Hope Lights the way from the ocean to the highlands.
I'm on a tiny plane over Bass Straits to King Island.
Where the Forties like thunder roar and the sea loves to kiss the shore
nothings ever as it seems man Don't wake me if i'm dreaming
The green ants sleep below as the sun melts the tarmac
Two worlds collide..the stars shine brightest in the outback
For the souls who gave all to be free and for a land that they never got to see
they say that seeing is believing but you cant see songlines or dreamtime.
I see it in your eyes I see it in your eyes
the ocean to the desert and the outback stars the red earth and the big sky the floods the droughts the fires I want to keep believing..
Today were alive and flying high in a tiny plane in the sky
you've got to keep believing
I want to keep believing
Track Name: Alice
Dawn breaks the night of an outback town
and the sun rises up and burns off the crowd
theres a big red rock got people walking round and round
Like theyre looking for something that cant be found
A girl and a boy from the emerald Isle
went out to Oz on a prayer with a smile
He waltzed off with an outback girl
left her all on her own at the bottom of the world
And in the town called Alice
homeless sleep out in a dry river bed
filled with danger and heartche
Theres a a whole lot of people being put to the test.......
Thursday night out in annies place
shes selling pictures of dreamtime all tattered and creased
On a hot thirsty night I got out of a car and
heard her singing Irish love songs in a pole dancing bar
Shes like the Brumbies runnin wild out on doughboy creek
when she sings in your ear she makes your knees go weak
Shes an Angel in the dustbowl I know shell realises
shell be leaving alice when the sweet sun rises
