Fourth digital single for 2013. A remake of a track from "you've been in my mind". Played here on acoustic and electric guitar with bass xylophone. Folky, bluesy, jazzchords- country style singing. That's the Graney brew.


mt gambier night. dark and light
wide open to the stars. bright satanic mills
houses I know the stories inside
different people. I know the stories around
back streets. back town. back roads
back state. back country. back world.
spiralling down and holding still
a holding pattern decades deep. I fall onto my feet so sweetly.
I know this night, mt gambier night
cold and clean
lights spill onto an empty street
I walk down the middle of the road
my footsteps keep me company
somehow, outside of the world.

mt gambier night
decades later I drive by myself as I walk
I’m in the backseat on the right, stoned.
music shuttin’ the world out
booze keepin’ the lid tight
a sad carload, tryin’ to act natural, how would a car?
mt gambier night
back in it
waitin’ for me
in a holding pattern
I pick up where I left off
