Spin and Fall

Written By: Them Little Secrets

SPIN AND FALL

I see you... wildly spinning around, in your party dress
Pink balloons, butterflies and faerie wings hang in the air
With one deep breath, five flickering flames unrest
1,2,3,4 Close your eyes, make a wish...
You're not yet to fall

Now I see you... wildly spinning around, in your teenage mess
Face filled walls, of everyone you wish to be, so much better than me
With one deep breath, the tears well up and ache in your chest
1,2,3,4 close your eyes, make a wish
You're starting to fall...

And I see you... wildly spinning around the world
Searching for your home, in every corner of the globe
Leaving you spinning, spinning
Leaving you spinning, spinning
In a place of vertigo
Any chance to let go

Now I see me... curling sand beneath my toes
Standing on my own
And I feel the swell, growing deep within my heart
As a new day starts
With one deep breath... fear subsides and stillness is left
And now I can tell..
That through all these years... the falling was held
The fallling was held.

Him

Written By: Them Little Secrets

Do not look for him in songs, in the deep rich voices of men you lost.
Do not look for him in songs... he's not there.

Do not Look for him in poems, in the beautiful words all gathered around
Do not look for him in poems... he's not there.

CHORUS
Do not look for him, for he's not lost.
It may not be today
He has not come yet, your love
But he's on his way

Do not look for him in dreams, running barefoot through the fires of night.
Do not look for him in dreams... he's not there.

CHORUS
Do not look for him, for he's not lost.
It may not be today
He has not come yet, your love
But he's on his way

He's on his way... I'm sure he's on his way

You got to look for him in life.
With your heart wide open to let love in and he'll see your guiding light... and he'll be there.

CHORUS
So do not look for him, for he's not lost.
It may not be today
He has not come yet, your love
But he's on his way

Invisible

Written By: Them Little Secrets

I'm the brightest of red trying to blend in a sea of beige
Believing I'm trapped, when the truth is I flew into my own cage.
Perched to perform, 'cocky sing, cocky dance' they'd shout
But I've been biding my time and like Peacey I am flying out!

CHORUS
Coz I'm not invisible, invisible to you no more
I'm not invisible, invisible to you.

I've been waiting backstage, only playing supporting roles
And I've been chasing my dreams, like a Nanna who's chasing her lawn bowls
I would venture on stage only when I could wear my mask
But now I've thrown it away and I've walked out on stage without my hip flask..

CHORUS
Coz I'm not invisible, invisible to you no more
I'm not invisible, invisible to you.

BRIDGE
Now I see the maddness as I walk these city streets
I see the thought bubbles of saddness of people whose hearts they cheat
I've done my time here.. but now I'm through
And in the reflection, I can finally see the truth...

CHORUS
That I'm not invisible, invisible to you no more
I'm not invisible, invisible to you.
Coz I'm not invisible, invisible to you no more
I'm not invisible, invisible to you.

Take Me Home (With Intro)

Written By: Them Little Secrets

Take Me Home

(This song was written in honour of the women of Ireland and England who were sent to Australia. Some committed no crimes, some broke the law to save their children. Some perished on the endless journey... but none made it home. And so, it was our honour to take their spirits home.)

I came a female convict
From my Eirean's Isle
Transported to Van Demons land
There to serve my time

They said I stole a bonnet
In the town I loved so well
And though the crime, it was not mine
They shipped me off to hell

CHORUS
Home…. Oh take me home
With a rose across my heart
I'm not alone
With my bonnet held so tight
Guide me safely through the night
Take me home

I did my time then met a man
He cared for me so,
Blessed me with a family,
but I never let them know

That I was a female transportee
Never meant to roam
Now I'm the spirit of these women
And at last I'm going home...

Home…. Oh take me home
With a rose across my heart
I'm not alone
With my bonnet held so tight
Guide me safely through the night
Take me home

Home…. Oh take me home
With a rose across my heart
I'm not alone
With my bonnet held so tight
Guide me safely through the night
Take me home

____________________________________________
And on my head I'll wear a bonnet
And I'll wear it with great pride
I'll take with me my comrades
Standing closely by my side
_____________________________________________

We're lost no more because of you
Our souls will no more roam
You've brought us all full circle now..
At last we can go home.

Home…. Oh take me home
With a rose across my heart
I'm not alone
With my bonnet held so tight
Guide me safely through the night
Take me home

Home…. Oh take me home
With a rose across my heart
I'm not alone
With my bonnet held so tight
Guide me safely through the night
Christina, take me home


This Will Pass Soon

Written By: Them Little Secrets

Rolling clouds follow the sun
The shadows drape over your shoulder
You wake to find it’s not a dream
But hold on tight my dear one
Though it’s hard to believe
In time you will see

That this will pass soon, this will pass soon

You must know that angels surround
They whisper when you quiet your heart
And those you love are lighting your path
They walk beside you shielding the dark
Rest here in their arms as you wait for
the calm

Cos this will pass soon, this will pass soon
this will pass soon, this will pass soon

My dear this will pass soon

Make Believe

Written By: Them Little Secrets

Make believe
You’re for me
And I the one for you
Fingers entwined
They think you’re mine
But our hands know the truth
That we’re both strangers
With our hearts too blind to see
But for one more day
Let’s make believe
Open skin
To let you in
Though every fibre tried
To build a wall
To keep me small
But you charmed your way to the other side
You see, when you don’t heed the danger
Your hearts will take the lead
You say it’s over
I make believe
You made me believe
Could wear my heart upon my sleeve
And you made me believe
I could trust you not to leave
so make believe
You’re for me
And I the one for you
Fingers entwined
They think you’re mine
But our hands know the truth
That we’re just strangers
With our hearts too blind to see
But for one more day
Let’s make believe

Little One

Written By: Them Little Secrets

If I could give you a map, little one
To guide you on your way
Where would I start,
What would I mark,
To help you navigate
You would use your heart as your compass
For its senses are much more true
The world it will try to pull you aside
But your heart will guide you through
Little one, you were chosen to be here now and grow
Little one, you are stronger than you could ever know
There’s a light that streams from inside you
and guides you on your way
And that light has been shining since that day
If I could give you a gift, little one
The courage to sing your song
Mockingbirds call you to sing like them
But imitating won’t last long
Little one, you are beautiful from your head down to your toes
Little one, you are stronger than you could ever know
You are bold, you’ll grow old, you will love and be loved
Welcome to the world, Little one

Show Me

Written By: Them Little Secrets

Show me that you can see just what I see
That you will listen to your belly
As you paint the world today
The colours dance across your canvas
Weaving the brightest path for us
And teaming in the brilliance of you, you
Do do do do Do do do do Do do do do do x 2
You have tapped into something
that’s coursing through your veins
Feeding each and every cell a different kind of grain
God I feel so blessed as I sit here right now
In the sea of sparkling eyes I have the best seat in the house
Do do do do Do do do do Do do do do do
Show me
Show me that you can see just what I see
That you will listen to your belly
As you paint the world today

She Loves Love

Written By: Them Little Secrets

I know a girl with stars in her hair
Perched up high on a limb of I don’t care
And sitting beside her I find more of who I am
I am loved, understood in my sisterhood.
Love love la la la love... She loves love
Then there’s the girl with a heart
That could swallow the sea
In the warmth of her glow
Sits her family
Theres a place she keeps beside her
While I learn who I am
I am loved, understood in my sisterhood
Now there’s a curled set of pages
Holding each of their names
Their lives fill the lines of each refrain
And now I’m beside them
I know who I am
I am loved, understood, in my sisterhood.
