"Original" as written by Toni Halliday, Paul Terence Daley and Neil John Barnes....
Sonically we're in control
We're the diamond in your soul
Images come thick and fast
From the future, from the past

The film starts, the film ends,
Nothing is said in between.
Just sudden moments from someone else's story,
Will it ever be the same again?
Hours filled with conversation, no attention paid.
Too distracting convention, no need for friends.
Will it ever be the same again?
Will it ever be the same again?

You're original, with your own path
You're original, got your own way (x2)

Will it ever be the same again? (x2)
I need to hear that again
Because a dream starts, and a dream must end.

My mother told me, don't ever change
You're original, in your own way
My mother told me, don't ever change
You're original, got your own path

You're original (x2)
Will it ever be the same again? (x2)
I need to hear that again
Because a dream starts, and a dream must end.

You're original (x5)

    MemoryMe and my best friend listen to this song when we're getting stoned. We have come up with lots of things the song could be about.

    "Your original live your own path
    Your original got your own way"

    For us this was about people trying telling themselves that they're original and lead they're own way, kids trying to convince themselves that they ARE different and special.

    It was also about the way you feel when your stoned lol, this might have been because we were at the time (XD) :

    "Images come thick and fast
    From the future, from the past"

    When we think about things, recall dreams and discuss life.

    "Will it ever be the same again?
    I need to hear that again
    Because a dream starts, and a dream must end."

    This is about us discovering things about life through music, and trying to find a conclusion or answer to our questions.
