Jimmy Barnes

James Dixon Swan (born 28 April 1956), better known as Jimmy Barnes, is a Scottish-born Australian rock singer-songwriter. His father Jim Swan was a prizefighter and his older brother John Swan is also a rock singer. It was actually John who had encouraged and taught Jim how to sing as he wasn't really interested at the time. His career as both a solo performer and as the lead vocalist with the rock band Cold Chisel has made him one of the most popular and best-selling Australian music artists of all time. The combination of 14 Australian Top 40 albums for Cold Chisel and 13 charting solo albums, including nine No. 1s, gives Barnes the highest number of hit albums of any Australian artist. more »

Ain't it strange how opposites attract
Can't explain but it's a proven fact
All I know, can't turn my back on you
Here we are, we're drawn into a flame
No ones fault, no one we can blame
Can't deny you feel the same way too
And I tell you'll be always close at hand
When you feel you'll finally understand
You and I were meant to be as one

Hey girl, we got a love
That I swear will stand the test of time
Can't be here with me, I swear I would rather be blind

I was lost and had nowhere to turn
You came and I began to learn how it feels
You touched down deep in my soul
When you find you need someone to hold you tight
And everything around you don't feel right
Call on me and I'll be there by your side

Hey girl, we got a love that I swear
Will stand the test of time
Can't be here with me, I swear I'll go out of my mind
Oh believe me now, you are the light
That will lead me through the darkest night
If I can't see you with me
I swear I would rather be blind

And I tell you that I will always be closer, hey
When you feel you finally understand
You and I are meant to be as one

Hey girl, you are the light
That will lead me through the darkest night
If I can't see you with me
I swear I would rather be blind
Oh believe me now we got a love
That I swear will stand the test of time
I swear I would rather be blind
Baby, we got a love
That I swear will stand the test of time
Believe me girl, you are the light
That will lead me through the darkest night
I would rather be blind
