Parralox - I Sing The Body Electric

I Sing The Body Electric

Written by John von Ahlen

Verse 1
When the river turns against you,
And the rhythm starts to hurt you
There must be someone there who knows how you feel

Pre Chorus

Turn your love around
Turn your love around
Suddenly you found what you've been missing
(and then you say to me)

I sing the body electric
I sing the body electric

Verse 2
When forever turns to never
And the promise, that you held so dear
Becomes a shadow of all our pain

Repeat Pre Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Middle 8
So maybe we know, when our worlds collide, we'll be fine
The Heaven we know cannot be defined, but we must sing the praises of angels tonight
(and then you say to me)

Additional Info:
The first half of the music video was shot on location at Hanging Rock, the same location used by Peter Weir in the classic Australian movie "Picnic at Hanging Rock". If you haven't seen that movie, then you must really check it out. The other location shot on the same day was Lauriston Reservoir, which my family used to visit when I was a youngster. Back in those days you could cross the dam and venture into the Pine Forest and collect Butter Mushroom. I hated the mushrooms, but I loved the forest!
On the second day we shot at 90 Mile Beach, which is a renowned beach in Australia, mainly for it's lovely sand and endless stretch of beach. You can't really tell, but it was over 40 degrees Celsius and both Amii and I were nearly passing out. Amii moreso because of that damn cape she had to wear!
We also stopped in Morwell when we found a lovely Rose Garden. We didn't use any of the Morwell footage in this video, but we did use it for our "Enjoy the Silence" video.
