AUSTRALIA

 

I come from an island, thatís bigger than life
Many special people, not just black or white
But nothings as it seems, when you're in the never never
No matter how clever you are

A place with a dream time
And human's right that have been torn
A wire was crossed, and a culture was lost

Don't tell me that I can't go there today
A free country, thatís what you say
But people got categorized, and others got itemized
Most got mesmerized by a 9 to 5

People always saying, I just follow my dream
It's a beautiful thing, it's a beautiful thing
As we try to make a difference, in every little instance
It all adds up, it all adds up in the end

Our streams used to be crystal and pure
Our dreams, were dreams we could fulfill
Now the water's all gone, and grass has started to grow
So quickly we forget what lay here before

Forget about the balance of life and land
Take it all, give the back of your hand
Move 'em along, you don't give a damn
How's this for a plan

Now as I wake up, to the sound of 300 cockatoos
Celebrating a new day, in their beautiful way
I give thanks to the people, ancient owners of the Land
Care taking traditions with a rational plan
Now things have changed, not the same as before
It's been so long, no one remembers anymore
Change peoples lives without a thought, are you insane?
Ya don't bush tucker... we gotta fast food chain?

So please join me.... and take a deep breath
Think about this country and all beauty we have left
Think about life, and other people's dreams
In a country that means so much to me

People always saying, I just follow my dream
It's a beautiful thing, it's a beautiful thing
As we try to make a difference, in every little instance
It all adds up, it all adds up in the end

This beautiful place makes me feel so high
The power of this place..... let your soul, lets your soul fly

BEAUTIFUL REGGAE

Staring at the moon, thinking of you
My mind and my eyes mesmerized
Hypnotized ... by the groove

I see your shadow, as you say hello
Moving real slow, cause we so mellow
As we dance on sand in the moonlight

To the pulse of the ocean, as we make our own motion
As we sip on the potion, and get down to the..

Beautiful Reggae, Beautiful Reggae

The way you shake those hips
The way you move those lips
The way your smile makes me feel so high
That thing-a make me, feel like I can fly

I just love to please ya
Every time that I see ya
I can never leave ya
And I can never sleep when I'm with you

No matter what the world says, you're the one for me
You and the reggae, is all that I need, so gimme that..

Beautiful Reggae, Beautiful Reggae

Come a bit closer, let me breathe you in
Come a bit closer, we slowly begin
Dusk till dawn, in the soft moonlight
Sand in your clothes, makes it feel just right

Those sexy curves on our beach dance floor
Those sexy curves leave me beggin' for more
Those sexy curves on our beach dance floor
Those sexy curves make me beg for more

So gimme the... 

Beautiful Reggae, Beautiful Reggae

D-STOMP BLUES

Most people, spend their whole life
Searching for what we have
Girl do you understand, how lucky we are
Must have been an angel, that brought you to my arms

And as I stare, upon this setting sun
As I pray on this moon for my love to come
Much love for the angel
That brings my princess back to me

Ya know don't ever doubt my love for you
You will never catch me trying to leave you 
Because many times around, many, many, many times 
I travel this world Just to find you and be back with my girl

And these feelings, they be true
My love is endless for you
Much love, for the angel 
That brings my princess back to me

Now it's time for you to go but not because of me
And I do the same to you girl, sometimes this world is cruel
So tonight let this love we have be like no other
I play the blues on my guitar, get you ready to be my lover

And as I stare, upon this setting sun
As I pray on this moon for my love to come
Much love for the angel
That brings my princess back to me

SISTA

Sista, why you look at me so slowly 
Sista, they say you like to go down lowly
Sista, say you want to get to know me
Sista, c'mon c'mon 

Look at me in the eye
I'm not that kinda guy, know it don't matter to you
Listen up sista, ya don't no mister payin' all o' your dues
Time and time again, leavin' all your friends
Gonna head up and down the strip again
Six hours till the sunrise

Ya know I'm pondering the thought about the lover in your life
Thinkin' about you all the time, about to loose his mind
Tryin' to find a sign to justify a little bit of love for you

But baby look a little closer at this situation
Runnin' out of time for your hesitation
Be a good girl, give some love to your man
Try using your head, instead of your hand

Sister, my little rolling stone
Sister, you know it's time to go home
Sister, you're just a little rollin' stone, sister

STRAWBERRIES, PANCAKES AND ANGELS

There ain't no distance I wouldn't drive to be with
Ain't no mountain I wouldn't climb to sit next to you
I would save a kiss for a year, just to give it to you

Wrote you a love letter in the sand,
I washed it out to you with a tear and a torch in my hand 
The night time's so cold without you 

I love the way you smile, I shiver when you kiss me 
I just flew all the way back from Sydney 
to arrive upon your door step
Can you feel the magic in the air?

Strawberries, pancakes and angels 
Three things remind of you. 
Well I been driving down this road for ages
Just to sing this to you.
Strawberries, pancakes and angels
I love the recipe that you're made of
I'm coming for you my little baby

Well I drove past the scarecrow and into the ghetto 
I swam from the beach right into South Central
Nowhere I wouldn't go, I don't even mind a little snow

Ya may think I'm crazy when I tell you you're my baby
From 10,000 miles away you're driving me crazy 
The days seem so gray without you 
The nighttime's so cold without you

Love to watch you get up, bug you in the morning
Don't mean to stare but you know I'm just adoring 
I'm in such a daze around my angel's haze 

CHORUS

Everyday my love keeps on growing
Like an endless river, full and a-flowing 
Everyday I wake to the thought of you 
What a way to wake to the thought of you
I wish I could be with you home soon 
I wish I could be home with you


I can't wait to watch you bounce around
Watch you spinnin' round and round
Never ending love in time
Gonna wrap your soul with mine 
Even if I run out of breath
I still find enough to whisper I love you

CHORUS

SUNDAY MORNING AVENUE

Hello, as stated by the sunray
A new day, all starts with the sunray
Cozy and warm with a little bit of you
Crack in cover, chills push us together

Lie down, don't get up just yet 
I got so much I need to get off my chest
So I can make some space for you to rest your head

Breathing in time together, in harmony together
Man it don't get much better than this
I tickle your ribs a little, now you're stuck in the middle 
Sorry to wake you, couldn't help myself 

No rush, just sleep, no need to go nowhere
Shut the door, keep out the cold, no need to go nowhere
I have a place with some space, for you to rest your head

I give you my soul with my all, my one, my only childhood girl
My life, with you, through the ups and downs,
Now we're back in this town on the ground 
In my dreams, I see the sun through the clouds
Liviní where we want to be not so long, in this life
We gotta make the most of what we got and I don't want to ever stop 

Loviní you man it's true, what else we gonna do, 
That compares to what we have and all that we been through
Endless love on this Sunday morning avenue 
Not a care in this world except to be with you

Lie down, don't get up just yet 
I got so much I need to get off my chest
So I can make some space for you to rest your head

TINY ISLAND

Sittin' on a tiny island in the middle of the ocean
Watchin' these children play, the rest of the world seems so far away
But it's closer than you think, right around the corner
Hard to see if you never crossed your own border
Time to take a look around

Stuck in a 9 to 5, you look out the window to remember you're alive
Working so damn hard for that false sense of comfort, ain't it sweet 
Ya knowa sometimes, it seems like a good idea at the time
Then again, you look back, I see it all of the time

People saying where'd it go, yesterday I didn't know
Wish I had another go, please say it isn't so
Life it seemed to pass me by, wish I was another guy
Why the hell am I still here, guess I'll wait another year

CHORUS 
Cause I see so many troubles in so many places 
So many solutions in many faces
Some people try and some people donít
And some people just don't give a ????

As I try to clear my mind, to take it all in
Some of the most strange and beautiful that I ever did see
I think about the world and all of her people
All caught up in one great big sequel
Over and over and over again, makin' the same mistakes
The same double takes 
Now my lady to the right of me, and her beautiful family
Living in her driftwood hut, it's all fixed up with leaves and glue
Some product on her head, some change in her pocket
She chops up her fruit, and sells it for a dollar on a good day
So happy as she says, it don't really matter if I make any today 

Now you sir, at your office in a panic 
Angry at your day cause you got stuck in traffic, in your AC BMW
Today he's watching his money fall, yelling why, why oh why!
Wondering how, he's gonna pay off all of his debts before he dies

Watch him as the coffee flows, steady as the shacking goes,
Light another cigarette, don't worry I can handle it
Forgot about his family, love and the unity
Why the hell is he still here, I guess he'll wait another year 

CHORUS 

So many languages, so many religions
So many colours, give some love to the others
'Cause everyone laughs and everybody cries 
Everybody gets sad and everyone smiles


It's funny to me, what some people think they need to be happy 
Said it's funny to me
Some say it's money, but that's not true 
What you make in a minute she makes in a year or two
But she's happier than you

Some say love is the key, I wish we all believed it
Peace & Unity man you know that we need it
I say love is the key, I wish we all believed it
Peace & Unity man you know that we need it
I say love is the key, I wish we all believed it
Peace & Unity man you know that we need it
Say It's not hard to see, it's not hard to feel
I need a little more love from you, a little more love from me

CHORUS

UNDERWATER DREAMING

We wake up to the pounding rain against the ceiling
Take it in, like I'm underwater breathing, under water dreaming
My favorite sound.... rain upon the ceiling


I open eyes, caress your skin
Like pieces of a puzzle we slowly begin
Feel your heart beat next to mine
Two souls align

With each and every drop that hits my tin shed
Each and every sound that passes through my head
Notes symbolize change in the season
Listen to the pulse of our mother, she's breathing

And I believe things happens for a reason
Sometimes, itís hard to believe in
But just sit back, enjoy the ride
Listen to the groove and let your soul thrive

Take it slow and your underwater breathing
To the groove and your underwater dreaming
Bring your body closer to mine
Let this music make your soul fly

Take it slow and your underwater breathing
To the groove and your underwater dreaming
Bring your body closer to mine
Let this music let you free your mind

WINDY CREEK 

Well I been smiling for a week, sittin' on down by windy creek 
And I say, itís nice to see you
Right on by the rail road track, I'm gonna get me some of that
And I sing... it's not time to leave just yet 

Well you been twistin' all my thoughts around
Now I can't get out of town, gonna sit with you 
And watch this moon for two, watch this moon with you

We just could be, the perfect picture, the perfect scene
We are lucky be, at windy doing nothing, blowin' in the breeze
Makin all the trees go ohhh...

I been debatin' what there sayin' and I think their just complaining
Donít mater none when your on the run from nothing
With nothing together we be

Now we get to the point in the conversation
I choke in this situation but I say, I say l love you, and you know

We just could be, the perfect picture, the perfect scene
We are lucky be, at windy doing nothing, blowin' in the breeze
Chillin' with the bees, makin' all the trees go ohhh...
