Nostalgia
Emily Barker Lyrics


TRAM WIRES CROSS MELBOURNE SKIES
CUT MY RED HEART IN TWO
MY KNUCKLES BLEED DOWN JOHNSTON STREET
ON A DOOR THAT SHOULDN'T BE IN FRONT OF ME

TWELVE THOUSAND MILES AWAY FROM YOUR SMILE
I'M TWELVE THOUSAND MILES AWAY FROM ME
STANDING ON THE CORNER OF BRUNSWICK
GOT THE RAIN COMING DOWN AND MASCARA ON MY CHEEK
OH WHISPER ME WORDS IN THE SHAPE OF A BAY
SHELTER MY LOVE FROM THE WIND AND THE WAVES

CROW FLY BE MY ALIBI
AND RETURN THIS FABLE ON YOUR WING
TAKE IT FAR AWAY TO WHERE GYPSIES PLAY
BENEATH METAL STARS BY THE BRIDGE

OH WRITE ME A BEACON SO I KNOW THE WAY
GUIDE MY LOVE THROUGH NIGHT AND THROUGH DAY

ONLY THE SUNSET KNOWS MY BLIND DESIRE FOR THE FLEETING
ONLY THE MOON UNDERSTANDS THE BEAUTY OF LOVE
WHEN HELD BY A HAND LIKE THE AURA OF NOSTALGIA

Tram wires cross northern skies
cut my blue heart in two
my knuckles bleed down tattered street
on a door that shouldn't be in front of me

Twelve thousand miles, away from your smile
I'm twelve thousand miles away from me
Standing on the corner of Brunswick
got the rain coming down and mascara on my cheek

Oh whisper me words in the shape of a bay
shelter my love from the wind and the rain

Crow fly be my alibi
and return this fable on your wing
take it far away to where gypsies play
beneath metal stars by the bridge

Oh write me a beacon so I know the way
guide my love through night and through day

Only the sunset knows my blind desire for the fleeting
only the moon understands the beauty of love
when held by a hand like the aura of nostalgia

tram wires cross northern skies
cut my blue heart in two
my knuckles bleed down the tattered street
on a door that shouldn't be in front of me


twelve thousand miles away from your smile
i'm twelve thousand miles away from me
standing on the corner of brunswick
got the rain coming down and mascara on my cheek


oh whisper me words in the shape of a bay
shelter my love from the wind and the waves


crow fly be my alibi
and return this fable on your wing
take it far away to where gypsies play
beneath metal stars by the bridge


oh write me a beacon so i know the way
guide my love through night and through day


only the sunset knows my blind desire for the fleeting
only the moon understands the beauty of love
when held by a hand like the aura of nostalgia

Don Little

One of the most beautiful songs I think I've ever heard. Wallander introduced me.

This song is a flawless mix of wistfulness, wounded dignity, and loneliness. Somehow the landscape and the song and "Wallander" are all a mutually perfect fit.
