FOOTSCRAY PARK LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Take a walk to Footscray Park, Stay out til the sky is dark. Tell your friends you're getting old, Tell your friends if truth be told. What do you do with the mess in your mind? You pack up all the pain And pretend that you're fine When you're broken up inside, All broken up inside. Wander round the house all day, Find a bar that's open late. What do you do with the mess in your mind? You pack up all the pain And pretend that you're fine When you're broken up inside, All broken up inside. Go outside and face the world, Harden up and hide the hurt. What do you do with the mess in your mind? You pack up all the pain And pretend that you're fine When you're broken up inside, All broken up inside. Take a walk to Footscray Park, Stay out til the sky is dark.

MAPS LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Maps and all the cities of the world Make me feel so small, I know I'll never live to see 'em all. Faith in all the colours that we see Makes the sky turn blue, I know when I look up I'll find you. Who would have thought A star could break your heart? Haven't you heard That when we're gone the world Just keeps on breathing? Distant love and all of the above Sometimes makes me blue, I know when I look up I'll find you. Now you're gone To blue skies.

BRUISES LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Bruises They appear as if from nowhere And you wake up wondering How they got there. Bruises Bleeding blue and purple memories, All the hurts and aches And the soft heart breaks Reminds me every day, Yeah I know, let 'em go Don't let them have their way. Yeah I know, let 'em go Just let those bruises fade. Bruises I grew up and now they're everywhere And the years went by But the pain remains there. Someday We will stare down all our enemies, That we keep itching Underneath our skin But 'til then That's where they'll stay.

DON'T WANNA GROW UP ANYMORE LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 When I was young Everything came so easy, Nothing much to do, No point to prove. Where did that sun kissed kid go? Now you know I just don't wann grow up anymore. I know what you'll try and tell me, "Seize the day my friend Until the end!" It's true, I can't complain but Still you know I just don't wanna grow up anymore You know I just don't wanna grow up anymore I'm told from the dust of stars we Came into this world And shall return. It's foolish to try and fight it. Still you know I just don't wanna grow up anymore. You know I just don't wanna grow up anymore. Come back, Don't crack, Come down and Lie with me in the summer sun.

SITTING IN THE WAITING ROOM LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Sitting in the waiting room, Doctor will be with you soon, Kill some time and watch the tube. It's clearly in the air We're both a little scared, And I don't have the words to make it right I'm staring at the screen She's reading magazines, And I don't have the words to make it right So I throw a little lie. Sitting in the waiting room Doctor says to come on through. Now what can I do for you? And first there is a pause Before she starts to talk And I don't have the words to make it right. And even though I'm here I'm helplessness and fear, And I don't have the words to make it right. Letting unknown forces take control Let the unknown forces take control... Walking out the waiting room My eyes are white, the skies still blue Now there's other stuff to do. It's when she takes my hand I start to understand, I don't need the words to make it right. When facing the unknown No one wants to be alone, And it's not words we need to make it right. And further as we walk And we begin to talk, I don't need the words to make it right. And soon we're in my car, The lights are rushing past And it's not the words we need to make it right As we drive in to the night.

GET IT TOGETHER LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 That old had ain't what I need, It's a rusty lock and key, Now a distant memory Get it together. As a kid, man I was scard Of the voices in my head, Gonna put those fears to bed Now and forever. Cos I don't want to live As if I'm chasing my tail around Only to be told, "You just got old" And I don't want to die Taking my place in a checkout line, That's never going to be Enough for me. It got to get it together. All the kids queue round the bend And they strut, trying to pretend They're in Vampire Weekend, Get it together.

TO LET YOU DOWN LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Sometimes, it's a quiet night That stirs my troubled mind And I wonder what I'd do If ever I lost you. Walking through an empty world A shadow by my side Well I'd go on I suppose Wearing my old closthes. You're the only one Who means everything to me And I'd hate to let you down. I'd really hate to let you down. Always thought that I was full of Really big ideas, I might have fooled everyone else I was fooling myself. When your hope is gone Or it hurts too much to carry on, That's when I'd hate to let you down. I'd really hate to let you down. And I know it's true As great empires fall That me and you, We're different to them all! Yeah, I know it's true Like writing on the wall. You could do less foolish things than Give your heart away And if I ever let it break, That would be my worst mistake. When the lights go out We don't have to be alone. 'Cos I'd hate to let you down. I'd really hate to let you down.

IN ANOTHER TIME LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Going to make my way through the crowd and Into your party. I can handle this like the adult I'm supposed to be When the moment comes and we make eye contact I'll just pretend We're old friends. Nothing ever happened anyway. Can't you see you're the last thing I need right now Interrupting my world? Finally just when I think I'm cured Your lingering ghost returns. And in another time we might have been something But now I'm tired of draggin the memory of you around Please don't hate me when You're confronted by my cold shoulder. We just can't move past awkward conversation. Don't get me wrong, I've moved on Honest, I don't ache for you that much. Can't you see you're the last thing I need right now Interrupting my world? Finally just when I think I'm cured Your lingering ghost returns. In another time maybe we just might have been something But now I'm tired of dragging the memory of you around.

GO LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Love. When it's in your veins It infects your brain Til your dying days And I couldn't wait for the time When I found a heart like mine. We were lost, we were soft We were unripe on the vine But there's no way that I could wait for tomorrow, C'mon I'm ready to go! Break All your thick skin rules. They're just a big excuse, They will become your noose Til you cut them loose. When you're down and the next one comes around Make it big, make it brash, Make it bigger than the last Cos there's no way the world can wait for tomorrow, C'mon get ready to go! Lovin' is the best And it's good to get it off your chest. You've got to wonder why We all laugh about it, shout about it Til it makes us cry. And right now is the time I got yours and you got mind. We are lost, we are soft We're just hangin' from the vine But there's now way the world can wait for tomorrow, No there's no way that I can wait for tomorrow, C'mon I'm ready to go!

NOTHING'S GONNA SAVE US FROM OURSELVES LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 Losing ground In a battle of age, Broken bones Gently wither away. Shadows from a slow descending moon Cast themselves across an empty room. Nothing now, The silence we shared Suffocates and floats in the air. Autumn leaves have fallen from the trees Scattered like the dust of memories. Nothing's gonna save us from ourselves Running dry like water in the well. You can keep your heaven and your hell Cos nothing's gonna save us from ourselves. Heavy night Blacker than tar, Lying back Looking up at the stars. I've been holding on for so long To something love had led my heart to find. Laid to rest upon a night stand, Our memories are all we leave behind.

WHAT ELSE IS THERE? LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 All we know is nothing anyway. All that we can do is give our love away. Making ourselves vulnerable, It's crazy! Makes no sense to chance our hearts so easily But what else is there? What else is there? All we own is nothing anyway. All we've got is all we'll leave behind some day. Fall in love and drive ourselves insane. Makes no sense to do it but we're all the same, Cos what else is there? What else is there?

WONDERFUL YOU LYRICS

ALBUM: FAMILIAR STRANGER, 2013 When I can be prone to indulging in sadness You are the light through a dark sky in June And that's how I know I can always find sunshine With my wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful You. Now who would have thought that the smallest of gestures Could make the whole world seem alive and brand new? The curl of a lip and I'm hopelessly falling For my wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful You. And I know there'll be Times when we won't see things eye to eye But that doesn't mean I'll ever stop tryin'. In truth sometimes life can feel more like a series Of mundane events we're all forced to live through, But I love even the most ordinary moments With my wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful You. And I know there'll be Times when we won't see things eye to eye But that doesn't mean I'll ever stop tryin'. And I know that long After everyone's gone You'll be there still, Listening to me Singing your song. So in to the great unknown future We walk on. I can't promise I'll always know what to do, But I'll be here for ya Come hell or high water. You're my wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful You.
