Liner Notes: 

Amanda says: I started writing the lyric with the phrase 'he says she says' which I knew I wanted to use as a title, and it grew from there.
I think I want it to be a lot grittier, so it may well get edited as 50/90 progresses and Steven and I work on it !

Thank you for reading and stay safe Smile

Lyrics: 

v1
How can I believe you
When the rumour mill is grinding
You said he was a friend
That you'd nothing to defend

pre ch ?
Are you hearing what they say ?
Can you see how I'm betrayed ?

ch
He says she says
All my broken dreams
Nothing's what it seems
Shattered plans have zero chance
Rumours make the devil dance
Words can turn to screams
Words can turn to screams

v2
Why not just be open
You can tell me what's been lacking
I understand your fear
That things aren't what they appear

pre ch ?
Are you hearing what they say ?
Can you see how I'm betrayed ?

ch
He says she says
All my broken dreams
Nothing's what it seems
Shattered plans have zero chance
Rumours make the devil dance
Words can turn to screams
Words can turn to screams

br
Maybe I should move on and not listen
To the never ending jealousy
Of some who seek to dampen
All that's good

pre ch ?
But are you hearing what they say ?
Can you see how I'm betrayed ?

ch
He says she says
All my broken dreams
Nothing's what it seems
Shattered plans have zero chance
Rumours make the devil dance
Words can turn to screams
Words can turn to screams

A typically powerful Amanda lyric! Tightly written with great rhythm. Gimme a shout when SWG has worked his magic with this one please. Smile

Great writing, as always. The chorus hits me right in the chest. Look forward to hearing the finished product.

Good, tight lyric. "Rumours make the devil dance" is a great image. It's a great title too and topic. The angst in the narrator is very real and apparent. Hope to hear it!
