Music by Gareth Koch
Lyrics by Steve Kilbey


i’m just a guy holding the pen
but this fair city brings down the song
that i’m singing to you
and all i am is just a pair of eyes
the whole world is watching through me
trying to get to me

there’s a voyage into solitude
there’s no escape from yourself
celebrate every day you’re not dislocated
or amalgamated into the past

jazz my stolen heart cold and golden
hold my stars in your hand

i’m just a fool under a stupid moon
but this river rushes onwards into the dawn
i’m just a voice you hear sometimes
when you’re contemplating
after you’re gone before you were born

when you’re lost at sea all alone
when you’re roaming in no-man’s land
thank the universe no fate could be worse
you pray to god to understand

jazz my stolen heart cold and golden
hold my star in your hand ...ahh
