Lyrics

Not My Fault

Written By: Ben Lee Tyler

VERSE 1:

well its a hard fact to face,
that nothing you say,
could ever stop me from going away.
And by the look on your face you now realise, you drove me out cause you never believed what l said...

BRIDGE:

Cause you listen to all your friends telling all those tales about me.
So, why don't you go away and follow all the rest of the sheep,
cause l won't lose no sleep...

CHORUS:

But now you're fading in the picture, you realise its hit ya
you got no-one to cry to anymore
but its not my fault...

So, now who are you gonna run to, to make them believe you, l was the one who drove you away
but thats not the case

VERSE 2:

You could of saved it all if you just listened to me tell you my side of the story, but you never believed what l said...

Thorn In My Heart

Written By: Ben Lee Tyler

VERSE 1:

There's a thorn in my heart that makes me bleed,
everytime that you say that its my fault.
So for once in your life won't you believe me,
cause I don't need to lie to you at all,
cause you're the one who's hiding behind the door.

CHORUS:

So take a look in the mirror,
take a glimpse at yourself and your life,
before you find the time to put down mine.
I'm sick and tired of smiling and grinning,
and making it look like you are winning,
all the time well thats just fine.

VERSE 2:

Find a new insult to make you grow,
it cuts deeper more than you'll ever know.
the flames still there but I'm in doubt,
it seems you'll try your best to put it out,
so from the start why didn't you want out of here

CHORUS

Strangers

Written By: Ben Lee Tyler


VERSE 1:

Why did you take the thoughts right out of my mind,
can't you stick to what you only find.
Instead of taking my lines all the time,
your eyes show your lies,
and the truth that you've never told.

CHORUS:

l can see that were strangers,
but your making me feel love, see love all the time.
In my mind can anybody try to save me?
From this love l can't believe in,
it just keeps on decieving me now.

VERSE 2:

You have got eyes like no colour found,
got a voice like no other sound,
But you just keep sending me back around,
what about some help here,
l can feel it tryna disappear.

CHORUS

BRIDGE

if you went away would l be alright?
Cause i've got to see you in my sights,
cause l want want you yeah yeah.

CHORUS
