They Weren't There

In the style of

Missy Higgins

Lyrics

you breathed infinity
into my world

and time was lost up
in a cloud and in a whirl

we dug a hole in the cool grey
earth and lay there

for the night

then you said
wait for me we'll fly the wind

we'll grow old and you'll be
stronger without him

but, oh, now
my world is at your feet

i was lost and i was found

but i was alive and

now i've drowned

so now i will be waiting
for the world to hear my song

so they can tell me
i was wrong

but they weren't
there beneath your stare

and they weren't stripped
till they were bare

of any bindings from

the world outside that room

they weren't taken
by the hand

and led through fields
of naked land

where any pre-conceived ideas
were blown away

so i couldn't say no

you sighed and
i was lost in you

weeks could've past
for all i knew

you were there blanket
of the over-world

and so i couldn't say
i wouldn't say no

but they all said
you're too young to even know

just don't let it grow and
you'll be stronger without him

but oh, now
my world is at your feet

i was lost and i was found

but i was alive

and now i've drowned

now i will be waiting
for the world to hear my song

so they can tell me
i was wrong

but they weren't
there beneath your stare

and they weren't stripped
till they were bare

of any bindings from the world

outside that room

and they weren't taken
by the hand

and led through fields
of naked land

where any pre-conceived ideas

were blown away

but they weren't
there beneath your stare

and they weren't stripped
till they were bare

of any bindings from

the world outside that room

and they weren't taken
by the hand

and led through fields
of naked land

where any pre-conceived ideas
were blown away

so i couldn't say no
