Tarkine

Written by Jim Moginie

Duration 4:20

From the album Resist

There's a red bridge in the mountains
Where the Tarkine trees touch multi-coloured skies
They cast shadows on the painted ground
And to get there, well, I just close my eyes

Well, I lost myself when I walked through you
All that I have now is a souvenir of you

There's a lexicon of forest giants
Coachwood, Myrtle, Blackwood and Turpentine
In this Hi-Vis world, I must have missed a turn
'Cause all I found were billboards, flyers and merchandise

W?ll, I lost myself when I fell for you
I can't r?member, but the love is oh so true
Well, I lost myself when I walked through you
All that I have now is a souvenir of you
