"Momentum" as written by and Vienna Teng....
Why am I walking barefoot
Upon this road with no one around
I close my eyes to this decision
The night's like coffee to my tongue

Like waking up without a sound
I map the words out
Maybe you will say them
Would you help me rise up

Touch my face and watch me try to breathe again
Would you let me do this
Burn down the final wall

Overcome me baby
Overcome me baby
Overcome me baby
Overcome me yeah
All I'm asking is to be alive for once

Always I am mistaken
I look for love, I find a stone
Of all the seasons winter befriends me
I come to you in friendship

And hold my breath against the snow
What are you thinking as I gaze into you
Forgive me the confusion
Forgive me as I realize my thoughts betrayed

You are the answer
Cry and smile the same

    General CommentI could be completely and utterly wrong about this idea but the feeling i am getting from this is that she is alone in love and she has kinda figured out what the guy needs to do to get into her life, "I map the words and maybe you will say them". She needs someone to "overcome her"...
    But again, i could be wrong...

    General CommentI'd like to believe that this song is about two people who are on the brink of getting into a relationship, and that she's asking him to affirm everything between them and get the ball rolling. Or something less cliché.

    General CommentIn the words of Vienna, this is simply a song of seduction.

    It, like a majority of her songs, is incredible and moving.
