I LOVE THE WORLD I'M IN

Eleven Songs
Eleven Songs
(2008)
Jacaranda's blooming still
Jasmine's on the road
Sweet cicada's evening song
Is everywhere I go
They're rowing out from Coogee
There's yoga by the shore
There's 5-a-side on the oval grass
Could you ask for more?

I love the world I'm in
I love her just the way she is

Sometimes I look at the kids
And think of things we've done
I hope and pray in a week or two
The rains are going to come
When the water comes, the earth is green
And softer to my touch
The scent is sweet and flowers smile
The way I love so much

I love the world I'm in
I love her just the way she is

Doctors' breezes cool us
In Fremantle town
I'm walking beach to beach
Until the sun goes down
Cicada's a nightowl,
She sings all night like me
I lie outside and let the moon
Make love to me

I love the world I'm in
I love her just the way she is
