"Shallow" as written by Joel Cadbury, Jamie Mcdonald and Brett Shaw....
Are you biting your tongue?
Or riding on your tights?
It's hard to discern if it's just a state of mind

All these second chances get
Another problem off your chest
Know not where you go or where you've been

Give in to love it's the one thing we have
Hold out your laugh, see the beauty within
I know the way that you won't make a fuss
Don't mean there's no pain

So they say
- ah-ooooooh
There must be more to life than this
- ah-ooooooh
No mistaking happiness
- ah-ooooooh
There is more to life than this
- ah-ooooooh
Through the days and nights we drift

Are you biding your time?
Or sinking in the shallows?
It's hard to describe, I might never know

Always heard you got shit for brains
Move your body in a thousand ways
I know it's in your nature to explore

Give in to love it's the one thing we have
Hold out your laugh, see the beauty within
I know the way but you won't be the first
Don't mean there's no pain

So they said
- ah-ooooooh
There must be more to life than this
- ah-ooooooh
That's what you say, no mistaking happiness
- ah-ooooooh
There is more to life than this
- ah-ooooooh
Through the days and nights we drift

In the distant fantasy
There will be no place for us

- ah-ooooooh
- ah-ooooooh
- ah-ooooooh

I heard you say
There must be more to life than this
- ah-ooooooh
That's what you say, no mistaking happiness
- ah-ooooooh
There is more to life than this
- ah-ooooooh
