about

A little taste of camping out under the stars at Gordon's Country on the edge of the Great Dividing Range in the hinterland of Brisbane, Australia - A beautiful place to all be kids for a while, as my demons slept beneath the river stones...

lyrics

Gordon's Country

We drove for just an hour or so to where the gap in the hills is wide.
A steep old climb before the kingdom's mine for a moment or two.
Now, in this place beneath a billion, trillion stars
I'm finding answers to so many asks.
And while my demons sleep beneath the river stones.
I sit beside the fire, just like we do back home.
But the mantlepiece is the mountain rising high
And the living room is the endless, inky sky.

And how I yearn, yearn, yearn, yearn, yearn
For those warm-heart cuddles and kiddie troubles like it was back then.
And how they learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
Watching amber faces in the fire-glow
Really nothing else we need to know just now.

Take it with you and your children from this night.
Marshmallows and their sticky-faced delight
While their Daddies play at being timber men -
Leave their city jobs for chopping logs and help the children build a den

And how I yearn, yearn, yearn, yearn, yearn.
For those warm-heart cuddles and kiddie troubles like it was back then.
And how they learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
Watching amber faces in the fire-glow
Really nothing else I need to know just now...
