"The Sound Of White" by Missy Higgins, which was released in 2005 and consists of 8 songs.
All For Believing
Pull back the shield between us, and I'll kiss you,
Drop your defenses and come, into my arms.
I'm all for believing, I'm all for believing.
I'm all for believing if you can reveal the true colours within.
I know you blanket your mind so much that I am blind, but I,
I see you've painted your soul into your guard,
I'm all for believing, I'm all for believing
Any Day Now
How long, how long, how long
Will we take to come undone
If you know the answer tell me now
And I'll write up a calendar for our countdown
'Cause what if what we see is all, is all we've got
Well say you've kept some fire aside
To set alight to me some surprising night
And say you've locked some fire away
To set light to me some surprising day
Let's take the train to anywhere
I wanna feel the wind in my hair with you.
Let's tell them all, that soon they'll know
How very wrong they were to think we'd never go,
And if you tell me yours I'll tell you mine
And we will clean the cobwebs out of one anothers minds.
Don't ever say you've tried to leave me in this life
Don't ever say you've tried for the last time.
Katie was a little girl who said "I'll find a way".
Katie was a little girl who said "it'll be ok".
Till one day she found a little bit of something she used to drown.
She said "I'm alive and I am free, but you see I have control over me."
But will you draw the line?
Turn a blind eye to all the faces that you know?
And she said, " go".
Katie was a little girl who never found the way.
Just lay it all down. Put your face into my neck and let it fall out.
I knew before you got home.
This world you're in now,
It doesn't have to be alone,
I'll get there somehow, 'cos
I know I know I know
When, even springtime feels cold.
He left a card a bar of soap and a scrubbing brush next to a note that says "Use these down to your bones" and before I knew,
I had shiny skin and it felt easy being clean like him, I thought "This one knows better than I do"
A triangle trying to squeeze through a circle, he tried to cut me so I'd fit
And doesn't that sound familiar? Doesn't that hit too close to home? Doesn't that make you shiver: the way things could've gone?
And doesn't it feel peculiar when everyone wants a little more?
And so that I do remember to never go that far,
Could you leave me with a scar?
So we've put an end to it this time.
I'm no longer yours and you're no longer mine.
You said this hill looks far too steep
If I'm not even sure it's me you wanna keep.
And it's been ten days without you in my reach,
And the only time I've touched you is in my sleep.
But time has changed nothing at all -
You're still the only one that feels like home.
I've tried cutting the ropes and
This Is How It Goes
Suddenly I can't stay in this room.
You'll never sway, and I have nothing left that I can think of to say.
What do you want me to think of my thought?
Bear it in mind, if I cannot believe in me who will I then be?
And so I'll run but not too far, in case you chase me, oh...
But this is how it goes, baby.
I'll get angry at your words and I'll go home
And you won't call after me 'cos I'll be back before you know, you know...
