Song Description

An acoustic ballad sung from the northern hemisphere to Australia in the southern hemisphere. Births, deaths and marriages, and the memories attached to a place are what we miss when relocated to a new country.

Story Behind the Song

Written in a homesick moment. Vegemite really is Australian comfort food.

Lyrics

The stars above they are not my stars
And the faces show no trace of comprehension
They head south for the winter
Well I?d be heading north
But that was in a different place
And I?m a little off-course

Half a world away
Way down under
I wake while they sleep
Is it any wonder
That the gum trees are sad
And barely whisper
Cause like me they?d rather be
Half a world away

The water flows the other way or so I?m told
It?s getting warmer at home but here it?s cold
Camille had a child
Kasey?s engaged
Lisa was a bride
Paul passed away

But that?s half a world away
Way down under
Goes on while I?m gone
Is it any wonder
I eat Vegemite on lonely nights
And dream of mother
Cause she knows I?d rather be
Half a world away

Half a world away
