lyrics

So it's been all these years
The old school photograph's becoming more unclear
Look at us, look at me, girl look at you
This will be my big regret
I had the numbers but I never had the strength
Now i'm bent out of the shape that I was in

I just had to drive along this road
I got behind the wheel and I got so close
I just had to know, I just had to know

You can't predict the way things go
But I would play this story out at night when my eyes begin to close
Now it'll hurt, and it'll scar, and it'll show

I just had to drive along this road
I got behind the wheel and I got so close
I just had to know, I just had to know

I remember the way she'd shine and radiate beneath this southern sky
And I remember when her daddy moved away

I just had to drive along this road
I got behind the wheel and I got so close
I just had to know, I just had to know
And all I did was find her hand
Had been given to another, another man
And I just had to know

I live on top of a mountain in Victoria, Australia. I play guitar, banjo and sing... On rough days I like Tequila shots with a beer chaser.
