Lyrics

Australialyrics.jpg

I don't know if I'm tired and I don't know if I'm ill
My cheeks are turning yellow
I think I'll take another pill

Praying for the wave to come now
It must be for the fifteenth time
I've been here for much too long
This is the past that's mine

I want to fly and run till it hurts
Sleep for a while and speak no words
In Australia
I want to fly and run till it hurts
Sleep for a while and speak no words
In Australia In Australia

Praying for the wave to come now
It must be for the very last time
It's twelve o'clock till midnight
There must be someone to blame

I want to fly and run till it hurts
Sleep fpr a while and speak no words
In Australia
I want to fly and run till it hurts
Sleep for a while and speak no words
In Australia
In Australia

Ahhhhh, Australia oooooohh in Australia

I want to fly and run till it hurts
Sleep for a whie and speak no words
In Australia

In Australia
In Australia
In Australia
