about

Maggie

When I first met you Maggie, I assumed you were lost
On a road going nowhere, till I covered the cost
Your were hungry for a meal and I was starved of company
So I offered up my bread crumbs, and you sat down next
to me

From then on Maggie we would make one hell of a pair
You would name the place and I would get us there
\Looking back I was looking for something lost in me
| guess it was the feeling you found in being free

Maggie you used to say
That you were mine and mine alone
And that your there to be loved
but not there to owned.

As my hairline started to thin and my feet grow tire
I pulled off to the side of the road so we could retire
I built you castle of the stones along the way
But a castle is a prison to one that doesn’t want to stay

I know now Maggie that you never saw a home
You only saw four walls that made you feel alone
For maggie there’s not a view from any window
That can match the feeling of walking out a door unknown

Maggie you used to say
That you were mine and mine alone
And that your there to be loved
but not there to owned.

Maggie let go of my hand ‘cause it was holding her down
While I need to have her close she just needs me around
She kissed me and thanked me and asked me not to cry
I just stood in the door way….waving Maggie goodbye

I wished her the world … she was gonna take it any way
I didn’t waste my words … none would make her stay
When or If Maggie, you ever think of me
Don’t think of me as your Jailer but the one that set you free

You can give your heart away
Like you gave it to me
You can give your heart away
But it will still pump your gypsy blood

Some nights I wake up and whispering your name
But you cant hear me as ever road does the same
I heard that on the highway that you’ve found another lost soul
And together your travelling the coast looking for gold

Maggie I feel better that you’re not travelling alone
But I wish I found a partner for the journey of my own
Maybe I was a pit stop on the road for you
Though my love didn’t cut as deep, it was true

about

The Badenvilles Hobart, Australia

The Badenvilles formed in early 2013. The group’s hybrid sound is born of each member’s individual taste and musical background. Gordie’s pledge when forming the band was to create music that sounded like Iggy Pop covering Johnny Cash. Or vice versa..
