long ride, that you are taking me on
a long strange ride
long ride, that you are taking me on
a long strange ride

keep sunrise, you can forget sunset
i want to see the sun in the middle of the sky
'cause the dawn and the dying light
have gathered too much meaning
and i want to feel numb

there must be something else
we haven't found on this long strange ride

long night and even longer day
i'm so sorry, i've been travelling blind
high time you rest your weary eyes
love, it's been a long strange ride

there must be something else
we haven't found on this long strange ride

From my home city Adelaide Australia now i have been living in Canada for the past 8 years and haven't heard this band for that long we locals love this band ..Thank You RP
Gave it an 8 because they are from Australia
Painfully slow
I love that sparse banjo.

Tune is totally different, but the instrumentation and overall vibe are definitely in the same vein.

I think it's some new fangled thing called stereo!😉

This sounds very much like The Wonder Stuff track on Never Loved Elvis. Can't remember the song title. 
Hi there from South Africa, good song
I thought i had a problem with my earphones, they start that song on the left side only...  anyway, cute song and wake me up when it's over
So much amazing alt-country coming out of Oz! The Audreys from Adelaide... The Waifs from Albany... I really like all I've heard on RP
It's just a ride.
So beautiful. I have to learn to play this.
 I like near guesses.
I just upped my rating to godlike.

I agree!
I bought their tee shirt. So everyone knows who I am.
Taasha likes my name too.
Dude, you get old fast. I love this tune.

Guys, relax!  Fred didn't go anywhere.  

I mean, I'm sure he went some places, but he's still posting song comments! {#Chillpill} 
Lovely way to ease into my Friday late afternoon. Thanks RP.  Have a great weekend.

Seems a great time, well an appropriate topic to share article, "What Turned Jaron Lanier Against the Web?" Bit long, some internet history vs humanity.  I appreciate the comments and take on lurking trolls. Very insightful perspective into how the internet and the anonymity it provides can bring out the dark side, 'the digital barbarism'.  I really enjoyed reading this article while my daughter's tonsils were getting yanked out, from dates you can tell it took, well stuck with me long enough to find it again.

Live n learn, but don't let the troll chase you away Fred!

This spitting match began over three years ago, so I hope it's a dead letter. The notion of RP's boards without fredriley is a pretty grim one. Fred, I hope your offer wasn't ever serious. Illegitimi non carborundum.  

We're all stuck with each other, I'm afraid—even the people who demand that other members be banned from RP boards. Frankly if owned this station I'd turf out everyone making such demands but there's something a little too recursive in that policy.

This song could possibly be the most dreariest song played on RP awfull
Instead of "there must be" x3...I was hearing "war nazi"....x3. I am embarrassed to admit that I add now to the misheard lyrics community.
I'd just like to say, despite the blathering idiocy to which I am complicit on this page...THIS SONG IS AWESOME!  
Taasha Coates can sing to me anytime.
So annoying when the conversation has moved entirely away from the music.  Especially when it is as good as this.

The song that is not the petty conversation about whether peoples feelings have been hurt.  I consider posts here a lot like poetry - better out than in and its more cathartic i.e. I don't expect anyone else to take my opinion seriously.  For fucks sake I often don't.
Haunting

No affiiation to Nottingham, nor Fred, just appreciate diversity of opinion and dislike trolls.
ps: my $.10c don't feed 'em by giving them a target - there's enough idiots who will register under different aliases just to get you/anybody who opposes them out.
So, Fred. You now have to weigh the positives votes against the negatives.............should balance the scales somewhat?
 
Are the polls closed? If not, I vote for Fred.

Seconded, if it isn't too late...

Getting old - the song, not me!
This one can bring a lump to the throat indeed!  Perfectly, simply, gorgeously sung and arranged...haunting, emotional, and TRUE!
It's a good song, but I swear I know a song that uses the same exact riff (or whatchamacallit). I just can't remember the name and it's killing me.

Edit: Okay, it might be Given To Fly from Pearl Jam (especially the solo at the end), but I still remember as if it was an entire song built upon that melody. I'm still searching :(
like it,
Kean Out
Love it.
Simple, evocative, beautiful.

"There's got to be something else
we haven't found, on this long strange ride."  Fur sure.
I sure like this song.
Lovely mood setter.  Evocative and wistful but not sad. 
{#Clap}
Simply beautiful.  Nice harmonies and simple acoustic accompaniment.

Great song - my friend used this song on a film.

Dont let the haters win. I may not always agree with your verdict, but I always enjoy the commentary! Keep your account alive.

Fuck 'em Fred.
I don't always agree with your perspective,but that's part of you not being me, and vise versa. 
If someone can't "take it" let them go on holiday to the "island of myself".
Fuck 'em.

Bumped fro 8 to 9.  Dang - this song just gets better with every listen. The vocals that intertwine and gather strength, each from the other, the comfortable groove they have, and the banjo and fiddle - so heartbreakingly beautiful. This might end up being a 10.  Love it. {#Meditate}{#Sunny}
 
I'm with you, each time I hear this it just gets more beautiful. Had it as 8 now 9
really really like it.
Little to slow for my taste, but it has something very nice!
..."there must be somethin' else..."  beautiful words, fabulous song.

Ooo - good call!  They did a song called, "And You Dance" that still gives me chills to my toes.  I wish they hadn't broken up...

That's a bit of an overreaction, isn't it? Name calling over an innocuous statement like that only makes you look bad.

I can't describe just how this song makes me feel.
I guess indescribable is the feeling.
Almost too pretty for its own good.

He has that breathy voice like the guy from Iron and Wine. Very simple. very sweet.

good tune. the standout track among what other stuff of theirs i've heard, which just kind of runs together with other rootsy, folksy pablum.
