Teenage Years This morning, and every morning I wake unprepared. (I’m unprepared) Silence is the first thing I remember But then I am out here Out in my childhood and my teenage years Trees out here know me better than myself The wind is high and the day is open Then I am out here In my childhood and my teenage years Trees out here know me better than myself The wind is high and the day is open Today, and everyday I walk the house alone Forever alone (Forever) In waking and sleeping I am a creature without a tangible home Then I am out here In my childhood and my teenage years Trees out here know me better than myself The wind is high and the day is open

Said I could be your sugar pop You could be my coconut rough Do you have time for that? Gimme a call, hit me back Baby I’ve been hangin’ on Baby I’ve been hangin’ on Baby I’ve been hangin’ on and I don’t know if I’m quite ready for that… If you need to take time away Take the time to look at me and say If you need to take time away Take the time to look at me and say It won’t be easy but then what is When you got me hanging on like this I’m gonna move on either way I’m gonna move on either way

Dear Teri 04:25
Dear Teri, I don't think you know Just what I'm thinking of Yeah just what I'm thinking of It's funny that it has been so long Though we carry on, just where we left off You think it didn't mean that much It's all that I think about You think it didn't mean that much It's all that you think about It’s not too late to change your path To follow something you dream about There's nothing like a change of heart To follow something you feel I remember your yesterday Just like it was my own Was it my own? I recall all the words you say Recounting my story And how it touched me so You think it didn't mean that much It’s all that I think about You think it didn't mean that much It's all that you think about It’s not too late to change your path And follow something you dream about There's nothing like a change of heart To follow something you feel I dreamt that I was leaving when I woke up really missed you Baby I was sleeping when you woke up I was dreaming And I thought that I was leaving when I woke up really missed you Baby I was sleeping when I woke up you were dreaming Thought that I was leaving when I woke up really missed you Baby I was sleeping when you woke up I was dreaming I thought, you were leaving me behind, ooh Dear Teri, I don't think you know Just what I'm thinking of, just what I'm thinking of Just what I'm thinking of Just what I'm thinking of Just what I'm thinking of Just what I'm thinking of Ooh Ooh Ooh Oooh

Infinity Street I can see to infinity Set out on the road just like any other day Filled my fuel and I'm going away Driving down the sun is high Are you coming for a ride? Down on infinity street Although, it's killing me Was it two days or three days more And are we getting any closer to the end of the road Can still these sun is shining over me Never quite setting till infinity We're going on infinity street (We go to see the sun that's setting That's not the sun setting over me) Although - it's killing me (We go to see the sun that's setting That's not the sun setting over me) It seems we're making some progress Are we making any progress yet? There's nobody coming our way for days No-body's coming our way for days (We came to see the sun that's set) Don't forget to keep (We came to see the sun that's set) When you're down on it On infinity street We came the sun that's setting that's not the sun setting over me Going on, it's killing me We came the sun that's setting that's not the sun setting over me We're going on, infinity street We came the sun that's setting that's not the sun setting over me It's like a long long, every-body's watching me, (it's killing me) There are people who do this out there (it's killing me) Like it's a new form of video game (it's killing me) I am not one of them, no I don't know (it's killing me) How do they keep on driving don't they losing their souls I'm going all of the way, I’m going all of the way And I won't see the sun quite set, no I still can't see the sun quite set I'm going all of the way, I’m going all of the way And I still can’t see the sun set, No I won't see the sun quite set, On - infinity street (we go to see the sun…) We going on- it's killing me (we go to see the sun…) It’s killing me

Sui Zhen Melbourne, Australia

[Pronounced 'Sue-ee Chen']

New album Losing, Linda out on 27 September 2019.
