one 
My own expectation 

Pre-chorus
And deep down, I know
And deep down, I’m sure
That there is something that won’t ever, ever break
So breathe in again
And breathe once more
Use the oxygen to wash away the pain 

Chorus
When the world is full of people who you think are better than you it’s a sad time 
But the world is full of people who are as human as you and you will be fine
You will be fine 

Bridge
So I put my hands up, don’t shoot me 
Because I dare to dream
I’m a little fish in a big river
But I still swim upstream 
A million blank pages
The word will be my song
A never ending story,
A letter to the lost 

Chorus
When the world is full of people who you think are better than you it’s a sad time 
But the world is full of people who are as human as you and you will be fine
You will be fine
Verse 1
I don’t want your love
And I don’t want your time
I just want your honesty
Right hand to the sky

Don’t give me the world
Cause I stay on my grind
Even if it’s what’s meant to be
We still got to fight

Chorus
And so if we take one step
In front of the other then
Maybe we can go somewhere incredible
Disregard the arguments
Good old-fashioned common sense
We are under God, all men, all fallible
But it’s incredible.

Verse 2
And nothing at all
Is promised today
Apart from my everything
In every way
So don’t screw with my heart
It don’t bend or break
But is damn near impossible
To re-ascertain

Chorus
And so if we take one step
In front of the other then
Maybe we can go somewhere incredible
Disregard the arguments
Good old-fashioned common sense
We are under God, all men, all fallible
But it’s incredible

Bridge
Innocent, ignorant,
We did not
Know what it takes
What did it cost
Eyes are wide
Hearts alight

We are alive
And we are serial wanderers
Oh Son of God have pity on us
To the sky
Testify
We are alive

Chorus
And so we’ll take one stem p
In front of the other then
Maybe we can go somewhere incredible
Disregard the arguments
Good old-fashioned common sense
We are under God, all men, all fallible
But it’s incredible
Verse 1
You take one step
And I’ll take mine
You take two left
So I go right, see
You know the answer to
All of my questions, you
Don’t leave me hanging
Don’t keep me guessing 

Pre-Chorus
So why, why, why,
Why do I keep on running,
This crazy life
When a home my heart has found I’ll

Chorus
Let your light shine bright on me love,
Won’t fight, I’ll take it up
Maybe it’s about time
That we stopped
Living our separate lives
Let your light shine bright and I think I’ll find
Another reason I cannot hide 
From this strong leading I have it’s right.
That I’m getting to know you

Verse 2
Won’t hold my breath, if we capsize
No I don’t swim
I guess I’ll try to
To walk the water
To leave the dry land and
Ill flood the border
See the horizon

Pre-Chorus
So look outside
Cause I know this life is worth something 
And let’s live right
Even though we came here with nothing

Chorus
Let your light shine bright on me love,
Wont fight, I’ll take it up
Maybe it’s about time
That we stopped
Living our separate lives
Let your light shine bright and I think I’ll find
Another reason I cannot hide 
From this strong leading I have it’s right.
That I’m getting to know you

Bridge
And what do they call this love we’ve found
It’s called a good thing
Look at what we have now,
I think it’s called a good thing
So don’t rewind
Don’t fast forward
Just be home here
In this moment I’ll

Chorus
Let your light shine bright on me love,
Won’t fight, I’ll take it up
Maybe it’s about time
That we stopped
Living our separate lives
Let your light shine bright and I think I’ll find
Another reason I cannot hide 
From this strong leading I have it’s right.
That I’m getting to know you
You have an old heart
And a new beginning.

You have an old heart
And a new beginning
You haven't always 
Been so cold, so unsure
You had a long walk
And your legs are tired
Wondering how in the hell you wound up here.
Verse 1
(Oh) This’ll be my own little secret
I won’t let anybody know 
Only mama, only daddy and the preacher
Pack my bags and go
Take a plane, take a train and my freedom
It’s something deep inside my soul
Who am I to deny where it’s leading 

Pre-Chorus
Don’t know but I know somehow 
If you’re the future wanna start it now 

Chorus
I don’t know where I’m coming from
I don’t know where I’m going either 
All I know is that we’ve only just begun 
I don’t know how to navigate 
Let’s take it slow, keep it super secret 
All I know is we’re moving towards the Sun, 
And that we’ve only just begun


Verse 2
Undecipher, as if I were encoded
Does anybody even know
Why if I am a hand, you can hold me,
But we are much more
We are one, we are young, we are chosen
This has never happened before 
For the ground that we walk is unbroken

Pre-Chorus
Don’t know but I know somehow 
If you’re the future wanna start it now 

Chorus
I don’t know where I’m coming from
I don’t know where I’m going either 
All I know is that we’ve only just begun 
I don’t know how to navigate 
Let’s take it slow, keep it super secret 
All I know is we’re moving towards the Sun, 
And that we’ve only just begun

Bride
Untangle every single little one of your emotions
Unravel in-between the lines of my devotion 
We’ll leave it all behind, let’s set this into motion
And we are unrelenting, we will see the ocean

Chorus
I don’t know where I’m coming from
I don’t know where I’m going either 
All I know is that we’ve only just begun 
I don’t know how to navigate 
Let’s take it slow, keep it super secret 
All I know is we’re moving towards the Sun, 
And that we’ve only just begun

Verse 1
There's something beautiful about the way you walk,
Like with each step you're moving closer to the centre of my heart.
Don't get me started on the colour of your hair,
Or how the day just seems to fade into a grey when you're not there,
When you're not there.

Chorus
I wrote a song for you today,
One to explain the way I feel inside,
Words don't articulate or paint the picture
I need you to see,
They always seem to fail me.

Verse 2
There's something magical behind your very eyes.
A fire that's fuelled by the expanse of twenty million star-lit nights
I listen to the melody within your soul
And feel your heart is beating with a rhythm I have come to know
A rhythm that I know

Chorus
I wrote a symphony today,
With many instruments to fill the air with sound
But I don't know where I can find the chord to sing what's in my heart
It's not on my guitar

I wrote a song for you today
Calligraphically across the page
My finest work by way of the
Definition, magnum opus, masterpiece would never be enough
If you do believe in love
Verse 1
No lie, words on my lips my, tongue like
Stroking my ego, my pride
Do it for me all the time 
Bone dry and water won’t offer respite 
And nothing I say will rehydrate my desert soul to life

You can be trouble, I can be trouble, 
Baby let’s start the war
You could be faithful, I can be humble 
We do it like they did before 
Conversational, cards on the table 
Poker face out the door
So make a decision, what’s your ambition, tell me what you’re good for

Chorus
Cause it is, what it is,
There’s no need to talk about it 
Won’t do it, or you will
But there’s no need to talk about it
No need to talk anymore 

Verse 2
So done, see my defences all gone,
I’d rather be hurt than feel numb
So hit me with it love, come on
Oh my, run for the hills or don’t cry
But if you want this, I’ll oblige 
We could be worth the fight 

You can be trouble, I can be trouble, 
Baby let’s start the war
You could be faithful, I can be humble 
We do it like they did before 
Conversational, cards on the table 
Poker face out the door
So make a decision, what’s your ambition, show me what you’re good for

Chorus
Cause it is, what it is,
There’s no need to talk about it 
Won’t do it, or you will
But there’s no need to talk about it
No need to talk anymore 

Bridge
If this is for you, 
you know who you are, 
you know what to do

Chorus
Cause it is, what it is,
There’s no need to talk about it 
Won’t do it, or you will
But there’s no need to talk about it
No need to talk anymore
Verse 1
In the mirror, thinking about yesterday
And things up off my chest I don’t want to say
I wonder if this is how it’s going to be 
No illusions, this is reality 

Pre-chorus
And every moment, I don’t want to go
Something inside me says I told you so
And every moment I don’t want to leave 
Love good loving, that is good to me 

Chorus
So I think that I’m falling for you
Think that I’m falling so hard
Did it from an altitude and I fell without a parachute
So now, pick up the pieces would you
Reach the conclusion that I 
Want to spend my time with you
And I wouldn’t say no if you asked me to 

Verse 2
All the while, I knew that this day would come 
Got me looking at my watch, unpredictable
And time is only good for the setting sun,
Cause you see my heart, it don’t wait for anyone 

So tell me where you think we’re going to go
Tell me baby, cause I need to know 
And tell me if you’re think you’re going to leave
Love, good love, real love is good to me 

Chorus
So I think that I’m falling for you
Think that I’m falling so hard
Did it from an altitude and I fell without a parachute
So now, pick up the pieces would you
Reach the conclusion that I 
Want to spend my time with you
And I wouldn’t say no if you asked me to 

It’s a laughable state of nature
What a foolish way to live
To be happy self-sacrificial
For the benefit of this 

Chorus
But I think that I’m falling for you
Think that I’m falling so hard
Did it from an altitude and I fell without a parachute
So now, pick up the pieces would you
Reach the conclusion that I 
Want to spend my time with you
And I wouldn’t say no if you asked me to 

Said I wouldn’t say no, if you asked me to
