From the recording Heading Back To You

It’s a long way to Tipperary
So they say I’ll be coming home
A wealth of dreams fade to grey
But with your last wave will you take me anyway?

A pound for the empire
A shilling for our love
In the legend of a nation

They need me, though you need me too
It’s a story for the big bands
The sand and sweat slowly wipes away a sweet sepia embrace
In the legend of a nation

I have a letter written in my heart
That the lightest horsemen couldn’t carry
Are you working at the Swallow & Ariel
Baking Anzacs for our return?

But God bless that little child
For he’s the bravest man alive
I’ll salute him on the day
