'Everything' by "the matinee idles" Nominated for an IMTV award.
Video is here:


Think I’ll move over
Move to the colder part of your bed
It’s hard to concentrate
When there’s a lot of things going on in your head
I’ll stand by you
But you have to listen to the things that I’ve said

Hold on there’s no-one you need to impress
Could’ve sealed the deal-but gave it a miss
There’s no-one you need to impress

You have
Everything you need here
Everything you need here
Everything you need

The whole world welcomes you
With arms open wide
You know you’ll always have the doubters girl
Just brush them aside
Hypocritical parasites
Just feeding off your fear
There’s a runway too your freedom
You know I’ll be here
You see everyone is humming
But no one wants to sing
You gotta hang out your feelings for everyone to see
If there’s a crack in your armour
Who cares about that
So take your heart out of your head girl
You know I’ve got your back

You’ve got
Everything here
