"Peaches And Cream" as written by and John Charles Wiltshire Butler....
Well there's far too many questions to ask,
To answer all of them tonight.
For I wear, too many masks,
To tell if any of them are wrong or right.
And confusion casts a shadow upon me,
Like a great big cloud in the sky.
And now I pray for rain
Cause it's been so long since I let myself cry

For so long, I've sang this sad ole song.
And it feels like my time is up.
For she came and landed in my arms
And she filled my half empty cup.
Yes she filled my half empty cup,

Now I look up above me,
And I thank that great old God in the sky.
For telling me my cup ain't half empty.
Just took my little girl to show my why

There you are.
Right in front of me,
A brand new day,
Sunrise over sea ,
No longer,
My cup half empty,
'Cause there you are,
You and your mum in front of me.
Your peaches and cream to me.
You both are peaches and cream to me.

All I know is
All I know and
I love you

    General Commenti reckon this song is about his daughter coz in this song you can hear a little girls voice. i think this song is saying how he was sad and lonely until he had his daughter. then it says "you and your mum in front of me, peaches and cream to me" so it's defdinetly about his daughter

    General CommentYeah, when I saw them he said the song's about his wife and daughter. They closed their set with this, and broke out the bongo drum solo. It was glorious.

    General CommentA great song that really hit home for me. I used to say that my destiny was to die by 30 until my child was born he saved my life and gave me a reason to appreciate the world.

    General CommentI think before johns daughter banjo was born he thought he was missing out. He regrets ever saying that his cup was half empty , because his daughter was always going to be with him and he always had danielle(his wife). I also think the three bands he has on his arm , atleast two of them represent his family. One for banjo and one for danielle

    General CommentI remember first hearing this song in concert in 2003 and hoped to hell he'd release it because it's meaning is so powerful. At his last Sydney concert in 2005 he played it through one microphone and got the audience to sing along with him. Nearly everyone knew and sang the words. If you haven't seen John Butler in concert, you haven't lived. It is well worth it.

    General CommentThis song always gives me shiver because it is just such a beautiful and powerful song. It's just how live seems to be made whole when you have a child and they seem to be all that you may have been missing. The beauty of life.

    General CommentIts strange that the album is titled "Sunrise over sea", yet this song is titled Peaches and Cream even though sunrise over sea has the most emphasis in the song

    General CommentThe picture of a half-filled cup[His wife?] being full is beatiful.

    General CommentI saw a video of him playing this song and he had tears in his eyes. I have never seen a musician cry while playing their own song. I respect him tremendously and wish someone would love me that much ):
