LYRICS

There's nothing but space to meet my view
There's an empty feeling when I think of you
I thought your memory would fill my heart
But the further I travel the further we're apart.

Bewitched by your beauty I followed you around
From your performance in Beechworth town
There's no fool like an old fool or so they say
Do you think of me while I'm far away?

Chorus:
The further I travel across desert sand
Through spinifex and mulga, through the heart of this land
The further I travel the further we're apart
The further I am from your heart.

I gave you a bracelet to remind you of me
A bracelet as golden as this country
A new spell's upon me, this land has won
Its endless horizon draws me on

I close my eyes your face I see
An empty feeling comes over me
I thought your memory would fill my heart
But the further I travel the further we're apart.
