lyrics

You claim that you’re drowning in apathy
But I see you come alive, time after time

You claim this is a rope wearing thin
You gasp for air, take a step back to safety
I can tell you’ve been thinking
And I try to let it sink in

Did you, did you embody all of their lies, all of their lies?
Did you, did you embody all of their lies, all of their lies?
Well your poison is my remedy
And my poison is your remedy

And you tell me that I am lucky, lucky to be spending time with you
At least today you have the courage to admit that you are precious
But I don’t think (no, I really don’t think) that you are doing me a favour
I think today I have the courage to admit that you are lucky, lucky to spend time with me
And we took turns to put each other on a pedestal
I was a star in your eyes and you, yes you, you became my sunrise

And I know it took us by surprise
A year in the making, but suddenly shaken up inside
Yes, I know it took us by surprise
A year in the making, but suddenly shaken up inside

Did you, did you embody all of their lies, all of their lies?
Did you, did you embody all of their lies, all of their lies?
Well your poison is my remedy
And my poison is your remedy

And I know you said that you were your first point of reference
“Don’t let it all unravel, choose your battle, maybe that’ll make it easier”
Make it easier for who?
Did you start believing the negative assumptions some people make of you
Day in, day out, generations of doubt
When a tear falls gently down your face, a rolling ball of memories
Your dream is stronger, stronger than your pain

You claim that you’re drowning in apathy
But I see you come alive, yes, I see you come alive
Time after time

about

STAV. Melbourne, Australia

Not as quiet as you would think, mesmerising bilingual folk-pop artist STAV. blurs the lines between singing and spoken word in a mostly Australian accent and unschooled Hebrew. Introspective and playful, her persuasive melodies explore migration, her identity across generations and womanhood. FAA 'Young Artist of the Year' 2018 ... more
