lyrics

Sitting on the mountainside watching all my friends go by.
A million miles high, I can’t find my way down.
I’d grab the first plane I saw if I was allowed.
Skinny I am, but I’ve become too weighed down.

I’ve shaved my head, trying to shed,
All the ties with the people who care.

I’ve lost my job and I have lost myself too.
There’s a wolf at my window and he’s watching my every move.
I’m petrified, I’m scared, I don’t think I can move.
So I sleep at light and at night stay awake in this room.

I’ve sold my things, for needles and pins, to escape from it all.
Well I don’t know when I’ll come back home.

Sitting on the mountainside, all my friends have now gone away.
Got a job, made flight but here I stay.
I waited for something, someone to show me the way.
But I’ve laid down and I won’t change.

A poison called, I inhale it all and I’m sick to death of it all.
Soon I’ll be back home.

Burralow Sydney, Australia

Burralow is an indie folk outfit fronted by two hopeless-romantic songwriters. Together they have penned and orchestrated a collection of stories from living on the road and around the Blue Mountains. The band’s timbre teeters between acoustic and electric as they swap and blend traditional folk with pop instruments throughout their set.

'Burralow' is the band's debut EP.
