about

People say bigger is better, but I don’t think that’s always true. I did decide to give it a lash this week though, after a few weeks of quieter tunes.

This is a song about retaining your hope when everything around you seems to be trying to tear you apart.

lyrics

Who are you?
Sending a message out into the darkness.
Who are you?
Sending a message out into the darkness.

All alonely, and the clocks are stopped.
Staring at walls and hoping the world won’t knock.
Your door closed for an eternity,
Your eyes drinking and your heart twitching.

And we’re never strong,
We’re never strong enough.
And we’re never wise,
We’re never wise enough.
And we’re never smart,
We’re never smart enough.
Nobody’s there,
There there, love.

Who are you?
Sending a message out into the darkness.
Who are you?
Sending a message out into the darkness.

Temptation invades your streets again,
Eyes wide open, to the crawling under your skin.
And hate twisting the way you hold yourself,
And night listening to the crying of your tears again.

And we’re never strong,
We’re never strong enough.
And we’re never wise,
We’re never wise enough.
And we’re never smart,
We’re never smart enough.
Nobody’s there,
There there, love.

Who are you?
Sending a message out into the darkness.
Who are you?
Sending a message out into the darkness.
