Flags and Windchimes

F C G F C G (repeat)
You finished your novel and got started on another
Now you’re heading home to look after your mother
Back to the city you forgive, for running in your veins
But as slow as your heart beats, it can’t be slower than the trains

F, C, G, Am, F
Doo doo doo…

And in my Father’s garden flags are flying
It reminds me of my life, before I knew about dying
And there’s one for QLD
One Spanish and one Australian
And judging from my reflection, my knees and my heart are likely to fail again

I used to say I would never go back
F C G Am
I used to think I was better than that
F C G Am F
My Mother’s wind chimes are ringing in the shelter
They’re louder than I remember

And walking up to 1 2 3 4 5,
The dogs among the crocuses are reminding me that I am alive
And I’m living, in an anxious hurried world
And no matter what you do, it’s never going to slow down.


from Brisbane (on Everything), released November 7, 2015
