Lyrics

HALF A PLANET AWAY
By Dana Lyons

And I’m sitting in the shade of gum trees
And I look and find myself alone
On the banks of a desert river
Half a planet away from home

In the water I see reflections
Of a sunburnt and tired face
In the eyes I see recollections

But the wind comes across the water
And I look and find myself alone
My feet dangling in a desert river
Half a planet away from home

But the water is cool and soothing
Like your hands running through my hair
Like the current of the river moving

So I dive into the muddy waters
And I look and find myself alone
Floating downstream on a desert river
Half a planet away from home

But the river will take me somewhere
And I dream it brings me to you
And we float for awhile together

But the current of the river changes
And I look and find myself alone
Floating downstream on a desert river
Half a planet away from home

But I know that I’ll meet you somewhere
As the river flows to the sea
Once again we will float together

Till the current of the river changes
And I look and find myself alone
On the banks of a desert river
Half a planet away from home
