No Second Chance

Written By: Katherine Hall

No Second Chance (© Katherine Hall 2006)

No second chance, if you don’t take the one you’re given
This train will pass, and there won’t be another

So seize the day, while it’s called today
Don’t give away the things that could become
‘Cause this may never come around again

Don’t you think twice, when you step on that crack in the pavement
Life’s half as nice when you live with too much caution

So live today, while it’s called today
Don’t give away the things that could become
‘Cause this may never come around again

No second chance
No second chance
No second chance
No second chance

The North Wind

The North Wind (© Katherine Hall 2006)

The North wind blows, the South replies
The leaves don’t know which way to go
Caught up on a whim they fly
They circle ‘round and then come floating down in a new place

And the North wind blows…
La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da

The South wind blows, I feel the cold
I feel it lick my skin, and rattle through my bones
It finds the cracks around the door
It makes an eerie sound as it creeps across the floor

Then the North wind blows…
La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da

And when it blows, it blows, and where it goes
Not a soul can tell
And if you have a mind to try and find
Where it starts, you’ll be looking hard

The winds they blow from end to end
They pick up troubles then turn around, and bring them back again
‘Cause troubles can’t be taken far
They’ll always find a way to get back where you are

Still the North wind blows…
La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da

We’re all leaves on the wind

Twenty-Five Years

Written By: Katherine Hall

Twenty-Five Years (© Katherine Hall 2006)

In Winter 1855, just near Glenrowan town
A woman smiled, she heard the cry her newborn son had found
But little did she know the turn the hands of fate had wrung
And death replace her husband with son
Ten-and-one years on

His childhood over now, the boy too quickly had to grow
He saved a mate from drowning where the river darkly flows
And Harry Power knew he’d found a man in that small frame
So he took him on and taught him how to play
The bushranger game

Well, he learned to ride a horse and how to steal and how to fight
He won a twenty-round bare-knuckled boxing match with Wild Wright
And when the man Fitzpatrick came to take his kin away
He fought and won, but then he fled
To the bush to stay

Four coppers came on horseback to the camp where he had run
But Ned and Dan and Steve and Joe were handy with their guns
They shot three dead the sky was blood red with the dawn
The fourth escaped and spread the news
The Kelly Gang was born

Twenty-five years young
When the leader of the Kelly Gang was hung
The judge said, “Son, I’ll see you on the gallows”
Ned replied, “Sir, I’ll meet you where I go”.

The gang approached Glenrowan and laid siege upon the inn
They held the people hostage in their armour made from tin
But coppers’ bullets found their weakness, and the building all aflame
Spelled the closing chapter of their lives
But their tale remains

Twenty-five years young
When the leader of the Kelly Gang was hung
The judge said, “Son, I’ll see you on the gallows”
Ned replied, “Sir, I’ll meet you where I go”.
