Sia

Australian singer/songwriter Sia’s music is one of those rare cases where intelligent pop manages to reach wide audiences and show them how beautiful original and artistic melodies can be (actual art, not the bullshit kind Lady Gaga tries to market as one). Check her out:

Soon We’ll Be Found

Come along it is the break of day
Surely now, you’ll have some things to say
It’s not the time for telling tales on me

So come along, it wont be long
‘Til we return happy
Shut your eyes, there are no lies
In this world we call sleep
Let’s desert this day of hurt
Tomorrow we’ll be free

Let’s not fight I’m tired can’t we just sleep tonight
Turn away it’s just there’s nothing left here to say
Turn around I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found

Well it’s been rough but we’ll be just fine
Work it out yeah we’ll survive
You mustn’t let a few bad times dictate

So come along, it wont be long
‘Til we return happy
Shut your eyes, there are no lies
In this world we call sleep
Let’s desert this day of hurt
Tomorrow we’ll be free

Let’s not fight I’m tired can’t we just sleep tonight
Turn away it’s just there’s nothing left here to say
Turn around I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found

Lyrics

I’m in here, can anybody see me?
Can anybody help?

I’m in here, a prisoner of history,
Can anybody help?

Can’t you hear my call?
Are you coming to get me now?
I’ve been waiting for,
You to come rescue me,
I need you to hold,
All of the sadness I can not,
Living inside of me.

I’m in here, I’m trying to tell you something,
Can anybody help?

I’m in here, I’m calling out but you can’t hear,
Can anybody help?

Can’t you hear my call?
Are you coming to get me now?
I’ve been waiting for,
You to come rescue me,
I need you to hold,
All of the sadness I can not,
Living inside of me.

I’m crying out, I’m breaking down,
I am fearing it all,
Stuck inside these walls,
Tell me there is hope for me
Is anybody out there listening?

Can’t you hear my call?
Are you coming to get me now?
I’ve been waiting for,
You to come rescue me,
I need you to hold,
All of the sadness I can not,
Living inside of me.

Can’t you hear my call?
Are you coming to get me now?
I’ve been waiting for,
You to come rescue me,
I need you to hold,
All of the sadness I can not,
Living inside of me.

I’m in here, can anybody see me?
Can anybody help?
