SOPHIA - 'HOLDING ON / LETTING GO' LYRICS

1. Strange Attractor
Some say the flutter of wings can cause mayhem
On the other side of the world
Well that’s a beautiful idea
And maybe that explains the strange attractor
Between boys and girls

But all I know
Yea I all I know
Is I’ll never know

All I know
All I know
Is I’ll never know

And as we fight between a science that tries to define us
And a nature that struggles and seems to defy us

All we know
Is we’ll never know everything


2. Undone. Again.
She said call me when your sky is falling
She said call me when the air begins to burn
And when all the little lies
All the little lies you sell yourself set in
Iíll be the last one, Iíll be the last one standing

To all the women I have loved
Youíre the ones Iím thinking of
When everything comes undone again

And to all the women I have loved
Youíre the ones Iím thinking of
As everything comes undone

She said call me when your heart is empty
When youíve finally cast away all that youíve held close
And when all the little lies
All the little lies you tell yourself set in
Iíll be the last one, Iíll be the last one waiting

To all the women I have loved
Youíre the ones Iím thinking of
When everything comes undone again

And to all the women I have loved
Youíre the ones Iím thinking of
As everything comes undone


3. Wait
And I know I should have said I loved you
And oh how my heart ached
But you said my silence said it all
And it’s OK you always saw it coming
As I whispered “Wait”

I’m sorry for the things I could never say

Yea I’d take it all back
Yea I’d take it all back
If I could
But you said you saw it coming on

And yea I’d take it all back
Yea I’d take it all back
But you said
Yea you said you saw it coming on

And I know I should have said “I love you”
But you said my silence said it all
And now it’s too late

And I’m sorry for the things I could never say

Yea I’d take it all back
Yea I’d take it all back
If I could
But you said you saw it coming on

And yea I’d take it all back
Yea I’d take it all back
But you said
Yea you said you saw it coming on


4. Alive
A slow walk
A long goodbye in the snow
Kiss at the station
And wonder
Is it enough to see us through the cold?

And shouldn’t this be all we need
If I love you and you love me
So why set fire to everything?
Are you only happy when everything’s burning?
Well it’s a lie
That you’ve got to hurt just to feel alive

Kiss at the station and wonder
Is it enough to see us through the cold?

And shouldn’t this be all we need
If I love you and you love me
So why set fire to everything?
Are you only happy when everything’s burning?
Well it’s a lie
That you’ve got to hurt just to feel alive


5. Gathering The Pieces
Didn’t you say
Aren’t we all just the same?
And when we pretend
It’s just a way to hide that we’re all afraid

And so we push and we pull
Until we see things break
And gather all the pieces and say
See what we’ve made
And through the tears apologise
Admit we’ve both made mistakes
We’re both just afraid
We were both just afraid

And yes it’s true what you say
That we’re all just the same
And that when we pretend
It’s just our way to hide that we’re all afraid

And so we push and we pull
Until we see things break
And then gather all the pieces and say
See what we’ve made
And through the tears apologise
Admit we’ve both made mistakes
We’re both just afraid
We’re both just afraid


6. Avalon
You laugh
Toss your hair and say
I’ll regret ever letting you go
But sweetheart what makes you think
I’ll ever be able to loosen your hold?

And can’t you see this hold you have on me?
And can’t you feel this hold you have on me?
And even if it hurts I couldn’t leave
Because my life needs this hurt you put on me

You laugh
Twist and turn and say
See you’ll regret ever letting me go
But sweetheart what makes you think
I’ll ever want to loosen your hold?

And can’t you see this hold you have on me?
And can’t you feel this hold you have on me?
And even if it hurts I wouldn’t leave
Because my life needs this hurt you put on me

And can’t you see this hold you have on me?
And can’t you feel this hold you have on me?
And even if it hurts I couldn’t leave
Because my life needs this hurt you put on me


7. Days
Feels so long since I felt true love
Forgot the difference between letting go and giving up
Might be bitterness, could be fatigue
All I know is it’s just a game I’m getting tired of playing

And I don’t know what we’ve got going on
But is it any better than just holding on?
We while away the days
Just as long as everything stays the same
As time slips away

I try to believe in fate
And believe in destiny
But you said some days it seems I don’t believe in anything
And here we are
What can I say?
But you said I ask to many questions anyway

So I don’t know what we’ve got going on
But is it any better than just holding on?
Seems like we while away the days
Just as long as everything stays the same
As time slips away

And I don’t know what we’ve got going on
But is it any better than just holding on?
We while away the days
Just as long as everything stays the same
As time slips away

We while away the days
Just as long as everything stays the same
As time slips away


8. Road Song
I didn’t think that you were lying
But we both knew the truth
I wasn’t born to see through walls
Yet always question the view

You said if you could hold the sunshine
And make my sky more blue
I wish that you could see yourself
the way that I see you

And why are you always your worst enemy?

And why are you always your worst enemy?
Aren’t there better things for you to be fighting?

I didn’t think that you were lying
But we both knew the truth
If only we could see
without the lives that we’ve been through

Why are our we always our worst enemies?

And why are we always our worst enemies?
Aren’t there better things for us to be fighting?

All the cuts and the scraps and the bruises and breaks
How much more can our hearts take?

So how did we become our own worst enemies?
Aren’t there better things to be fighting?


9. We See You (Taking Aim)
I see you taking aim
I see you taking aim
I see you taking aim
I see you taking aim

Another ache
Another pain
Another day just spent trying to fight the decay

Another lie
It’s all the same
Just more bullshit
So the new normal feels mundane

There ain’t no East
There ain’t no West
They’re just the one percent that think
“Yea fuck the rest”

We see you taking aim
We see you taking aim
But now we know the enemy


10. Prog Rock Arp (I Know)
