Lyrics: Walkabout

Never see it coming though we’re searching, looking every day
There’s always something out there, something, gonna jump out in our way
And if I look too hard, I’ll find

It’s often in the attic, except behind the cellar door
Thought it was diplomatic when I told you that I wanted something more
And it’s gotta be out there somewhere

Chorus:

We always walk around it, we always talk right through it
It’s all we think about, but we never do nothing, nothing, it’s all that we fear
Sometimes the sky is cloudy, but then the night is clear

No time to think about the consequence, it’s too easy now, too quick to put it down
We leave it in the strictest confidence, should have known by now

We face it in the mirror, we saw it way back at the start
It’s always one thing or another gonna make it all fall apart
And it may just be too late

You always said you couldn’t understand me, hate you had to guess
And to never cross the street behind someone who is depressed
And you know that’s one to grow on, grow on, grow on, go on

Chorus:

We always walk around it, we always talk right through it
Too much to think about, and so we never ever do it
Till flash goes the light then it’s all gone, got sent down to the farm
Don’t want to jump too fast, still living in the past
We always walk about it, don’t want to walk-a-bout it
