lyrics

twilight
it's time
to put the horses to bed
the breeze
rolling down the hillside
sets the leaves slapping
and the bats flapping away

dog paddling
across the dam
chasing the ducks away
smoke spilling
from the neighbour's house
the cold descends rapidly today

so come along now
let's brush you down
and i will lay a blanket on your back
a palm on your forehead and say
goodnight

the endless fence
disappearing, unfinished
into the scrub around the back
i know, i can see
i'll have to let it go
before this place
gets too big for me

so come along now
let's brush you down
and i will lay a blanket on your back
a palm on your forehead and say
goodnight

goodnight, goodbye
