Accordion-fired folk-pop ditty celebrating endurance and making your own mind up.

lyrics

Sweetheart where’s the limit
Call on spirits for protection
Saints and curses too
A plan to get us back home
Safe and sound where
All our faith is grounded
Wrapped in brick and air and steel and song

You can push us down but
Always we will remain
Over the hills and back again

No direction home we’re
Out-paced the fuse is blown we’re
Drinking to hide the signs of thinking
And smiling makes my teeth ache
Chasing dreams of heartbreak
No-one told me to take
Notice of the background hum

You can push us down but
Always we will remain
Over the hills and back again
Take a running jump cos
All this is is a game
Over the hills and back again

Sweetheart how does it follow
All our big tomorrows
Line up and never come they
Wait for the starting gun and
Daybreak is hours away and
All we gain are paper chains
And trust the rest will follow on

You can push us down but
Always we will remain
Over the hills and back again
Take a running jump cos
All this is is a chain
Over the hills and back again
