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

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

shelter my love from the wind and the waves

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

Never forget, Wallander is the reason we got Tom Hiddleston as Loki.

Emily Barker

I met him once in a bar in Nashville! 😊

Holly Bobbett

Wallander brought most people here but shows how good the song is we all heard it and wanted to hear it again

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.
