You put your hair back in that magic black elastic
I’m powerless to ponytails who used to do gymnastics and I
Know you know you wanna dance
When I watch you smile and try to mask it
And stir your whisky with the plastic

You’re pitcher perfect in this light beer
Nevermind the twenty-hour flight here

Alice, Alice
All my best come ons
But come on
You are too far away

But everything is better through a camera in Canberra
Skype is now my lifeline and email is manna and if
Airfare weren’t so unfair
I would be in Sydney instantly
And we’d be Bondai bound

You have monopolized cute
But talk about a trivial pursuit…

(chorus)

Too far away to keep
Cause every time I wake up you’re about to go to sleep
And you say “g’day this is Alice leave a message at the beep”
Only missing you is pointless when you’re always out of reach
Besides there’s nothing left to say to you now I just have to hold you
And now we are just as natural a disaster as I told you
So evacuate my heart ’cause inside is total chaos
And I lose myself when people say your name and I stay lost for a good three days
A really good three days

Maybe one day we’ll find a way
Maybe one day we’ll find…
But day for me is night for you
But I’ll still say goodnight to you
