"Showstopper" as written by and Blasko/cranny....
Find me, oh find me
When this birthright was blackened,
When lightning struck
And the storm clouds came over,
The cracks were appearing
Before things turned
In a moment, I'd forgotten,

I feel the trial, it's mine,
I burn in this ire,
All this pride, bid goodbye,
Only matchwood,

Still so unsure why this path was chosen,
It's harder and further
Than first calculations,
When you know it's not over yet,

I feel the trial, it's mine,
I burn in this ire,
All this pride, bid goodbye,
Only matchwood,

Oh, it's a trial and a fight,
Hear me cry: "it's yours and it's mine!"
"Oh this fight!"
"It's yours,"
"It's mine"
"Yours and mine, yours and mine!"

Find me,
Oh find this birthright,
It's cursed,
Oh the lightning struck
And the storm hit its target.

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented on this song.
    It is amazing! Definitely up there with my favourite SB songs. The songwriting is raw and beautiful and heart-breaking.

    I am not really sure on the meaning. Maybe she is being/has been lead down a path by somebody/something, a path that she didn't foresee or choose. She feels that her fate is being/has been chosen for her, that she has no control over it, but people are still judging her.
    And no matter how much she fights it, and tries to take control, nothing changes: 'the storm hits its target'.

    General CommentI feel another biblical connection...Esau and Jacob, anyone? Of course, it's just Blasko's way of connecting her own situations, most likely, to the bible, so I'm not saying THIS IS ABOUT ONLY THE BIBLE-- I'm not that crazy, so those who have no idea of which I'm speaking don't feel too lost...but I agree meg, incredible songwriting. You can tell she really feels it when she sings it.
