LAUREN BRUCE lyrics

1. Something To Talk About

Didn't think I'd land on my two feet
No-one said I was crazy, I believe
The sun's coming up on my dreams

Didn't think I'd leave, but I suddenly did
And it wasn't easy, I believe
The sun's coming up on my dreams

Yes it is what I've been looking for
And I don't see why I should wait no more
Throw your arms inside and tear it out
Baby, I've got something to talk about

If what I am, you don't like
Don't stick it on me, I'll tear it off
The sun's coming up on my dreams

And I feel too tired to define my life
And your words and your labels
They don't mean nothin' to me

There ain't no time to wait no more
There ain't no time to wait …



2. Lonely Avenue

Baby I didn't mean to make you lose yourself
Sometimes we do
Baby I didn't mean to make you doubt yourself
Cos I never doubted you

We walked through 17's attitude
Took a ride down 18's mood
21, made a beautiful family
Crossed continents, me and you
I thought we'd carry each other
God knows I've carried you

Now I'll take a bus down Lonely Avenue and see if my heart comes too

Baby I never changed the way I feel for you
Something's changed in you
I thought all we needed was love to get us through
Turns out that's not true
We walked through 17's attitude
Took a ride down 18's mood
21, made a beautiful family
Crossed continents, me and you
I thought we'd carry each other
God knows I've relied on you

Now I'll take a bus down Lonely Avenue
Take a walk to Covent Garden
Take a coffee down River Thames walk and see
Oh I'll see if my heart…

All that I know of me is you
All that I know of me is you
All that I know of me is you

Now I'll take a bus down Lonely Avenue
Take a walk to Covent Garden
Take a coffee down River Thames Walk and see
Oh I'll see if my heart comes too.


3. Podium

Now I remember the colour of grey
It's not quite the night, but it's not quite the day
And I think I remember what god used to say
Or maybe it's me talking to my sense again

I throw back the mountain
Oh how I try to be a good person, how I try
But the worst kind of lonely is when I'm all alone
and baby you're by my side..
Come on now hold onto somebody tight,
If everybody falls it looks like everybody's fine
Remember your name when you walk to the podium

Now I remember how we came to be
It wasn't really you and it wasn't really me
And I've spent three years thinking this is how it should be
The city didn't love me
The city didn't cheat me

I throw back the mountain
Oh how I try to be a good person, how I try
But the worst kind of lonely is when I'm all alone and baby you're by my side

Come on now, hold onto somebody tight
If everybody falls it looks like everybody's fine
Remember your name when you walk to the podium..

And if I've ever gotta be by myself
God help me…cos I'm empty
And if I've ever gotta be by myself
God help me
Cos I'm empty, I'm empty

Come on now, hold onto somebody tight,
If everybody falls – it looks like everybody's fine
Remember your name when you walk to the podium.
When you walk to the podium
When you walk to the podium


4. Know My Heart

Take me to the water
Take me where the days are long
I need to see the people who sing to the ocean
Cos I've got nothing left here
I've got no more air to breathe
It's like I'm suffocating, a heart hibernation

He's still making love to me
Oh he's still making love to me yeah
He's still making love to me
Oh he's still making love to me yeah
And I don't care what he says to you
And I don't care what he wants from you

I know my heart
I know my heart
I know to keep it loving can be so hard
I don't know why, don't know who I am
But I find myself in lovin everywhere I can

Don't tell me to let go now
I can't walk away like that
No it's not the person that I wanna be now

God only knows I'm trying
I try to pull the pieces to me
I don't know what the truth is a
And if I can believe it

He's still making love to me
Oh he's still making love to me yeah
He's still making love to me
Oh he's still making love to me yeah
And I don't care what he says to you
And I don't care what he wants from you

I know my heart
I know to keep it loving can be so hard
I don't know why, don't know who I am
But I find myself in lovin everywhere I can


5. Into My Garden

Into the minds of the world,
Aspire to know everyone inside out
Inviting them into my garden
And I will smile coz I want to make everyone feel safe
Come into my, Into my garden

Share with me
Share with me
Cos I wanna share with you
Share with me
Share with me
Cos I wanna share with you

And I refuse to believe there is no love
So I will grow some in my garden
And if you refuse to believe there is no more humanity
Come into my garden

Come into my
Into my garden

Into the minds of the world
Aspire to know everyone inside out
Inviting them into my garden

Share with me
Share with me
Cos I wanna share with you
Share with me
Share with me
Cos I wanna share with you

And I refuse to believe there is no love
So I will grow some in my garden
And If you refuse to believe there is no more humanity
Come into my garden

Come into my, into my garden


6. World Of Descendings

These words in front of me
They blur and make me dizzy
I can't make sense of myself
I drink from broken teacups
I'll follow rosy meadows
While I am on my pillow
And if I wake tomorrow
I'll learn to keep my sorrow

As we begin descending
You hold my hand
Embrace in me this moment
And we will feel the…

Rain down on me
If only I could run my hands over the wet grass green
It doesn't matter which side I'm on I will always be
In this world of descendings

I sit beneath myself
Controlled by wealth and empty
The win just makes me crazy
But I am bound and lazy

As we begin descending
You hold my hand
Embrace in me this moment
And we will feel the...

Rain down on me
If only I could run my hands over the wet grass green
It doesn't matter which side I'm on I will always be
In this world of descendings

Suddenly I'm covered in lies
Come from a world that could eat me up alive
And you are not my friend
Suddenly with the window wound tight
I can see my reflection i
n the sky
But I am not your sin

These words in front of me,
they blur and make me dizzy…


7. Maternal Abuses

There's a mother that uses maternal abuses
To get past the guards, bombs under blouse and they say
She's been hurt before
And the night brings a silence between you and I
It's broken by sirens, screams in the night
They say we should lock our doors

There's enough things killing us off
Without us killing ourselves
I've had enough of turning my head
We get blinded by that

I remember the green grass over the footpath
And doors had the purpose of keeping the flies out
Just keeping the flies out
And I could walk home without my hood over
And people I met, I'd likely remember
I don't know your name

There's enough things killing us off
Without us killing ourselves
I've had enough of turning my head
We get blinded by that

There's a mother that uses maternal abuses
To get past the guards, bombs under blouse and they say
She's been hurt before


8. Breathe

My mind is not my friend,
Just pretends to be
when everything is going right
Tell's me that I can't breathe
But I know I can
I just have to breathe in

Just have to breathe in
Just have to breathe in
Just have to breathe in
I know I can

My mind's no good to me
Just pretends to be
When everything is going right
Tell's me that I've done this
And together, we'll conquer and divide

Just have to breathe in
Just have to breathe in
Just have to breathe in

Halleluiah
Just let your thoughts move through ya
Halleluiah
Just let your thoughts move through ya
I know I can

Just have to breathe in
Just have to breathe in
Just have to breathe in

I know I can


9. No More Stealing

If you don't return it
I'll have to replace it
No more stealin from me

If you don't respect it
I'll have to protect it
If I cover it up from you
You won't be around no more

No more, no more stealin
No more stealin from me
I catch you walking out that door
With my heart in your hands
You're talking to me like you never knew what we had
We were so close
It doesn't make sense to be alone now

If you take it slowly
I won't find it missing
Till one day I'm alone and I won't feel a woman no more

No more, no more stealin
No more stealin from me

If you take it quickly
You won't even catch me
I'll be walking out that door
Watch me walking and broken watch me walkin' I'm broken

I catch you walking out that door with my heart in your hands
You're talking to me like you never knew what we had
We were so close
It doesn't make sense to be alone now

If you take it slowly
I won't find it missing
Till one day I'm alone and I won't feel a woman no more


10. Pickin' Bones

Why won't the sun come out?
Why won't these people just smile on the tube lines?
Picking bones with each other all day..

I want to hear that phone ring
I want to feel some good cheer
I'll call home when I can
You can call me any time
We've got vitamin D and I've got my Ipod

I know there's repercussions
I know that low the next day
But if we didn't go out
We'd be feeling nothing anyway
We've got vitamin D and I've got my ipod

Well I just played a minor
That might have changed the whole song
But I'm just starting to feel good
Why change the outcome?
Cos as long as I pay rent my money's spent
I've got something more important and I'll take care of that
I don't need new boots I've got my heart and I've got my ipod

Why won't the sun come out?
Why can't these people just smile on the tube lines?
Picking bones with each other all day...Oh Yeah

I want to hear that phone ring
I want to feel some good cheer
I'll call home when I can
You can call me any time

Cos as long as I pay rent my money's spent
I've got something more important and I'll take care of that
I don't need new boots I've got my heart – and I've got my ipod


11. Ellie's Kitchen

Oh Lover you never said a thing
All these years and not a single word escapes your lips
Until all this white snow
It paints your heart and lets you know
That seasons teach you more than colours and love can change you

If that's what it takes
If that's what it takes to set you free
That's what I'll do
If that's what it takes
If that's what it takes to set you free
That's what I'll do

If that's what it takes, my lover
To be careful of one another
If that's what it takes, my lover
To be careful of one another's hearts

Oh Lover I don't believe you came
All this way to let your dreams go slipping through your hands
And all this talk of change
It breaks my heart and let me know
That leaving wont take for forever and love can change you

If that's what it takes
If that's what it takes to set you free
That's what I'll do
If that's what it takes
If that's what it takes to set you free
That's what I'll do

If that's what it takes, my lover
To be careful of one another
If that's what it takes, my lover
To be careful of one another's hearts
