about

This song came directly from seeing a motorbike and sidecar parked on a pavement on the Perth Road - and all the verses just tumbled out pretty fast. It's about being there for somebody - going alongside them. Along with Orion's belt, it floated around my head the past few years and pushed me to get the album together.

lyrics

Will you be my sidecar, maybe, will you come along with me?
We'll ride the roads together, and see what we shall see.
If the road is hard or if the road is clear,
Will you be my sidecar maybe, will you go with me from here?

Will you be my umbrella, give me shelter from the storm?
We'll walk the roads together, and keep each other warm.
If the days are short and the nights go on too long,
Will you be my umbrella, give me shelter from the storm?

Will you be my faithful compass, will you help me find my way?
We'll walk the wilds together, and say what we shall say.
If the skies go dark and the clouds are ashen grey,
Will you be my faithful compass, will you help me find my way?

Will you be my baked potato, will you keep me warm and fed?
Will you be the voice of reason to the nonsense in my head?
When it seems the world has got me on my knees,
Will you be my baked potato, I can be your grated cheese.

I can be your sidebar baby, I can go along with you,
We'll ride the roads together, and see what we can do.
If the road is rough, or if the road is smooth,
I will be your sidecar baby, I will go along with you.
