lyrics

In the dark she sits and waits
to scared too sleep in case he's gone when she awakes
the doctors are all tucked in their beds
and down the hill the waves still roll

In Bass Strait, Bass Strait

Florescent lights line the halls
the wind and rain hit the window in squalls
her heart is right up in her throat
as she watches his chest's tentative

Rise and fall, rise and fall

5 am dread sets in, she still waits
she roams the empty corridor to take a break
but her heart is still back in that room
with the morning light she's by his side

As he slips away, slips away

And the waves still roll
and the waves still roll
and the waves still roll
now he is gone

Into, Bass Strait, Bass Strait.
