about

Recorded in 2003. We had moved to Australia and the topic was obvious.

This was my whingey, I-can't-believe-we're-in-the-southern-hemisphere-for-christmas song. Beautiful guitar by Magnus.

lyrics

______________________________________________

I can’t believe we’re so far away
And it’s just me and you
It doesn’t feel quite like December
It’s all strange and new

And I wonder if Santa Makes It down

I can’t believe the autumn browns
In the heavy sun
Invites to barbecues
When the cricket’s down

And I wonder if Santa Makes It down
To Australia - isn’t it far way
To Australia - won’t he melt on the way

I can’t believe we’re down on the beach
Pouring on sunscreen
Making frosty out of the sand
I want to go home

And I wonder if Santa Makes It down
To Australia - isn’t it far way
To Australia
