Crusader

Mick Hanly
There's a wilderness It's a no man's land Between Alice Springs and the ocean Seventeen hundred miles of burning sand And a silken thread keeps a hold on you When the emptieness like a potion tends to fray your reason strand by strand And there's no more need for the mask your wear When the last goodbyes have been said So kiss the cheeks of you dearest friends And turn to the desert ahead Now you're on your own like a sailing ship You're the captain, crew and sailors Turn around and this is what you see Chorus This me facing me all alone 'Cause I choose to be with the wind and the sun on me only me Now you dream so much about being lost Your ghost by a coolebah sleeping Haunts you and whispers in your ear Give up give up this lonely road No one knows the promise you're keeping You can't touch the emptiness out here But the grace that mends this broken wing The blue sky to regain Will lift those feet and raise those eyes To face the desert again As the dawn reveals the journey's end In truth it's only beginning And it's as big as your eyes wish to see Chorus
