Birdgirl Luke, Nick, Luke, and Johnny, Well, what a sweet acoustic gift from a quietly talented Australian band. Just keep doing this! My ears like your stories, your guitar playing, and you know what?... I can hear every word, beautiful. Is it true that this CD was mainly put down live, in only 5 days? That says a lot for your live performances! Thankyou. My favs are Honey, Doorstep, Sugarcane, Falling Through. Favorite track: Honey.

Bucky I was raised on The Eagles and coincidentally Raised By Eagles has a certain nostalgic ring to it summoning memories of listening to The Eagles tapes in my dads truck as a child. This however, has elements of the Eagles, along with hints of Dire Straits all mixed into a modern alt country mish mash. I'd say Americana, but they're from Australia, so it seemed kind of weird. Australiacana? Diamonds in The Bloodstream is utterly fantastic! Favorite track: Jackie.

Falling Through (L.Sinclair) when i heard about you i was in the middle of a song took the tune right out of me to know that you were gone we saw you falling long before you fell through before something shook the gold right out of you so much space to fill when you’re living between the lines you were always hard to reach i’d see you at the bar sometimes i could never pin you down or find a clear line through and then something shook the gold right out of you you gotta keep your motor rollin’ there’s no way back down through the dust to change your mind only thing you gonna change is who you left behind down on jericho road we’ll all be thinkin’ it through we’ll take a drag and take a drink and think of you you gotta keep your motor rollin’

Jackie 04:50
Jackie (L.Sinclair) jackie was a tough kid she’d light up when the moon did shining like a streetlight down on the corner near where I lived we got caught stealing cigarettes jackie’s Mumma slapped her in the teeth she said ‘you aint gonna see him no more you’re just a kid he’s just a thief when Jackie smiled there was blood on her lip i just waited for someone to speak she slid a cigarette into my sleeve and said I’ll see you next week jackie was a tough kid we were so young nobody loved her like I did but you can’t catch the sun there were times she would disappear i wouldn’t see her on the school bus then she’d turn up somewhere out of the dark just like the sunrise does she was pretty in the best way she used to smell like pine wood she had a heart that was set like stone no one could hurt her like her Mumma could jackie was a tough kid we were so young nobody loved her like I did no body no one
3.
Sugar Cane (L.Sinclair) moonlight in the kitchen dropping cigarettes down the drain standing by the open window listening to the rattle of my brain the tv’s like a lullaby veranda light’s are low nothing but the crickets and the creaking of the floorboards and you, breathing deep and slow if you had love at any time you hid it like a thief somewhere in the white noise somewhere underneath im thinking of that train heading north through the sugar cane honey I can almost feel the rolling of those wheels the hum across the hillside comin up from the freeway down below sends a hum across my heartstrings lately it’s the only song I know love cannot be trusted sometimes love will leave sometimes you get busted sometimes you get free im thinking of that train heading north through the sugar cane honey I can almost feel the rolling of those wheels
4.
Honey 04:59
Honey (N.O’Mara) when you’re fishin’ by the river and you’re wishin’ for luck and love you can use me as your bait anytime just put me on a hook and honey baby drop a line when the light comes through your window and the day starts to break on you you can call me from the bed where you lie just get me on the phone and I’ll be there right on time honey let me take you there you know there can be anywhere when your crooked friends present you with their lies mixed up with the truth we can run all night through the city they’ll never stop us cause honey they aint got no proof honey let me take you there you know there can be anywhere
5.
Waterline 05:19
Waterline (L.Sinclair/N.O’Mara) I took the long way home thought of you sinking to the rock and stone when you’re lonely it’ll come on slowly like lines on the back of your hands creep across you like shifting sands you were so far away from home holding the wrong side of a wishing bone out where the water meets the sky I caught you in the corner of my eye I saw you drowning but you never waved I just watched hoping you’d be saved now I’m haunted by the ripples on the surface of the waterline you were so far away from home holding the wrong side of a wishing bone there was a time when I could see us clear as the day before the darkness took my mind I remember when people wanted to be us back in the days before it started to unwind now I’m haunted by the ripples on the surface of the waterline you were so far away from home holding the wrong side of a wishing bone
6.
Window Seat 03:20
Window Seat (L.Sinclair) just another streetlight but the colors don’t seem right around this town been such a long time since you ain’t been around speeding down the old lines just following the road signs following the lead i never been in the mess i’m in but I guess you had to leave we had diamonds in the bloodstream one hand in the wind one on the wheel there were silver lines inside our minds we were chasing something real i miss the way you made me feel it was nothing but a shit fight in the end i tried to do right but honey you know me i got somethin of a mean streak and I’m prone to jealousy it’s funny how I miss you so much funny how it all unwinds and how the best of friends can fall away and then finally cut that line there was something in the distance it was gone in an instant the colour caught my eye sleeping in the window seat dreaming of the open sky
7.
Doorstep 04:23
Doorstep (N.O’Mara) i'm drinkin with a friend of a friend another Saturday night at another loose end and the crowds and the lights and the shuffle and the din and I’m laughing alone but I don’t hear a thing i’m thinking of the sweetness of your skin how you’d open the door and you’d just let me in wipe the sleep from your eyes I’m at your doorstep again standing at the bar standing in line i check my pockets and I check the time looking for something I never find last drinks last call while im waiting for a sign i’m thinking of the sweetness of your skin how you’d open the door and you’d just let me in wipe the sleep from your eyes I’m at your doorstep again your standing in your doorway like a fawn and I’m throwing myself at your feet again as the night breaks to dawn i could let this city burn you know I never learn i’m looking at the sweetness of your skin now you’ve opened the door and you’ve just let me in wipe the tears from your eyes I’m at your doorstep again
8.
Days Fall 03:18
Days Fall (L.Sinclair) i work so hard tryin to make it work so hard to get paid work so hard to feel something that’s gonna steal my heart away im tired of turning over twos and threes tired of wakin up sore tired of feelin’ like you’re gonna leave don’t wanna feel like that no more havin’ no money makes you crazy sometimes i get so mean i been takin’ some cheap shots lately i can see that you’re runnin’ out of steam my own worst enemy baby i know i promise this time i’ll beat it down just gotta find somethin’ i can fall back on that aint booze or weed and i’ll come around days fall away like dying leaves you get a little time in the sun then you’re ridin’ the breeze days fall away like dying leaves hold on honey i ain’t gonna let you down hold on and we’ll come out clean i aint pretty but you know i can dance babe i got some of the best moves you never seen been on the back-foot for too long always afraid of the lion’s roar i’m gonna steer this right into the sun now i’m gonna do it for you baby that’s for sure days fall away like dying leaves you get a little time in the sun then you’re ridin’ the breeze days fall away like dying leaves
