lyrics

Who would have known that on that night
your gaze would meet my stare
or that I would ever have the chance
to touch your dampened hair
that you would notice one so plain
amongst a crowd so fair
God bless the heart that takes the risk
in playing midnight truth or dare

cuz you may be down under
but I’m just down
it’s the strangest feeling
when you’re not around

whisper like a willow
but don’t make a sound
send my senses reeling
feet not feeling solid ground

The ocean separates us so
we’re aqua miles away
and selfishness does threaten me
to beg you please to stay

but chance is that which dealt the deck
of cards played from above
and I will settle for a friend
if you can’t be my love

cuz you may be down under
but I’m just down
it’s the strangest feeling
when you’re not around

whisper like a willow
but don’t make a sound
send my senses reeling
feet not feeling solid ground

(lead break)

cuz you may be down under
but I’m just down
it’s the strangest feeling
when you’re not around

whisper like a willow
but don’t make a sound
send my senses reeling
feet not feeling solid ground

and if I’m living in a dream
I pray the dream won’t crack
for in that dream my thoughts can bet
the boys from melbourne will be back
will be back …
you better go and pack …
but promise me you will be back.

download instructions

    If you have QuickTime Pro, you can select to save the MP3 from the pop up menu.

    You may be able to directly download the MP3 through this link: download now. If the browser reports that it doesn’t know the MIME type, go ahead and download it — you will get the full MP3. If the browser brings up QuickTime, then try the next step.

    As a final method, we have instructed your browser to keep a copy of the MP3 in its cache. That copy will be there only as long as this web page is loaded. Wait until the full song has downloaded to your browser, then go into the browser cache and search for the song (on a Macintosh, the browser cache will be located in the System Folder --> Preferences --> Netscape Users --> your user name --> Cache ƒ). This will only work for Netscape Communicator or Navigator; Microsoft Internet Explorer uses a proprietary anti-social cache that doesn’t allow direct user access) The song will be listed under a strange name (something like cache416991.mp3) — locate it by searching for something with an MP3 file extension. Now, copy (not move) the file from the cache to the desktop (soon after you close this web page, the copy in the cache will be removed) and rename it something meaningful like torch.mp3.
