lyrics

I walked all the way to Arva today
Past the cornfields and the hay
With a bottle of water in my hand
I set off down the highway

I walked all the way out of town and then some
Tom Rush was singing in my head
The sun was shining over the farmhouses
The roadside flowers were orange and red

Oh happiness, happiness
Happiness finds me even when I’m alone
Oh happiness, happiness
Happiness finds me even when I’m far from home

I walked all the way until my legs lay me
Down in a field full of green
The sky was big and blue
The clouds were far and few
And I was feeling free

Oh happiness, happiness
Happiness finds me even when I’m alone
Oh happiness, happiness
Happiness finds me even when I’m far from home

about

Ange Takats Australia

One of the purest voices on the Australian music scene – Ange Takats is able to coat with sugar, crush with sadness and cut through to the soul of a song.

Her second album Arva mixes Americana folk with the sounds of 1930s jazz … think Joni Mitchell meets Billie Holiday with the Andrews Sisters on backing vocals. It was recorded and produced by J. Walker (Machine Translations).
