Sounds Of Then Lyrics

musician: Gangajang

I think I hear the sounds of then,
And people talking,
The scenes recalled, by minute movement,
And songs they fall, from the backing tape.
That certain texture, that certain smell,

To lie in sweat, on familiar sheets,
In brick veneer on financed beds.
In a room, of silent hardiflex
That certain texture, that certain smell,

Brings home the heavy days,
Brings home the night time swell,

Out on the patio we’d sit,
And the humidity we’d breathe,
We’d watch the lightning crack over canefields
Laugh and think, this is Australia.

The block is awkward – it faces west,
Long diagonals, and sloping too.
And in the distance, through the heat haze,
In convoys of silence the cattle graze.

That certain texture, that certain beat,
Brings forth the night time heat.

Out on the patio we’d sit,
And the humidity we’d breathe,
We’d watch the lightning crack over canefields
Laugh and think that this is Australia.

To lie in sweat, on familiar sheets,
In brick veneer on financed beds.
In a room of silent hardiflex
That certain texture, that certain smell,

Brings forth the heavy days,
Brings forth the night time sweat

Out on the patio we’d sit,
And the humidity we’d breathe,
We’d watch the lightning crack over canefields
Laugh and think, this is Australia.

Out on the patio we’d sit,
And the humidity we’d breathe,
We’d watch the lightning crack over canefields
Laugh and think, this is Australia.

This is Australia, this is Australia, this is Australia…

    a very sensual piece. I’ve spent most of my life in rural America, and I don’t normally think of beauty when I think of cities, but that song and picture make me see it in a different light.

    YEEEK! That’s quite a picture! And nice lyrics, too. From a band (?) I haven’t heard of. I once saw Tommy Emmanuel play ‘Initiation’ live, which was pretty good too, but that’s a pure instrumental of course.

    cool poem. It is very cool to be able to look at lighning storms in a city. I live where I can see Lake Michigan and it is even cooler to see the storms as they pass over the lake.

    This is such a cool picture. When I was a child we lived in a high-rise with huge picture window from which I would watch the thunder-storms. I once saw a large tree struck.

    The summer lightning of southeast New Mexico is just as dramatic as the picture you shared. Also, gravy insight to your wonderous country!
