about

Dedicated to my grandmother, Anne Vincent (18/9/1941 - 13/4/2008)

lyrics

A North Western highway
With a view of Bass Strait
We wind past Boat Harbour
And Llewellyn Lake
Over the bridge
There are two streets to choose from
And countless opinions on which one is best to take

It’s here every summer
Where we’d all gather
And from my Grandmother
Came stories and games
Seemed an endless supply
Brings tears to my eyes now
Wondering just how many more little gems she had in store

Out of her hair
This patch had been shaved
I’m a punk rocker
Was the joke that she made
Though tiny and timid
Still such a brave heart
Taking her final steps down Irby’s Boulevard

We opened her cover
Her skin now had sun
And Sisters Beach air
Filling her lungs
For the last time
Though she’ll never leave us
A Banksia breathes, no weeds just native plants and trees
A note on the fridge we read, it’s warning still we heed
A mark on the beach she leaves as tides and life recede
