about

Living Your Heart Out....this was a song that I think had been subconsciously building up in me for a while. Growing up, you'll hear everybody's ideas on the 'proper' or 'normal' way to go about living your life, and I think the idea came to me a few months into my first year of university. It was kind of like I asked myself "Rach...are you living your heart out?" in the least cheesiest of ways. This question will mean something different to everybody, but for me it's a lifelong journey I'm still trying to figure out.

lyrics

Paper airplanes and cold hard facts
Superheroes and time that you can’t get back
Just a kid and a daydream
Just a girl with a heart that she can’t combat

A kiss goodbye, a lullaby

When you’re falling asleep what do you dream about?
Are you living your heart out?
Echoing through the streets, I start to scream and shout
Are you living your heart out?
Well I am coming around

Fear and loathing in Laundromats
City sleepers and handfuls of red train tracks
Just a boy who is screaming
Just a chance to become all the things we lack

A father’s cry, a lullaby

When you’re falling asleep what do you dream about?
Are you living your heart out?
Echoing through the streets, I start to scream and shout
Are you living your heart out?
Well I am coming around

Through the fields of life and love, silence building to erupt
I’m trembling, surrendering to that feeling
A kiss goodbye, a lullaby…

When you’re falling asleep what do you dream about?
Are you living your heart out?
Gravity takes a leap; your lights are brighter now
Are you living your heart out?
Well I am coming around
