Blue Jean Baby, Iluka

Sweet words by Australian singer/songwriter ILUKA

Blue jeans and winding dusty roads. Space to breathe again, out of the city smog, under skies that never end. Memories flash. Childhood moments. Long, lazy days wandering pine forests on the horses with Mum, playing music with Dad out on the verandah as the sky turned into a candy coloured swirl of pink and orange and red over the valley as the sun went down. The sweltering heat of long Summer days, when we kicked the dust up off the road and prayed for rain. The night drives when we stood up on the back seats of the old red land rover and shouted at the stars. The biting cold Winters, when we sat around the fire and told stories of the land and all the strange characters who had lived around here, convinced their spirits still haunted these hills…

I guess as they say, distance makes the heart grow fonder and returning to this place is like returning to that dream you had as a child where you wake in this hazy cloud of nostalgia and you can’t quite remember what you dreamed about. You just know you want to go back there again and again…
