When Kat and I won an international competition, we were invited to attend a songwriting workshop in London and had the privilege of working with producer, musician and songwriter, Jez Ashurst (Boyzone; Will Young; Yuki; Nathalie Bassingthwaite; Delta Goodrem/Brian McFadden).
 
We decided to write about the difficulties in relationships—more particularly about facing the challenge of ‘commitment’ from the perspective of the habitual saboteur.
 
Personally, I love the feeling of this song and believe many people will relate to it.
 
It was an incredible opportunity to work with you Jez - thank you! :)

Lyrics

V1
No one has ever stuck around before
I’m scared and I don’t want to let you in
Don’t try to save me; don’t call me baby
Don’t cross the line – let’s just be friends
PC
Why do you like me?
When I don’t even like me
CH
I’ll knock you down like a sledgehammer
Don’t you know you won’t rescue me?
Back away, back away, back away from me
Or I will blow your world
Blow your world to smithereens, oh-oh
To smithereens, oh-oh
V2
It’s not your job to make me happy
Don’t want to hear you say you understand
I want to hold you close but then the damage shows
I’ll only let you down in the end
PC
Oh you’ll be sorry
Sorry you ever met me
CH
I’ll knock you down like a sledgehammer
Don’t you know you won’t rescue me?
Back away, back away, back away from me
Or I will blow your world
Blow your world to smithereens, oh-oh
To smithereens, oh-oh
To smithereens, oh-oh
To smithereens
PC2
I don’t even like me
So tell me why you like me
Why the hell you like me?
Bridge
I’ll knock you down like a sledgehammer
I’ll knock you down like a sledgehammer
CH
I’ll knock you down like a sledgehammer
Don’t you know you won’t rescue me?
Back away, back away, back away from me
Or I will blow your world
Blow your world to smithereens, oh-oh
To smithereens, oh-oh
To smithereens, oh-oh
To smithereens, oh-oh
