A stone’s throw away was written quite early on, it was once included as part of the first Obs demo together with How’s Life? etc. In the end, we felt it sounded too much like my solo material, so I kept it for my own release Black Book, which was essentially a collection of demos. This version you hear has Viv on piano and was a rehearsal demo recording made in The Well. We performed it during the Time of Rebirth Concert at the Substation in 2003. Viv and I were living in Hillview at the time and the song was inspired by an infamous abandoned haunted house which we overlook. Many bikers would visit it in the middle of the night for a thrill. Being a depressed escapist then, I wanted to live there.

Here is the Music Player. You need to installl flash player to show this cool thing!

 

A STONE’S THROW AWAY

A Stone’s Throw Away

(Vivian Wang – Piano; Recorded – 18 Jan 2005)

 

 

if you go

 to the station now

 then you’ll know

 the gods are whistling now

 all alone

 will you witness this scene?

 if you see

 empty houses then

 come with me

 to the woods up there

 what we learn

 in our lifetime is free

all alone may i stay

 a stone’s throw away

 from the sun?

 all alone may i stay

 a stone’s throw away?

if the times

 never-ending then

 how do we stop then?

 our ticking friend

 evergreen

 ever eager to please

 if the gates

 hide a secret now

 and the doors

 never took a bow

 we will wait

 in the aisle like thieves

 

 all alone may i stay

 a stone’s throw away

 from the sun?

 all alone may i stay

 a stone’s throw away?

a stone’s throw away

 from the sun
