The Girl From Tiger Bay

Album: The Performance (2009)
  • There's a crack in every pavement, underneath there is a beach
    It's been a long time longing as history repeats
    Yes, many times, I've wondered why a part of me remains
    In a place so full of beauty that somehow never changed

    CHORUS:
    I bought a ticket of a lifetime
    There's no denying who I am
    Forever young, I will stay
    The girl from Tiger Bay
    I bought a ticket of a lifetime
    There's no denying who I am
    Forever young, I will stay
    The girl from Tiger Bay
    The girl from Tiger Bay

    Time has me believing that there's nothing left to prove
    I feel the love within me and love can't be removed
    There's a crack in every pavement, underneath there is a beach
    It's been a long time longing as history repeats

    CHORUS

    All the memories and the scars,
    They dance away into the stars
    They dance away into the stars

    CHORUS
