lyrics

It's sunset, I'm sitting at the beach
I still don't know where I'm gonna sleep
and right now I feel so lonely
And I feel like I shouldn't
because I'm always the one who preaches about
the importance of solitude

It's about time, I'm on the road again
I took my backpack, a tent and a ukulele
My to-do list for this trip is almost all ticked
I just didn't jump off that 50-metre cliff
I've learnt the basics of surfing
I've meditated and stretched
I've written four new songs
I made a few new friends
I've hiked along the west coast
and I've walked all the way till the end of the world
Standing at the lighthouse before the sea
and now I feel so empty
This place is filled with so many god-damn tourists
where are all the travellers and musicians
maybe it's just not the right time of the year

I've been going with the flow
I've been living without time
I've met stupid and great people
But there's a deep black hole all over me
and it's growing bigger and bigger
It's emptying my heart
it sucks and sucks
until all that's left is sorrow

And now all is sorrow
And now all is sorrow
And now all is sorrow
And now all is sorrow

I used to call it the pain of the world
trapped in my tiny caged heart
but now I'm reconsidering
that it might just be a deep craving
for some human contact with my own kind
And I'm embarrassed to say
but at this very moment
I'm feeling just like the last unicorn
staring at the white water
trying to catch a glimpse of my friends
But the story's been told
bull and king defeated
the unicorns all rushed out and scattered away
and they didn't even bother
to say hi to those that saved the day

I'm just looking for my people
I'm just looking for my own kind
I'm just searching for the souls close to mine
I'm just searching for the souls close to mine
It's the ones that make you feel like
now I am home
It's the ones that make you feel like
now you are home
It's the souls so close to yours that
now you are home
It's the souls so close to yours that
now you are home

Yeah you meet so many people on the way
but in your heart very few choose to stay
Let my soul rest in yours
even if it's just for an hour
To know there's people out there like you
that appreciate the same things that I do
It breaks my heart to say goodbye
but it also gives me courage
It breaks my heart to say goodbye
but it also gives me courage

And now all is sorrow
And now all is sorrow
And now all is sorrow
And now all is sorrow

you don't have to do it all on your own
you don't have to do it all on your own
it doesn't mean that
you're a weak and scared girl
it doesn't mean that
you're a weak and scared girl

to be a happy person
you first have to live
to be a happy artist
you first have to live
have I been taking my music too seriously
have I been taking my music too seriously

You won't recognise them
by the way that they dress
but if you look very closely
you'll recognise them
by the light around their heads
If you look very closely
you'll find them to be quite close
If you look very closely
you'll find them to be quite close
