    Help with some lyrics!

    Hi guys, I thinj this is the right place to post this.
    I adore Leona Lewis, she is my favourite singer in the whole wide world (after Carrie of course)
    So I heard this demo recorde for her (possibility for album 3) and i ADORE the song in a level I cannot explain wich is why Im praying that Ill make it. Anyhow, the point of this post is for you to please please help me figure out some of the lyrics I cant understand. (As English is the native language for most of you, I figures it may be easier for you), so , here it is.



    Sometimes I talk in the mornings when I think youre there
    I speak your name, I can smell your hair
    then reality wakes me
    sometimes I wait for you listening to every car
    that is passing by,with a racing heart, and its driving me crazy

    well I cannot break the spell that you laid on me ..............................
    its never gonna let me go

    cause Im awake when Im tryin´ to sleep
    and when I ......... I forget to breathe
    and when I ........ when I try to heal
    I speak I shatter
    because I lie when I tell the truth
    and no, Im never coming back to you
    ...................................
    I keep, keep better, I live I shatter, speak I shatter
    cry I shatter, I shatter

    I take it easy, Ive never been a fan of ........
    I chek it out, and I go for it, if Im sure ........ safely
    I take it easy so what the hell, whats happening?
    when I met a boy, and I let you in, my defenses get lazy


    I cannot break the spell that you laid on my heart and this house
    its never gonna be the same

    cause Im awake when Im tryin´ to sleep
    and when I ......... I forget to breathe
    and when I ........ when I try to heal
    I speak I shatter
    because I lie when I tell the truth
    and no, Im never coming back to you
    ...................................
    I keep, keep better, I live I shatter, speak I shatter
    cry I shatter, I shatter

    I place my bet so ......... broken hearted
    cause I am sure ..................... I never go down
    I raise my head and I know my skies will shatter
    so all of you can know
    all of you can know

    cause Im awake when Im tryin´ to sleep
    and when I ......... I forget to breathe
    and when I ........ when I try to heal
    I speak I shatter
    because I lie when I tell the truth
    and no, Im never coming back to you
    ...................................
    I keep, keep better, I live I shatter, speak I shatter
    cry I shatter, I shatter

    So the reason this son resonates with my is because this is my life right now
    but whatever I dont want to annoy you with that
    The point is if someone were to take a few moments to correct my mistakes and fill the spaces I coudnt I would be so grateful !!

    Wow, this song is gorgeous. I love it! Thanks for posting it. My favorite Leona song since Stone Hearts. Anyway, I think these are right...

    Sometimes I talk in the mornings when I think youre there
    I speak your name, I can smell your hair
    then reality wakes me
    sometimes I wait for you listening to every car
    that is passing by, with a racing heart, and its driving me crazy

    well I cannot break the spell that you've laid on my head and this house
    it's never gonna let me go

    'cause Im awake when I've got to sleep
    and when I ache I forget to breathe
    and when I fail when I try to heal
    I speak I shatter
    because I lie when I tell the truth
    and no, it never compares to you
    And when you left me I think you knew
    I can't get better, I live I shatter, speak I shatter
    cry I shatter, I shatter

    I take it easy, I've never been a fan of rest
    I chek it out, and I go for it, if I'm sure to land safely
    I take it easy so what the hell, what's happening?
    when I met you boy, and I let you in, my defenses got lazy


    And now I cannot break the spell that you've laid on my heart and this house
    its never gonna be the same

    'cause I'm awake when I've got to sleep
    and when I ache I forget to breathe
    and when I fail when I try to heal
    I speak, I shatter
    because I lie when I tell the truth
    and no, It never compares to you
    And when you left me I think you knew
    I can't get better, I live I shatter, speak I shatter
    cry I shatter, I shatter

    I place my bets on the broken hearted
    cause I am sure now it's the safest path I'll ever go down
    I raise my head and I know my skies will shatter
    so all of you can know
    all of you can know

    'cause I'm awake when I´ve got to sleep
    and when I ache I forget to breathe
    and when I fail when I try to heal
    I speak I shatter
    because I lie when I tell the truth
    and no, It never compares to you
    And when you left me I think you knew
    I can't get better, I live I shatter, speak I shatter
    cry I shatter, I shatter

    Smile Leona Lewis - Shatter

    Sometimes I talk in the mornings when I think you’re there
    I speak your name, I can smell your hair
    & reality wakes me
    Yeaaah
    Sometimes I wait for you, listenin’ to every car
    That is passin’ by, with a racin’ heart
    and it’s drivin me crazy
    Ohhuuuhhh
    Why can’t i break this spell that you’ve laid on my heart in this house
    It’s never gonna let me go
    woowwoooohhhohh

    [Chorus]
    Cause Im awake when I gotta´ to sleep
    and when I ache I forget to breathe
    and then I fail, when I try to heal
    I speak I shatter
    because I lie when I tell the truth
    and no, it never compares to you
    and when you left me I think you knew
    I can’t get better.
    I Live I shatter, I speak I shatter, I cry I shatter, I shatter
    I take it easy, I never been a fan of risk
    I check it out, and I go for it,
    If I’m sure to land safely
    I take it easy, so what the hell was happenin’
    When I met you boy and I let you win
    My defence’s got lazy

    and now I cannot break this spell that you’ve laid on my heart in this house
    It’s never gonna be the same.
    Nooo oooohhh ohhh,

    [Chorus]
    Cause Im awake when I gotta´ to sleep
    and when I ache I forget to breathe
    and then I fail, when I try to heal
    I speak I shatter
    because I lie when I tell the truth
    and no, it never compares to you
    and when you left me I think you knew
    I can’t get better.
    I Live I shatter, I speak I shatter, I cry I shatter, I shatter
    I place my bets on the broken hearted,
    Cause I am sure now it’s the safest path that I’ll ever go down
    I raise my head and I know my scars will show
    So all of you can know, all of you can knowww

    [Chorus]
    Cause Im awake when I gotta´ to sleep
    and when I ache I forget to breathe
    and then I fail, when I try to heal
    I speak I shatter
    because I lie when I tell the truth
    and no, it never compares to you
    and when you left me I think you knew
    I can’t get better.
    I Live I shatter, I speak I shatter, I cry I shatter, I shatter
