another place to fall lyrics – kt tunstall

are you blind
blind to me trying to be kind
volunteering for your firing line
waiting for one precious sign
the flicker of a smile
you should try it just once in a while
maybe it’s not quite your style
it’s simply too easy to do
and you might not see it through

are you proud
to have founded a brand new behaviour
with hatred and hurt as your saviour
but n*body’s choosing to follow
so you choke back the tears and you swallow
men who have ruined your life
you consume them with minimum strife
but now you have got indigestion
the antacid comes as a question

find yourself another place to fall
find yourself up against another brick wall
see yourself as a fallen angel
well i don’t see no holes in the road but you
find another place to fall

are you alive
is there a young woman hiding inside
does she know that we’re trying to help her
is she totally frozen with fear
if you let her come out for a day
she might even like it and stay
but it’s gonna take you to invite her
coz you seem so determined to spite her

find yourself

there isn’t much more i can say
for i don’ [t understand the delay
you’re asking for friendly advice
and remaining in permanent crisis
affection is yours if you ask
but first you must take off your mask
when you’re back’s turned i’ve decided i’ll throw it away just like i did

find yourself
