Track Name: Passion Parade
Lyrics: Passion Parade – Kaurna Cronin

People say she's lonely
others say she's wild
Friends say she's moving on
some say she's mine
doesn't pay to be down and out
for too long a while
'cause Hindley street only feels like heaven
for a little while

You drove south to Adelaide
found feet on the passion parade
Country girl
I never would have stopped you babe
what's new to love if people don't change
Country girl
Runaway
Chasing cheap replacements
swapping gin for vodka
while neon bars sparkle
in black leather brogues
In the those sugary few hours
you forget everything
and you know it don't fix nothing
but you just wanna get high

You drove south to Adelaide
found feet on the passion parade
Country girl
I never would have stopped you babe
what's new to love if people don't change
Country girl

Don't wanna grow up too fast

Scared of coming last
Don't wanna be the lonely one

Don't wanna grow up too fast
Don't wanna die young
Scared of coming last
Don't wanna be the lonely one
Track Name: Forgetting The Blues
Forgetting The Blue
I guess I'll never know where your head is at
I painted you in colour but you dressed in black
still illuminating golden years gone by
staring at a photo of yourself and you start to cry
when the streets don't seem to see your point of view
while the painter slowly points his brush to you

I'll be forgetting
I'll be forgetting
I'll be forgetting the blue

You're well beyond the shadow that you once wore
still those ailing spirits are rapping on your door
Forget about the stones standing all in a line
there's nothing more insignificant than time
although the stones may slip and slide from you
while you say you want your solitude

I'll be forgetting
I'll be forgetting
I'll be forgetting the blue

I'll be forgetting
I'll be forgetting
I'll be forgetting the blue
Track Name: Never Got You Off My Mind
Never Get You Off My Mind
Your yellow summer dress
I thought you'd keep forever
'cause every step you took
seemed in the right direction
Your pale light complexion
the depth within your gaze
at first made me afraid
but now I know you better

'Cause every finer detail
every conversation
every memory in time
said I'll never get you off my mind

Under manufactured rain
your rose gold ring went down the drain
I could have held you there forever
naked and in pain
illusions in the clouds
and you spoke everything so proud
right before the darkness
I wrapped my world around your neck

'Cause every finer detail
every conversation
every memory in time
said I'll never get you off my mind

And I wouldn't take it back
not for anything I lack
we hardly need to speak
the breath within your cheeks
I'll know until my days are done
I'll always know you better

'Cause every minor detail
every conversation
every memory in time
said I'll never get you off my mind

'Cause every finer detail
every conversation
every memory in time
said I'll never get you off my mind
I'll never get you off my mind
Track Name: Black Cotton
Black Cotton
Dressed in black cotton
the kettle's on the stove
All the lights and humble wisdom
you forever told
Children at your feet
as we looked up to a mighty soul
I could still smell your leather boots
telling tales of roses red and white
while the tea was getting cold

We all feel the rain
in winter we get cold
we're all forever ageing
some of us don't grow old
We all live to learn
learn to love the ones we loose
with colours not designed to fade
reminding me of you

Coloured head to toe
with younger spirits than your own
I was hiding in the office
there comes a time you learn to feel alone
Mother I see you wave your wand
singing carols from the kitchen
I remember thinking
one day I will sing along
but now you're gone

We all feel the rain
in winter we get cold
we're all forever ageing
but some of us don't grow old
We all live to learn
learn to love the ones we loose
with colours not designed to fade
reminding me of you

There's only one release
the release is the reward
There's only one reward
the reward is the release
There's only one release
the release is the return
of something so magnificent

We all feel the rain
in winter we get cold
we're all forever ageing
but some of us don't grow old
We all live to learn
learn to love the ones we loose
with colours not designed to fade
reminding me of you
Track Name: I Killed My Own
I Killed My Own
Did I just forget
or are they now dead
the things that I felt
and all that I said
I threw all my cares
and I broke all my trust
I guess you never
asked me enough

So you build the wire
lock the gate as you go
it's not like we need boundaries
when were feeling alone

I think I killed my own
in trying to be selfless
left on the east end
in a cab bound for darkness
and you'll give me yours to hold
I'll pretend that they fit so damn perfect

I've killed all my own
buried them dead
be sure and be wary
of resentment you've bred
If I get to talking
just cut me off there
no room for two voices
inside of this head

I think I killed my own
in trying to be selfless
left on the east end
in a cab bound for darkness
and you'll give me yours to hold
I'll pretend that they fit so damn perfect

I know that you trust me
cause you want to share yours
it hurts that I'm wishing
you'd listen not talk

I think I killed my own
in trying to be selfless
left on the east end
in a cab bound for darkness
and you'll give me yours to hold
I'll pretend that they fit so damn perfect
I think I killed my own
I think I killed my own
Track Name: Lavender Bay
Lavender Bay
You led me into Sydney rain
with nothing but your name
High on hills where moments fleet
the harbour at your feet
The stairways down are twisted
It's all so overgrown

It's as though no one comes down here
the pavements also,
all so alone
The jacarandas rich this time of year
the ferns are growing
down beneath those terraces
you said you dreamt of owning
But it's more than shades of purple
amongst this great unknown

Take a hold, of all of the things that make you whole
Don't let go, all of the things that make you so

Up the railway yard to where the faces stuck in stone
A lonely walk to the mansions where the roses, all in rows
No one ever stops down here, cartoons the watchful eye
Counting every footstep in Wendy's evening light

Take a hold, all of the things that make you whole
Don't let go, all of the things that make you so

Does the lavender and bark chips still smell the same
Do the angels trumpets still call your name
Is that towers window still the perfect frame
Do the angels trumpets still call his name

Take a hold, all of the things that make you whole
Don't let go, all of the things that make you so
Track Name: Always Never Alone
Always Never Alone
Wood crate cafe's
You know my type
you kissed me tenderly
on a cold Port Fairy night
we braved the distance
at times we're scared
If you got the hope
then honey you're well prepared

You bottled up your heart and soul
pocket watches, boomerangs and letters I adored
You let me go yes I'll admit I've got my flaws
You bottled up your heart and soul
So I'll forever know
I'm not alone

Our endless view
where we'll be Eagles on the hill
our hands get to wandering
'cause you want me to feel
my company, my valentine
see those lights out to the coast
There's a town so far below us
they'll never know how far we'll go

You bottled up your heart and soul
pocket watches, boomerangs and letters I adored
You let me go yes I'll admit I've got my flaws
You bottled up your heart and soul
So I'd forever know
I'm not alone
You're not alone
We're not alone
Track Name: 5019
5019
There was blood on the hands of a hungry sailor
there was smoke on the tide and men on the sands
no fortune for those who dared to survive
savages, nobles and convicts all land
The jetty is getting shorter but no one seems to care
and the birds gone quiet at Malcom's point
the waters getting darker with the bodies gone missing
and the ghosts of swimmers on the groyne

Everything you love you lose
it was all yellow and blue
now it's all just avenues

There's lonely stumps in the sand where the seagulls cry
down that Glanville Railway line
As the world war clock strikes 6 on the dot
won't you take me back to 1849

Everything you love you lose
it was all yellow and blue
now it's all just avenues

Everything you love you lose
it was all yellow and blue
now it's all avenues
Everything you love you lose
it was all yellow and blue
now it's all just avenues
that which works is never used
and life seems better than the news
in five thousand nineteen
Track Name: Limping Dove
Limping Dove
Dry eyes, christmas morning
flying or just free fallin'
forgotten what I know
Eyes to close to vision miracles unfold

If you never fall, you never break,
you never learn, you never wait,
you never grow, you're never living
You never hurt, you never lost,
you never cried, you never loved,
you never lied, you've never given
You never sung, you never screamed,
laughed, smiled or dreamed,
thought or fought too caught on dying
time will come,
with the limping dove
and you will never fall again

Blue night, new years calling
Driving forth or just a crawling
resolutions on hold
tried to knot the ropes
fingers too cold
If you never fall, you never break,
you never learn, you never wait,
you never grow, you're never living
You never hurt, you never lost,
you never cried, you never loved,
you never lied, you've never given
You never sung, you never screamed,
laughed, smiled or dreamed,
thought or fought too caught on dying
time will come,
with the limping dove
and you will never fall again

Lowdown, winter's eve
maybe I could have been
more persistent, or wrong
skies will be the boundaries
we'll aim beyond

If you never fall, you never break,
you never learn, you never wait,
you never grow, you're never living
You never hurt, you never lost,
you never cried, you never loved,
you never lied, you've never given
You never sung, you never screamed,
laughed, smiled or dreamed,
thought or fought too caught on dying
