requiem (au) – tropical low lyrics

Loading...

[intro]
a tropical low is forming off the coast of darwin in the arafura sea. residents are being advised to stay indoors unless absolutely necessary

[verse 1: requiem]
four years in feelin’ like a territorian
ridin’ ‘round darwin, tailgate in my delorean
back to the future, livin’ top end days
happy i was able to stay before the city ever changed
watch the skyline poppin’ up with high rise
never guess the city would be changin’ my life
best move i ever made, i see in hindsight
sippin’ vino at dusk, ageing like a fine wine
or a mai tai, on a fly by, pale ale at night time
celebrating the prime time, actually don’t even like wine
but the right mind you might find, me toasting the troppo lifestyle
rain sideways it’s high tide, a cyclone in the pipeline

[hook: john coulehan of roymackonkey]
wind, water, waves
brace for the rain
cyclone come our way
we live the same
wind, water, waves
brace for the rain
cyclone come our way
we live the same

[verse 2: requiem]
a low coming in, dark clouds thunderin’
is this the big one? got locals wonderin’
roads blocked off, rain water floodin’ in
wait it out with water bottles and a couple gins
been years since tracy, ago felt like so long
if a low hits land, so much could go wrong
tape up louvres in a pair of broke thongs
take shelter from the storm like an old folk song
i know that i’m kinda scared
sitting duck but i’m prepared
probably nothing, i’m aware
might be big, might be rare
roof ripped off by violent air
mother nature ain’t fighting fair
fallen trees and flying chairs
silence shared, siren blares

[hook: john coulehan of roymackonkey]
wind, water, waves
brace for the rain
cyclone come our way
we live the same
wind, water, waves
brace for the rain
cyclone come our way
we live the same
