Lyrics

Manjaree

Written By: Helen Lorenz

V1
Sittin here upon your shore,
I think of the Whadjuk
Who lived here before.
Did they dream here?
Like I dream here?

V2
The limestone cliffs
Have stories to tell,
Of the whaleboats returning
On the South-West swell,
And the convicts,
In the Roundhouse,

Bridge:
Manjaree, Manjaree.

Guitar riff Bridge

V3
As I watch the cargo ships come in,
I find a moment
To look within,
I'm never lonely
By your still waters.

V1: Repeat

Bridge:
Manjaree, Manjaree.

CH:
Manjaree Oh Manjaree
Sunlit waters, sacred sea
Place of dreaming,
Oh hear the ancient voices calling
Manjaree oh Manjaree
Sunlit waters, sacred sea
Place of dreaming,
Oh hear the ancient voices calling
Manjaree! Manjaree!
Manjaree!
Place of dreaming,
Oh hear the ancient voices calling

Guitar outro

These 4 Walls

Written By: Hellen Lorenz

Acapella Vocals Intro

CH1
These four walls,
were closing in on me
my expectations,
were just a memory

V1
I earned a medal
for my weary heart
I didn't give in
when my world fell apart
I weighed things up,
I stood my ground,
Look What I found.

CH2
These four walls
With time,
Had grown so thin
As I realised,
That I had changed within

V2
I saw the light
In my baby's eyes
I was a part of something
So much bigger than myself
Instead of having lost
And frustrated dreams,
I made a family.

Scat solo

CH3
These four walls
Held my destiny.
A little circle,
That I brought
The best from me

V3
The change was not
The end of me
Blessed new beginnings
Are sometimes
Hard to see
A choice was made
As life demands
Sometimes you gotta trust
A stranger's open hand

Repeat V2
Acapella vocals Outro
