Dominion Road
The Mutton Birds Lyrics


Dominion Road is bending,
Under it's own weight,
Shining like a strip
Cut from a sheet metal plate,
Cause it's just been raining.

Jane had reached the point when she knew
What he meant before he'd opened his mouth,
He couldn't say the same,
Or he'd have guessed she was moving south,
With one of his friends.

But it's getting better now.
He found it in him to forgive.
He walked the city,
And he found a place to live,
In a half-way house,
Half-way down Dominion Road.

When he watched Jane's brother sell the house,
He felt no sense of loss,
More like a mountain climber,
Looking back, having made it across
The steepest face.

And he's still climbing,
See him trying to cross the street,
He tests his footing,
Like he was up ten thousand feet,
Above the clouds,
Half-way down Dominion Road.

But it's getting better now,
He rests his head on the window sill,
He watches the city,
He can see the antennas in the hills
From the half-way house,
Half-way down Dominion Road,
Half-way down,
Half-way down,
Half-way down Dominion Road.

Dominion Road is bending
Under its own weight
Shining like a strip
Cut from a sheet metal plate
'Cause it's just been raining
Jane even reached the point where she knew
What he meant before he opened his mouth
He couldn't say the same
Or he'd have guessed she was moving south
With one of his friends
But he's getting better now
He found it in him to forgive
He walked the city
And he found a place to live
In a halfway house
Halfway down Dominion Road
And he watched Jane's brother sell the house -
He felt no sense of loss
More like a mountain climber
Looking back having made it across
The steepest phase
Oh, but he's still climbing
See him trying to cross the street
He tests his footing
Like he was up ten thousand feet
Above the the clouds
Halfway down Dominion Road
But he's getting better now
He rests his head on the window sill
He watches the city
See the antennas in the hills
From a halfway house
Halfway down Dominion Road
Halfway Down
Halfway Down
Halfway Down Dominion Road
Halfway Down
Halfway Down
Halfway Down Dominion Road
