lyrics

The day has finally come.
Thursday we begin our run
down to St Helens
and then out to sea.
My love I don’t want to leave

Invoke the kindest breeze,
leave like January leaves.
I hate the roll
of the salt ocean sea.
Darling I don’t want to leave

Can you hear me Patyegarang
hear me calling your name.
My head in the stars
and my heart in your hands
hear me Patyegarang

Loneliness is part of me
my life has been on the sea.
There’s no disguising
a fear in your eyes
in the way you look upon me

Your people are calling you back
Patye, don’t leave just yet.
The banks of the rivers
known only to song
and he who has lain among.

Hear me Patyegarang
hear me calling your name.
My head in the stars
and my heart in your hands
heal me Patyegarang

Hear me Patyegarang
hear me calling your name.
My head in the stars
and my heart in your hands
hear me Patyegarang
