Peter Napthine – Veneer lyrics
Watching the sun go down
The close of a summer’s day
It won’t be long before the morrow
I’m singing another song
Wiping the tears away
It’s how I’ve found to treat the sorrow

Let’s hide behind the laughter
Let’s hide behind veneer
Deep inside you know
We’ll still be true
I’ll hide behind the music
I’ll hide behind the cheer
Deep inside you know I’m still with you

The flowers begin to fade
Making their way back home
We have to hand back what we borrow
The migrants are on their way
Back to a safe abode
It won’t be long before we follow

So, let’s hide behind...

I’m starting to feel the chill
Nights are now drawing in
The birdsong’s sounding kinda hollow
As we face the bitter pill
Let’s look out instead of in
No longer in self-pity will we wallow.

So, let’s hide behind...
