"The Growing" as written by Matt Ford, Warrick John Leggo, Ross Andrew Johnston, Maree Therese Bonner, Glenn Easton Dormand and Glenn Matthew Abbott....
Beautiful mind beautiful mind
Beautiful mind oh my
Hold my hand and I
Hold my hand and I
Hold my hand and I go blind
Beautiful mind beautiful mind
Beautiful mind oh my

Well I’ve been ridin’ hard for days
Tryin’ to find my weary way back to your heart
I tied my demons to a pole
And left them stranded in the hole
They dug for you
Now I can almost see the light
As I travel through the night
Soon there will be no pain
You are my reason for livin’
I beg to be forgiven
I’m ready to love again

So I’ve come to the conclusion
That the thing that keeps me losin’ is my fear
But is it my fear of success
Or is somethin’ more or less
That commandeers my soul
Somehow I managed to survive
And the moment I arrive I find you gone
And the note upon the table
Says you found yourself unable to carry on

You’re gone…. You’re gone

“My dear sweetheart, when they sent you away
I promised I would wait for you
Until and beyond the end of time.
And through these past twelve summers
Eleven winters, and all days in between
I have made good my promise
In the face of all temptation
But as the nights grow colder
And a twelfth winter approaches
It is with profound regret
I find myself unable to carry on.”

When it comes to lay the blame
I guess it always ends the same
I let you down
I was the one to lead the charge
I got us livin’ large then I was gone
But when those coppers dragged my down
And locked me up in that other town
I called your name
I thought I showed you how to live
It was all I had to give
I could never love a man who’d kill himself for me
