lyrics

Aurelia,
How I long to tell you just how loved you are
And though you may see your shadow cast,
Well it’s striding up to meet you in the morning but it’s melted away after dark

But I’ve no answers, I can’t tell you if you will make it out alive
Though not from want of trying
And I know, that life’s been a burden and unbearably strange
So I’ll just sit with you and pray
That the morning brings a little change
Well Aurelia, I know it’s selfish but won’t you hold out another day

Aurelia,
You the only daughter
For miles of wire fences and brothers why won’t your mother see what life has taught her
And though I’m barely more than a child
I can comprehend how something done by somebody so young can take a lifetime to mend

But I’ve no cure, I can’t tell you if you will make it out alive
Though not from want of trying
And I know, that life’s been a burden and unbearably strange
So I’ll just sit with you and pray
That the morning brings a little change
Well Aurelia I know it’s selfish but won’t you hold out another day

Late one Tuesday,
How did you know
Where and how it ended with the lights all out, and nobody home
And I’m amazed by
Your courage when you knew it was the garage and how you put us to sleep at night


I know his assurances come to you in dreams
And you can hear his laughter from the living room it seems
Oh but what right have I to write of such things?

Well Aurelia I only hope that when the dog days come you think of me
Oh Aurelia I only hope that when the dog days come you think of me
Oh Aurelia I only hope that when the dog days come you think of me

about

The Lowlands Canberra, Australia

Formed in Canberra in early 2016, the Lowlands write cleared-eyed, bittersweet folk songs. Coloured by the band's love of jazz and blues, their music is for drinking to, dancing to, or when you feel like you've got the rough end of the pineapple.

Their debut self-titled EP was released in December 2016, and they have since been enjoying bringing the EP to the stage with their intimate live show.
