about

This is a love song, pure and simple. Loving someone so much that the only expression big enough to hold all of that emotion is to ask them to marry you. And when they say yes, a spell is cast and time stands still, just for a moment.

lyrics

Under the shade of the Jarrah tree I’ll ask you to stand
Still as the water in the Blackwood river that winds its way beneath our feet
I’ll ask you to hold your breath for a minute and I’ll hold mine too
Maybe we could keep so still that time will cease

And I’ll ask the question I’ve always asked and always will
Fate stretches like fabric the cloth in which we bind ourselves

My heart will shout and stumble hearing the answer
Skip to the end of the red dirt road that leads to your home
Slip through leaves and the smell of summer to the magpie’s carol
Reeds in the river wade out to the middle of the clear, clear blue

And I’ll ask the question I’ve always asked and always will
Fate stretches like fabric the cloth in which we bind ourselves
And I’ll ask the question I’ve always asked and always will
Fate stretches like fabric the cloth in which we bind ourselves
