give me some love (not 1984)

Friday, April 21st, 2017

I’m a tourist,
Not a terrorist
I can tell you what I’m here for
I’m looking for a good year
Not 1984

Yeah, I’m a tourist,
Not a terrorist
See me coming in the front door
Looking for a good year
Not 1984

I’m not an alien,
I’m Australian
I know I sound a little strange, yes?
But don’t we all want the same thing?
A little bit of happiness

Give me some love
Give me some love
Not 1984

It’s all a distraction, guaranteed satisfaction
But only for now, not for long
Yes it’s all an illusion, all the confusion
But right now we’re singing a song
Yes it’s all in the view, so how’s it looking to you?
It’s a wild ride but don’t get me wrong
It can be amusing, but what are we choosing?
Well right now, we’re singing a song

I’m a tourist,
Not a terrorist
I can tell you what I’m here for
I’m looking for a good year
Not 1984

I’m not an alien,
I’m Australian
I know I sound a little strange, yes? Yes.
But don’t we all want the same thing?
A little bit of happiness

Give me some love
Give me some love
Not 1984

Give me some love
Give me some love
Not 1984

Give me some love (Give me some love)
Give me some love (Give me some love)
Give me some love (Give me some love)
Give me some love (Give me some love)
Give me some love (Ooh, give me some love)
Give me some love
Give me some love (Ooh, give me some love)
Give me some love (All you need is)
Give me some love
Give me some love
Give me some love

stand beside me

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Stand beside me, I’ll take your hand
Stand still while you can
You know it’s hard
When you know it’s time
Leaving all you know behind
There’s what you need, then all the rest
Please forward to new address

Stand beside me, I’ll take your hand
Stand still while you can
And if you find me wanting, take my hand
Stand still while you can

You know the storm before the calm
When there’s no room to swing your arms
As we’re looking through our prison bars
Do I see mud when you see stars?

Stand beside me, I’ll take your hand
Stand still while you can
And if you find me wanting, take my hand
Stand still while you can

Every step we take (every step we take),
When’s the one too far?
And are you listening to the trees,
When I hear the cars?

Stand beside me, I’ll take your hand
Stand still while you can
And if you find me wanting, take my hand
Stand still while you can

Stand beside me, I’ll take your hand
Stand still while you can
And if you find me wanting, take my hand
Stand still while you can

Stand still, stand still

purple haze

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Purple haze on the Blue Mountains
Galahs fly pink and grey and something
Moves in the dry grass beyond the fence

Purple haze on the Blue Mountains
The skyline pink on grey and something (moves)
Moves in the dusty room inside your head

The crush of a thousand lives beneath your feet
As you contemplate working in this heat
The flies enjoy the view across your back
And it never looked so good
It never looked so good

Purple haze on the Blue Mountains
The skyline pink on grey and something (moves)
Moves in the dusty room inside your head

And it’s a feeling
It never looked so good from where you are
It’s so easy if you don’t make it hard
Get you in, get you off, got your heart

The rush of a thousand minds will steal your sleep
And so you lie awake, you’re sweating through the heat
And as you tumble into another day
The view still seems the same
But nothing stays the same

Never knew how dry dry could be but you made it through
No news is good
News is it’s looking dry again
And you can laugh, and you can cry, and you do both
You keep it to yourself
You share it with the world

Purple haze on the Blue Mountains
Galahs fly pink and grey and something (moves)
Moves in the dry grass beyond the fence

Purple haze on the Blue Mountains

no way round

Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

If it was every day raining
If the sun never shone
I would not be complaining
Long as you came along

If it was only an ocean
I would swim it and see
Would you take to the notion?
Would you rescue me?

But how do you touch me from so far away
My pretense of sanity day after day
Lighten my load just to deal with reality
There’s no way round

What if I told you
I only live for the end
I think I’m dying,
Dying to know you
All over again

No way round (no way round)
Coming down (coming down)
When we’ve found ourselves so far from the ground
It’s insane (it’s insane)
It’s okay (it’s okay)
When there’s no way
No way round

Dying to know you

But how do you touch me from so far?
Does every step pull me to where you are?
A window of madness I’ll hold on somehow
There’s no way

Under the cover of darkness
I can always pretend
But it’s hard, hardest at night time

Coming down (coming down)
When we’ve found ourselves
So far from the ground
It’s insane (it’s insane)
It’s okay (it’s okay)
When there’s no way
No way round

Coming down (coming down)
When we’ve found ourselves
So far from the ground
It’s insane (it’s insane)
It’s okay (it’s okay)
When there’s no way
No way round

No way round
Every day rain
What if I told you?
No way round
Cover of darkness
No way round
No way round

so not real

Friday, February 16th, 2007

This is so not real
Anything can happen,
It already did.
Did I wake too soon?
Was the only thing that mattered
You?

‘Cause I don’t feel

This is so not real
Anything can happen,
It already did.
Did I wake too soon?
Was the only thing that mattered
You?

‘Cause I don’t feel
And I won’t heal
I don’t feel
I won’t heal
No

This is so not real
Anything can happen,
It already did.
Did I wake too soon?
Was the only thing that mattered…

I wake up in the morning
And it’s just another day
Though I don’t like what I’m seeing
Think there’s got to be another way
I get up and I pull on my pants
Then I go downstairs and the only thing that’s slipping through is
So not real
So not real
So not real
So not real
So not, so not real

fly away

Wednesday, September 6th, 2006

Living in a corner
Where the sunlight hardly reaches in
Hoping for the words you long for
Forget the words and start to sing
Watching with deliberation
Nothing comes to those who
Wait in line for blind salvation
Step aside and test your Faith

Fly away, high across the mountain
Fly away, leave it somewhere down there
Fly away, far above the desert

On your knees beneath the table
Should the walls all crumble in
Would they know you
Who would find you
Know enough to start again and

Fly away, high across the mountain
Fly away, leave it somewhere down there
Fly away, far above the desert
Take these wings and fly

With your mother, to your father
Know your sister, how your brother
Someone somewhere somehow

Listen with intention with the right before I’m meant to die
If that’s a plan already written
Take these wings and learn to

Fly away, high across the mountain
Fly away, leave it somewhere down there
Fly away, far above the desert
Take these wings
Take these wings
Take these wings and fly

2 chairs and one tree

Thursday, March 9th, 2006

Ever see what you want to be?
Say it’s fine for you but no time for me
I’m happy in your backyard
Just you and me, 2 chairs and one tree.

I come down look around
What have you got to hold me
I need this quick fix
Just to get me going
So much you can’t touch
Everything looks so rainbow
Comes in, goes out
There’s no time to get around to
To get me out from under

Ever see what you want to be?
Say it’s fine for you but no time for me
I’m happy in your backyard
Just you and me, 2 chairs and one tree.

I am crying
No one seeing all my trying
I get so I don’t know
Which way I should be going
To get me out from under

Ever see what you want to be?
Say it’s fine for you but no time for me
I’m happy in your backyard
Just you and me…
I’m looking to hold on to
What’s right for me, if it’s right for you
I’m happy in your backyard
Just you and me, 2 chairs and one tree.

I come down, another round
But I only feel like slowing down
Here it’s so clear
There’s no where we should be going

Ever see what you want to be?
Say it’s fine for you but no time for me
I’m happy in your backyard
Just you and me…
I’m looking to hold on to
What’s right for me, if it’s right for you
(I’m happy) I’m happy in your backyard
Just you and me, 2 chairs and one tree.

I’m happy

funny

Sunday, March 5th, 2006

The sun never sets
And life never gets old
I am in your debt
For taking the same road

I was in a hole
Never saw the whole view
Little did I know
You were in the same room

Funny you should say that
I could never talk to you before
Funny you should say that
Funny you’re still here at all

Thoughtless I was
Almost a lost cause
I came back because
You gave me what for

Funny you should say that
You were always talking to the wall
Funny you should say that
Funny you’re still here at all

It’s funny that you said what you said
the words you spoke
playing with my head
and I awoke
rising from the dead
it’s so strange
my world is rearranged
blue pill or the red
It’s funny that you said what you said

I’m beginning to

It’s funny that you stuck it out
went toe to toe
said it like you know
and now I know
what it was about

The sun never sets
(funny you should say that)
and life never gets old
[I’m beginning to]
I was in your debt
(funny you should say that)
for taking the same road
[I’m beginning to]

The sun never sets
(funny you should say that)
[I’m beginning to]
I was in your debt
(funny you should say that)

It’s funny that you said what you said
the words you spoke
playin with my head
and I awoke
rising from the dead
(funny you should say that)

my world has changed
blue pill or the red
I’m rearranged
risen from the dead
Now I’m looking at what I’m seein
and listenin to what I’m hearin
and livin and always believin

believe again

Tuesday, September 13th, 2005

You are what I long for,
The reason I came here
And you are why I want to stay
You’re my secret garden,
The air I breathe
The sunlight in my day
I have known hunger,
Times I have run dry
But you fill me up inside
I can sit and watch you,
Time is nothing now
I’m more than satisfied

You make me believe again
I will fear no more
Everything conceive again
You make me believe

Standing in the corner, thinking of the sky
But only seeing gray
You help me paint the silence, nothing looks the same
I’m watching every word you say

You make me believe again
I will fear no more
Everything conceive again
You make me believe

I have lived, I have loved,
I have lost all I was
I have seen what it’s like at the end
I have died many times, now I’m back from the dead
And I live and I feel once again

You make me believe again
I will fear no more
Everything conceive again
You make me believe

photograph

Sunday, September 11th, 2005

Gotta live my life until my life comes to an end
Wrapped in plastic like a human cocoon
Gotta live my life until my life comes to an end
Wrapped in plastic like a human cocoon

This is not you
This is not me
This is only what we see
This is insane
This is all a game
This is life and death again, again

I’m not a photograph, look at me I’m ordinary
I am no photograph, nothing of no consequence

Gotta live my life until my life comes to an end
Wrapped in plastic like a human cocoon
Gotta live my life until my life comes to an end
Wrapped in plastic like a human cocoon

This is not you
This is not me
This is what we think we need
This is insane
This is all a game
This is life and death again, again

I’m not a photograph, look at me I’m ordinary
I am no photograph, nothing of no consequence
I’m not a photograph, I’m extraordinary
I am no photograph, could there be no consequence?

I am my world
I am my truth
I am all you do not see
This is insane
No, this is all too sane
This is life and death again, again.

I’m not a photograph, look at me I’m ordinary
I am no photograph, nothing of no consequence
I’m not a photograph, I’m extraordinary
I am no photograph, could there be no consequence?
