Dominion Road is bending
Under its own weight
Shining like a strip
Cut from a sheet metal plate
'Cos its just been raining
Jane'd reached the point where she knew
What he meant before he opened his mouth
He couldn't say the same
Or he'd have guessed she was moving south
With one of his friends
But its getting better now
He's found it in him to forgive
He walked the city
And he found a place to live
In a halfway house
Halfway down Dominion Road
As he watched Jane's brother sell the house
He felt no sense of loss
More like a mountain climber
Looking back having made it across
The steepest face
Ah,but he's still climbing
See him trying to cross the street
He checks his footing
Like he was up ten thousand feet
Above the the clouds
Halfway down Dominion Road
But its getting better now
He rests his head on the window sill
He watches the city
Sees the antennas in the hills
From a halfway house
Halfway down Dominion Road
Halfway down
Halfway down
Halfway down Dominion Road
Halfway down
Halfway down
Halfway down Dominion Road
Dominion Road
