Fake It Til You Make It

Lyrics

A black and white movie 

Set in a blizzard in a war 

Huddled up so tight

In a cave, I can’t be found 

                 

Please do not judge me

I’m still inside me

     

Fake it until you make it       

Be strong you got a true friend                                 

Sunshine and a smile                                   

Been away for a while 

You know sunshine and a smile 

Will come back but in a while 


More and now forever 

shoes seem nailed to the floor

What was me I feel is gone 


Escape’s  around the corner

A beast is following

Beyond the lake, beyond a stream


Please do not judge me

I’m still inside me

 

Fake it until you make it       

Be strong you got a true friend                                 

Sunshine and a smile                                   

Been away for a while 

You know sunshine and a smile 

Will come back but in a while 


And then I breathe, a  different breath

A light, a smile, meditation            

Now I can feel the music 

How it moves the air around me


Fake it

       

Fake it until  you make it      

Be strong you got a true friend                                

Sunshine and a smile / Please do not judge me                             

Been away for a while / I’m still inside me

You know sunshine and a smile / Please do not judge me

Will come back    but in a while / I’m still inside me


Fake it until  you make it      

Be strong you got a true friend                                

Sunshine and a smile / Please do not judge me                             

Been away for a while / I’m still inside me

You know sunshine and a smile / Please do not judge me

Will come back    but in a while / I’m still inside me

 

Sunshine and a smile sometimes they just hide

You know sunshine and a smile, they’re always inside


We faked it and now we’re making it

We’re strong cause we’ve got good friends

Sunshine and a smile, 

Sometimes they just hide

You know sunshine and a smile,

They’re always inside


We faked it and now we’re making it

We’re strong cause we’ve got good friends

Sunshine and a smile, 

Sometimes they just hide

You know sunshine and a smile,

They’re always inside

 

Digging It Up

Lyrics

Another  day, another bender

Too gone to play my fender!

Drop a pill, take a swill 

It’s easy now but I’ll pay a bill 

I’m Running, but the ghost re-appears

Playing with all of my fears.     


They tried to tell me 

That the only way to get to sleep 

Is to bury the memories so deep 


But oh lord I now see, I see

That the only way to survive 

Is to face  those memories alive 

                                                                                             

Another  woman, what a girl 

Man I think her name was Shirl !

It’s a blast, I have no past  

Going fine but it ain’t  gonna last 

I’m sinking, sinking, but  they’re  not there 

I’m better than this shit,  I swear  

       

You know that people come in two kinds

Some give and others play with your mind


Another  day, another bender

Too gone to even play my fender!

Drop a pill, take a swill 

It’s easy now but I’ll pay a bill 

I’m Running, Running, they’re  kinda there 

Taking it all in;  I swear 


They tried to tell me 

That the only way to get to sleep 

Is to bury the memories so deep 


But oh lord I now see, I see

That the only way to survive 

Is to face  those memories alive 


But oh lord I now see, I see …….                                                                           

I gottaIs  face  those memories  ,

I wanna sedate those memories 

I wanna place those memories 

I wanna placate those memories 

I wanna trace those memories

I want to accept those memories

And stay alive 

 

Firies - If Tears Were Rain

Lighting bolt hits and it’s started 


In the bush, summer like no other 


A gentle glow on the land


Wind and heat starts another 


And the inferno has began 



We call them all firies, 


but here’s what I see 


Dads and mums, daughters and sons


Sweating it out ‘til it’s all done 


And while they’ll never say it aloud 


They’re all heroes that make us so PROUD




If tears were rain we would


Win this war 



They’ll never forget 


Just what they saw 




No time to play the political divide 


While our wildlife chokes  through embers


Those who have lost way way too much 


We share our pain, one nation together


We’ll never lose our human touch 




We call them all firies, 


but here’s what I see 


Dads and mums, daughters and sons


Sweating it out ‘til it’s all done 


And while they’ll never say it aloud 


They’re all heroes that make us so PROUD



If tears were rain we could


Win this war 



They’ll never forget 


Just what they saw
