about

Three true stories, intersecting. The stranger who visits Exmouth town may be familiar to those who know the local connection to the film The Big Short...

lyrics

When first we met, we lived out of town
By St John in the Wilderness
We were living by the air
We didn't need to stop or rest

We were playing at gypsy living
Walking barefoot out on the road
Looking for the deer by twilight
We didn't care what was bought and sold

It was a small disused caravan,
And we filled it with guitars
Who needs walls of concrete,
When all you want is to look at the stars?

And when the crash came, it didn't matter, for we thought
Those were the chains we'd refused,
And losing it all isn't something you fear
When you have nothing to lose
Losing it all isn't something you fear
When you have nothing to lose

You had to walk up the hill for water,
And one night as I was washing plates
I heard a sob from the corner,
And I never will forget her face, she said

We were normal people,
Two jobs, a house, and three kids
Then the crash came, and took it all,
And now it's eighteen months we've lived like this
It's eighteen months we've lived like this

A dream can come and light you up
A dream can drive you with it's will
Dreams can give, but dreams can take
Dreams can live, but dreams can kill

A stranger came to Exmouth town,
Dreaming of a life of wealth
Did he know a fortune is always built
On the bended back of someone else?

A stranger came to Exmouth town,
He played the game so well you see
What did he know of caravans?
What did he know of you or me?

A stranger came to Exmouth town
He saw the houses built on sand
The rich they dream their money grows,
What do they know of caravans?
What do they know of caravans?

A dream can come and light you up
A dream can drive you with it's will
Dreams can give, but dreams can take
Dreams can live, but dreams can kill
Dreams can live, but dreams can kill...
