Beneath these restless waves
A vessel's in its place it lies
We forget and live our lives

A moment in a dream
Forever Child she speaks to me
She’s on her favourite ride

She missed one day from school
The bus pulled in the seats are full
And the ship is to arrive

Misjudged the time and speed
Ship hits the bridge catastrophy
And the bus now takes a dive

Tears Simone
She draws a tear and paints a picture with them
For she’s alone and all her fears are empty desks and long hallways
And everybody says, deal with the pain

Closer to the edge her friends don’t seem so far away
Flirting with the pain, needing a new dependency

A move to inner peace, she’s making up her mind
She’s standing on both feet
But this is not the day for flight
Freedom you suppose, is not over the edge
You have not lost the fight
Because the fight is not over yet
And she’s starting to work through the pain

Closer to the edge her friends don’t seem so far away
Flirting with the pain, needing a new dependency

    General Commenti think this song is about a girl ( and yeh im only saying girl cuz it says girl but could relate it to a guy too) going through some problems and to her it seems some people are influencing her in a way to think suicide is the better option, but i in the end she takes a stand on her emotions and notices that she has people around her and she can make it......kinda yeh... thats just wat my 1st thought was about...

    General Commentthe whole bus trip might be a metaphore, but the story goes on to say how the bus crashed and all her mates died, and the empyiness at school now, makes her want to committ suicide, but "this is not the day for flight"
    best part is "she draws a tear and paints a picture with them" awesssssomee

    General CommentWhen i 1st heard this song it described to me, a girl who has lost all her friends and the only way to feel free is to die. her life seems way too long and all she wants to do is find peace but no one understands how she feels

    General CommentThis Song was written by Andrew after speaking to a woman who suffered loss after the tragic accident on the Tasman Bridge in Hobart, Tasmania, when the ship SS Lake Illawara Collided with the bridge. a Bus carrying school kids drove straight over the edge, killing them. This song is about the girl who didnt go to school that day and what she has been through...her friends died in that disaster. it talks about how she feared going back to school and she was "flirting with the pain" of giving it all away, she felt like she had nothing more to life and she "needs a new dependancy". We asked Andrew himself.
