Lyrics

Blackbird Fly

Written By: Samantha Lien

I woke up yesterday morning
And I found I’d lost my way
Adrift upon an empty sea
With someone’s borrowed sails

That boat did not belong to me
Although they said that it did
I had to stage a mutiny
For all my hopes and dreams

No I don’t wanna believe
That there’s nothing more than this
Nothing more, nothing more, nothing more than this
So I just gotta believe
That there’s something more than this
Something more, something more, something more than this

Now it seems I can hardly move
For my skin has grown too tight
Spent those years all plastered in
Gotta leave that shell behind

Did you see that blackbird fly?
I’d like to go there too
I am forced to drag my wings
My feet won’t leave the ground

No I don’t wanna believe
That there’s nothing more than this
Nothing more, nothing more, nothing more than this
So I just gotta believe
That there’s something more than this
Something more, something more, something more than this

I watched a blackbird in the air
Until it flew too high
Oh blackbird, I am coming too
Gotta grow my wings and fly
Gotta grow my wings and fly

No I don’t wanna believe
That there’s nothing more than this
Nothing more, nothing more, nothing more than this
So I just gotta believe
That there’s something more than this
Something more, something more, something more than this
No I’m not gonna believe
That there’s nothing more than this
Nothing more, nothing more, nothing more than this
So I’m just gonna believe
That there’s something more than this
Something more, something more, something more than this

Fame Doesn't Love You

Written By: Samantha Lien

In the dark of the night
When dreams come to life
There’s a girl
Wishing with all her might
For the secret
Of stopping time

She’s got dreams of her own
But time has its hands on her throat
Fame doesn’t love you
When you get old
Fame, fame, doesn’t love you

A girl of 23
Is worth less than a girl of 17
‘Cos soon, she’ll be 25
And then we’ll forget that she’s alive

Oh come on, you’ve seen it all before
A star burns brightly
And then it’s gone
Oooh, then it’s gone,
Back from whence it came
Lost in the darkness
And crying out for fame

She’s got dreams of her own
But time has its hands on her throat
Fame doesn’t love you
When you get old
Fame, fame, doesn’t love you

She’s got dreams of her own
But time has its hands on her throat
Fame doesn’t love you
When you get old
Fame, fame, she’s got dreams of her own
