Lyrics

Time To Get Back Home

Written By: David O'Connor


City flickers in the distance
Landing lights on Botany Bay
Curfew puts up some resistance
Not enough to worry me

Runway runs out long and lonely
That’s the way it’s supposed to be
Feeling warm and kind of homely
Family I’m about to see

Chorus:
In this age of discontent
More to life than paying rent
Looking puzzled, all I meant
Time to get back home

Crowded hall of smiling faces
Seeking out the one for me
Intercity belt and braces
Rushing where they have to be

Chorus:
In this age of discontent
Don’t believe that works a friend
Looking troubled, say again
Time to get back home

Harbour flickers into daylight
Bridge and brother Sydney smile
Catching up whatever we like
Think it take a little while

Chorus:
In this age of discontent
Think I’m finally on the scent
More to life than paying rent
Time to get back home
Get yourself back home

Get Back Home

Written By: David O'Connor

City flickers in the distance
Landing lights on Botany Bay
Curfew puts up some resistance
Not enough to worry me

Runway runs out long and lonely
That’s the way it’s supposed to be
Feeling warm and kind of homely
Family I’m about to see

Chorus:
In this age of discontent
More to life than paying rent
Looking puzzled, all I meant
Time to get back home

Crowded hall of smiling faces
Seeking out the one for me
Intercity belt and braces
Rushing where they have to be

Chorus:
In this age of discontent
Don’t believe that works a friend
Looking troubled, say again
Time to get back home

Harbour flickers into daylight
Bridge and brother Sydney smile
Catching up whatever we like

Chorus:
In this age of discontent
Think I’m finally on the scent
More to life than paying rent
Time to get back home
Get yourself back home

Back In New South Wales

Written By: David O'Connor

Manangatang, almost there
Can’t you taste it in the air
Close to home
Back in New South Wales

Coolangatta into Tweed
Everything you’ll ever need
Paradise
Back in New South Wales

Chorus:
Sydney’s game if you’re the same
Orange people on the plain
In Eden’s garden eucalypts abound
Forever sunshine making Hay
Broken hills at close of day
Dusty dreamtime feet on hallowed ground

Wodonga fades as Albury shines
No longer someone marking time
Kiss the ground
I’m back in New South Wales

Bridge:
Sun on sails, all else pales
When you’re back in New South Wales

Mildura mourning our goodbyes
Lost across the bridge of sighs
Ahhhhhh! Back in New South Wales
Ahhhhhh! Back in New South Wales
