australia lyrics – gyroscope

in the early 80’s when i washed up on the sh*r*
i could breathe a little more than i would realize
you can call me crazy, you can call me what you will
you could take the bitter pill, if it helps you sleep at night

its a long long way my crooked friend
such a long long way back
home
so close, yet we’ve come so far
so close, still we’ve got so far

i can safely say we feel as safe as we like
lest we forget those who die, i never will
such a perfect island, tucked away in the sea
the real land of the free, do you here me

its a long way home my crooked friend
but i do appreciate the time we spent
its a long long way back home
such a long long way back
home

so close, yet we’ve come so far
so close, still we’ve got so far (x3)

a long way home
