Child Within

Written By: Maxine Rickman, Jon Ryan

Verse 1:
Tiny soul, how to keep the child within
How to know where they end and you begin
When it feels, like the world is down on you
Everyone seems to know what you should do

Chorus:
Don’t listen to what they say
Don’t be the wounded child trying to explain
And twenty years from now when it’s so hard for you to change,
Don’t let your face become a mirror for their pain

Verse 2:
Child within, do not disappear from view
When you’re gone, we will know we needed you
As you are, you’re so perfect and unspoiled
Come to me, be the centre of my world

Chorus:
Don’t listen to what they say
Don’t be the wounded child trying to explain
And twenty years from now when it’s so hard for you to change,
Don’t let your face become a mirror for their pain

Bridge:
Don’t become their self-fulfilling prophecy
Don’t take on, the burden of their legacy
Just believe, you can open all the doors
Their mistakes are never meant to be yours

Chorus:
Don’t listen to what they say
Don’t be the wounded child trying to explain
And twenty years from now when it’s so hard for you to change,
Don’t let your face become a mirror for their pain

Chorus:
Don’t listen to what they say
Don’t be the wounded child trying to explain
And twenty years from now when it’s so hard for you to change,
Don’t let your face become a mirror for their pain

Outro:
Don’t listen to what they say...

Full Circle

Written By: Maxine Rickman, Jon Ryan

Verse 1:
All I wanted was to know that you loved me
All I wanted was to know that you cared
Not much to ask, I was your baby
Not much to ask, was it more than you dared?

Chorus:
Sorry isn't good enough
It's hurting who I am and who I can be
If you thought that sorry would be good enough
Circle right around, forget about me

Verse 2:
All you needed was for someone to love you
All you needed was for someone to see
Not much to ask, oh if someone had loved you
Not much to ask, then you could have loved me

Chorus:
Sorry isn't good enough
It's hurting who I am and who I can be
If you thought that sorry would be good enough
Circle right around, forget about me

Chorus:
Sorry isn't good enough
It's hurting who I am and who I can be
If you thought that sorry would be good enough
Circle right around, forget about me

Middle 8:
Tell me, tell me, tell me that you love me and mean it, mean it, mean that you love me
Tell me, tell me, tell me that you love me and feel it, feel it, feel that you love me
Tell me, tell me, tell me that you love me and mean it, mean it, mean that you love me
Tell me, tell me, tell me that you love me and feel it, feel it, feel that you love me
Tell me, tell me, tell me that you love me and mean it, mean it, mean that you love me
Tell me, tell me, tell me that you love me and feel it, feel it, feel it

Chorus:
Sorry isn't good enough
It's hurting who I am and who I can be
If you thought that sorry would be good enough
Circle right around, forget about me

Chorus:
Sorry isn't good enough
It's hurting who I am and who I can be
If you thought that sorry would be good enough
Circle right around, forget about me

Midland Station

Written By: Maxine Rickman, Jon Ryan

Verse 1:
Sunday morning, sunny day, run away and hide
You’re leaving, soon be gone, feel so cold inside
You tell me, to be good, something in me dies
Abandoned, frightened, tears in my eyes

Chorus:
When I needed you where were you?
When I needed you why did you go away?
Where were you?
When I needed you why did you leave me this way?

Verse 2:
To the station, we are bound, take you to the train
Doors closing, in my heart, can you feel my pain
We are waving, smiling, sadness isn’t shown
Three weeks is way too long, don’t leave me on my own

Chorus:
When I needed you where were you?
When I needed you why did you go away?
Where were you?
When I needed you why did you leave me this way?

Bridge:
Why did you leave me in this trouble?
Burst me like a bubble
Why did you stamp me out like a cigarette?
I want to make sure that you never forget
Why did you leave me?

Chorus:
When I needed you where were you?
When I needed you why did you go away?
Where were you?
When I needed you why did you leave me this way?

Chorus:
When I needed you where were you?
When I needed you why did you go away?
Where were you?
When I needed you why did you leave me this way?

Nil By Mouth

Written By: Maxine Rickman, Jon Ryan

Verse 1:
Purge myself, do my bloodshot eyes give me away
Purge myself, do you hear what I’m trying to say?
I’m not saying anything, I’m just being me
I’m not saying anything, I want to be free

Chorus:
How do I get away from this person inside
Plaguing me night and day
I can’t run, I can’t hide
I do not want to be with this person inside
How do I get away
Stop the ride

Verse 2:
Nil by mouth, my way of keeping control
Nil by mouth, of a great big emotional hole
I don’t control anything, except being me
I don’t control anything, I am not even free

Chorus:
How do I get away from this person inside
Plaguing me night and day
I can’t run, I can’t hide
I do not want to be with this person inside
How do I get away
Stop the ride

Bridge:
Subconscious Suicide
Subconscious Suicide
Suicide
Suicide

Chorus:
How do I get away from this person inside
Plaguing me night and day
I can’t run, I can’t hide
I do not want to be with this person inside
How do I get away
Stop the ride
