lyrics Khe Sanh

I left my heart to the sappers round Khe Sanh
And my soul was sold with my cigarettes to the blackmarket man
I've had the Vietnam cold turkey from the ocean to the Silver City
And it's only other vets could understand
About the long forgotten dockside guarantees
How there were no V-dayheroes in ninetee seventy-three
How we sailed into
Sydney Harbour
I saw an old friend but I couldn't kiss her
And she was lined and I was home to the lucky land
She was like so many more from that time on
Their lives were all so empty until they found their chosen one
And their legs were often open but their minds were always closed
And their hearts were held in fast suburban chains
And the legal pads were yellow hours long, paypacket lean
And the telex writers clattered where the gunships once had been
The car parks made me jumpy and I never stopped the dreams
Or the growing need for speed and novocaine
So I worked across the country from end to end
I tried to find a place to settle down where my mixed up life could mend
I held a job on an oil-rig flying choppers when I could
But the nightlife nearly drove me round the bend
And I've travelled round the world from year to year
And each one found me aimless one more year the more for wear
And I've been back to South East Asia
You know the answer sure ain't there
But I'm drifting north to check things out again
Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
And only seven flying hours and I'll be landing in Hong Kong
And there ain't nothing like the kisses from a jaded Chinese princess
I'm gonna hit some Hong Kong mattress all night long
Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
And it's really got me worried
I'm goin' nowhere and I'm in a hurry
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
Yeah, you know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
Yeah, it's really got me worried
I'm goin' nowhere and I'm in a hurry
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
