lyrics

Leila, I can’t move it’s too heavy, no
But Leila won’t let us stay here no more
No morning star if we get caught

Leila, I can’t move it’s too heavy, no
But Leila won’t let us stay here no more
No morning star if we get caught -

Torn asunder by thunder on a clear night
Star light, star bright
Secretly wonder why there are no street lights
Star bright, star light
Asking them how but wondering why
Just to be told don’t you cry, don’t cry, my little eye
Sun on the mountain and blood in the sky
Who said we’re gonna be alright? Well…

Leila, I can’t move it’s too heavy, no
But Leila won’t let us stay here no more
No morning star if we get caught -

Over the hills and into the town
Five days don’t make a sound
We’re not homeward bound
In the rain stained rooms, ‘bout to be pulled down
With others that they found, oh that they found, hey


This worthless leatherbound curse of my kind
It’s colour won’t let us inside
I said it’s colour won’t let us inside
But we could make it to the island, lord, even make it there alive but
At home we’ll surely
At home we’ll surely
At home we’ll surely…
You could even bet your bottom dollar that we’ll…

But Leila, I can’t move, it’s too heavy, no
But Leila won’t let us stay here no more,
No morning star if we get caught, oh

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.
