  • Oh, watching me
    Hanging by a string this time
    Don't, easily
    The climax of the perfect lie
    Oh, watching me
    Hanging by a string this time
    Don't, easily
    Smile worth a hundred lies

    If there's lessons to be learned
    I'd rather get my jamming words in first, so
    Tell you something that I've found
    That the world's a better place
    When it's upside down, boy

    If there's lessons to be learned
    I'd rather get my jamming words in first, so
    When your playing with desire
    Don't come running to my place
    When it burns like fire, boy

    Sweet about me
    Nothing sweet about me, yeah

    Sweet about me
    Nothing sweet about me, yeah

    Sweet about me
    Nothing sweet about me, yeah

    Sweet about me
    Nothing sweet about me, yeah

    Blue, blue, blue waves, they crash
    As time goes by, so hard to catch
    Too, too smooth, ain't all that
    Why don't you ride my side of the tracks

    If there's lessons to be learned
    I'd rather get my jamming words in first, so
    Tell you something that I've found
    That the world's a better place
    When it's upside down, boy

    If there's lessons to be learned
    I'd rather get my jamming words in first, so
    When your playing with desire
    Don't come running to my place
    When it burns like fire, boy

    Sweet about me
    Nothing sweet about me, yeah

    Sweet about me
    Nothing sweet about me, yeah

    Sweet about me
    Nothing sweet about me, yeah

    Sweet about me
    Nothing sweet about me, yeah

    Sweet about me
    Nothing sweet about me, yeah

    Sweet about me
    Nothing sweet about me, yeah Writer/s: BRIAN HIGGINS, GABRIELLA CILMI, MIRANDA COOPER, NICK COLER, TIM POWELL, TIMOTHY LARCOMBE

  • Mark from Auckland, New ZealandGuys... you've spelt her name wrong! It's CILMI(pron: Chill me)! Born Ocotber 10 1991 in Dandenong Melbourne Australia. An Italian Catholic family, she went to Scared Heart Girls College. Now living in London, and studies by correspondence. She's only 16 at the time of this post. About to play support for the Sugarbabes UK Tour and then for James Blunt on his Australasian Tour. I did a radio interview with her this week, and she is more like a 30 year old in wisdom. Also there's a possible blood line to Frank Sinatra... but that's yet to be confirmed. Apparently her Great Great Great Grandmother's surname was Sinatra.
