the straits of gibraltar (Steve Towson) i'm waiting to receive a confirmation so i can live with you but something is wrong something is broken my message it ain't getting through so i pull these lips up to the receiver but there's no connection there and all of the while the cycle continues to spiral to despair oh but the straits of gibraltar keeps on calling me to cross the straits of gibraltar my hopes lies beyond those rocks life and death fear and security all depend upon that sea as the sands of chance keep on rising filling up the best of me ice white moons keep on moving casting shadows down in the path of the range of waves that i keep on climbing how long can this treatment last how long can the treatment last how long can i last the straits of gibraltar keeps on calling me to cross the straits of gibraltar my hopes lies beyond those rocks

a love like water (Steve Towson) i drink in your beauty and i bathe in your words but that is not enough to satisfy the thirst the desire the longing to be alone for that is just the way that evolution goes a love like water seeping through my hands a love like water beyond my command i know i shouldnt want you but theres something infectious in a smile that keeps me wanting safe harbourage to anchor for a while so i step into the cyclone of a love to plant myself the seed in the hope it might mature in time to shelter me from a love like water seeping through my hands a love like water beyond my command and as i build my home in the middle of the ocean water mixes with my mortar bricks they get swept away taking all my foundations a love like water seeping through my hands a love like water beyond my command

these feet of lead (Steve Towson) temptation to lay here all day from the sun going up to when it slips away has got me yes its got me by the head and i just want to lay here and watch it all go for these feet of lead keep me here in bed yes these feet of lead keep me here in bed they say it is wise to let sleeping dogs lie if you make me move i will show you exactly why these feet of lead keep me here in bed yes these feet of lead keep me here in bed the drowning dusk it cries gasping for its last breath the temperature takes a dive as we slide into twilight well hello moonlight i see you're here again i just cant tell if you're foe or a friend

winds over meandarra (Steve Towson) and when the winds wash over my meandarra i know i shall be free for the darkness of your skies the brightness of your lights shining down from the heavens onto me for they said if you want to be a man you must head to the city get some cash in your hands for thats where humanity is they say but when i got into town all the businesses they were closing down heading overseas to where the cheaper labour is for when the winds wash over my meandarra i know i shall be free for i remember the silent nights wind licks my body in its flight heading from the east to its haven in the west but here i lie in this lifeless bed with your thoughts fill me with dread to think i left you oh so long ago for when the winds wash over my meandarra i know i shall be free for if you are over in my meandarra wont you give my love to her
