Icehouse - Jericho bay



Tekst piosenki:


  
   Every night, he comes home late,
  and if she's lucky he'll just pass her by
  every night, she sits and waits
  though he never thought to ask her why
  broken table in the kitchen, neighbours wake and listen
  he complains about the mess in the place
  in the morning she'll forgive him, think of any reason
  to forget about the state of her face
  
  she's got a no return ticket on an overnight train
  as it pulls away from Jericho Bay
  she leaves a sleepy town station and a simple gold ring
  as a souvenir of Jericho Bay
  
  everyday, she counted the hours
  and the weeks she counted on the wall
  everyday, just a little older
  everyday just like the one before
  she never told her mother, never told her father
  never wasted one single tear
  her secret safely hidden, no word of explanation
  she packs her bag and closes the door
  
  she's got a no return ticket on an overnight train
  as it pulls away from Jericho Bay
  she's got a secondhand suitcase, her Sunday dress on
  and a photograph of Jericho Bay
  she leaves a sleepy town station and a simple gold ring
  as a souvenir of Jericho Bay
  and she can hear the rails singing, way up to the moon
  hanging yellow over Jericho bay
  
  and she'll never be back again.
