    Sold Out


I wrote this song after staring at a birthday card that has lived on top of my piano for the past 6 years. It's about standing up and stepping forwards.


The world is full of people who will go there whole lives and not actually live one day.
She did not intend on being one of them, she believed in moving mountains.
She believed in taking breath away, and touching every one of your senses.

She believed in giving things ago.
She believed in taking chances on the unknown.
She believed in striving forwards.

And never apologise for speaking your mind.
It's all that you had, at one point in time.
You must never apologise for speaking your mind.
It's all that you had, at one point in time.

The world is full of strangers who believe in all the dangers that can come from stepping outside your front door.
Oh they don't move forwards, they don't even move backwards, they stay right there in the known.
Sometimes it's easier to close the blinds and pretend you cant see outside.

But if you do that, I promise you.
There are so many things you will lose.
Remaining secluded won't do you no good.

Just come out, it's nice here, the sun is shining down.
The bees will not sting you, you won't be swallowed by the ground.
The air is so cooling, it will calm your fears down.
Come out, it's nice here, the world is turning round.
