about

The groove is sort of influenced by Ani DiFranco's 'Bliss Like This'. Written and recorded on the same evening (2013/11/08).

lyrics

Lavender’s the colour of the jacaranda flowers
And the sky is just a shade paler blue
I could keep on lying here in your arms for hours
Only something tells me that won’t do for you

Won’t you tell me Lilly Long

What’s bothering you darling
‘Cause I can’t bare to see you so blue
Tell me what’s bothering you darling
Lilly Long won’t you tell me the truth

Now that the cicadas have be chattering for hours
And a Southerly’s brought cool into the room
The petrichor is heady and you know that we’re both ready
But I know you’re still not comfortable at all

If you don’t say I’ll never know

What’s bothering you darling
Lilly Long please just let it all come out
Tell me what’s bothering you darling
Lilly Long why don’t you tell me the truth

Come on Lilly darling I know inside you are snarling
And I’m waiting patiently to hear from you
Nothing you could say would be to me at all alarming
Well I guess if you don’t share tatt’s up to you

When you feel better maybe
We can work it out
I don’t want to push you
Nor leave you in this fugue state

So tell me

What’s bothering you darling
Lilly Long why don’t you let it all come out
Tell me what’s bothering you darling
Lilly Long why don’t you tell me the truth

Tell me what
