Lisa Mitchell – Let Your Body Lyrics

It wasn’t always this colour It used to be lighter When you go swimming In Dhungalla Everything changes I used to know you You used to know me Now I see we were Living shakey Foundations My society Needs pulling out from the roots There’s no word For nature In Noongar language Another western madness Welcome to rehab I used to know you You used to know me Now I see we were Living shakey Foundations My society Needs pulling out from the roots We’re all coming down From a very overgrown sense of survival I recommend Supporting your unravelling And they may be small Everyday offerings Take more food with you than you need You never know when someone might need it It wasn’t always this colour It used to be lighter When you go swimming In Dhungalla Everything changes

Lisa Mitchell – Supporting Your Unravelling Lyrics

It wasn’t always this colour It used to be lighter When you go swimming In Dhungalla Everything changes I used to know you You used to know me Now I see we were Living shakey Foundations My society Needs pulling out from the roots There’s no word For nature In Noongar language Another western madness Welcome to rehab I used to know you You used to know me Now I see we were Living shakey Foundations My society Needs pulling out from the roots We’re all coming down From a very overgrown sense of survival I recommend Supporting your unravelling And they may be small Everyday offerings Take more food with you than you need You never know when someone might need it It wasn’t always this colour It used to be lighter When you go swimming In Dhungalla Everything changes

Lisa Mitchell – She Is Of The Earth Lyrics

She is of the Earth and And the stars No words come from her mouth, but Her body is loud She is of that Soft, silty, river stuff Bleeding through the continent Down to adelaide The sacred love She becomes She’s more like a tree or a Sugar glider landing on the roof In the dark of night that covers us You can hear the thud She is of the Earth and And the stars No words come from her mouth, but Her body is loud But her body is loud Her body

Lisa Mitchell – Let Me Stay Here Lyrics

Let me stay here I long to touch the fruit As they’re turning From green to blue Let me stay here Long enough to see The painted wall And their dancing feet Let me stay here Long enough to know All the little birds As they come and go Let me stay Let me be the light To rampart fire In the yard Let me stay here In your arms Let me stay here Long enough to love

Lisa Mitchell – As Love Lyrics

I came back here to start something I let everything die, die, die You were everything You were all the fucking colours But you didn’t care about such things And I met you in the Spring of my life You were as crazy as I And the fields the blooming The streets were bursting with hues And we, we didn’t care about such things As love As love As love As love And now the sun’s high in Melbourne town And I’ve been long out the ground now And you’ve only grown more handsome Do you care about such things As love? As love As love As love

Lisa Mitchell – Blue Lyrics

Your hands weren’t as blue As you told me they were Oh, you’ve been painting all those things Like some kind of bowerbird And your lips are And your hands I can’t stop checking in the mirror I can’t stop checkin’ And I keep waking up in the night I keep examining my body I can’t stop checkin’ in the mirror I better think of something ‘Cause I’m turning Am I turning? Am I turning? Am I turning? I think I don’t feel the same On the back of my neck I better think of something I better think But your lips are And your hands I can’t stop checking in I can’t stop checkin’ And I keep waking up in the night I keep examining my body I can’t stop checkin’ in the mirror I better think of something ‘Cause I’m turning Am I turning? Am I turning? Am I turning? Am I turning? Your hands weren’t as blue As you told me they were But I think I’m turning I think I’m

Lisa Mitchell – Apricots Lyrics

You will find me in the fruit trees With the dappled light On my legs The ground far below The apricots are warm And the man at the party Said most of love Is letting it go And I remembered crying When I first fell for you So I think I knew I think I mourned you I think I knew I was always going to lose you I think I knew I think I mourned you I think I knew I was always going to lose You will find me In the fruit trees With the dappled light On my legs The ground far below The apricots are warm
