As if looking like a model isn’t enough, Australian singer/songwriter Sarah Blasco is also blessed with a wonderful voice and very impressive songwriting skills. Damn it! Some people have it all! Always On This Line is the way pop sounds like when it’s not desperate to grab your attention. True Intentions has great lyrics, a unique melody and showcases Sarah’s sombre side. Frankly, any side Sarah decides to show is fine as long as it doesn’t involve dancing. Watch the music video. You’re bound to agree. Here we go:

Always On This Line

Music Video

Lyrics

As the day turns to night
Under these subruban skies
Think of all willing lies, of cutting ties,
The emptiness

At first light, first sight,
The world seems like a miracle,
But try to hold it in your hands
And watch it get away,
Oh the ugliness of fate

When you’re always on this line,
When you’re always on this line,
You could’ve crossed a million times,
But you’re always on this line,
Oh, put your hands up,
Claim your crime,
‘Cause you never had the time,
You still get to work just fine,
When you’re always on this line

But it’s alright, it’s okay,
When there’s excuses in your way,
You can try, just make it up,
Settle down but don’t look up,

At first bite, first lie,
The world seems like it serves you well,
But try to catch it in your hands,
Treating it like a slave of the emptiness you crave

When you’re always on this line,
When you’re always on this line,
You could’ve crossed a million times,
But you’re always on this line,
Oh, put your hands up,
Claim your crime,
‘Cause you never had the time,
You still get to work just fine,
When you’re always on this line

Oh, it might be unkind of me to make you feel bad,
It might be a shame of me to treat you like that,
When there’s everything you’ve worked for in your life,
On this line

When you’re always on this line,
When you’re always on this line,
You could’ve crossed a million times,
But you’re always on this line,
Oh, put your hands up,
Claim your crime,
‘Cause you never had the time,
You still get to work just fine,
When you’re always on this line

Lyrics

Between love we make
Divide, navigate
Confusion translates
What you can’t explain
Though lines are not the face
Are your eyes not ashamed?

Of past now to drink
If tired and wandering
In circles that spin
Down spiralled towards sin
It’s all very clear
This time I will travel all alone

Don’t let me in, I’ll shut you out
Take control of the wheel and now
It’ll lead me on to a sense of my true intentions
My true intentions

No time to forsake
To turn and run away
Cos these answers you bring
Are symptoms of things
You try to forget
But your mind is betrayed

Don’t let me in, I’ll shut you out
Take control of the wheel and now
It’ll lead me on to a sense of my true intentions
My true intentions

Oh, have a listen
Oh, do you hear them?
Oh, have a listen, have a listen, to my, oh to my true intentions, oh to my true intentions
