"I Don't Do Surprises" as written by Robert Conley and Axle Whitehead....
I'm feeling blind like a salt in my eyes
There's something you need to know
I'm wasting time fall behind in my mind
'Cause I'm fighting and I'm losing war
Tidy little fold lines cracking inside my soul

You can't look me in the eye
I don't do surprises
I got nothing at all
If you catch me I fall

Signs, neon lights like a thief in the night
Who was woken with an open door
I'm serving time by myself for a crime
There's a reason I can't ignore
Holding everything that I was ever looking for

You can't look me in the eye
I don't do surprises
I got nothing at all
If you catch me I fall

You can't look me in the eye
I don't do surprises
I got nothing at all
If you catch me I fall

Look inside me, seems that I've been
Don't forget to pay your bill now
(Dudes is new, who's forming)
Call my friends and tell them there's a party
The sun is coming up, my heart is falling

Out and I am blinded, no one has the ace of spades
But if you play the game you'll find it
I'm running and touching, sinking, thinking, hoping for another
We need to drink and vibe and try not to hold back each other

You can't look me in the eye
I don't do surprises
I got nothing at all
If you catch me I fall

    General CommentAnyone know what he says at the end, in a whisper? is it "do you trust me" or "don't trust me" I can't figure it out XD

    But I adore this song. When I first heard it I truly thought it was Coldplay, particularly in the chorus!!

    General Commenti love this song, i cant believe more people havent commented it!

    i think its basically about that time in a relationship where youre both aware of the fact its not really working out and youre getting to the point where you realise its time to let go coz you have nothing left to offer.

    its nice to see that not all people that participate in aus idol end up releasing crappy pop songs with no underlying meaning other than the fact their words rhyme :]

    General CommentWell no ones commented on it because its was only released a couple of days ago...

    When I first heard it, I thought it was Coldplay. Never thought much of him on video hits but he can sing that's for sure!

    Yeah I think its along the lines of showing it all and not being able to give her what they want and vice versa. Not getting each other - were only human.

    General CommentI thought it was Coldplay too. I think it's the way his voice goes when he says, "You cant look me in the eye".
