"A Midlife's Tale" as written by and David Bridie....
My neighbour does some funny things
He's got three kids and he's got six drinks to go
Before he sleeps tonight
Singing liberation songs out on the front veranda
My neighbour falls asleep out there
He wakes up the next morning with the sun
And it reminds him that it's time, it's off to work we go
It's always one day starting way behind another

Get it back now, get it back now, get it back now

Dreaming is a casual thing you do if you belief
And just by chance one day the loverly things will come
True
But he's way past thinking that, it's now a day by day
Proposal
He's lost his magic, christ, he'd like to get it back now

Get it back now, get it back now, get it back now

Once upon a time there were so many plans
Holidays and blossoms and some find romance
But it's all behind him now, there's no game plan to be
Followed
He's lost his magic, christ, he'd like to get it back now

Get it back now, get it back now, get it back now
