Lyrics

It was June 2021
Early morning and the wind was having fun
As they huddled in the room, five came down
It was like the dawn of doom
Mick, he called, said you better come and see
Five km rule but it’s an emergency
I rushed myself straight to the scene
At the house Mick said “Hi” but I couldn’t speak
We’ve been warned, we’ve heard the plea
We’re losing the war, it’s plain for all to see
In the end, it’s down to you and me
Like the people of a country under siege
The hills were struck by man’s disease.
The shed was folded into a “V”
The big one hit the house, the roof it breached
Then there is Magnolia, in the middle of it all
The big one tried to hit her, like a hammer to a nail
As it crashed you can hear her sigh
Mags stood between the two arms of its “Y”
We’ve been warned, we’ve heard the plea
We’re losing the war, it’s plain for all to see
In the end, it’s down to you and me
It took me 3 years to bring Mags back to life
So I write a song for Mags as if she is my wife
Then yesterday as they fixed the fence
She was in the way, so in the end
It is from man that she never stood a chance
We’ve been warned, we’ve heard the plea
We’re losing the war, it’s plain for all to see
In the end, it’s up to you and me.
