about

This is a platonic love song about my friend, Christakiz Nicolaou. He went travelling one day &, basically, he never came back. Well, he did....but for a couple of weeks and that was that. I was gutted he upped sticks & moved on but, at the same time, immensely proud'n'happy for him. Quite jealous of him for doing that, to be honest. He's the nicest guy in the world. We had some crazy, great times together.

When he was in the Far East he posted some pictures on the internet. One was him & an elephant. I thought the photo was taken in Vietnam:

"I’ve seen a photo of a friend.
He looks so happy in Vietnam.
Into the jungle he has gone
On the back of an elephant".

When I spoke to Chris he said that was in Laos, not Vietnam. It was too late by then - we'd recorded it! The message is still the same though - he's living his dream.

lyrics

I’ve seen a photo of a friend.
He looks so happy in Vietnam.
Into the jungle he has gone
On the back of an elephant.
Looking forward to his return
To hear his stories & adventures
So I can pretend I was there.

I sometimes wish that I was there.
He lives his life without a care.
I never put a rucksack on
To go away & have some fun.

He’s waking up in Eastern lands.
Finally seeking out why he’s here.
Trying to work out who he is.
In time it becomes clear.
Not happy with his life so far.
Too many ties to times gone by.
He’s in the sea, the sun shines down.

I need to holiday the world.
A holiday from life.
Can I turn back time?
Put my life on hold?
So I won’t regret a thing when I am old.
