What can I say about myself? I'm Australian in USA. BBC Radio 2 artist.

Most of the time I am a singer/songwriter/touring artist and guitarist....the rest of the time I am just a Dingo in LosT Angeles. ... more

Track Name: Hearts Don't Bend
You put me in a suitcase, to follow your lead
Nice and neat, but I could barely breathe
I came for the view but I was in the dark
You held me 'til I nearly fell apart
So I opened up and jumped out before it got too late,
but I gotta say, gotta say

Didn't anybody tell you that's more than I could take
Didn't anybody mention that Hearts don't bend, they break.

Put my heart in a jar, to try to keep it safe
Was trapped inside no way to escape.
Held your ear to the glass and shook me all around
I called your name, you didn't hear the sound
So I smashed through to exit and finally ran away,
I just gotta say, gotta say

Didn't anybody tell you that's more than I could take
Didn't anybody mention that Hearts don't bend, they break.

You squeezed me and tried to fit me in your pocket
If it's love you want, then don't you know you got it
Don't fold me to hold me, I'm not made of paper.
So long I'll be, Seeing u later

Didn't anybody tell you that's more than I could take
Didn't anybody mention that Hearts don't bend, they break. they break.

Didn't anybody tell you that's more than I could take
Didn't anybody mention that Hearts don't bend, they break.

Hearts don't bend, they break.
Track Name: Not Who You Say
You fought the bulls in Barcelona, drilled for oil in Oklahoma,
Surfed your way through California. Ain't that cool.
You climbed the mountains 'round the world, dug for gold and swam for pearls,
now all you want is just one girl to give your heart to.
You must think I'm a fool.

Coz I know how you play the game.
Takes more than words to pull my chain.
Don't even try to steal my heart.
I hate to cut you down to size,
the truth is right there in your lies.
Go on and play the part you're
Not Who You Say you are.

So keep on coming onto me. Dropping names but honestly.
You think I'll get what you promised me? Yeah, Alright.
Maybe one day, but not tonight.

Coz I know how you play the game.
Takes more than words to pull my chain.
Don't even try to steal my heart.
I hate to cut you down to size,
the truth is right there in your lies.
Go on and play the part you're
Not Who You Say you are.

You're just a poser. Your act is over.
How's this for closure. Goodbye.

Coz I know how you play the game.
Takes more than words to pull my chain.
Don't even try to steal my heart.
I hate to cut you down to size,
the truth is right there in your lies.
Go on and play the part you're
Not Who You Say you are.

Coz I know how you play the game.
Takes more than words to pull my chain.
Don't even try to steal my heart.
I hate to cut you down to size,
the truth is right there in your lies.
Go on and play the part you're
Not Who You Say you are.

You're not who you say you are.
Track Name: Lay It All Down
She wears your heart upon her crown, forgets that it is fragile
A jewel to add to all the rest, like you're replaceable
You don't know very well, I never introduced myself
It might be forward of me, but I know what you need

Lay it all down, throws your hands up and surrender
Coz I wanna be with you
Lay it all down, wave the white flag and surrender.
Coz I wanna be with you

She thinks that life is a stage , she's putting on a big show
White lies in a grand parade, you watch her from the front row
But coloured lights just leave u blind, I'm sitting here if you'd take the time
To beat my heart like a drum, and say that I'm the one

Lay it all down, throws your hands up and surrender
Coz I wanna be with you
Lay it all down, wave the white flag and surrender.
Coz I wanna be with you

Don't you see that it's me and I'm over the edge this time.
She don't care and I want to be there now I got you in my sight

Lay it all down, throws your hands up and surrender
Coz I wanna be with you
Lay it all down, wave the white flag and surrender.
Coz I wanna be with you

Lay it all down, throws your hands up and surrender
Coz I wanna be with you
Lay it all down, lay yourself back and surrender.
Coz I wanna be with you
Lay it all down, wave the white flag and surrender.
Track Name: Crash Landing
I'm running every red light.
I just drive straight through
No, It wont be a pretty sight.
This much I can tell you

Foot to the pedal is never is fast enough
I'm sure I'll hit the wall, this is how I fall in love

Crash landing,
I don't understand it
This is so not like I planned it
But I'm crash landing

Mark an X there on your floor
That I can see from here
Bless me with signal,
Make it crystal clear

No matter what you're thinking, it wont change how I feel
You probably wont catch me I'm praying that you will

Crash landing,
I don't understand it
This is so not like I planned it
But I'm crash landing

Falling head first, down to the earth from the sky
This a blur, maybe this time I'll fly

Crash landing,
I don't understand it
This is so not like I planned it
But I'm crash landing, Oh
Crash Landing

I don't understand it,
I just drive straight through
Track Name: (We Started A) Fire
Your hands 'round my waist, It's an unknown world
I will take your name, Be your only girl
We're walking on water, But it's heating up inside
Trying to put the flames out, Coz we set something alight

I don't wanna stop before we started
But this is bigger than you and I
Slow it down before it burns out
We started, we started a fire, we started a fire.

Wearing your tshirt, In this waking dream
But I'm thinking right now, You'd look better on me
The Blaze taking over, Heart's like a shooting star
I can't say where it's going, Tonight we are what we are

I don't wanna stop before we started
But this is bigger than you and I
Slow it down before it burns out
We started a fire

I don't wanna wait a single moment
take a breath while the flames subside
slow it down before it burns out
We started, we started a fire

I pray it rains, and the sky will open up, temper the flame
I'm seeing sparks fly when I look into your eyes

I don't wanna stop before we started
But this is bigger than you and I
Slow it down before it burns out
We started a fire

I don't wanna wait a single moment
take a breath while the flames subside
slow it down before it burns out
We started, we started a fire
Track Name: I Can't Wait
Last plane boarding I'm sitting by the window
I'd get some sleep but it's so hard you know
At the carousel and suddenly a breakthrough
I know the three words I would say to you

When I open up my mouth to speak it, speak
it is everything I want. Can you see it?

I can't wait to tell you I'm crazy
what can I say, that's how you made me
I can't wait to tell you I love the way
You say my name, I can't wait

Setting sun, your eyes, waitin' for a green light
The touch of your hand gives me butterflies
kiss me for the first time, take me somewhere brand new
The sun comes up I'm lying next to you

World is spinning so fast I cant take it, take
The beating of my heart says we can make it.

I can't wait to tell you I'm crazy
what can I say, that's how you made me
I can't wait to tell you I love the way
You say my name, I can't wait

Who would have known, it was you all along
This time I am sure that I know what I want
I waited so long to say that we belong

I cant wait to tell you I'm crazy
what can I say, that's how you made me
I can't wait to tell you I love the way
you say my name, I can't wait

I can't wait to tell you I'm crazy
what can I say, that's how you made me
I can't wait to tell you I love the way
You say my name, I can't wait
ooh I can't wait
Track Name: Penelope
Old boots kick up the dust in this lonely town
Trying to shake the past that’s been following me around
When I look into the mirror, no matter how I try
There’s still dirt on my face, from making you cry

Coz I took a ride to Texas with some friends of old
Working hard to strike it lucky, bring back my weight in gold
With enough green in my pocket to the Kansas borderline
On my way home to you, I changed my mind

Penelope, Penelope, you’re everything I’d ever need
So hold me if you can, but I’m like water in your hands
Forgive me Penelope given time I hope you see
I couldn’t break your heart, so I’m not coming back
And Penelope you deserve much better than that

From the Colorado River up to the Northwest trail
I got me to Portland with a dream to set sail
Although you’re on the East coast waiting for my call now
I’d pick up the phone, but I’d be letting you down

I couldn’t find my sea legs, it was much too cold to bear
In Montana, worked the railroad for beer and hotel fare
Said I’d meet you at the station on the 25th of May
And I’m sure you were there, but I didn’t board the train

Penelope, Penelope, you’re everything I’d ever need
So hold me if you can, but I’m like water in your hands
Forgive me Penelope given time I hope you see
I couldn’t break your heart, so I’m not coming back
And Penelope you deserve much better than that

Penelope, I still love you my friend
But I don’t know what I will say if I see you again
Penelope, I just need some time
One day I’ll come back to you, I hope you’re doing just fine

Penelope, Penelope, you’re everything I’d ever need
So hold me if you can, but I’m like water in your hands
Forgive me Penelope given time I hope you see
I couldn’t break your heart, so I’m not coming back
And Penelope you deserve much better than that
Track Name: Save You The Trouble
Do you ever question yourself?
When it comes to you I need some help
I know that you've been hoping for rain
but this storm won't leave you the same

I'm breaking, and you can't save me
that's why i say goodbye before you leave

Tell me this isn't love, this isn't right
you don't need me in your life
trying to save you the trouble this time
No it's Not what you think, it's not black and white
Get out while you're still alive
I'm trying to save you the trouble this time

You start the fire then you get burnt
so take back the love that I cant return

I'm breaking, and you can't save me
that's why i say goodbye before you leave

Tell me this isn't love, this isn't right
you don't need me in your life
trying to save you the trouble this time
No it's Not what you think, it's not black and white
Get out while you're still alive
I'm trying to save you the trouble this time

coz I'm the mess you don't need
And we both know you're better off without me

Tell me this isn't love, this isn't right
you don't need me in your life
trying to save you the trouble this times
No it's Not what you think, it's not black and white
Get out while you're still alive
I'm trying to save you the trouble this time
trying to save you the trouble this time
trying to save you the trouble tonight
Track Name: Jaded
When all you said was let's wait a minute
Speed up the pace coz I can't deal with it
There I go reading between the lines
like we're running out of time

You tell me you love me, i hear you say you don't
You held my hand, I only feel you letting go, oh

Coz I'm Jaded, My heart's a little Jaded.
I hope that you can save it, I'm a little Jaded from you

Turn the key, you open up the front door
With groceries that you place down on the floor
But I'm sure your thinking how much would fit inside
Your suitcase as you're leaving us behind

You kiss my cheek, I try not to forget
You'll break my heart, you just haven't done it yet

Coz I'm Jaded, My heart's a little Jaded.
I hope that you can save it, I'm a little Jaded from you

Broken promises laid upon the floor
My heart Is bruised I come back for more
Can't blame you for what you haven't done
When I feel safe and warm - that's when I will run

Coz I'm Jaded, My heart's a little Jaded.
I hope that you can save it,
That's what you made it, coz I'm Jaded, from you
Track Name: Walk On
Seems however tall I feel,
I am so small, my dreams are always out of reach
I breathe, the pressure burdens me
And all I must do, so I start with my two feet

And take a step, followed by the next
Into tomorrow, I’ll take it slow

For every one, there’s a thousand gone before
All of the laughter and the tears make it worth it all
If there’s a stop in the road, my soul will go beyond
My will is strong, and I’ll walk on, I’ll walk on

When the dawn begins to fade
Suddenly blind and I’m praying for the light
Again, it’s raining down on me
My faith is shaken and I don’t know what is right

I turn to see just where I have been
How far I’ve come, then I see the sun

For every one, there’s a thousand gone before
All of the laughter and the tears make it worth it all
If there’s a stop in the road, my soul will go beyond
My will is strong, and I’ll walk on, I’ll walk on

I take a step, followed by the next
Into tomorrow, I’ll take it slow

For every one, there’s a thousand gone before
All of the laughter and the tears make it worth it all
If there’s a stop in the road, my soul will go beyond
My will is strong, and I’ll walk on, I’ll walk on
Track Name: Candlelight
You've been to hell and returned
I know you didn't send a postcard coz it would have got burned
And it's a winding road through the rain when you have no cover

Undoubtedly, your back's against the wall
When the world seems frozen when you're bruised and broken
Like a single grain of sand in the hourglass stalls
Let me try to turn it back around so you don't fall

It's a long way through the night
Let me be your Candlelight, show you everything will be alright
It's so dark outside
I will be your Candlelight and everything will be alright

You've been to Rome and to the Andes
Travelled all across the world but you never found what makes you happy
Well, I could show you the way to see what's in-between, if you come with me

Undeniably don't it make you feel small
When the world seems frozen when your bruised and broken
Like a single grain of sand in the hourglass stalls
Let me try to turn it back around so you don't fall

It's a long way through the night
Let me be your Candlelight, show you everything will be alright
It's so dark outside
I will be your Candlelight and everything will be alright

Looking back down the road you came
A million miles somehow you lost the way
Your heavy heart can now be safe
You don't have to be afraid, anyway coz

It's a long way through the night
Let me be your Candlelight, show you everything will be alright
It's so dark outside
I will be your Candlelight and everything will be alright
