A LITTLE FURTHER NORTH
(Graeme Connors)

The sun sinks behind me in the west
This is the time of day I love best
Salt breezes murmur through the coconut palm
As the colours change, they set a scene of tropic calm

Seagulls heading back to land
Over the mangroves and salt pans
By a lazy creek with a six-pack and a fishing line
Winning back some memories and losing track of time

I head a little further north each year
Leave the cities behind
Out of sight, out of mind
Up where my troubles can all disappear
I head a little further north each year

Feeling the night wrap around me
Eases my mind in serenity
Ocean waves are humming on the outer reef
These balmy nights and sultry days are a welcome relief

I head a little further north each year
Leave the cities behind
Out of sight, out of mind
Up where my troubles can all disappear

I head a little further north each year
Taking my mind to an easier time
Up where there's silence and the night sky is clear
I head a little further north each year

A little further north each year [repeated]
