"Under The Milky Way" as written by Karin Gunilla Jansson and Steven John Kilbey....
Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty
Sound of their breath fades with the light
I think about the loveless fascination
Under the Milky Way tonight

Lower the curtain down on Memphis
Lower the curtain down all right
I got no time for private consultation
Under the Milky Way tonight

Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find
Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

And it's something quite peculiar
Something shimmering and white
Leads you here despite your destination
Under the Milky Way tonight

Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find
Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

Under the Milky Way tonight
Under the Milky Way tonight

    General CommentMaybe this song has no comments because it's not written by KH themselves, or maybe it means nothing to any other listeners.
    I'll admit, when I first heard it I was unaware Mat didn't write it. In fact, I was quite shocked, it's very much in his style. I guess that's why it was chosen. It kinda reminds me of some of their own stuff, 'Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty' is similar to 'At 3am there will be no one' in New Heart For Xmas.

    General CommentI agree it is very much like Kill Hannah's sound. I think they did a really good job on it. This is my favorite of all of their covers and I enjoy listening to it more than the original.

    I think The Church would be pleased if they have heard it and I'm sure anyone would agree it was a job well done.
