Alice Merton Hit The Ground Running

It’s a one way street, with an open end

And you never know, what lies ahead

But I always knew, that this was it

The signs were lit, oh I always knew

I’m gonna hit the ground running, hit the ground running

Only way that for the marching drums, I’ll be ready when the morning comes

I’m gonna hit the ground running, hit the ground running

Only way that for the marching drums, I’ll be ready when the morning comes

I’m an overdrive, go to play offense

And I won’t look back, there be no regrets

I keep my head up, even if I’m fed up

Cause I’m getting closer, oh I know, oh I know

I’m gonna hit the ground running, hit the ground running

Only way that for the marching drums, I’ll be ready when the morning comes

I’m gonna hit the ground running, hit the ground running

Only way that for the marching drums, I’ll be ready when the morning comes

I’ll be ready when the morning comes

Only way that for the marching drums, I’ll be ready when the morning comes

It’s a one way street, with an open end

And you never know, what lies ahead

But I always knew, that this was it

The signs were lit, oh I always knew

I’m gonna hit the ground running, hit the ground running

Only way that for the marching drums, I’ll be ready when the morning comes

I’m gonna hit the ground running, hit the ground running

Only way that for the marching drums, I’ll be ready when the morning comes

I’m gonna hit the ground running, hit the ground running

Only way that for the marching drums, I’ll be ready when the morning comes

I’m gonna hit the ground running, hit the ground running

Only way that for the marching drums, I’ll be ready when the morning comes

Alice Merton Jealousy

A bright blue sky is what I used to see but

My vision’s been torn out to all that’s been

And I know it’s not right and I’ve crossed the line but

Please understand that there was a time when

I let my heart go just to watch it burn

So I told myself it’s a lesson learned

But did I really learn?

Jealousy

I guess you finally taking over me

Jealousy

I’m suffering from your control

And you’re covering me like a basking coat

Getting harder to breathe under your control

Jealousy

Oh can’t you stay away from me?

The voices inside of my head

Keep me wondering where we at

Like a fire, it starts to spread

Covering up my skin and flesh and

I keep fighting

But the monster won’t let me win, oh

I keep fighting

But the monster won’t let me win, oh

Jealousy

I guess you finally taking over me

Jealousy

I’m suffering from your control

And you’re covering me like a basking coat

Getting harder to breathe under your control

Jealousy

Oh can’t you stay away from me?

I can’t breathe

I’ve lost my soul

Cause you’ve taken all

I thought I’d know

You’re covering me like a basking coat

Getting harder to breathe under your control

And you’re covering me like a basking coat

Getting harder to breathe under your control

Jealousy

I guess you finally taking over me

Jealousy

I’m suffering from your control

And you’re covering me like a basking coat

Getting harder to breathe under your control

Jealousy

Oh can’t you stay away from me?

Alice Merton Back To Berlin

I found a place where I instantly felt I was home

Haven’t felt like that since I was 6 years old

And you brought me ice cream and chips on a Sunday

We stayed in bed and watched films on a Monday

But little did I know, that I’d be the one to go

If I could I’d go back to Berlin and tell you I’m sorry for hurting the one thing we had from the start

Apologize to you for playing with your heart

If I could I’d go back to Berlin and I’d tell you I’m sorry for hurting the one thing we had from the start

Apologize to you for playing with your heart, for playing with your heart

And we walked the streets of Berlin in the nights

Haven’t talked about where we’d both be in ten years

Timed that I’d be up on the stage and you’d be creating a brand new age

And you made a mixtape of songs for my birthday

I listen to them constantly they’re on replay

And I keep on playing in my mind the way things went down in Berlin at the time

If I could I’d go back to Berlin and tell you I’m sorry for hurting the one thing we had from the start

Apologize to you for playing with your heart

If I could I’d go back to Berlin and I’d tell you I’m sorry for hurting the one thing we had from the start

Apologize to you for playing with your heart

Cause I never meant no harm

I never meant no harm

I never meant no harm

I never meant no harm, no harm

If I could I’d go back to Berlin and I’d tell you I’m sorry for hurting the one thing we had from the start

Apologize to you for playing with your heart, for playing with your heart

Alice Merton Lash Out

I can feel it on the back of my tongue

All of the words getting trapped in my lungs

Heavy like a stone, waiting for the river to run

I wanna lash out

I wanna let it out

‘Cause I can feel it on the back of my tongue

On the back of my tongue

Oh, hard to hold this fire inside me

All I know, sometimes it’s frightening

Hard to hold this fire inside me

Oh, oh oh, it’s not really like me to lash out

I gotta let it out

I wanna lash out

I wanna lash out

I got something to say, might start a riot

Rip that tape from my mouth, I won’t be quiet

‘Cause everything is nothing

‘Til you realise it’s something you want

I wanna lash out

I wanna let it out

‘Cause I can feel it on the back of my tongue

On the back of my tongue

Oh, hard to hold this fire inside me

All I know, sometimes it’s frightening

Hard to hold this fire inside me

Oh, oh oh, it’s not really like me to lash out

I gotta let it out

I wanna lash out

I gotta let it out

I can’t be the cork, come out of the bottle

I can’t be the cork, come out of the bottle

I can’t be the cork, come out of the bottle

I can’t be the cork, come out of the bottle

Lash out

I wanna let it out

‘Cause I can feel it on the back of my tongue

On the back of my tongue

Oh, hard to hold this fire inside me

All I know, sometimes it’s frightening

Hard to hold this fire inside me

Oh, oh oh, it’s not really like me to lash out

I wanna let it out

I wanna lash out

I wanna let it out

I gotta lash out

Alice Merton Lie To My Face

Honestly I thought your honesty meant something to you, in the end

All of your words were high there but I told myself I had not found love, once again

Tell me it’s all in my head, tell me I imagined all of it

That there’s no one else, so don’t worry, but were always wiser in the end

Go on and lie to my face

Tell me again how you love me while kissing another girl

Lie to my face

Say that you need me, without us there’s no other way

Tell me this won’t ever end

Tell me it over and over again

Lie to me, my friend

I saw you looking and her, you said you were friends but I know that you weren’t

What is a girl meant to do, when she discovers a man is a fool

I know she’s playing with you, but this ain’t a game, I thought this here was true

So go on and lie to my face

Tell me again how you love me while kissing another girl

Lie to my face

Say that you need me, without us there’s no other way

Tell me this won’t ever end

Tell me it over and over again

Tell me this won’t ever end

Tell me it over and over again

Lie to me

Oh, lie to me

Tell me this won’t ever end

Tell me it over and over and over again

Lie to my face

Say that you need me, without us there’s no other way

Alice Merton Why So Serious

When did we forget

All the crazy things that made us feel so part of it?

Our youth, so confident

We played our heartstrings

Not caring if it ends

Try to learn to let go of all those things that tie you down

Get rid of it, the voice inside that tells me that

I’m scared, yeah, scared as shit

But I wanna let go of it now

So someone tell me

Why so serious?

Why are we so serious?

Oh, why so serious?

When did we get like this?

I still remember we weren’t grown up like this

Oooh, oh

I don’t seem to get all the things that are happening

And I can’t make sense of everything that’s inside my head

But I keep on thinking, there’s gotta be something said

Oh, seems we’ve lost it

That spark inside that tells us it’s all nonsense

Stop being so cautious

With every mistake there comes a lesson learned

So someone tell me

Why so serious? (Serious)

Why are we so serious?

Oh, why so serious? (Serious)

When did we get like this?

I still remember we weren’t grown up like this

Oooh, oh

Why so serious? (Serious)

Why are we so serious?

Oh, why so serious? (Serious)

Can someone tell me

Did we forget about

Living with no regrets?

Oooh, oh

I wanna live in the now

I’m not gonna live in the past

Don’t wanna care about what-ifs

‘Cause what if those things don’t last?

And I wanna live with no regrets

I wanna live in the now

I’m not gonna live in the past

Don’t wanna care about what-ifs

‘Cause what if those things don’t last?

And I wanna live with no regrets

So someone tell me

Why so serious?

Why so serious? (Serious)

Why are we so serious?

Oh, why so serious? (Serious)

When did we get like this?

I still remember we weren’t grown up like this

Oooh, oh

Why so serious? (Serious)

Why are we so serious?

Oh, why so serious? (Serious)

Can someone tell me

Did we forget about

Living with no regrets?

Alice Merton No Roots

I like digging holes and

Hiding things inside them

When I grow all the hope

I won’t forget to find them

Cause, I’ve got memories and

Travel like gypsies in the night

I build a home and wait for

Someone to tear it down

Then pack it up in boxes

Head for the next time around

Cause, I’ve got memories and

Travel like gypsies in the night

And a thousand times I’ve seen this road

A thousand times

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I like standing still for

That’s just the wishful plan

Ask me where I come from

I’ll say a different land

But I’ve got memories and

Travel like gypsies in the night

I count the numbers

And play the guessing game

It’s just the place that changes

The rest is still the same

But I’ve got memories and

Travel like gypsies in the night

And a thousand times I’ve seen this road

A thousand times

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I like digging holes, hiding things inside them

When I grow old, I won’t forget to find them

I like digging holes, hiding things inside them

When I grow old, I won’t forget to find them

I’ve got no roots!

No roots!

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roots

But my home was never on the ground

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I’ve got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

No!
