  • In a world of minimal affection
    Can you give yourself in a word
    To a girl with a washed-out complexion
    She's a mutual friend of ours
    Anyone, anyone, anyone, anyone, anyone?
    Is there anyone there?
    You forget how to make a connection
    And you've wanted one for so long

    Moving on
    We don't have a lot in common
    When the world
    If you don't even know my name

    What is life if not for affection?
    Felt invisible, took too hard
    [?] and drove to distraction
    Is if everyone went away
    Anyone, anyone, anyone, anyone, anyone?
    Is there anyone there?
    Fall back and into the quiet
    Where I've wanted you for so long

    Moving on
    We don't have a lot in common
    When the world
    If you don't even know my name

    How am I supposed to hear you calling
    If I can't hear a word you say?
    How am I supposed to hear you calling
    If I can't hear a word you say?

    Moving on
    We don't have a lot in common
    When the world
    If you don't even know my name

    How am I supposed to hear you calling
    If I can't hear a word you say?
    How am I supposed to hear you calling
    If I can't hear a word you say? Writer/s: Arni Hjorvar Arnason, Cole Marsden Grief Neill, Freddie Clayton Cowan, Justin James Hayward-Young, Peter Gareth Christopher Robertson
