"Darling Harbour" as written by Neil Boshart and Shane Told....
In the lighthouse by the sea, at the thirty-third degree
You make me feel so special and free
But there's something in the air turning stutters into stairs
I look into your blue eyes and say

(Darling) Don't throw it all away
(Darling) I'm here to make you stay with me

In the sun I look so pale, northern skin so thin and frail
But I try to close my eyes, when everything starts fading
When I wake up from this dream shivering under cold sheets
Ten thousand mile away, I wish I was on King Street

(Darling) Don't throw it all away
(Darling) I'm here to make you stay with me

Newly risen how brightly you shine
Something seems to give inside my heart when you're nearby
All I've given to you is faking eyes
I don't understand, I can't figure it out, I can't figure it

On a park bench by the street, at the forty-third degree
I'll sit and watch the snow fall and think
If these walls could tell the tale and excuse to no avail
Will you ever begin to forgive me again, to forgive me now

(Darling) Don't throw it all away
(Darling) I'm here to make you stay with me (stay with me)
(Darling) Don't throw it all away
I don't understand, I don't understand (darling)
I'm here to make you stay with me (stay with me)
I can't figure it out, I can't figure it

    Lyric CorrectionThe end of the song should go like this instead:

    (Darling) Don't throw it all away.
    (Darling) I'm here to make you stay with me.
    (Stay with me, Stay with me)
    (Darling) Don't throw it all away.
    (I don't understand, I don't understand)
    (Darling) I'm here to make you stay with me.
    I can't figure it out, I can't figure it.

    General CommentShane: "Josh came up with the music for this song just as we were finishing up writing 2009’s A Shipwreck In The Sand, so we didn't have time to record it. I’m almost glad, because this song became really special to me and I needed the vocals to be perfect in terms of what I wanted to say and the vibe I wanted to come out of it. Fitting it into the concept of Shipwreck wouldn't have been right for that song or record."

    This song was inspired by both Sydney (Darling Harbour, King Street...), which is one of their favourite places in the world, and an episode of Lost that Shane dreamt of one night.
