Homesick

Travelling alone often makes me homesick, longing for Australia. Not any Australia of course, to be precise, my Australia, my rural Australia in Glenburn and its surroundings.

In case it happens. I usually listen to the songs of one of my favourite Australian bands: The Waifs. They are not from Victoria but Perth, WA, but the feelings are very similar.

“Sun, dirt, water” was just the right song today. Life is so beautiful.

Here are the lyrics:

sundirtwater

would you trade me for all the pretty girls
all the ones who came before
who left you broken hearted
with your back up against the wall
would you cash in all your high times
for some lasting company
or a warm soft breast for you to lay your head on
for all of eternity

if you’re holding out for something
just reach and we’ll rise above
give me sun, give me dirt, give me water
give me sweet everlasting love

would you travel right across the world
to meet a woman that you didn’t know
if you thought that she might be the one
to put your roots down with and grow
would you take her hand and walk with her
through the narrow gate of life
gather your load, prepare to travel the road
that’s gonna lead you from trouble and strife

if you’re holding out for something
just reach and we’ll rise above
give me sun, give me dirt, give me water
give me sweet everlasting love
