Cheer Up, Heavy Hands demo

about

This is a song I wrote while living in Australia, wondering how I would proceed after moving across the world only to encounter heartbreak.

lyrics

cheer up heavy hands and heavy hearts
you're a long long way from where you're used to
pick up your feet and get a start
it's ok, they'll get you where you're going to
mmm
it's ok you don't know where you're from
it's ok you're a long long way from home
it's you've gone to the other side
you're a long long way from home

put your notice on the board
put another town behind you
got your mind as your sword
don't forget to let your heart remind you

it's ok you don't know where you're from
it's ok you're a long long way from home
it's ok you've gone to the other side
you're a long long way from home
home

now this place ain't what it seemed
and all you think of is the place before
you wear your heart on your sleeve
don't forget that that's the reason that you came for
oohh

it's ok you don't know where you're from
it's ok you're a long long way from home
it's ok you've gone to the other side
you're a long long way from home

it's ok you've gone to the other side
it's ok to feel like all your hope has died
it's ok you don't know where you're from
you're a long long way from home
you're a long long way from home
you're a long long way from home
but you'll remember where you're from
