ESKIMO JOE


Foreign Land Lyrics

Steady my shaky hands
Shut off the world's demands
to get the facts down
Do you understand?

That this is a foreign land
So try to understand that
Do you understand?
Do you understand?

This is what it feels to love
then l can feel that
This is what it feels to love
then l can feel that
This is what it feels to love
then l can feel that
This is what it feels to love
then l can feel that

Even when you're all alone
Even when it's not your home

Take a little look around
nothing else hits the ground
Touch my hand
up to the air

Dying in the foreign land
So do you understand that
Do you understand?
Do you understand?

This is what it feels to love
then l can feel that
This is what it feels to love
then l can feel that
This is what it feels to love
then l can feel that
This is what it feels to love
then l can feel that

Even when you're all alone
When it's not your home
I smell the blood of an Australian
Try to understand this if you can
if you can
if you can

This is what it feels to love
then l can feel that
This is what it feels to love
then l can feel that

Even when you're all alone
When it's not your home
I smell the blood of an Australian

They were already standing on their own two feet. Well and truly Kate L...
How many hits before this and a career enduring how many years. Under The Sea was a top 10 for how many weeks?
Now just enjoy a song in Heaths memory. That's what I do...

Only the songwriter will ever know what the song was truly written about but thats the beauty of music, you can listen to a song and relate it to something so that it means something personal to you.

Kate L, Heath Ledger and the Eskimo both come from Perth in western australia and they are paying tribute to their mate and Australian troops who fought in Turkey in WW1,they are not vultures!

I love this song! And if you didn't know that this song was about Heath's death, you would probably love it. I have to agree with Tales; they were singing for a mate and that is really great to see.

You're a knob Kate L, using that rational Elton John and Don McLean can't stand on their own feet cause they have songs about dead people. I suppose movies shouldn't be made about dead people either?
