"The Actress" as written by Emma Pollock, Paul Savage, Stewart Henderson and Alun Trevor Woodward....
This is not my house
But I know you both so well
Feels like it could be
But I can hear the bell
Days with his soulmate
Clothing for a course
Dines on a cloth plate
He wonders if she scores
Why did you buy this?
I know you dressed in red
Hardly surprising
The bed before you wed
If I forget what I saw
This time I'll find you
See the sign on a wall
Pray it won't kill you
Book a room, book it soon
Before I find you
Move aside as I slide
Move into those you know best


It looks so real
But I think it's just too tall
Let me try it
I'll stand here in the hall
And I know that ice can't burn
But I can see the flames
Melting the blocks in turn
Before I name some names
If I forget what I saw
This time I'll find you
See the sign on the wall
Pray it won't kill you
Book a room, book it soon
Before I find you
Move aside as I slide
Move into those you love best


Mind the style, I'm relaxing for a while
Taking stock of the job you have in hand
You will find what's behind all the actions of this kind
Be it all that they're happening in your head
There's this guy who speaks and I know he knows I'm weak
Find possessions by myself, I can't carry them I'm ...
All before I go there's some gratitude to show
For the car, hear me out, was a star


These lights they are hurting
And these games of names of old
Don't go confusing
The console with the board
Now I see a train station
The name I see is brain
Show me the exit now
So I can get away
If I forget what I saw
This time I'll find you
See the sign on a wall
Pray it won't kill you
Book a room, book it soon
Before I find you
Move aside as I slide
Move into those you know best.

    See the sign on a wall
    Pray it won't kill you
    Book a room, book it soon
    Before I find you
    Move aside as I slide
    Leave it to those you know best

    It looks so real
    But I think it's just too tall
    Let me try it
    I'll stand here in the hall
    And I know that ice can't burn

    Oh before I go there's some gratitude to show
    For the car, hear me out, was a star
