LYRICS

1. Start Over

See I think I drowned the other day
My heart was torn, but my body was set to leave it all
And I took her hand to say as much I would love just to stay here
There’s things I owe to the world above, to the world above
 
Can I tell you all the things that I’ve learnt out on the streets
Is angels come in forms of dogs and girls, babies I meet
Can I tell you all the things
I ever learnt in love was how to howl
Now that I prefer to feel it all, to feel it all

So if we could start over, somewhere 10 feet underwater
If we could start over again
So if we could start over, somewhere 10 feet underwater
Would we start over again, again
See if we had gills we never would have learnt how to swim
How to swim, how to swim

And it breaks my heart everyday
Seeing things that I wish weren't going on
But before I can give you depth there is 6 or 7 seas left between
Who I am and who I will become, who I will become
 
Can I tell you all the things that I’ve learnt out on the streets
Is angels come in forms of dogs and girls, babies I meet
Can I tell you all the things
I ever learnt in love was how to howl
Now that I prefer to feel it all, to feel it all

So if we could start over, somewhere 10 feet underwater
If we could start over again
So if we could start over, somewhere 10 feet underwater
Would we start over again, again
See if we had gills, we never would have learnt how to swim
How to swim, how to swim

And there’s things I’ve done that I’m not proud of
Like going to SeaWorld, or being on my phone when I'm driving alone
But if I need, and if we need a way out you can take my hands drag me down, drag me down
Lover you can lift me up
 
Just say love I need you more, I need you more
Than all the oxygen that your lungs adore
Just say love that I need you more, I need you more,
Than all the oxygen that your lungs adore
C’mon now
Just say love that I need you more, I need you more,
Than all the oxygen your lungs adore
C’mon now
Just say love that I need you more, I need you more,
Than all the oxygen your lungs adore
 
If we could start over, somewhere 10 feet underwater
Would we start over again
So if we could start over, somewhere 10 feet underwater
Would we start over again, again
See if we had gills, we never would have learnt how to swim
How to swim, how to swim

2. Tell Me (The Hoddevik Song)

I’ve been finding it hard to say how I feel, as of late
There’s a depth to my fatigue, it’s getting hard to explain
There’s a dirt on my skin and it doesn’t seem to wash off
Set sail or call to port, this wind’s tying round my neck in knots

And I won’t stand by you when you’re smoking cigarettes
Oh I adore your warmth in my lungs, not that pain in my chest
I feel like a man gone blind in the warmth of the sun, so
Teach me braille I can learn to map your body like the stars above

‘Cause I didn’t know how to say that I needed help
And I wasn’t very good at looking after my health
Tell me, tell me, are we going to stay here (love, no)
‘Cause I didn’t know how to say that I needed help
And I wasn’t very good at looking after myself
Tell me, tell me, are we going to stay here (love, no)
If you want me to leave just say I’ve got to go
If you want me to stay then love don’t be shy invite me home

And the river flows better when the nets aren’t filling up with stones
Like the sea there ain't a day in recent years that I’m not tired anymore
There’s a man in the mirror, but no king to the throne
And you're a queen with a sweetness like the morning lights on the fjords
 
So tell me how are we going to change
When you want to stay put
And I’m always away and I can hear
The change in my voice on the phone breaking up
Pieces of the styrofoam from places where the tide’s been low

‘Cause I didn’t know how to say that I needed help
And I wasn’t very good at looking after my health
Tell me, tell me, are we going to stay here (love, no)
‘Cause I didn’t know how to say that I needed help
And I wasn’t very good at looking after myself
Tell me, tell me, are we going to stay here (love, no, no, no)
If you want me to leave just say I’ve got to go
If you want me to stay then love don’t be shy invite me home

3. Runaway

You see well, I remember how you said
That sometimes it gets just a little hard being home
There's sand stuck in my bed and memories in my head
Love I've been trying to let this whole thing go

See it was late, I dropped you home ‘cause we were sober
And you said, "Well why don't you stay?"
I said "Love, it's just a little late for you to be seeing me this way"

See I, well I kept my guard up because you let me down
But you can't blame that I wasn't always around
See I kept my guard up because you were the one to runaway
See I, well I kept my guard up in case you let me down (no)
But you can't blame that I wasn't always around
See I kept my guard up because you were the one to runaway
You were the one to runaway

You see well, I remember how you said
That sometimes it gets just a little hard being alone
There's sand stuck in my head and memories of us in bed
See love I'm still trying to let this whole thing go
 
And it was late when I dropped you home ‘cause we were sober
And you said "Well why don't you stay?"
I said "Love, it's just a little late for you to be seeing me this way"

See I, well I kept my guard up because you let me down
But you can't blame that I wasn't always around
See I kept my guard up because you were the one to runaway
See I, well I kept my guard up in case you let me down (no)
But you can't blame that I wasn't always around
See I kept my guard up because you were the one to runaway
You were the one to runaway

Oh well I need, well I need these kisses like they're free
Her voice sings to me when I hear her calling, when I hear her calling
She gives me kisses like she needs me and it's so sweet
Because I know that she doesn't
But I need these kisses like they're free
Her voice sings to me when I hear her calling, when I hear her calling
And she gives me kisses like she needs me and it's so sweet
Because I know that she doesn't

See I, well I kept my guard up because you let me down
But you can't blame that I wasn't always around
See I kept my guard up because you were the one to runaway
See I, well I kept my guard up in case you let me down (no)
But you can't blame that I wasn't always around
See I kept my guard up because you were the one to runaway, runaway
 
You, you, mmm
You were the one to runaway
You were the one to runaway
You were the one to runaway

4. Better Off (The Captain Planet Song)

And these months went by so sweet
I met her down by the stream and she was pure
Like honeycomb on the fire, dew in the north
And she tugged on my sleeves asking "Where you going?"
"I've been baking you cookies you can leave in the morning"
I, I want you around
 
But see I’m drawn to your flames like a moth to the fold
In these old pair of jeans unwashed in your wardrobe
I'm caught at the seams of who I’ll become
Can be a man to the sea and the needs to your love

And if I could be your Captain Planet would you be my girl?
And together we could save the world
Here on out
I will do my best to be someone you deserve
We can say to other people
Look I'm better off with her
(x2)
 
I'm better off with her
And I'm better off with her
(x2)
 
Don’t let me down

And these months went by so sweet
We jumped overboard, company wherever I go
She said “Let’s leave in the morning, been knitting you a jumper for when it gets colder”
She puts my head in her hands, whenever I'm feeling low
Or if I feel like I’ve kept, too much from words that I chose
And there’s rust on my frame, or was I sitting to close?
Is it salt in my palms or have I been here before?

And if I could be your Captain Planet would you be my girl?
And together we could save the world
Here on out
I will do my best to be someone you deserve
We can say to other people
Look I'm better off with her
(x2)
 
I'm better off with her
And I'm better off with her
(x2)

But I'm no good for your daughter
‘til I've learned to breathe underwater
But she’s been coaxing me under, telling me how
She'll be holding my hands if I make it around
And I'm no good for your daughter
‘til I've learned to breathe underwater
But she’s been coaxing me under telling me how
She'll be holding my hands if make it around

If I could be your Captain Planet would you be my girl?
And together we could save the world
Here on out
I will do my best to be someone you deserve
We can say to other people
Look I’m better off with her
(x2)
 
If I could be your Captain Planet would you be my girl?
And together we could save the world
Here on out
I will do my best to be someone you deserve
And we can say to other people (no, no, no)
And if I could be your Captain Planet would you be my girl?
And together we could save the world
Here on out
I will do my best to be someone you deserve
And we can say to other people
 
I'm better off with her
Oh oh, I’m better off with her
And I'm better off with her
Oh oh, and I’m better off with her
 
And I’m better off with her (x3)
 
I’m better off with her
I’m better off with her, oh love
Don’t let me down

5. Four Feet In The Forest

And we'll watch the greens grow
We spent our times trying to get back to the rivers
And how we've come
To see our footprints here to kingdoms done
See I've got my own set of fears and doubts
Like would you want me, if I was always around?

‘cause there's times when I feel like my eyes
I’m worn but I'm young I’m worn but I'm young, oh oh
And like these north winds some things come around here
When you don't want them, but
We need time to the ground where the greens grow tall
Above and below
I want, I want you alone, I want you alone
I want you alone, I want you alone

See there’s things that I need you to hear
Like how I want you close, you’re the one if I can hold you dear
You make me hold my breath
When your lips are pressed upon the top of my ears
And I said how I, wish that I had the words to explore
All of all of the colours on your tongue and our wet feet here on the floorboards
 
And how I wish that I had the world to explain
How all, how all of the colours on your tongue
And the colours in the sky are the same

‘cause there's times when I feel like my eyes
I’m worn but I'm young I’m worn but I'm young, oh oh
And like these north winds some things come around here
When you don't want them, but
We need time to the ground where the greens grow tall
Above and below
I want, I want you alone, I want you alone
I want you alone, I want you alone

Said four feet in the forest
I want you alone, I want you alone
(x2)
Said Four feet in the forest
I want you, I want you
Said feet in the forest
I want you alone

‘cause there's times when I feel like my eyes
I’m worn but I'm young I’m worn but I'm young, oh oh
And like these north winds some things come around here
When you don't want them, but
We need time to the ground where the greens grow tall
Above and below
I want, I want you alone, I want you alone
Four feet in the forest
I want you, I want you
Four feet in the forest
