"Around the Corner" as written by and Josef Marais....
Upon the rocks above the falling water he comes close
To jumpin off the edge instead of standing watching what's below
And when there's frost outside on every window cold winds blow
Comes so close to walking out the front door without a coat
There is no round the corner anymore
There is no round the corner anymore
There is no round the corner anymore
There is no round the corner anymore
Whatcha gonna do jagged edge lays in your bath not gonna hate it?
Whatcha gonna do to someone who hold you back you not gonna have it?
Whatcha gonna do if there's a siren floating round you not gonna catch it
Whatcha gonna do if it gets to weary through the horn you not gonna exit?
Upon the rocks above the fallin water he comes close
To jumpin off the edge instead of standing watching what's below
And when there's frost outside on every window cold winds blow
Comes so close to walking out the front door without a coat
There is no round the corner anymore
There is no round the corner anymore

    General Commentthe feeling i get is of
    an impression of childhood and nostalgia.

    also ...i think a nostalgia for a common place
    to be is clearly expressed. there is no around the corner anymore. there's no place where you can go and meet your friends and talk like you used to because of the linear progression of time,( or at least our perception of it)

    somewhere in the suburbs i think.

    also there's a male component and a female component to the verses. there's 2 maybe melding points of veiw about how things used to be?

    It's a really pretty song and it reminds me of my little corner of pa.

    General CommentThis song seems to be about suicide, especially when you focus on the part about jumping off the edge. Also, later in the song, they sing "What are you going to do if you get too weary to go on? You're not going to exit."

    I think they are talking about suicide as an exit to life.

    Also, the idea of "there is no around the corner anymore" means that you are headed straight ahead and not turning left or right.

    General Commentinteresting analysis, but i think that it might even be an anti-suicide song... using the line "...if you get to weary to go on? you're not going to exit" means you should just keep going and see what's ahead in life, since that's all we know and all we ever will know while we're alive, you might as well tough it out since you're here. there is a lot of desperation in the song, but desperation for what? i think it might be desperation for a better life, not necessarily ending life.
