Araluen

How longs the drive to Araluen,

Where the tulip show is on this time of year,

And you take the road that winds past Rocky Gulley to bide some time,

But the morning sun’s too cold to dry your tears,

You clear your head and re-adjust the mirror,

And you wish you lost your way but find your there,

And the day is dark and cold,

Too late for winter,

But the shadows now are lifting and it’s clearer,

And I know it’s hard to let it go,

It’s hard to let it end,

But tomorrow the morning sun will rise,

And a new day will begin,

You find his back is dark against the colours,

And you leave his hand that’s fallen next to you,

For the two of you the world has stopped it’s spinning,

It’s over now just standing still,

Like the flowers all in bloom,

And I know it’s hard to let it go,

It’s hard to let it end,

But tomorrow the morning sun will rise,

And a new day will begin,

Your friends will come around you with their wine,

And they’ll hold you whilst you cry and talk it through,

And they’ll try to make you laugh beside the fire,

Like times before with the girl they knew,

And you’ll remember,

And I know it’s hard to let it go,

It’s hard to let it end,

But tomorrow the morning sun will rise,

And a new day will begin,

Doin’ Fine

I know all the answers,

But I’m not going tell no one,

I know the direction,

But I’m not going point it out,

I know how you’re feeling,

But I’m not going to come around,

I see it burning,

It’s going burn down to the ground,

Oh I’m feeling fine in my own mind,

Oh I’m doin’ fine,

I know a change is coming,

But I’m not going to shout and yell,

I know all you secrets,

But I’m keeping them to myself,

I know I should be running,

Just to keep up with the crowd,

But I don’t need to worry,

So I’m just sitting this one out,

Oh I’m feeling fine in my own mind,

Oh I’m doin’ fine,

I could tell you a story,

But I’m not going to write it down,

And there’s no point in asking,

Cause I’m not going to spell it out,

I hear the people calling,

But I’m not coming to the door,

I know they’ll soon be leaving,

Won’t even know what they came here for,

Oh I’m feeling fine in my own mind,

Oh I’m doin’ fine,

Child

You got it wrong,

He got it right,

So many times,

It’s a big world that you made him fight,

So many times,

Bare feet on the kitchen chair,

So many nights,

Looking out for you on the street,

So many times,

But if I could be there,

Holding his hand,

Watching him waiting for his old man,

I’d hold him in my arms,

Lift him up,

But you know I can’t,

I can’t help that child,

He’s waiting for you,

I can’t help that child he’s waiting for change,

Change,

Big shot,

You’re the king of the road,

Driving in your car,

Throw your money into the ring,

Of a late night bar,

Like a loner with nothing to do and with nothing to lose,

You don’t hear and you don’t see him calling for you,

But if I could drag you off your feet,

Take you to the hills where you could see,

Around you,

Open your eyes,

See a little bird learning how to fly,

I can’t help that child,

He’s waiting for you,

I can’t help that child he’s waiting for change,

Change,

The big world keeps spinning,

The big world keeps crashing in,

The big world’s not changing,

The big world’s too much for him,

But if I could be there,

Holding his hand,

Watching him waiting,

Trying to understand,

I’d hold him in my arms,

Lift him up,

But you know I can’t,

I can’t help that child,

He’s waiting for you,

I can’t help that child,

He’s waiting for you,

I can’t help that child,

He’s waiting for you,

I can’t help that child,

He’s waiting for you

Finding Out

Try to forget,

Cigarette as I fumble

Ash on the sheets

Watch it fall watch it crumble

Black on my face and there’s sweat on my pillow

I try hard to sleep

Close my eyes

Close the window

Finding out is the hardest thing

Sends your heart racing down, down, down

Lay me out

So I can’t feel a thing

Knock me out

Put me under

My mind repeats

Half asleep the door opens

My heart skips a beat like a crash in slow motion

A kiss on the cheek

You don’t speak

Keep your eyes low

A light on the street

Pulls away past the window

Chorus

I’m drowning in sand

I’m burning but I don’t feel a thing

I try to see all of the good things around me

I take myself out on the street to think clearly

I jump on the first bus I see

What am I doing

I crash

Head on glass

I don’t care

In the Night

In the night I need a fire,

and I’ve got one burning,

so take a seat by mine,

anytime girl,

I’ve got time,

I’ve got wine by my bed,

And you won’t taste any better,

take a note of that,

These feelings come and go,

I don’t listen,

Cause I get caught up under the spell,

Of every flame that I see,

So take a note of that

Take a note of that,

I don’t fight fires in the night,

And I’ve got one burning,

So take a seat by mine anytime girl,

I’ve got time,

I’ve got wine by my bed,

And you won’t taste any better,

Take a note of that

These feelings come and go,

I don’t listen,

Cause I get caught up under the spell,

Of every flame that I see,

Take a note of that,

Cause I’ve been waiting too long for you to come by,

I don’t hold out,

If I need a fire side,

Said if I need a fire side,

Gonna find me a fire side

New Home

It interrupted cricket with a score on the board,

As they lay down the bat,

Tomorrow they’ll be leaving the kids on the street,

Is all the notice they’ll get,

The neighbours dogs are barking,

They’re used to it,

It’s been six months or more,

Soon they’ll be unpacking but there’s things that they’ll leave in the boxes instead,

One of them will cry the others happy to get into another bed,

Once they all protested but they’re over it,

They’ve moved twelve times or more,

As the truck bumps,

Down the path away,

No one says a word as they pass through the gate,

They eat a box of chocolates that they get on the way,

And press the wrappers flat,

They stop in at the station to stop the bottles rattling,

Somewhere in the back,

No ones really talking,

They’re over it,

But they remember what to say,

As the truck bumps,

Down the path away,

Make a wish now everyone,

As they pass through the gate,

Oh there they go,

Off to a new home,

Oh there they go,

Off to a new home,

Tomorrow she’ll be waiting with the kids at the swings,

At the Town Hall Park,

They come to sit together as she shuffles the deck,

As the day grows dark,

No one is complaining,

They’re used to it,

They’re just thinking ’bout their score,

As the truck bumps,

Down the path away,

Make a wish now everyone,

As they pass through the gate,

Oh there they go,

Off to a new home,

Oh there they go,

Off to a new home,

Rockin’Chair

I can take it for a while
Invitations
Another reason to smile
But sometimes I need a passage out
Just a chance to get some air
Where I can work things out
Sitting in my rocking chair
My rocking chair

School reunion I let pass me by
I bought the ticket and I’d booked the flight
I really wanted to be there
See some people from that time
But as it is I let it go
I just sat there rocking slow
In my rocking chair

My
My rocking chair

I’m sinking into my wishing well
I’m floating on my fortune pool
I’m waiting for my mind to ride

I’m waiting

come take me

I’m shifting into another time
Cause I remember things well
When I’m in my own world
In my rocking chair

My
My rocking chair
