Verse 1

Who’s gonna talk you down
When you’re tip-toeing on the edge
Cos the voices are getting louder
And messing with your head


Verse 2

Who’s gonna be your safety net
Tell you over and over again
That the worst of it is over
Just be brave a little longer

Chorus

I’m here, I won’t let go of ya
I’m here, who else really knows ya
I’ll be with you to face, the ghosts and the monsters
Don’t be afraid of the dark, I got ya

I’m here, when you’re crying and shaking
I’m here, when you feel like you’re breaking
Searching the closet and under the bed
If that’s what it takes, to put your mind at rest
I’m here, I’m here

Verse 3

I will stay up with you all night
Check the noises by the torchlight
I will be your lookout while you sleep
You can count on me

Bridge

Sometimes I get tired and I wish that it would all stop
Sometimes I start thinking, I could just give up
Sometimes it all gets too hard
And then I look at you,
Then I look at you

Chorus

I’m here, I won’t let go of ya
I’m here, who else really knows ya
I’ll be with you to face, the ghosts and the monsters
Don’t be afraid of the dark, I got ya

I’m here, when you’re crying and shaking
I’m here, when you feel like you’re breaking
Searching the closet and under the bed
If that’s what it takes, to put your mind at rest
I’m here, I’m here, I’m here, I’m here
(I’m here, I’m here, I’m here, I’m here)

Wildflowers


Verse 1

Painted a pretty rainbow on the bedroom wall
Gonna have to hide it when the landlord calls
I don’t care cos I just wanna see you smile
Even if it’s only for a little while

Verse 2

Drew pictures of a bright yellow sunshine
In a blue, blue sky
And put them in every window
Cos you won’t go outside
And that’s ok, maybe it will only be today
The world can wait til you’re ready to come out and play

Chorus

I’ll pick you wildflowers
The ones you said look like weeds
I think they’re beautiful and
They look like proper flowers to me
And I promise I’ll still love ya
Like you always ask me to
But the truth is baby, I can’t see myself with no-one but you
Cos the truth is baby, there ain’t no-one in this world like you

Bridge

And when you’re feeling better, we can go climb trees
In the park behind our back yard
Then lay out in the dark, on the cool green grass
And count all the stars
We can stay there all night
Lay quietly, I don’t mind


Chorus

I’ll pick you wildflowers
The ones you said look like weeds
I think they’re beautiful and
They look like proper flowers to me
And I promise I’ll still love ya
Like you always ask me to
But the truth is baby, I can’t see myself with no-one but you
Cos the truth is baby, there ain’t no-one in this world like you


Chorus

I’ll pick you wildflowers
The ones you said look like weeds
I think they’re beautiful and
They look like proper flowers to me
And I promise I’ll still love ya
Like you always ask me to
But the truth is baby, I can’t see myself with no-one but you
Cos the truth is baby, there ain’t no-one in this world like you

Crashing

Verse 1

Looks like I’m losing you today
Not your fault, you’re just wired that way
Tripping out and spinning ‘round
You’ll come back, when you’re coming back down

Verse 2

You can’t see the woods for the neon trees
Up in your tower looking down at me
Nothing I haven’t already seen
Matter of time, til you come crashing

Chorus

When the high kicks in and you’re dancing on the moon
Wanna ride the rollercoaster all afternoon
Til you’re crashing, crashing
Then the walls go up and the silence breeds
And you won’t even look at me
Cos you’re crashing, crashing
You’re crashing, crashing

Verse 3

Waiting outside the bathroom door
Til the quiet comes, so I can pick you up off the floor
And hold you til you’ve fallen asleep
And the demons have gone and you’re finally at peace

Verse 4

Tomorrow you’ll ask me, how bad it was
And I’ll lie a little and it’s because
Must be hard to keep all the noise away
Who am I to judge you, anyway


Chorus

When the high kicks in and you’re dancing on the moon
Wanna ride the rollercoaster all afternoon
Til you’re crashing, crashing
Then the walls go up and the silence breeds
And you won’t even look at me
Cos you’re crashing, crashing
You’re crashing, crashing

Chorus 2
I’m worn out and you are too
But somehow we make it through
When you’re crashing, crashing
I’ll be there on the hardest days
Do whatever, whatever it takes
When you’re crashing, crashing

Chorus

When the high kicks in and you’re dancing on the moon
Wanna ride the rollercoaster all afternoon
Til you’re crashing, crashing
Then the walls go up and the silence breeds
And you won’t even look at me
Cos you’re crashing, crashing
You’re crashing, crashing
