Lyrics

Save Your Soul

Written By: Jenna Colquhoun

You lost yourself today,
And you were on your way,
To the other side where lies to path to endless days alone.
You hold on tight to whats left
And then you breath your last breath
You raise your hands and scream loud for someone out there to save your soul

You lie naked on your bed
Reflecting thoughts in your head
You wonder why it takes so long for them to come and...

Save your soul
Save your soul
And it doesnt take a miracle to free you from these chains and save your save your soul
Save your soul
And the time will come for all to see that you have gone and saved your soul

When you think you are falling
Its no ones name you're calling
You think youre strong and you can grab that rope and pull yourself up
Holding on tight to whats left
And then you breath your last breath
You raise your hands and scream loud for someone out there to save your soul

Realising youve gone none left
Your fear you hid in your depth
You wonder why it takes so long for them to come and...

Save your soul
Save your soul
And it doesnt take a miracle to free you from these chains and save your save your soul
Save your soul
And the time will come for all to see that you have gone and saved your soul

Ahhhhhh....

Save your Soul

Salty Tears

Written By: Jenna Colquhoun

Hold on, be strong, its not long before you break away
Cant wait, you hate, not straight down the line from here
Why oh why do you cry those salty tears
Why oh why do you need to get away from here

Dont need to hide, run from your fears
Dont need to hide, cry all those lonely tears, lonley tears

Hold on, be strong, its not long before you break away
Stand tall, dont fall, before you make it all the way
Why oh why do you cry those salty tears
Why oh why do you need to get away from here

Dont need to hide, run from your fears
Dont need to hide, cry all those lonely tears lonely tears

Hold on, be strong, its not long before you break away....

Hide, run from your fears
Dont need to hide, cry all those lonely tears, lonely tears

You Are Perfect

Written By: Jenna Colquhoun

You are Perfect

Wake up powder up your plastic face
Make up, not a colour out of place
Wohhh...
Dress up in all of todays latest trends
Thinking that all of this will win your friends
Wohh...
Deep down you know that this isnt you
But you think if they knew the real you
They wouldnt think to stick around

So show us theres more to you than all we see
Make us believe theres something underneath
You are more than this now its time to be free
Show us whats real and not what we expect
Take us inside your sense of self respect
You are deeper than skin and girl you know...
You are perfect

Take up to hitting all the clubs again
Drink up cos all the boys will like you then
Wohh....
Mess up, see on the magazine page
Grow up, its time for you to act your age
Wohh...
Deep down you know that this isnt you
But you think if they knew the real you
They wouldnt think to stick around

So show us theres more to you than all we see
Make us believe theres something underneath
You are more than this now its time to be free
Show us whats real and not what we expect
Take us inside your sense of self respect
You are deeper than skin and girl you know...
You are perfect

It makes you happy that they all like you this way
But they just care bout how you look and not what you say
You think youre fooling them and this will make them stay
But girl...you dont need them anyway

So show us theres more to you than all we see
Make us believe theres something underneath
You are more than this now its time to be free
Show us whats real and not what we expect
Take us inside your sense of self respect
You are deeper than skin and girl you know...
You are perfect
You are perfect

Last on my feet

Written By: Jenna Colquhoun

Last on my feet

I never meant to leave it all behind
I never thought that things would change
I never said I wasnt destined to fall
Cos we all know its happened to us all

You try to pull yourself up out of the hole
But you cant the find the ladder
You scream and shout but no one hears you
Its not about being the last one to stand

I cant see why its me, Im the last on my feet
Cant escape from my ways
Show the light lift me up, and carry me away
I will stand and no longer be afraid

I never meant to leave it all behind
I always thought it would be the same
Its funny how time can change you
You dont realise til its gone to far

I cant see why its me, Im the last on my feet
Cant escape from my ways
Show the light lift me up, and carry me away
I will stand and no longer be afraid

I cant see why its me, Im the last on my feet
Cant escape from my ways.....

Show the light lift me up, and carry me away
I will stand and no longer be afraid

Let Go

Written By: Jenna Colquhoun

Let Go

Suddenly its hard to breath without you
Its hard to care without you there, im all alone
I start to see that its not me thats showing
I lose myself, becoming someone else

So let go, let go, dont leave me hanging
Leave me, Leave me, dont pull those heart strings
Cos you know im not strong enough
Let go, let go, you know i need it
Leave me, leave me, you know ill breathe it in
and youll just spit me out

Suddenly, I can finally breathe without you
You didnt win, I did not give in to your cries
I start to see the piece of me I thought i had lost
The piece that would have left you long ago

So let go, let go, dont leave me hanging
Leave me, Leave me, dont pull those heart strings
Cos you know im not strong enough
Let go, let go, you know i need it
Leave me, leave me, you know ill breathe it in
and youll just spit me out

Never thought that I could be so wrong
Never thought that I could get along without you in my life

Let go, let go, dont leave me hanging
Leave me, Leave me, dont pull those heart strings
Cos you know im not strong enough
Let go, let go, you know i need it
Leave me, leave me, you know ill breathe it in
and youll just spit me...out

Let go, let go
Let go, let go
