"Out and In" as written by and Kate Miller-heidke....
You loomed up slowly on the horizon,
Blocking the sun like an ocean liner,
When I discover I'm living in your shadow,
It always comes as a surprise.

Hm, but, way up here,
I'm spinning round the lamp-post in the rain
Way up here, I remember the rain,
And I'm whispering directly in your ear.

You are perfecting circular breathing,
I can't always tell when you're inhaling.
So you make it look like you're always giving,
But you're always storing little bits away,
You're a bit away.

Hm, but, way up here,
I'm dancing round the lamp-post in the rain
Way up here, it's pouring down,
And I'm singing right in your ear.

What does it take to stop getting carried away,
By the force of my love?
You take my breath away,
I'm starting to suffocate.
Break the outline of my body, break
Where I end and you begin, break
You came too far in,
And out and in, and doubt and din again.

Every time we breathe out,
We let out a little bit of ourselves,
It'd be alright if we could exchange.
But you don't want to,
And I don't blame you,
But I'm gonna wanna learn to play the didgeridoo, too.

Hm, because, way up here,
I'm spinning round that lamp-post in the rain
Way up here, raining on down,
And I'm screaming, I'm shouting,
Right in your ear.

And out and in,
And doubt and din
And doubt and din

Out and in
Out and in
Out and in
And out.

    General CommentI can't believe some of her other songs have more comments than this one... sigh... I love it. tis nice to sing along to too!

    Very pretty, but sounds a bit like she's getting shadowed, left behind by the character he is, whilst she is madly in love with him. and so, she will stand, paused and keep breathing and screaming into his ear her feelings to no success...
    Just my thoughts though
