And the Missus City caught you out Cut like a sailor in your winter coat I am a dreamer - I spat you out And you get your guns of Navarone out What could be better than sitting here I could swear that was a sin in my ear I cut the by-lines and holed you out But how could I block out your black eyes

If you make that show If you make that show That's a hard way to go If you make that show It's been five long years It's been five long years Through the creed and the creeks It's been five long years I'm going to kill that man I'm going to kill that man The letter's in the mail I'm going to kill that man Don't you know where you belong Know where you belong Won't you listen to me Don't you know where you belong

If you see colours I see the pattern Can you teach me that There is a place without weight That comes naturally to me If only I could write it all down like the roots of a diagram Marry the lines on the page You are healer / you are a healer You are a healer / you are a healer But how were we to know what would go down? And what slays you Are the blacks of her eyes The white of her skin Takes you in I called you back when I lost your track Finally a cul-de-sac When I lost your track And who could know Who could tell In that cul-de-sac, that stolen track How were we to know what would go down? You see colours, I see the patterns Can you teach me that There is a place without weight That comes naturally to me

A cannonball in time Watch him fade away Saddle and reins And a rabbit for your ride And the Brooklyn lights Watch them fade away And the snow in June Wind that eats you through And where are you my love In these mountains blue? It kills your bones my love It kills your bones

about

The Maple Trail NSW, Australia

The Maple Trail is something of a personal odyssey, a musical journey that has traversed the ravines of Sydney’s metropolitan limits and rearticulated itself across hundreds of hours of tape and performances.
