Donna: "Inspired by doing a gig in Newport - the first before my family and friends. The song's about putting on a brave face when you're really, really nervous. It's about conquering fear."

keeping a brave face
in circumstances
is impossible
cannot describe
so many decisions
it's impossible
to know which is
the proper order
the best position
to be in
take advantage
or so it seems
the way it goes

it's tragic
laid down on your side
too easy
you know that you know
you're soaking wet
you talk too much
it's not necessary

before the ice melts
i just want to say
this racket's yours
don't ask for more
'cause somewhere along the line
i've forgotten already

sandman comes
two to one
in the dark
dark reflections
in my head
in my bed

sandman goes
two in tow
wet and dumb
three's the number
coming down
coming round again
