Across the Nullarbor

You got dressed and you left
Sold your possessions on the web
Cos we don’t need many things
When all the baggage is in our head

I wondered what you saw
In the girl across the Nullarbor
But she took your heart and your hand
And she stole you across this great wide land

But you know I’m gonna reach you there
You know I’m gonna find you out
And I’ll pull your heart right out of that town
You know I’m gonna reach you there
And I’ll woo your heart
And we’ll dance from shore to shore
Back across the Nullarbor

Seems there’s nothing in between
Just the stretch of the desert and one lonely tree
But in all our history
It’s got us hanging on that one fine string

But you know I’m gonna reach you there
You know I’m gonna find you out
And I’ll pull your heart right out of that town
You know I’m gonna reach you there
And I’ll woo your heart
And we’ll dance from shore to shore
Back across the Nullarbor

So I set upon my way
And I’m tripping over stones and the epiphany it came
When I came across the man amidst the dust and he said to me
“You know… you’ve gotta go home.”
“You know,” don’t I know you’ll say no

You know I thought I’d reach you there
You know I never had a doubt
I thought I’d pull your heart right out of that town
But even if I met you there
I couldn’t win your heart
Gotta turn myself around…
Back across the Nullarbor
