  • I don't have to leave anymore
    What I have is right here
    Spend my nights and days before
    Searching the world for what's right here

    Underneath and unexplored
    Islands and cities I have looked
    Here I saw
    Something I couldn't over look

    I am yours now
    So now I don't ever have to leave
    I've been found out
    So now I'll never explore
    See what I've done
    That bridge is on fire
    Go back to where I've been
    I'm froze by desire
    No need to leave

    Where would I be
    If this were to go under
    It's a risk I'd take
    I'm froze by desire
    As if a choice I'd make?

    I am yours now
    So now I don't ever have to leave
    I've been found out
    So now I'll never explore
    I am yours now, I am yours now
    So now I don't ever have to leave
    I've been found out, I've been found out
    So now I'll never explore

    See what I've done Writer/s: Baria Qureshi, James Thomas Smith, Oliver David Sim, Romy Anna Madley Croft
