Danger In The Past

from the 1990 album 'Danger In The Past'.

Your sister picked me up at the station. She told me they’d taken you in, the word was it was just observation I thought here we go again. Danger in the Past. So I went and I saw you. We walked through the hospital grounds. I took your hand and I told you, never show your problems in a country town. Danger in the Past. We had friends. We had friends that didn’t make twenty-five. I knew a genius in a bedroom who couldn’t walk outside there have been some tremors in our lives. Danger in the Past. Your mother is a saint, with her goodwill and with her strength. I think that she thought that we were once lovers now she seems happier that we’re friends. Danger in the Past. So you signed yourself out, with a cross and with a curse. You took my arm and you told me, that you knew some good people there in Perth. Danger in the Past. So I went back to my own city to find that I’d meade enemies while I was away. You might think this is a hard thing to do and it was your sister who used to say. Danger in the Past.
