Lyrics: Anna is a dancer,
5 foot 9 in height
Her longed for adventure,
So she went and took her flight
North to South she travelled down
But her journey stopped in Brisbane town
Something is a-changing, why’s there pain?
Why are you aching when you move your body home?

She is a miracle time and time again
She proves these people wrong as she dances to the end
She is my sister but oh she is my friend
Now her bodies growing stronger and the days are getting longer
As we walk and walk again.

Anna is a strong wife, protective she will be
Every hour that God has sent she’ll wait and wait with he
No colour here, no tales of joy
Just a good, strong love that you can’t destroy
Something isn’t right and so we’ll wait into the night
For him to bring his body home.

She is a miracle time and time again
She proves these people wrong as she dances to the end
She is my sister but oh she is my friend
Now her bodies growing stronger and the days are getting longer
As we walk and walk again.

'Gorgeous vocals that come intimately to the forefront; the harmonies complimenting each other beautifully whilst each voice individually grabs and ravels you in, forcing you to listen intently' - For Folk's Sake (extract from EP review)
