Thing Of Ours

Written By: Julia Nicholls

Thing Of Ours

Verse 1

Monday morning, sum of parts,
I catch your eye and then it starts,
Control is not an entity
That kindly lends itself to me,
The images inside my head,
They make me wish I'd stayed in bed.

Verse 2

The fiery dawn, the morning blues,
The song of night, your dancing shoes,
The things you say, the things you are,
The people saying we'll go far,
I look at you and take to heart
The few times I don't fall apart.

Chorus

Calling out, 'cross the floor,
No regrets anymore.
Waiting there in the light,
Come and be with me tonight.
Falling in, running out,
Hear your voice, hear you shout,
If it's right, then I guess,
Whatever we are, friends is less.

Verse 3

Another touch, another lie,
Goodness gracious, my oh my,
Loyal to another heart,
Baby, let's just stay apart,
Protectiveness I feel inside,
Could not explain this if I tried.

Chorus

Calling out, 'cross the floor,
No regrets anymore.
Waiting there in the light,
Come and be with me tonight.
Falling in, running out,
Hear your voice, hear you shout,
If it's right, then I guess,
Whatever we are, friends is less

Bridge

Lost, I turn to you and break,
This must be a mistake,
This isn't what I planned,
Lord, I don't understand,
Do you have any idea
How much of this I fear?
Foreign dance in a shifting cage,
Brand new noise on a violet stage.

Verse 4

Let's be honest, I'll be clear,
Say so everyone can hear,
I'm crazy for your stupid grin,
The way you brighten the world I'm in.
I like the way you make me feel,
So screw the haters, this is real.

Chorus

Calling out, 'cross the floor,
No regrets anymore.
Waiting there in the light,
Come and be with me tonight.
Falling in, running out,
Hear your voice, hear you shout,
If it's right, then I guess,
Whatever we are...

Chorus

Calling out, 'cross the floor,
No regrets anymore.
Waiting there in the light,
Come and be with me tonight.
Falling in, running out,
Hear your voice, hear you shout,
If it's right, then I'm sure,
Whatever we were then, now we're more.
Now we're more.

Could Love

Could Love

Verse 1

My name played deep, repeat, repeat,
Your voice, your eyes, are soft and sweet,
Broke down my old defence to meet
Your eyes in front of mine.
And every time you’re drawing near,
I lose my breath, I lose my fear,
Your melody is hard to hear,
But I hear it just fine.

Chorus

Long journey,
Put your shoes up on my chair,
Trespassers
Try to tell you that they care,
And I fly past, like a thought,
Like I wasn’t even there.

Verse 2

A lighthouse keeper on a quay
Is solitary, happily,
She paints a smile and says to me,
So let his magic weave.
A day, a month, the end, the end,
I say goodbye to an almost friend,
It’s hard to smile, hard to pretend,
‘Cause it hurts to see you leave.

Chorus

Long journey,
Put your shoes up on my chair,
Trespassers
Try to tell you that they care,
And I fly past, like a thought,
Like I wasn’t even there.

Bridge

Am I, am I someone you could love?
Am I, am I someone you could love?
Am I, am I someone you could love?
Am I, am I someone you could love?
You are, you are someone I could love,
You are, you are someone I could love,
You are, you are someone I could love.

Chorus

Long journey,
Put your shoes up on my chair,
Trespassers
Try to tell you that they care,
And I fly past, like a thought,
Like I wasn’t even there,
in your eyes, like you didn’t really care,
but I know, I was never even there.

Somebody Else

Written By: Julia Nicholls

Somebody Else

Chorus

Everybody's got somebody,
But every someone's got
Somebody else, somebody else, somebody else.
We start off whole but we get broken,
And everybody's fixing
Somebody else, somebody else, somebody else

Verse 1

Sometimes we're the happiest creatures on Earth.
Sometimes we miss out.
And we can walk around with a smile on our face
Floating on an ocean of doubt.
You never get used to being lonely,
Never stop wanting to be the only one,
Their only one

Chorus

But everybody's got somebody,
And your somebody's got
Somebody else, somebody else, somebody else

Verse 2

One heart so full of beauty and love,
One word can make it stop.
And the moment that we know there's another in mind,
Yeah, that's when we grow up.
I know the world feels better in different eyes,
And all of this may seem like a huge surprise,
But tell me this has never gone through your head:
"Oh darling heart, just please choose me instead."

Chorus

'Cos everybody's got somebody,
But every someone's got
Somebody else, somebody else, somebody else.
Yeah, we start off whole but we get broken,
And everybody's fixing
Somebody else, somebody else, somebody else.
