lyrics

Sometimes I feel I wanna cry
Let it out with a sigh
No matter how hard I try
It always stays stuck inside

My confidence went on holiday
And left a note for me to say
I'll be back when you learn to trust
Cos you create your own bad luck

And I'm the tin man from Oz
Looking for the heart he's lost
Wanting to take the risk
But moments are always missed
I’m frozen to the spot
The land that time forgot
Turned my back on life
Trapped in low fahrenheit
And I gotta do anything just to break the ice

Colder when I look away
Never let you have a say
I’ll pretend you’re unattainable
When I'm the one who's unavailable

Make of it what you will
The cure’s in a sugar pill
Things don't always click I know
Learn the lesson and let go

And I'm the tin man from Oz
Looking for the heart he's lost
Wanting to take the risk
Moments are always missed
I’m frozen to the spot
The land that time forgot
Turned my back on life
Trapped in low fahrenheit
And I gotta do anything just to break the ice

Found a coin in my shoe today
Must be a sign not to loose faith
No need to pay for each step I take
It’s no big deal to make mistakes

And I'm the tin man from Oz
Looking for the heart he's lost
Wanting to take the risk
Moments are always missed
I’m frozen to the spot
The land that time forgot
Turned my back on life
Trapped in low fahrenheit
And I gotta do anything just to break the ice
Yes do anything just to break the ice
