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……

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

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

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

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?

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
