Lyrics

Deep Breath In

Written By: Talia Pallant

"Deep Breath In"

How can you take it
Having to fake it
Day in and day out

It don't seem worth it
Trying to be perfect
Why can't you be happy
with yourself

She takes a deep breath in
and breaths out slowly
She tries to be strong now
She's been so lonely

Her self esteem gets lower
and lower
She's losing her faith
over and over
She's made mistakes
like many others
She has regrets
and she's lost her mother

She takes a deep breath in
and breaths out slowly
She tries to be strong now
She's been so lonely

All the insecurities they've
taken a hold
She wants to be through with it
to leave this world
I say get hold of yourself and trust in me
You are beautiful the way you are
can't you see

She tries so hard
To be noticed like you
She cries so hard thinking what to do

She takes a deep breath in
and breaths out slowly
She tries to be strong now
She's been so lonely
She takes a deep breath in and breaths out slowly
She's finally strong now
and she's not lonely

It's Only Me

IT’S ONLY ME
By Talia Pallant

My heart heart beats
Ever so softly for you
For you for or or you
Words left unsaid
Should always be spoken
But you but you
You left me confused

The clouds drift away
You bring out the sunshine
For me for me for or or me
As I sit here under the starlight
I gaze I gaze I dream of you

With you I feel so much better
Oh yes I do
Me and you oh just imagine
What we could do

1 step 2 steps you’re getting closer
3 steps 4 steps your lips and mine
Breath in breath out
There’s no reason to be nervous
It’s only me

In the winter cold
You hold me so tight
Your hand my hand
Together as one
Time passes by I miss you so much
Tock, tick tock, I’m waiting for you

Tell me something
Why do you hold back
Why can’t you just let it be
Do you think that I will hurt you
Well I think that you’re crazy
Cos I am crazy only for you baby
There aint no other like you
So just let go completely

With you I feel so much better
Oh yes I do
Me and you oh just imagine
What we could do

1 step 2 steps you’re getting closer
3 steps 4 steps your lips and mine
Breath in breath out
There’s no reason to be nervous
Oh please don’t be
It’s only me

She Walks Away

SHE WALKS AWAY
By Talia Pallant

The first look, the first glance
You never gave me a chance
I hide behind a great big smile
To start anew won’t happen because of you
Ah ha ha aha

The tension, the shake
The wait the closed doors
Whispers and murmours
I feel so unsure
Ah ha ha aha

There’s only so much a girl can take
Before she walks away
She walks away she walks

Teardrops fall, I can’t describe why
You’re escaping the questions that I ask
Trust you, I’ve grown not too

The days turn into weeks
The anger starts to release
Waiting in the line
Take a number
Waiting in the line
This is all I seem to do when I’m with you

There’s only so much a girl can take
Before she walks away
She walks away, she walks

There’s only so much a girl can take
Before she walks away
She walks away, she walks

Nothing but another to cling to
Nothing but another to cling to
Torn apart, we’ve torn apart

Nothing but another to cling to
Nothing but another to cling to
Torn apart, we’ve torn apart

She Walks Away

Come Back to Reality

Written By: Talia Pallant

©21/7/09 COME BACK TO REALITY
Talia Pallant

Why do you think you’re always
Better than everyone that’s here
Better than everyone that’s here tonight
You think that you’re better, you’re better
I don’t think so

Come back to reality
Plant your feet on the ground
Deflate your head
It’s gotten bigger over time

All your friends are obsessed with boys
Don’t really care about you
Don’t you realise, that I was there
I was there for you
But it was you who
Threw it all away
Big Mistake

Half Chorus
Replaced by material girls
Material girls that are so fake
Bleached blonde hair
And Oh I broke a nail

Your secret’s out
Your secret’s out
You’re not so secure
Like you say you are

Your secret’s out
Your secret’s out
You don’t like the person
You see in the mirror

Chorus
Replaced by material girls
Material girls that are so fake
Bleached blonde hair and
Oh I broke a nail

Replaced by material girls
Material girls that are so fake
Make up to cover up their spots
Make up to cover up who they really are

Friends, not anymore
I grew Up
But you haven’t yet

Come back to reality
Plant your feet on the ground
Deflate your head
its gotten bigger over time.
Come back to reality
Come back to reality
Come back to reality
Come back to reality

What Would I Do Without You

WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT YOU
Talia Pallant


How Can I ever repay you
For being there to guide me
Through the world’s darkest moments
You helped me through

All the tears that I’ve cried
All the tears that filled my eyes
And I wonder ......

Chorus
What did I do to deserve you
Would I feel this strong without you
Do you realise how far I’ve come because of you
What would I do without you

Everything we have been through
After all you’ve done for me
You’ve taught me all you know
Can’t you see how much I have grown

All the fears inside
All the fears I’ve tried to hide
And I wonder ......

Chorus
What did I do to deserve you
Would I feel this strong without you
Do you realise how far I’ve come because of you
What would I do without you

Some days I’m not quite sure
Try to find myself but nothing works
I look up to you to pick me up
You’ve never given up

I’m here till the end
You’re like my best friend
You mean the world to me
You made me believe

I love you
Never forget that
I love you

What would I do without you

Kiss Me Quick

© KISS ME QUICK
Talia Pallant

Kiss me quick
Before I change my mind
Kiss me quick
Before the tide runs dry
Kiss me quick
Before the sun goes down
Kiss me quick
Before your time runs out

Before I run away run away run away
To the next boy
who gives me attention and affection

Get here quick
I’ve got something to say
Get here quick
I need you night and day
Get here quick
I know you feel the same
Get here quick
Before it goes away

Before it goes away goes away goes away
And the phase is truely over
It might not be coming back

Let’s take a risk
Why don’t we get together
Let’s take a risk
It’s truly now or never
Let’s take a risk
Just forget about the future
Let’s take a risk

Cos I want it to be
Just you and me
Can you say yes now
Cos I want you
so badly to be mine

Kiss me quick
I haven’t changed my mind
Kiss me quick
I’m so glad that you’re mine
Kiss me quick
You are so damn fine
Kiss me quick
Join your lips with mine

So we can run away run away run away
To the secret place that we went to that day
To the secret place that we went to that day

Kiss me quick
Kiss me quick
Kiss me quick
Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me
Oh so quick
