CAR HEADLIGHTS

It doesn't seem so wrong
I've thought about it enough now
We don't live forever
Anyway I'm well past it
My brain's plastered like a cane toad

Car headlights keep blinding me
I have to keep behind this tree
Keep this body here with me
Only bushland around
You should have shot him down

Largely silent night
Except for insects
I would gladly pay tomorrow
For all the things I've borrowed
The old days don't give answers

Car headlights keep blinding me
I have to keep behind this tree
Keep this body here with me
Only bushland around
You should have shot him down

ELECTRICAL STORM   [back to top]

Twelve o'clock in the morning
I can't even raise my head
Been here since six this evening
Feel like I'm glued to this bed
Watchin' this electrical storm

Lookin' out at the lightnin'
Hear the thunder above the fields
Gettin' closer each moment
And I know just how you feel
Well you better believe it
But I couldn't leave anyway
Watchin' this electrical storm

Well I had my reservation booked
On the first bus out of town
I thought that it would take forever
Just to leave this one story town
And I didn't think of leaving
No, I'm still here in this house
Watchin' this electrical storm

And I don't need to be told that maybe
Things are better somewhere else
And I'm well aware of the likelihood
Of being left here on the shelf
And I didn't end up leavin'
No I'm still here in this bed
Watchin' this electrical storm

When you ask me how it feels
An' I tell you how it feels
And we had no reservations
About leavin' anyway
And I knew you couldn't stand it
And I stayed here all the same
Watchin' this electrical storm
