about

Island nights is a rocking escape song of the Angels/Midnight Oil type. The song is all about travelling the King Island coast on the run, trying to clear your head with no particular particular place to go. You end up on the way home at daylight and realise its actually been a blast!

lyrics

ISLAND NIGHTS
The town sits in the hill behind the harbour and the bay.
The roaring forties roam the streets and the alleyways
The beach sand has all been washed away
Rocks line the shore where there were no obstacles before
The home and the acreage lie further on
Where the windmill turns in the summer sun
The grass is grey that was once green
The stock and the wildlife are all lean
Water no longer runs in the stream

On those coastal tracks, on those Island nights
I get so tired of driving, I get so tired of fighting
On those coastal tracks, on those King Island nights
The full moon and tide make the ocean sing,
ain't love a curious thing?

Hammock rolling idly in the sun
Waiting to be filled by anyone
The dust from the truck well it clouds the view
From the empty porch that knew the youth
From the innocent eyes that hid the truth

On those coastal tracks, on those Island nights
I get so tired of driving I get so tired of fighting
On those coastal tracks, on those King Island nights
Headlights break the dawn on the coastal scrub,
Morning times the time for moving on....
