YOUR SHIP HAS GONE
Bridie

Your ship has gone
way out to sea
Past the volcanoes
at Talasea
This time I've missed it
One day you'll see

Well I'll wait for my ship to come back in again
And I'll wait till I'm tired and they'll say what a fool to be waiting
at a loose end
If this is the rock
At the end of the road
With no way to go past it
Then this must be home
If this time I've missed it
Then forever I'll roam

Well I'll wait for my ship to come back in again
And I'll wait till I'm tired and they'll say what a fool to be waiting
at a loose end
Look down from Mt. Warning
And wait for your ship to come in
Well there's all kinds of treasure
And your luck it will change with the wind
So be patient

I always fall over
It's just a simple thing
I lose concentration
When the social hour begins
But I'm up and I'm leaving
I'm off with the wind

Well I'll wait here in vain I've got nothing to lose
And I'll wait till I'm tired and they'll say what a fool
This ship has been gone for one hell of a while
When it goes out of sight then it goes out of style
I'll wait for my ship to come back in again
I'll wait till I'm tired then I'll wake up again
Well I'll wait here in vain I've got nothing to lose
And I'll wait till I'm tired say what a fool to be waiting

about

My Friend The Chocolate Cake Melbourne, Australia

Their name alone should have ensured a quiet life. No one dreamed of ARIA awards, two years of sold-out Edinburgh Festival dates or the kind of ageless and eternally devoted audience. Somewhere within the unlikely union of kitchen sink piano tales, vivid chamber orchestration and hell-raising instrumental shenanigans, the Melbourne band has carved out a 20 year, seven album history. ... more
