lyrics

Or the last message on our phone?
Or are we all of the thoughts that fill up
our heads when we are alone?
Are we all that we buy?
Or are we the price that we pay?
Or are we the sum of all of the stupid mistakes we know we have made?

Because our cruel happiness
And our cardboard love and trust
Well it’s pulled her from our fingertips
And turned us into dust

Are we our quiet sighs?
Or all the shit that we post online?
Or are we all we said after too much of that wine?
Are we a light in the street?
Or are we a voice in the dark?
Or are we the desert squeezed into our brother’s heart?

Because our cruel happiness
And our cardboard love and trust
Well it’s pulled her from our fingertips
And turned us into dust

But the pieces of you they fall from the roof
Like leaves in the wind blowing out
of the depths of my heart
When we set our spirits loose in the yard
Now they’re calling to us, and the faraway stars
Saying we’re here, we’re free and we are waking up

And I know that she lives in a place that we never go
And she speaks in a language that we don’t know

So are we the space in between growing up and growing old
Are we the face of the stranger lost out in the cold?
Are we the years going by?
Or are we what we leave behind?
Or are we all of the beautiful things that we find?

But the pieces of you they fall from the roof
Like leaves in the wind blowing
Out of the depths of my heart
When we set our spirits loose in the yard
Now they’re calling to us, and the faraway stars
Saying we’re here, we’re free and we are waking up

‘Australia has a healthy number of musicians exploring the sounds of folk music so it's impressive when one comes along that really stands out. Tim's voice is like cut marble - it's aesthetically impressive but it also carries a hefty weight with it - and Tim uses that voice masterfully.’ Dave Ruby Howe, Music Director - Triple J Unearthed
