Promote This Media


    

Description


This is the second part of a three part video, a twenty minute set performed live at the Blanchetown Country Music Campout in aid of the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Many thanks to the backing band, Heartland who did an amazing job of backing, and had never heard any of the original songs before.

In this video, you will hear two original songs written by Mell solely.

Lyrics to Misunderstood:
Coda:
Don't wanna be what I see,
what I need, what they want and should be.
Don't wanna see who I am, when they want- when they wanna be me.
Don't wanna be just a girl dancin' here just to thrill-
all the boys and the girls who wanna be.
Don't want to be showin' off my body to no-body but my man.

Verse 1:
They see me as just a little girl, never knowin'- I can be a woman too.
They think that innocence is a curse, but I know better, 'cause that's what I am.

Bridge:
They don't know me for who I am.
Accepting's hard, so I understand.

Chorus:
I'm just a little misunderstood, finding my way into this world.
No need to try to run away 'cause you're only misunderstood.
Yeah, oh, you're only misunderstood.

V2:
People think that being young means, you have to show off.
Well not me thanks, that is where I stop.

Coda

Chorus x2


Lyrics to Shallow:
V1
You've had your time, i've set you free, don't ever try to bother me.
I'm gonna sleep really well, knowing you can never tell.
The truth is that I'm doing fine, and you can now fall from my mind-
I feel a tension is now gone, and you can see I'm moving on.

BRIDGE
I'll spread my wings, step into the sun- cause now my freedom has been won.

CHORUS
Goodluck, say goodbye, just let it go- and start to fly.
You will never ever know, Friends like me to call your own.
But one day you will grow my friend, and see the truth about the end.
So until then i'll take a step onto this path where we can mend.

V2
The web youve spun showed me the truth, and now I can see right through.
The people you can call your blood, hide deceit inside of them.
It's sad to see that one so young, will never grow to be someone.
You could be great, it's true you know, but it's not ok to be shallow.

CHORUS

Goodluck, say goodbye, just let it go- and start to fly.




You will never ever know, Friends like me to call your own.
But one day you will grow my friend, and see the truth about the end.
So until then i'll take a step onto this path where we can mend.

CODA
I told the truth, it's something I said I always would.
And truth can hurt, and it can be turned- into something dark, something that burns.
But I still feel you needed to know what was inside of you.
I had to let you go my friend, and find a path that breaks the trend.

Chorus x 2
