Roo Panes – Arcadia Lyrics

Arcadia song and lyrics by Roo Panes

Adventures in her dressing gown,
smoke rings in the car,
once upon a time she had a dream called “Arcadia”
Well today’s the same old story,
someones trying to win the world,
really not that different from a kid trying to get the girl.

There’s a postcard on the mantelpiece,
it takes a noble bow,
with a letter on the back – it doesn’t really matter now.
She comes in from a late shift,
and tumbles into bed,
and just rifles through her phone – for the things he never said.

Will somebody take her where the roses bloom?
She’s only ever heard of hearing “I love you”,
whatever happened to… “Arcadia”?

Whatever happened to “Arcadia”?
