Track Name: The Earth's Catacombs
It started out so innocently
Afraid of what I might find
I went underground
To hide, hide
so you could not find me
Cocooned, in the earth’s catacombs
I grew, grew
I grew, grew

Shields of armour covered me
A mask grew over my face
When I came out, I was - untouchable
Untouchable, but was I free?

CHORUS
When will I be ready
Be ready for love?
Be ready for love?

A lightness overcame me
Held me above all I could see
My armour, so strong
Nobody could touch me
I put a knife into your heart
trying to be free

I took myself down
behind the willow trees
Tied myself to the ground
to find some roots here
Who are, who are, who are

CHORUS
When will I be ready, be ready
Be ready for love?
Be ready for love?

Open the door it’s coming X2

CHORUS
I’m going to let it in, let it in
I’m going to let it in
I’m going to let it in, let it in
I’m going to let it in

I’m not going to hide anymore
Track Name: She Says
She says to leave it alone
but what does she know about our love

He brings me flowers from other people’s gardens
and places them upon the crown of my head
The crown of my head

The colours fly across me and land upon my body
in every shade that I can see love comes to me

We watched the rising sun, you gave it to me
but I can not watch such a blinding sacrifice
Sacrifice

But then you shot the glass, I found splinters in my chest
again, again
Again
