Tuning Up

Tuning up ‘cus I got let down
Might have lied when I said I didn’t cry
But look who’s laug
Tuning up ‘cus I got let down
Might have lied when I said I didn’t cry
But look who’s laughing now
Cus with 4 simple chords and a melody

I’ve learned how to be okay
But you’ll still feel lost... on a good day
Tuning up though I’m not sure why
Just a way of figuring things out

And putting my head right
Cus when I’m not sure where I’m supposed to turn
Or who I’m supposed to be
I’ve got 6 strings and a fretboard for company
Well I know I said it, but I don’t get it
Why...
I’ll write a melody, and despite everything

… feel alright
Tuning up cus my heart’s on fire
Let him in, let him under my skin
The pain left me inspired

Here’s to you, my fair-weather friend; this is what I know
Everyone has their fix
You can find yours in a bottle, but I’ve got this
Well I know I said it, but I don’t get it
Why…
I’ll write a melody, and despite everything
… feel alright
Well I know I said it, but I don’t get it
Why…
I’ll write a melody, and despite everything
… feel alright

 


Sparks Fly

Do my best not to notice
Do my best not to care
How the hairs on the back on my neck stand up
When you’re here

Close my eyes and imagine
Close my eyes and just breathe
Pray the look on my face doesn’t give me away
My relief

Sparks fly when you’re in the room
Sparks fly, I don’t know what to do
Sparks fly, I try my best not to look at you
But sparks fly, sparks fly

I bite my nails til they bleed
I wear my nerves til they shred
And I’ll try to sit down, but
You’re running round in my head

Sparks fly when you’re in the room
Sparks fly, I don’t know what to do
Sparks fly, I try my best not to look at you
But sparks fly, sparks fly

Sparks fly… sparks are flying
Sparks fly… sparks are flying
Sparks fly… sparks are flying
Sparks fly… sparks are flying

Sparks fly when you’re in the room
Sparks fly, I don’t know what to do
Sparks fly, I try my best not to look at you
But sparks fly, sparks…
Sparks fly when you’re in the room
Sparks fly, I don’t know what to do
Sparks fly, I try my best not to look at you
But sparks fly

Sparks fly


Compass

I can feel myself start to push you away
When all I want is for you to stay
I know full well that you can’t read my mind
And I’m asking you to all the time
Pour yourself like glue
Into the broken parts of me
I can’t ask for help
When I need it most, baby

I can’t do this on my own
Be my compass, point me home
I’ve been turning down all the wrong roads
Be my compass, point me home
Home

And I know I’ve been putting up lines
Until there’s none left to hide behind
And I ask too much from you
To find a way to break through
I’ll forget myself
If you wrap your arms around me tight
Don’t be too rational
To find a way to be here tonight

I can’t do this on my own
Be my compass, point me home
I’ve been turning down all the wrong roads
Be my compass, point me home
Home

Point me home
Point me home
Point me home
Point me home
Home

I can’t do this on my own
Be my compass, point me home
I’ve been turning down all the wrong roads
Be my compass, point me home

Home


Counting

You’re counting up months; love didn’t make 12
Fell short on time, but you gave everything else
Can count on your fingers how many times he said 3 words
And you can never tell if that helps or if it hurts

You’re counting on hope to get you through
He’s long gone now, not much left to lose
Can count on your fingers how many times you stood your ground
And you never feel all that safe or all that sound

But you are more than this
Yeah you are more than this

You’re counting up lies, they’re dragging you down
So keep your head high, don’t look back now
Can count on your fingers how much time he was your man
You had a whole life before, and there’s so much planned

But you are more than this
Yeah you are more than this

You’re not these teardrops
You’re not a ghost
You are everything you were before

You’re not a break-up song
You’re not a minor chord
You’re not defined by you’re going through
It’s a small part

But you are more than this
Yeah you are more than this
Yeah you are more than this
Yeah you are more than this


Bluff

Going round in circles is all that we’ve been doing
Thought we’d turned a corner, but we’re right back at the start
And going round in circles is wasting precious years now
There’s so many things I wish we could be
But we can’t

You apologise, with a look in your eyes
That says you mean it, so I’ll believe it
Darling I’m not calling your bluff,

I’m just hoping sorry’s enough

Running out of steam but it’s not the end of the line
Darling we’ll still get home, if you lead when I can’t
And if the sun sets on us, there’ll still be plenty of time
We’ll just find our way by the light of a sky full of stars

You apologise, with a look in your eyes
That says you mean it, so I’ll believe it
Darling I’m not calling your bluff,
I’m just hoping sorry’s enough

I’m just writing songs to right our wrongs
As we cling on, cus hope’s not gone, but
We won’t talk this out, and we won’t shout
So I’ll pour my doubts into a song then drink it down

You apologise, with a look in your eyes
That says you mean it, s
o I’ll believe it
Darling I’m not calling your bluff,
I’m just hoping sorry’s enough

But I’m just not sure that sorry’s enough.
