lyrics

So many times he's walked along this most ordinary road
The memories that she left him with placed a fire burning on his load
She seemed a bit distracted, the nights were much too calm
And now he's realised much too late that there ain't nobody home
And she's gone

She walked into the living room, she stared down cold upon the ground
With a look that said a thousand things and all of them were bad
He trashed the room they lived in, the trashing made him feel quite good
It was the fury of the argument he just never understood
And she's gone
Where's she heading to

She's traveling 'long the road without me
And I'm all done with waiting for some dream to come back now
and that road is long, you can wander every day
Wonder every day of your life

He wipes the dust out of his hair, the glitter from his eyes
I guess there comes a turning point where grief turns to despise
He trashed the room they lived in, the trashing made him feel quite good
It was the fury of the argument he just never understood
And she's gone
Where's she heading to

She's traveling 'long the road without me
And I've been told so many times that if you walk until you drop
you'll find the Great Inland Sea
And that road is long
You can wander every day,
Wonder every day of your life.

about

Not Drowning, Waving Melbourne, Australia

NDW's music was haunting, evocative, brooding, sensuous and a million other words that excite people who type for a living. In record stores, you could usually find NDW filed under ambient or art-rock, ill-fitting labels if ever there were. Though they were often minimalist, they never made background music. Arty by comparison to other acts of the era, but they knocked out some glorious pop tunes. ... more
