Track Name: northsoutheastwest
Once I could go for a walk and just trust
That my feet would take me where I wanted to go
And I didn’t have to think
That they might have their own bright ideas of where I should be going
Or not going.

But these days I wake up and never can be sure
If the feet at the end of the bed
Will be muddy and cracked
Or fresh as a lily
When I meant to walk them raw

What will I do with you?
What will I do without you?

Well we can’t go on
No we can’t leave this place
And we can’t turn left
And we can’t turn right
And we can’t go on
My love and I

What will I do with you?
What will I do without you?

What is this place we’ve come to?
And what is it we’ve left behind?

Now North, South, East, West
Are all dead to our scents
And the reaper whispers sweet and low
“Well, you never could have guessed
Never could have guessed
How long it took to get here
Or how far you’ve got to go”

What will I do with you?
What will I do without you?

What will we do?
What can we do?
Track Name: Modern Day Ole Fashion Man (live)
I'm an Australian man
If I have a reputation
I'll disprove it if I can
I'm real good at good
But you should see my bad
As hot as yo mumma
And as cool as... your dad...

I'll give you all
All that I can
I'll be your modern day ole fashion man...

I'll take you in the morning
And of course I can't leave you alone at night
I'll give you flowers every time that you lose a fight
Yes, I am a smart-arse
This I cannot hide
But I'll let you see me
I will let you see inside...

Repeat Chorus

I may not have claim on all of your time
But while I do
I want the world to know that you're mine
Because I can open jars
I'll give you jackets when you're cold
I'll give you good times
And a hand to hold...

Repeat Chorus X 3
