  • Any time we have a conversation
    It's never what you wanna hear
    It's funny how much words can hurt you
    Even after all these years
    I wanna make an observation
    'Bout how you tear your world apart
    And every time I try to tell you
    You blame it on your fickle heart

    How they're hurting you
    When they're not deserving you
    Are so, are so afraid of you
    It's time to have a conversation

    Give it up,
    I'm never gonna hold you up
    You've always been afraid of love
    It's time to have a conversation

    Waking up is never easy
    So why don't you come over here
    Tell me 'bout the dreams that haunt you
    Tell me 'bout your secret fears
    I wanna change your whole perseption
    If only I could make you see
    How it's all your own creation
    That's bringing you this misery

    How they're hurting you
    When they're not deserving you
    Are so, are so afraid of you
    It's time to have a conversation

    Give it up,
    I'm never gonna hold you up
    You've always been afraid of love
    It's time to have a conversation

    The words you hear in your head
    Were never said, were never said
    The heart you break, you mistake
    For me instead, for me instead

    How they're hurting you
    When they're not deserving you
    Are so, are so afraid of you
    It's time to have a conversation

    Give it up,
    I'm never gonna hold you up
    You've always been afraid of love
    It's time to have a conversation

    Hurting you
    When they're not deserving you
    Are so, are so afraid of you
    It's time to have a conversation

    Give it up,
    I'm never gonna hold you up
    You've always been afraid of love
    It's time to have a conversation Writer/s: AMANDA GHOST, DAVE MCCRACKEN, IAN DENCH, JOHN MCELHONE, KAREN OVERTON, SHARLEEN SPITERI
