  • I'm not in your house,
    But I'm not in your head,
    You're not even listening.
    It's so hard to know
    When you're not scared.

    Please don't help me,
    Please don't hate me.

    Stop putting me down,
    'Cause I won't ever understand.
    I see it in your eyes
    I see it in your mind.

    I'm trying not to speak,
    'Cause you can't hear my voice,
    Nothing seems familiar here.
    On the other side
    Of this town.

    Please don't help me,
    Please don't help me.

    Stop putting me down,
    'Cause I won't ever understand.
    I see it in your eyes,
    I see it in your mind.

    Hold on
    Hold on

    If I see this all again,
    I'll try to take my time,
    I wonder how fast you could try.

    All this time I thought you knew
    All this time I thought you knew Writer/s: ALEXANDER WESTAWAY, CHARLES SIMPSON, DANIEL HAIGH, OMAR ABIDI

  • Sabine from Lelystad, NetherlandsThe song was actually called 'Out Swimming In The Flood', but since it was released shortly before (or after?) a tsunami hit Asia in 2005, they changed the name because they thought it would be disrespectful towards the people who died and the survivors :]
