A bouncy feel good pop song.


Deep in a dream I whisper,
Sweet nothings to my stone cold pillow.
I turn away from the sun.
You are broken by the dawn’s morning glow.

Then I stare into space,
Staying still to catch stardust that remains.
I’m just biding my time,
Until I can be with you again.

The things I’d say to you,
If my voice was as brave as my mind.
Sometimes I’m on the verge of tears,
For reasons I’ve yet to find.
Perhaps it’s no matter how far it’ll be,
The end won’t be far enough for me.

I keep these thoughts to myself.
My courage is the lion’s pride.
My mouth opens to speak,
And like the tin man I am frozen inside.

Will you tell me what you’re holding back?
‘Cos I really just need to keep track,
Of where I am with you.

Here I go, I’ll let it all out now.
Here I go, I’m telling you soon.
It’s gotta be now while there’s something to loose.
