lyrics

I got opinions on everything, and I think you should know I believe it's a good thing
I'm hyper-responsive, a little high maintenance, but at least I'm alive I can feel and experience
Years spent being afraid of emotion shut me down when the shit hit the fan
The greater your fears the deeper your ocean
So I got brave and I swam

Cos I used to hang around with oblivion, I used to deny how I feel
Then I met you and you told me the truth and you always keep it real
You said it's harder to live with a beating heart - it's easier to sink like a stone
And they'll tell you it's cool to be cold and aloof
But I'm not going down with that ship,
Cos the heart's made to float

I was down I was beat, hope was leeched, it was eating
Away at my soul, it was cold it was painful
Till slipping beneath the waves, I felt warm and safe,
It was dark and not so accidental
The scene had to play, it was sackcloth and ashes
But time is a healer and remorse is a lot less attractive...

Cos I used to hang around with oblivion, I used to deny how I feel
Then I met you and you told me the truth and you always keep it real
You said it's harder to live with a beating heart - it's easier to sink like a stone
And they'll tell you it's cool to be cold and aloof
But I'm not going down with that ship,
Cos the heart's made to float

Tell me the story of your life
Brush over the cracks and paint the colours black and white
Tell me it’s easy to live and hard to die
And I'll say it's a lie, an anaesthetising lie
