Lyrics

SO LONG

Written By: ©Hannah Donald / Luke Oram / Evan Cooper

Waiting for so long
Waiting for far to long
I’m all but jaded
Still open handed

Can almost feel it
When your hand is next to mine
Eyes like stars
Just a little faded

Over again, over again
I feel so far from freedom
Over again, over again
I’m counterfeiting

If you find me open
Would you take me over
And stop this waiting
I’m running after
Till you find open
And take me over
To stop this waiting
My hope is falling down

Couldn’t resist it
Feel so over taken
Bound by journeys
That move in circles

If I walk out here alone
I will not walk forsaken
If you find I’ve acrossed the line
Will I be forgiven

SYMMETRY

Written By: ©Hannah Donald / Luke Oram / Evan Cooper / Mark Donovan

Cold hands in January sun
Face smeared from the tears she's begun
Words have found her wounds again
Will she ever repair?

All our good intentions carried us so far
Incapable of changing who we are
Caught up waiting for the old to turn to free
How can we be in this Symmetry

Lost time that can’t be replaced
Too ashamed he can’t speak the words
Over and over his faults again
Will he ever declare?

All our good intentions carried us so far
Incapable of changing who we are
Caught up waiting for the old to turn to free
How can we be in this Symmetry

I wish I’d seen your pictures in the stars
At least I should have felt it in my heart
How can all this pain be meant for me
Why are the tears still falling down, down, down

THINKING OF YOU

Written By: (C) Ivan Beets & Glen Rowe

I’m just sitting; you’d think I was waiting for the rain
In all these strangest days
You know a like to sometimes I try to
Slip away and see you
Cos sometimes everything can go
In a fall down, kinda break down sorta way
But here before you where I adore you
I’ll fall into your world

I’m just thinking of you
Your world consumes me
I’m just thinking of you
I’m taken by what you say
I’m just thinking of you
I’m just thinking of you

Helicopter brain
Instead of thoughts I want to think
So come on and rain down
Can’t stop my dreaming, more than a feeling
You have changed my world
I now I know for sure
Things will get crazy but never hazy in my life
But here before you my dreams all come true
I’ll fall into your world

I’m just thinking of you
Your world consumes me
I’m just thinking of you
I’m taken by what you say
I’m just thinking of you
I’m just thinking of you

Use to feel like a lonely, lonely, lonely day
Thought I was doing ok
Now I realise I was waiting for my heart to break
Wasn’t looking for you but you found me
And you love me like the sunlight
You are everything

And I’m thinking of you
Your world consumes me
I’m just thinking of you
I’m taken by what you say
I’m just thinking of you
I’m just thinking of you
