"Talk In Tongues" as written by Phil Thornalley and Natalie Jane Imbruglia....
When you beat on that drum

Talk in that tongue

You're just scratching

On the surface

So tell me what it means

A whisper to a scream

Slowly fades away

Then you wake up

And tomorrow is today

And you're crying

Crying like a baby

Caught between the tides

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way



Do you know where I've been

Walls are caving in

It moves across a wire

There no need to talk

I crawl as you walk

Pushing me away

Then you wake up

And tomorrow is today

And you're crying

Crying like a baby

Caught between the tides

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way



Flowers in the bin

Close this hole I'm in

Everything was one

Nothing gets undone

You pay the bill

You lost your will

Just run away until

you wake up

And tomorrow is today

And you're crying

Crying like a baby

Caught between the tides

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way

(Did you lose your way)

You lost your way

    General Commenttell me about it!

    "Flowers in the bin
    Close this hole I’m in
    Everything was one
    Nothing gets undone"

    that whole part of the song just takes u into another world. what it all means exactly i'm not so sure, but the feeling i get from it says that it's purly perfect

    General CommentThis is my interpretation of that section. Hope it helps :)

    Flowers in the bin - something good (flowers) has gone or changed into something not wanted (rubbish in a bin)
    Close this hole I’m in - wanting to end this constant search to find happiness
    Everything was one - everything was once all together, life was perfect and now it's not
    Nothing gets undone - even though everything's broken up, she is still perfect inside

    I think that's what it means, would love other suggestions.
