Liner Notes: 

May have been late down here in Aus but thought I would give it a go!

Lyrics: 

V1

Cackle of the fire

Sizzle in the pan

Like a ring of horse drawn wagons

4Wds are all parked around

Chorus

Look up

There's a picture in the sky high above the ground

Dots of history beaming down

Know I home when I look up through the dark

Alpha Crucis is at the base Of the mighty Southern Cross

Alpha Crucis is the Bright Star

V2

Travelled the whole world

Trekking across plains

Taking trains and planes even horseback

Get my feet back on my doormat

Chorus

Look up

There's a picture in the sky high above the ground

Dots of history beaming down

Know I home when I look up through the dark

Alpha Crucis is at the base Of the mighty Southern Cross

Alpha Crucis is the Bright Star

This has a lovely mellow flow to it - really evokes the open skies and being outdoors. Would love to hear it with music!

Really good use of descriptive imagery that makes me feel as if I'm almost there! 1st verse and chorus are especially strong.

You bring the natural world/environment so nicely to life in this. I feel like I'm out in the wilderness connecting to the stars above. I especially like this line: "Dots of history beaming down".

I can see this gang of riders star gazing together. I like the use of your constellation knowledge. I struggle with anything more than the big dipper.

I love the scene you set with the campfire and the dark sky above... the magic of the night sky and The stories its constellations tell come alive with your words! Really wonderful take on the skirmish!

You've managed to transport me...I can smell the smoke...feel the heat...anticipate something delicious cooking around the campfire! And I can close my eyes and see the southern view of the universe. All because of your lovely lyrics! Nice work!!

Very much like the imagery - The bright star to guide you home, no matter where you may travel. Nicely done
