lyrics

When we first met
I was covered
In the hills of my home
But I was hiding
All my dark clouds
On the inside of my bones

Because this black dog it
Followed my father
And follow his father before him
But I thought that
I could be different
And I wouldn’t have
To let the bastard in

Now these pieces they don’t seem to fit
But I hope that we can hold them
Hold them in our hands
And if this curse lifts
I will be like sunlight
Shining on your garden
Filling up this land

When we started
You were brighter
Than our flowers in the spring
Now in your eyes all
I see is winter as we wait
For them to buzz you in

Because you’re so tired
And I’m so tired
And our little boy
Just stares out at the trees
Because the man that I’ve become Is so far away
From the one I meant to be

Now these pieces they don’t seem to fit
But I hope that we can hold them
Hold them in our hands
And if this curse lifts
I will be like sunlight
Shining on your garden
Filling up this land

And my heart sinks
Because my mind thinks that I
I know why you’ve come
But you smile and say that
I’m still your lover babe and
I’m still the father of our son

So we hold our hope out like a light
That flickers in the dark
When the wind is blowing strong
Because all that any of us want
Is to find our own heart
And a place where we belong

Though these pieces they don’t seem to fit
I know that we can hold them
Hold them in our hands
And when this curse lifts
I will be like sunlight
Shining in your garden
Filling up this land

‘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
