Lyrics

All lyrics written by Bjørn Thomassen.

HARD

Try to shut out the quiet
Pour it up and let it ease your mind
Recall how it tasted before me
A black screen trip hazard rewired
Old habits tend to what you’ll find
Alone and white girl wasted but you’re free

Be careful what you keep closest to your heart
Cos one day it might turn and tear you apart

Is it hard to forget everything that I said?
When chaos wreaks havoc inside of your head
I’ll pretend you let someone else take the blow
And maybe then you’ll let it go

The feels play out in blindsight
When darkness pins you down again
Does every flashback leave you cold?
When there’s no will to fight
And no peace found within the pain
Do you let me take ahold?

How could you ever see our end from the start

Is it hard to forget everything that I said?
When chaos wreaks havoc inside of your head
I’ll just pretend you let someone else take the blow
And then let it go
Is it hard to forget everything that I said?
When you breathe in the smoke does it fill you with dread?
I’ll pretend you let someone else take the blow
And maybe then you’ll let it go

What you gonna do
What you gonna do
Oh
x 4

Is it hard to forget everything that I said?
When you breathe in the smoke does it fill you with dread?
I’ll pretend you let someone else take the blow
Is it hard to forget everything that I said?
When chaos wreaks havoc inside of your head
I’ll pretend you let someone else take the blow
And maybe then you’ll let it go

COLD COMFORT

You said each word like you meant it
Every single time
But I never quite believed it
A habit I couldn’t kick
When every single high
Pushed me to my limit

When all the signs turned me away
And every door was closed
You always left me wanting more

Tell me again
Why I need you
Why it’s so hard to let go
Of a life that betrayed me
When I never let it show
Just how much I believed in giving us a go
So it’s a cold comfort knowing you’ll never know
Yeah it’s a cold comfort knowing you’ll never know

I ignored every mishap
And all of your white lies
Somehow it seemed like you were worth it
I breathed you in like a drug
Whilst completely lost in your eyes
Real life just wouldn’t cut it

When all the signs led me astray
With nowhere else to go
You always got me round for more

So tell me again
Why I need you
Why it’s so hard to let go
Of a life that betrayed me
When I never let it show
Just how much I believed in giving us a go
So it’s a cold comfort knowing you’ll never know
Yeah it’s a cold comfort knowing you’ll never know

You don’t know what you had
As it slipped out of your hands
You don’t what you lost
Until it’s gone
You don’t know what you had
As it slipped out of your hands
You don’t what you lost
Until it’s gone

SCREAM

I’ll take you out
Let’s go to a place we’ve never been before
Where everything’s different
Somewhere we won’t have to feel anymore

My heavy heart can’t lift you up
But I’ll be by your side
If only for tonight
Until these tears subside

And I’ll throw you a lifeline
When it’s getting hard to breathe
Don’t go out of your mind
Cos once you sink
No one can hear you scream
No one can hear you scream

When your blood runs cold (When your blood runs cold)
As you let the pain unfold
Remember you were told
There is life beneath the misery
And hiding away
Won’t ever set you free

So I’ll throw you a lifeline
When it’s getting hard to breathe
Don’t go out of your mind
Cos once you sink
No one can hear you scream
No one can hear you scream

So I’ll throw you a lifeline
When it’s getting hard to breathe
Don’t go out of your mind
Cos once you sink
No one can hear you scream
No one can hear you scream

DISPARITY

I wake up alone in the dark with your voice echoing right through me
What’s now just a mark keeps stinging
An ending fading, but bad as can be
I can’t pretend to forget
The idea of us overshadowed every regret
Through each night you’re all I see

All the lies pushed me through
And my dishonesty failed me too
It paved my way
When I crossed the line

Now I can’t erase what we could have been
And I can’t replace what I left wayside when you’re gone
I gave my pride
So you’ve won
So you’ve won

I wish I could tell you (I wish I could tell you)
Just where I went wrong (Just where I went wrong)
How I turned so heartless and lost foresight
With what I had done

But those lies pushed me through
And the disparity failed me too
My mistakes then drew the line

Now I can’t erase what we could have been
And I can’t retrace what we left wayside when you’re gone
I gave my pride
So you’ve won

There we were, by the side of the road
My head in my hands
The flames dissolved the wreckage
But not my deceit as it stands
Cos when I lost control
I didn’t make a sound
So forgive me, but I was always gonna let you down

Now I can’t erase all that has been
And I can’t retrace who I was now he’s been outdone
There’s no going back
Now that you’re gone

NUMB

You and I seemed so right to begin with
Picture perfect, great on paper
What the hell was I even on
Cos I can pinpoint the exact moment I realised
The battle fought, you’d won

Our bodies intertwined, your hand a perfect fit in mine
Now all we had has only turned into regret down the line

I was insane
Hoping you could change
You’ll always be the one my eyes met
Across that crowded floor
Was all in vain
Cos you never let me in
Out of my mind and I must have been blind
I’m numb to the core
I was a fool just like before

How could I get it so wrong
When we always lost our way
I put up with your shit
And I don’t know how I let you stay

You were bad news
And I knew it from the start
But you went on to play your part brilliantly
So you could place the blame on me

I was insane
Waiting on you to change
You’ll always be the one you were
All those many boys before
Was all in vain
Cos you never let me in
Out of my depth and it felt so wrong
I’m numb to the core
I was a fool just like before

So you didn’t think it’d sting so hard
That love could ever turn you down or tear into your heart
You never saw it coming, my makeshift life imploding
On the day we fell apart

I was insane
Thinking you could change
You’ll always be the one who made love feel like war
Was all in vain
Cos I always let you in
You made me weak when I should have been strong
I’m numb to the core
I was a fool but now no more

DISCO DAMAGED

(You’ll never be the same)

You’ve been hiding a world of confusion inside you
You think no one knows how you feel but they do
You’ve been fooling yourself thinking life would be better without this
Dimmed lights, big beats, shifty eyes and that one last kiss

You’ll never be the same
You’ll never be the same
You’ll never be the same
Now you’re damaged goods

(You’ll never be the same)

You’ve been walking among post-war grey brutalist concrete
The sound of your footsteps drowned out by your own heartbeat
You’ve been living a lie too big for your conscience to carry
As no matter what you do you can’t forget what you could be

How could anyone get to you
While you’re treading old ground like you do
Each lonely night you search the discos
As if they could save you now
Cos with everything you’ve seen
You’re haunted by the ghost
Of what could have been

You’ll never feel the same
You’ll never feel the same
You’ll never feel the same
Now you’re damaged goods

How could anyone get to you
While you’re treading old ground like you do
Each lonely night you search the discos
As if they could save you now
Cos with everything you’ve seen
You’re haunted by the ghost
Of what could have been

You’ll never be the same
So you’re never gonna love again
You’ll never be the same
So you’re never gonna love again
You’ll never be the same
Now you’re damaged goods
So you’re never gonna love again
