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?


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.


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.
