The Journey (Gallipoli)

Written By: Ron Baker

The Journey (Gallipolli) - Ron Baker 2006

Boat nearing the shoreline
See the flashlights gleam
Travelled half a world to get there
It's a symbol of a dream
Standing there in the cold
Tears gently start to flow
Just how did they feel
How can we know

What it's like to be a hero
When you're only seventeen
The creator of a legend
The protector of a dream

The reasons are so simple
All for you he gave so much
The child he never new
The hand he'd never touch
Place the flowers on the gravestone
And slowly walk away
Maybe there will be a place and time
Where you will meet someday, and ask him

What it's like to be a hero
When you're only seventeen
The creator of a legend
The protector of a dream

As the shadows disappear
And the mist is swept away
You feel a sorrow in your heart
More than any words can say
But read the message in the stone
As the sunlight starts to play
To the children of tomorrow
From the child of yesterday

You shouldn't have to be a hero
When you're only seventeen
The creator of a legend
The protector of a dream
You don't have to be a hero
When you're only seventeen
So just believe in the future
And follow your dreams

Amelia - R. Baker 30/7/2006

Ocean of blue, shimmering dawn sunshine
Empty view, still running down the line
Can you hear me calling, I hear no reply
I just need to find you on the ocean where you lie
Endless sea
Empty sky
How the sunlight burns my eyes

All alone in the empty air
A blinding path of light below but I can't see you there
Fuel is running low and I think the radios dead
The two words on the wire service message read
Amelia's missing, Amelia's missing

Engines stall, emptiness and fear
Still we call, why can no-one hear
Can you hear me calling, I hear no reply
Are you listening for my engines up in the clear blue sky
Endless sea
Empty sky
And the tears just burn my eyes

All my life I just lived to fly
In my world above the clouds up in the clear blue sky
Wait to see what tomorrow brings
Think I'll be flying through the sky on an angels wings

Where the sorrow of the ocean blue
Meets the sadness of the sky we'll remember you
Time has gone now there is no doubt
Around the waking world the sad news goes out
Amelia's missing, Amelia's missing
Amelia's missing, Amelia's missing
