VERSE All the fragile ones they crash into the sea Abel's busy saving them until their plummet underneath So much to surrender so there's so much to give Can't let go, never let go just watch those waves wash in CHORUS Abel's underneath...Oooo Abel's swimming seas...ahh ahh Abel's lost his keys now he floats at the bottom At the bottom of the sea VERSE And the ones that are kept from swimming the water Carefully caught in the net of his good deed Never saw him go down that gruesome day That day he faded away, that day he was never seen... CHORUS Abel's underneath...Oooo Abel's swimming seas...ahh ahh Abel's lost his keys now he floats at the bottom At the bottom of the sea Oh...Abel's underneath...Oooo Abel's swimming seas...ahh ahh Abel's lost his keys now he floats at the bottom At the bottom of the sea

VERSE If your heart needs placement There's no where else but now Live into each moment Don't you look down Make a memory Settle in a dream Let the dream be unleashed and realize your free You can't be brought down When love is all around Love is our playground It's reality, It's you and me CHORUS Just be Just be free Just be Just be free Just be VERSE Come into this moment Don't you be afraid nothing that awakes you Will take your heart away Maybe you just need To do yourself a favour Don't play make believe When you look into you neighbour BRIDGE Everything is real Everything is right Everything is real Everything is right You gotta be free You gotta be free Just be You can't be brought down When love is all around Saying love is our playground It's reality, it's you and me o if your heart needs placement Theres no where else but now Live into each moment Don't you look down Make a memory Settle in dream Let the dream be Unleashed and realize your free CHORUS Just be Just be free Just be Just be free Just be OUTRO And everything is real And everything’s alright Everything is real Everything is alright Alright

VERSE I feel so homesick I haven't slept for days I feel so homesick I haven't slept for days Days and days and days... You know what you're searching for You know what you're searching for And where you're going Is where you're going Is where you're going CHORUS And where you're leaving Is where you're leaving And where you're leaving Is where you're leaving VERSE Thought I was hiding out maybe Turned out I was wearing your disguise Taking some time out baby But you used illusions tricked my mind Amused yourself pretended to save me All looks the same in your eyes Thought you were well who could blame me? Tempted by a devil with angel eyes Angel eyes Angel eyes Angel eyes Angel eyes Angel eyes Angel eyes Angel eyes Angel eyes CHORUS And where you're leaving Is where you're leaving Is where you're leaving Is where you're leaving And where you're going Is where you're going Is where your going Is where your going BRIDGE Angel eyes Angel eyes...Ha ha ha ha ha Angel eyes...Ha ha ha ha ha Angel eyes...Ha ha ha ha ha Angel eyes VERSE I feel so homesick I haven't slept for days I feel so homesick I haven't slept for days Days and days and days... You know what your searching for You know what your searching for And where your going Is where your going And where your going Is where your going

VERSE Baby you know you're gonna go so far They seem pretty impressed by you Got yourself together, got those cheekbones that make them want you And I have to admit I wanted you too How do you always know what to say How do you always know what to wear I want run my fingers through your hair But you were always barely there weren't you? CHORUS I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star VERSE Now the grounds been pulled out from under your feet The future is a lullaby that's made you tired and weak The assets of a teenage king have dissolved And so have the little things, nobody's knocking with news to bring CHORUS I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star VERSE Now the grounds been pulled out from under your feet The future is a lullaby that's made you tired and weak The assets of a teenage king have dissolved And so have the little things, nobody's knocking with news to bring CHORUS I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star I said hey hey you look at you fall just like a star

Sometimes it feels like you hold the keys Two voices on a phone line Staring into the unknown Corsets and bridal gowns Make it swift, make it short, make it hold until the end Make it swift, make it short, make it hold until the end Can I pencil you? Why the fuck do I pencil anything in? Been chasing time like it never existed, like it was just some lost flame Make it swift, make it short, make it hold until the end Make it swift, make it short, make it hold until the end Oh, you make it look so easy yeah yeah Say you were looking for fresh fruit Oh, you make it look so easy yeah yeah Say you were looking for fresh fruit Make it swift, make it short, make it hold until the end Make it swift, make it short, make it hold until the end You knew but you didn't want to tell Didn't have the heart to break it Casting your very own spell Didn't want to fake to make it Maybe it's just part of your DNA You've got the mind to take it in Running against the crowd She didn't need any saving Make it swift, make it short, make it hold until the end Make it swift, make it short, make it hold until the end Hold until the end Hold until the end Hold until the end Hold until the end

VERSE I lost my soul, I gave it to the big man I lost my soul, I gave it to the big man With the wealthy harlot, with the big wallet I lost my soul, I gave it to the big man (the big man) Midst the forest she cut up all of her hair Sacrificed herself like she's a mother Ooooo....Ahhh.... CHORUS The indifference of your school of fish They follow you and dart back again- they The indifference of your school of fish They follow you and dart back again VERSE She's so strong, so full of life And all I want is a little slice To figure out what's not figured out Close my eyes, look into the tide Lost my soul but what of it? Oooo...Ahhh... CHORUS The indifference of your school of fish They follow you and dart back again- they The indifference of your school of fish They follow you and dart back again The indifference of your school of fish They follow you and dart back again- they The indifference of your school of fish They follow you and dart back again Lost my soul where did it go? Lost my soul where did it go? Lost my soul where did it go? Lost my soul where did it go? Lost my soul where did it go? Lost my soul where did it go?

VERSE I wanted to dream about it A million miles away The fast cadillac was driving As the sun faded into day But that's just on the television screen That's just part of the movie When it's bright lets take flight Because when it's gray it rains and rains CHORUS Don't be afraid (be afraid) Don't be afraid (be afraid) Don't be afraid VERSE I wanted to speak about it I felt it rattle in my bones I heard it on the radio I heard it in the flesh and blood BRIDGE When it's all up to you Don't hide away, don't get confused You know what you can do You know, just sing that song CHORUS Don't be afraid (be afraid) Don't be afraid (be afraid) Don't be afraid OUTRO It's like the miles are just moving It's like the miles are just moving It's like the miles are just moving ahead of me Moving ahead of me as I take a step It's the miles are just spinning in front of me Spinning in front of me like a wheel in roulette Oh, moving miles are... Moving miles are... Moving miles are moving ahead of me

VERSE Gazing out past your dedicated sun A quick fire to smoke and to burn again And I know that I will see those eyes Optimistic and naive I remember the time Well, I was leaning over the railing In the ferry parking lot Looking out into the islands and the water Life was scattered and full of speed CHORUS Now you can't look back Once you've pulled that thread Now you can't remove the need to feel, to taste Now you can't look back Once you've pulled that thread Now you can't remove the need to feel, to taste VERSE Nobody wants, nobody wants that familiar knock upon her door Salesman smiling with a knowing, knowing smile So I shut out the merchants call I shut out the ones with their hands on all the dots Didn't want to be told what's up What's up? Can I help you with your things? CHORUS Now you can't look back Once you've pulled that thread No you can't remove the need to feel, to taste Now you can't look back Once you've pulled that thread No you can't remove the need to feel, to taste

VERSE We walked through cemeteries Wiped dust off graves When I die I want someones name next to me You say you want to be cremated Someone was looking for me Someone was going out Drinks and passes- the two out in spotlight They kiss on Main Street Are they fickle lovers? Or do they land scattered care free? CHORUS Give me my love my illegit lover Where can he be? VERSE We talked in car lots under gilded canopies We shared a kiss You put your hand on my knee Someone was trailing behind Someone was playing with she People were looking closely You were dancing with me The heart wants to... The heart wants to... The heart wants to... Heart beats when it's alive again Heart beats when it's warm my friend Heart beats when it's alive again Heart beats when it's warm my friend CHORUS My love give it to me Give it to me Give it to me My love My love Give it to me Give it to me Give me my love my illegit lover Where can he be?

Snow falling all around you Hill of white trapped behind If you could touch this face You'd know you let something go Snow falling, piece of star Left twinkling in your eyes But you must have been drinking Cause you don't believe in feeling Even if it feels right Heart of stone You must have known It's really made of glass Someone stepped on your castle And your taking, your taking, your taking, your taking It out on me Your not so strong Your not so weak Why did you have to disappoint me Like so many others did? You don't believe in feeling Even if it feels right Cause snow doesn't happen Too many times around this time of year

VERSE Ooooo...La La La La Ooooo...La La La La Used to play in the street Riding bikes like cars Catching fish in the creek Pretending they were sharks Dip our feet in the sea Lay our heads on the beach Staring up at trees Wondering what we'll be CHORUS Want to go, want to go (want to go, I want to go) To the place that you are (the place that you are) Want to be, want to be (want to be, I want to be) Right back from the start VERSE We danced in the gym Held our hands in the park Under the moonlight we'd swim Pretending we were sharks Drying off by a tree Carved our names in a heart We're just trying to be Right back to the start CHORUS Want to go, want to go (want to go, I want to go) To the place that you are (the place that you are) Want to be, want to be (want to be, I want to be) Right back from the start BRIDGE Take me back to where we first began Take me back to when we were just friends Take me back to where we first began Take me back to the closest point to the end Oooo.... Oh no! VERSE You moved away (you moved away) Parents split that fall (parents split that fall) We started to change (we started to change) Never wrote or called (never wrote or called) I got a job (you got a job) A house and a car (a house and a car) Never moved too far Still swim with sharks Still swim with sharks Still swim with sharks Still swim with sharks

about

Heart Placement is the much anticipated upcoming second album from the genre-bending pop duo/band Sister Says, lead by siblings Gillian and Robert Thomson. The album is a departure from Sister Say's first album which is filled with lush orchestration and jazz infused arrangements. Heart Placement is pared down, soulful, and has an electric feel that at times ties in elements of folk, referencing early 70's production. Lyrically the songs are a tell all of heartbreak, loss, growth and light.
