Lyrics

Grace

Written By: Jess Murray

I try, I try but it's just no good anymore.
Why'd you have to, build these walls
Is it to lock me out or to lock you in?
Maybe you're just blind to the pain you keep me in?
I try but I can't get through to you.
Doesn't life drive you to try a little harder, to try to find desire?
Babe how'd you live a life so numb?
Oh, and I try but I can't get through to you.
Oh, I try but I can't get through to you, no.
Baby what went wrong what did I do to make you feel so blue?
Suddenly you've changed I cannot even recognise you, and.
I try, I try but it's just no good anymore.
And I try to look a little deeper into your eyes, yes I'm looking just a little deeper into your eyes, yes I'm looking just a little deeper into your eyes,
But I can't seem to feel your grace.
Oh, and I try but I can't get through to you.
Oh, yeah I try but I can't get through to you, no.

You Ask Me

Written By: Jess Murray

You ask me if I smoke I say I don't, you say "how come", and I open up a bottle of wine, sip it and say "I'm not alone".
I've seen you here many times before.
I've seen you here but never thought of you.

I'm expecting miracles babe.
I'm not thinking rationally at all.
I should stop, and listen to myself before it all goes wrong.

You say you like my look, you like my dress, you like my shoes, and I'm guessing what you're thinking.
Should I just walk away?
Should I mumble some excuse and get my bags and go..
Don't wanna answer my phone, don't wanna go back to the same old plans, that I follow everyday.

I'm expecting miracles babe.
I'm not thinking rationally at all.
I should stop, and listen to myself before it all goes wrong.

But I'd love to talk, I'd love to listen.
Love to stay and drink this evening.
But I should put my feet back down.

I'm expecting miracles babe.
I'm not thinking rationally at all.
I should stop, and listen to myself before it all goes wrong.

I'm expecting miracles babe.
I'm not thinking rationally at all.
I should stop, and listen to myself before it all goes wrong.
