Track Name: Bonfire
Bonfire (Tr 1) Julitha RYAN The Winter Journey
Nothing between me and death / There’s only the cold empty air
And the signs are everywhere / The sad future is already here
All the paintings of flying birds, all the words better left unheard
All the books I’ll never read, all the memories I’ll never need
I’ve chased the storm unceasingly, and now I’m in the eye
I’m tired of all and everything I’m getting ready to die

I’m gonna build a bonfire Of everything I know I know
I don’t know anything but I know that there must be a better way
I know – I’m gonna build a bonfire – of everything I know, I know
I don’t know anything but I know that there must be a brighter day
There’s so many things I can never unsee

Waiter please! I’m dying for a drink And I’m drinking to die
All of the madness and misery Is just making me cry

I’m gonna build a bonfire Of everything I know! I know
I know – I’m gonna build a bonfire – of everything I know, I know
I’m gonna build a bonfire and watch it all go Go….
go, I know ‘cos I’m not gonna need it
when I go, and where I go, I know I’m gonna build a bonfire
of everything I know
‘cos I’m not going to need a key, a sleeping bag, a horse,
I won’t need anything of course
‘cos it’s all gotta go! I know……
Track Name: Like A Jail
Like A Jail (Tr 2) Julitha RYAN The Winter Journey
YOU GOTTA THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE DOING
DON’T JUST SIT AND WAIT - SIT AND WAIT
UNTIL IT ALL BLOWS UP IN YOUR FACE

AND I’M TRYING TO SEIZE THE DAY BUT ANYWAY I’M LOSING YEARS
LIKE A JAIL, LIKE A JAIL

AND THE DAY IT’S FAST APPROACHING
WHEN WE ALL DROWN IN THE END OF TIME
IT’S TIME TO PULL OUT THE BIG GUNS
COS YOU’VE GOT NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE

BUT IT’S SURE TAKING SUCH A LONG TIME
TO LEARN TO STAY AWAY FROM LOVE
LOOK UP AT THE MOUNTAINS UP AHEAD,
LOOK AT THE SKIES UP ABOVE
LIKE A JAIL, LIKE A JAIL

WHO’S SHOT
You ain’t just broken my heart you broke it hundreds of times
WHO’S HOT but baby here I am all down the line

YOU GOTTA DREAM ABOUT THAT UMBRELLA
BEFORE IT RAINS BEFORE IT RAINS
BEEN STANDING ON SHAKY GROUND SO LONG
I’M WILLING I’M READY TO SET SAIL

AND IT’S SURE TAKING SUCH A LONG TIME
TO LEARN TO STAY AWAY FROM LOVE
LOOK UP AT THE MOUNTAINS UP AHEAD,
LOOK AT THE DAMN SKY UP ABOVE
UP ABOVE – THAT’S LOVE. THAT’S LOVE
Track Name: Woman Walks Her Cat
Woman Walks Her Cat (Tr 3) Composer – Norm Fagg
Julitha RYAN The Winter Journey

CLIMB INTO MY OPEN WINDOW LEAVE YOUR WEAPONS BY THE DOOR
DON’T YOU WORRY IT’S NOT OVER LAY YOUR HEART OUT ON THE FLOOR

AND THE WOMAN WALKS HER CAT AND THE CAT IT WEARS A HAT
AND THE WOMAN IS A LITTLE TOO FAT
BUT SHE ALWAYS STOPS TO HAVE A CHAT
AND THE MEMORIES OF HIS LIES SIT IN THE CORNER OF HER EYES
AND THE ONLY TIME SHE CRIES
IS WHEN SHE CAN’T REMEMBER THE COLOUR OF HIS EYES

AND THE NIGHT IS DARK AND SILKY
THE CANDLE BREATHES ITS FINAL BREATH
AND THE TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGING
AS THE CANDLE FADES AWAY

AND THE WOMAN WALKS HER CAT AND THE CAT IT WEARS A HAT
AND THE WOMAN IS A LITTLE TOO FAT
BUT SHE ALWAYS STOPS TO HAVE A CHAT
AND THE MEMORIES OF HIS LIES SIT IN THE CORNER OF HER EYES
AND THE ONLY TIME SHE CRIES
IS WHEN SHE CAN’T REMEMBER THE COLOUR OF HIS EYES

AS HE WALKS AWAY HE CRIES
BECAUSE SHE FILLS HIS MIND WITH LIES
AND AS HE WALKS AWAY SHE CRIES
BECAUSE THEY’VE LOST THE STRENGTH TO SAY GOODBYE

E mentre si allontana piange
Perché lei riempie la sua mente con le bugie
E mentre si allontana piange
Perché non hanno più la forza per dire addio
Addio caro
Track Name: Something's Gotta Give
Something’s Gotta Give (Tr 5) Julitha RYAN The Winter Journey

When did the end begin
between my heart and skin
Now all is lost, I welcome it in
Something’s gotta give

Something bad is coming, something bad has walked into my room
I can feel it’s eyes upon me measuring my tomb……Soon

Something’s gotta give
Something’s gotta give

Who do I pray to now, that everything has gone?
Oh I hear the drums now still leading me on
Sun going down in your eyes, I saw it happen at the speed of light
A war is war as long as the warriors fight

Something bad is coming, something bad is happening soon
How can I escape this – this eternal gloom ?
Something bad is happening, happening soon

Something’s gotta give
Something’s gotta give
Track Name: Zeehan
Zeehan (Tr 6) Julitha RYAN The Winter Journey

(Far) away south on an island over mountain and snow
Lies a small town called Zeehan where the clocks all run slow
In the Zeehan midnight our feet break every rule
The world is so far away, as far away as the moon
Under the Zeehan streetlight stand two lovers alone
Learning love in the cold light they have words of their own
In the Zeehan midnight love comes to an end too soon
And the world is so far away as far as the moon
Take me back to that old mining town
Cos I left my heart there
Where the Coke machine is broken and
The church is stripped bare

In the Zeehan moonlight we sang songs in the dark
Telling jokes by the roadside finding love in our hearts
In the Zeehan midnight we sing the old familiar tunes
And the world is so far away, as far away as the moon

Yes I danced with Caruso when the bandstand was there
When the summers were golden and the credit was fair
In the cold Zeehan light love comes to an end, an end too soon
And the world is so far away as far away as the moon

Forever I’ll hear your organ play
Forever I’ll keep the key
I look back as I drive away and I know I am free
I look back as I drive away and I know I’m still there
Track Name: Big Brass Bell
Big Brass Bell (Tr 7) Julitha RYAN The Winter Journey

OH WELL THE BIG BRASS BELL ROLLS FROM HIP TO HIP
& NO YOU NEVER CAN TELL AT WHICH MOMENT YOU WILL TRIP
FROM SOMEWHERE DEEP IN THE MOUNTAINS COMES THE UNMISTAKEABLE CRY
AND AS CLEAR AS A BELL IT’S TELLING YOU THE TIME

WHEN YOU KNOW THE STORM YOU CAN’T STAND THE CALM
WHEN YOU HEAR THE DRUMS YOU SPEED IN YOUR CAR
AND IT’S MUCH TOO LATE TO CHANGE WHO YOU ARE

WATCH ME NOW AS I HANG UP MY SHIELD
WATCH ME NOW AS I PUT DOWN MY BEER
I’T’S TIME TO GO HOME I’VE HAD ENOUGH
AND NO I DO NOT KNOW THE SCORE!
‘COS WHEN THE MEANINGLESS BEGINS
IT DOESN’T MATTER ANY MORE

AND IT’S MUCH TOO LATE TO FOLLOW ME HOME
I’M MAKING MY DREAMS AT HOME ALL ALONE
AND IT’S MUCH TOO LATE I’M MOVING ALONG
IT SEEMS SUCH A SHAME I CAN’T LOVE EVERYONE
3-2-1 AND NOW I’M GONE - OOOH I’M GONE….

WELL IT’S AN AWESOME AND BEAUTIFUL, BROKEN WORLD
AND YOU FLOAT ABOVE IT ALL – SAIL ON! YOU SWEET SAD BIRD
BUT STILL I KNOW THESE ARE WORDS I NEVER SAID
WHY, WHY, WHY DID I WAIT?
WHEN IT WAS GOING AROUND IN MY HEAD

NOW IT’S MUCH TOO LATE TO CHANGE ANYTHING
THE HOUR IS LATE, THE HOUR WE SING
AND IT’S MUCH TOO LATE IT’S ALL BEEN AND GONE
IT SEEMS SUCH A SHAME I CAN’T LOVE EVERYONE
3-2-1 MY TIME HAS RUN
Track Name: There Is No Turning Back
There Is No Turning Back (Tr 8) Julitha RYAN The Winter Journey

Well the moment has come, and it’s coming like a wave
So strap yourselves right in and choose who you’re going to save
The blue light and I stare into each other’s eye
There’s no way to hide who and where and why – and why
The blue light and I stare into each other’s eye
The skies are kind of black, there is no turning back
There is no turning back
There’s no way to hide who and where and why
There’s no end in sight as we speed in the night
The sky is kind of black, there is no turning back
There is no turning back
Winter journeys can be made on summer days
Crossing the dark meridian you lose a day
You lose your way
There is no – turning back
Well the moment has arrived, it’s coming like a wave
So strap yourselves right in and choose who you’re going to save
The blue light and I stare into each other’s minds
Goodbye to all of that cos there is no turning back.
There is no turning back
