lyrics

BUSHFIRE MOON
A RED MOON ROSE OVER THE CITY TONIGHT
A RED MOON ROSE OVER THE BUSH
ITS EERIE LIGHT STRANGELY BEAUTIFUL
AT FIRST IT DIDN’T DAWN ON ME
THE TERRIBLE REALITY
I COULD ONLY WONDER AT THE SIGHT

I WATCHED IT RISE INTO THE HEAVENS TONIGHT
I WATCHED IT FADE TO DEATHLY GREY
I REALISED AS IT HIT ME TONIGHT
THAT ALL THE LESSONS WE HAD HAVE LEARNED
WENT UP IN SMOKE AS BUSHLAND BURNED

CH
BUSHFIRE MOON TELLS THE STORY
BEARING SILENT WITNESS TO THE HEARTACHE & THE PAIN
BUSHFIRE MOON IN ALL ITS GLORY
SYMBOL OF THE SPIRIT THAT WILL RISE AGAIN
ABOVE THE GLOOM, BUSHFIRE MOON

I WATCHED THE NEWS & WEPT A WEEK TONIGHT
I WATCHED THE COUNT BEGIN TO CLIMB
THE PICTURES SHOWED THE TOTAL DEVASTATION
BUT FROM THE ASHES THERE EMERGED
THE AUSSIE SPIRIT UNDETERRED
A CHILD SMILED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 5 LONG
NIGHTS

CH

MID
SO HERE’S TO BRAVE HEARTS & THE HEROES
WITH THE STRENGTH TO CARRY ON
TO STAND & FACE THE DEVIL
WHEN ALL BUT LIFE IS GONE
JUST LOCAL FOLKS & VOLUNTEERS
WHO FRONT UP EVERY DAY
TO THE LIVING HELL THAT GREETED THEM THAT SATURDAY
