lyrics

I've always known, known a long while
Grandfather is a crocodile
I can hear him now
Stepping through the reeds and grasses
It is comforting to know
He's keeping an eye on us

And if he comes near
Don't throw no stones at him
If he comes close
Say you still love him most
Cos it can get lonely

Late Wednesday night well I woke up
Walked down the hall
Felt something wrong
In the corner by the hat stand, my grandfather
Well he dragged me down the back steps
Through the garden

Beyond our fence, his little creek
In his embrace I went to sleep
And I dreamed about the raising of my mother
All the things she learned
The energy spent on her

And if he comes near
Don't throw no stones at him
If he comes close say you still love him most
Cos it can get lonely
Me and mine will catch up some other time
You and yours are always in our thoughts
But it can get lonely

about

Metropolitan Walks Sydney, Australia

Metropolitan Walks had a bunch of unadorned pop doodles recorded that he was planning on maybe doing proper later on but one day realised they were already finished and so dropped his debut album.
