    Back of Beyond

    I tried to write you a few short lines
    but the friarbird it sang too loud
    and my mind it held the song /

    I looked to Heaven for some signs
    forming shapes inside the clouds
    but all l could see was the Back of Beyond.

    I walked the road to Katmandu
    to watch the mountain touch the sky
    but the trek seemed way too long /

    I lost the will but saw the view
    although I forgot the reason why
    and it looked just like the Back of Beyond.

    I tried to learn some Madarin
    but my mouth it would not speak
    and the words all came out foreign /

    I poured myself a tenth of gin
    and pondered on a new technique
    but it sounded a lot like the Back of Beyond.

    I watched the Mona Lisa watching me
    it was like her eyes never left my face
    and her stare seemed quite prolonged /

    I whispered shoosh now let me be
    my heart rests not here but in another place
    so now I'm heading home to the Back of Beyond.
