The Old Melbourne is another of many great live music venues in Perth that no longer exist. Every lyric is true; missed opportunities and a mis-spent youth.


I miss you like a hangover
You paid me all the time
I was cruising around with no lights on
I never made you mine

I never made you mine
I needed one more drink
I never made you mine
Please let me take your home

Now I could barely stand
With my feet stuck to the floor
I asked you for the time too many times
I could take no more

I never made you mine
I had to run outside to throw up
I never made you mine
Please let me back inside

You’re still around but you’re gone,
You’re still around

If walls could tell a story
I’d go back there some day
To find out just what went on
To see where I went wrong

I never made you mine
I never made the call
I never made you mine
Please let me back in time

God I miss you
