I still believe in fairies but they hide real good in the city

I actually live on the edge of town and country to be fair, you can see a lot of fields out over Mangemangeroa Valley, which is only ten minutes walk round the corner, but this song got me when I was walking down Quay Street not long ago. Thinking of childhood, Turangi, holidays long ago.

 

COUNTRY HEART.


I dream of climbing mountains as I scale the cracks in the pavement
trying to find the heart beat below the ground
I still believe in fairies but they hide real good in the city

cos i'm just another city girl hiding my country heart
i'm just another city girl missing where I started from
everybody round here's real nice
I know I gotta nod and smile
but deep down I'm just another city girl
Hiding my country heart

It seems we're dime for a dozen
I know cos Facebook tells me so
All the other girls like me
Wishing they could turn back history

And I'm making it big in my own way
But all my friends still say
Oh you're just another one of those big city girls
Hiding your country heart
Yeah I'm just another city girl
Hiding my country heart

In my red high heels, I look like I'm so for real
I paint my eyes with gold, so I don't notice getting old...

Oh I'm just another city girl
I'm just another city  girl
Just another city girl
Hiding my country heart
I'm just another city girl missing where I started from
Everybody round here's real nice
I know I gotta nod and smile
But deep down I'm just another city girl
Hiding my country heart

I still believe in fairies but they hide real good in the city
I still believe in fairies...

And deep down I'm just another city girl hiding my country heart
I'm just another city girl missing where I started from
Everybody round here's real nice
I know I gotta nod and smile
But deep down I'm just another city girl
Hiding my country heart
