Single/radio edit of 'Of This You Made Yourself' from 'Untamed & Beloved'


It's all imagination when it's not before your eyes.
The fairest is the new kid who observes before decides,
Still you're clinging to the values of a vain and fruitless pride,
On the inside.

Watching as he loses his way.
He can't even hear as I call his name.
Turn your head round,
Don't you notice me.
You are of this.
Of this you made yourself.

You're acting like the weather,
Like snow on top of spring.
You promised all your colours, and then covered everything.
Will you recognise your children when you've had a heart to heart,
With yourself.

Watch me if I'm losing my way.
Violently thunder my name.
And turn my head round.
Make me notice, that I am of this.
Of this I made myself.

Turn your head round.
Don't you notice,
That you are of this.
Of this you made yourself.
