Lyrics

One Foot in Front

Written By: Anna Gillions

One foot in front

One foot in front of the other baby, just walk on by
Put your best foot forward honey, don’t even ask me why
I know we were having a conversation
And getting on just fine
But I feel you looking for a new sensation
And I’m not gonna cross that line
So I know you think you want me
But baby trust me
You’d get hurt by me

One foot in front of the other baby, just turn away
No looking over your shoulder now coz there’s nothing left to say
Maybe you were looking for the one
Who’s gonna set your heart on fire
But honey, that ain’t happening here
It’s just mindless desire
So I know you think you love me
But baby trust me
You’d get hurt by me

This bed ain’t big enough for the both of us
I take up too much room
I’d want to be the most important thing to you
But you’ll get no return
Coz I can’t give it

One foot in front of the other baby, don’t speak my name
Please don’t reach out to me coz I’m so scared I’ll do the same
And before you know it we’ll be skin on skin
And reaching for heart to heart
And then all the rows and bitterness
As we watch it fall apart
So I know you think you need me
But baby trust me

This bed ain’t big enough for the both of us
I take up too much room
I’d want to be the most important thing to you
But you’ll get no return
Coz I can’t give it

Breathe

Written By: Anna Gillions

In my wilder years
I’d swing from you
Swinging higher than high
I would use your superior strength
To send me up into the sky
No matter how many times I knocked you
You would always ring true
I believed in you

I can’t breathe
Without you here beside me
I can’t breathe
If you are not there
And if I leave
Wherever I find you there is air

As the evening cooled
Your limbs would warm me
Sending sparks into the sky
I would lean against you
And feel you so sure against my side
When I tired I would sleep at your feet
Knowing you would shelter me
Watch over my dreams

(chorus)

So I’ve come back home
To where you and your family stood
Arms entwined
But I find
That they’ve knocked you down
Replaced my world with a stone town
So I’ll leave this place
Keep on walking til I find your space

(chorus)
