Which way do you recommend? [Verse 1]
Thought I needed some medicine
But this is how I always been
‘Cause we always go too far
Never know when if we will end
Which way do you recommend? They can know me by heart, my friend
Don’t we always go too far? They can know me by heart, my friend
Don’t we always go too far?

Steve Aoki – Lie To Me lyrics

Turn the clock so when you were mine
If you don’t wanna stay
If there’s no other way
But baby lie to me
[Chorus: Ina Wroldsen]
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie

Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Maybe we can just be your lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
I’ll be good, I promise this time
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
If you don’t wanna stay

I don’t know what you want from me
But you can have it all
I promise I’ll be all you’re after
Just don’t walk out the door
So look me in the eyes, let me show you my truth
I promise not to cry
No, don’t get down to tie your laces
Don’t say what’s on your mind, oh no
[Pre-Chorus: Ina Wroldsen]
‘Cause I don’t wanna know, oh
Baby can we turn back the time? [Intro: Ina Wroldsen]
Lie, lie, lie
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
[Verse 1: Ina Wroldsen]
You used to like me touching you
You used to feel the sparks
I used to make you love with madness
I used to have your heart
You used to keep your hand in the small of my back
I used to make you glow
We used to become one like magnets
And now you gonna go, oh
[Pre-Chorus: Ina Wroldsen]
And I don’t wanna know, ah
Baby can we turn back the time?

Lost Kings – Stuck lyrics

I gave you what you wanted
Moved East right after college
But nothing filled the space
I called you whereever you hearted
Moved West the end of August
So I could find a place
[Pre-Chorus]
But maybe I need ya
‘Cause it’s harder than I thought
Baby, I need ya
But you always want too much
Oh, f*ck it, I need ya
And I’m really trying tonight
But I miss it when it’s dark, aah
[Chorus]
Aah, somewhere between love
Aah, got feelings I don’t trust
Aah, right in between love
Aah, stuck
[Verse 2]
I get so possessed of when I see you happy
But I want you to be happy
I get so conflicted when I see you without me
Are you better off without me? [Chorus]
Aah, somewhere between love
Aah, got feelings I don’t trust
Aah, right in between love
Aah, stuck Don’t you know, you gave me what I wanted
So quiet in the morning
Just you and I could fill the space
Lately I’ve start to notice
Have been missing all the little moments
By now I thought I’d be okay
[Pre-Chorus]
But maybe I need ya
‘Cause it’s harder than I thought
Baby, I need ya
But you always want too much
Oh, f*ck it, I need ya
And I’m really trying tonight
But I miss it when it’s dark, aah
[Chorus]
Aah, somewhere between love
Aah, got feelings I don’t trust
Aah, right in between love
Aah, stuck
[Bridge]
Stuck inside this feeling, baby
Stuck inside this love
Stuck inside a moment, baby
Can we give it up? Stuck inside this feeling, baby
Stuck inside this love
Stuck inside a moment, baby
Can we give it up? [Verse 1]
Just because I can’t put my finger on the problem
Doesn’t mean there ain’t a problem
We’re so quick to think history could just solve ’em
Don’t you think we would’ve solved them by now?

Zedd – Happy Now lyrics

[Post-Chorus]
You’re the only one who can
You’re the only, you’re the only
You’re the only one who can
You’re the only, you’re the only
[Outro]
World away
Somewhere in the crowd
In a foreign place
Are you happy now? There’s nothing left to say
So I shut my mouth
So won’t you tell me, babe
Are you happy now? There’s nothing left to say
So I shut my mouth
So won’t you tell me, babe
Are you happy now? There’s nothing left to say
So I shut my mouth
So won’t you tell me, babe
Are you happy now? Are you happy now? There’s nothing left to say
So I shut my mouth
So won’t you tell me, babe
Are you happy now? Are you happy now? [Chorus: Elley Duhé]
You’re a world away
Somewhere in the crowd
In a foreign place
Are you happy now? [Verse 1: Elley Duhé]
You’re the only one who can up and run
Leave me just as empty as the day you came
And you hold all the cards, all the broken hearts
Strung over your shoulder till it’s all in vain
[Pre-Chorus: Elley Duhé]
And only you know the strength of your teeth
The wash in the weight of your pockets, so deep
And lonely
[Chorus: Elley Duhé]
You’re a world away
Somewhere in the crowd
In a foreign place
Are you happy now? [Post-Chorus]
You’re the only one who can
[Verse 2: Elley Duhé]
In the palm of your hands
You can make me dance
Spin me around in circles till I’m wrapped in string
You keep on talking sweet till your fingers bleed
But don’t you dare ask me how I’ve been
[Pre-Chorus: Elley Duhé]
Now only you know the strength of your teeth
The wash in the weight of your pockets, so deep
And lonely
[Chorus: Elley Duhé]
You’re a world away
Somewhere in the crowd
In a foreign place
Are you happy now?

The 1975 – Love It If We Made It Lyrics

Truth is only hearsay! We’re just left to decay! Fuck your feelings! Modernity has failed us
[Chorus]
And I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
I’d love it if we made it
Tell me something I didn’t know
[Bridge]
Consultation
Degradation
Fossil fuelling
Masturbation
Immigration
Liberal kitsch
Kneeling on a pitch
[Verse 3]
“I moved on her like a bitch!”
Excited to be indicted
Unrequited house with seven pools
“Thank you Kanye, very cool!”
The war has been incited and guess what, you’re all invited
And you’re famous
Modernity has failed us
[Outro]
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
Tell me something I didn’t know
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it
And I’d love it if we made it [Verse 1]
We’re fucking in a car, shooting heroin
Saying controversial things just for the hell of it
Selling melanin and then suffocate the black men
Start with misdemeanours and we’ll make a business out of them
And we can find out the information
Access all the applications that are hardening positions based on miscommunication
Oh! Modernity has failed us
[Chorus]
And I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
Yes, I’d love it if we made it
[Verse 2]
And poison me daddy
I got the Jones right through my bones
Write it on a piece of stone
A beach of drowning 3 year olds
Rest in peace Lil Peep
The poetry is in the streets
Jesus save us!

Russ – September 16 Lyrics

[Chorus]
I don’t know why we even tried this in the first place
But it all comes back to love
Yeah, it all comes back to love (na, na, na)
I been trying to do my best in the worst way
‘Cause it all comes back to love
Yeah, it all comes back to love (na, na, na)
[Verse 1]
Met back in our twenties
Ex-wife wanted money
You still wanted me back then but now you do not love me
No affection, no respect
It’s been too long since a check came my way
Not the same ever since my father’s death
No excuses, yeah I know
I been trying, I been trying
June I’m fine, kids I’m fine
I been lying, I been lying
So much pressure, I can’t sleep
Everything about me aching
It’s so hard to accept my kid bringing home the bacon
I’m at fault, I’m a loser, best believe I’ve heard it all
From the girl of my dreams that I married in the fall
And I get it, your resentment, yeah it’s justified
But I’ve had enough of arguing, I’ve had enough of crying
I know that you’re mad but you were mad when I was paid too
I’m feeling helpless I just hope our love saves you
It’s been over twenty years, recognize our blessings
Even though that we can barely coexist for more than twenty seconds, damn
[Chorus]
I don’t know why we even tried this in the first place
But it all comes back to love
Yeah, it all comes back to love (na, na, na)
I been trying to do my best in the worst way
‘Cause it all comes back to love
Yeah, it all comes back to love (na, na, na)
[Verse 2]
I love you Jim, the way you grin, the way you make me laugh
The way you helped me raise three angels, wouldn’t take it back
I think you’re a genius, that’s why I be stressing you
CEO, CEO, I expect nothing less from you
That’s a compliment, I know that I should show more
Gratitude for you, I know my attitude’s been so poor
But so have we but this is deeper than a bank account
I know that I got pent up shit, I know I need to work it out
Russell takes me traveling, he just does our balancing
He knows that you’re strong meanwhile he knows that I’m unraveling
He’s not taking sides, trust me he says that you’re right
He just tryna help us both, he don’t wanna see us fight
It rained when we got married and you know I loved the sun
I know I blamed you for things outta your control
But you’re the one that I love
Damn, that I love (I’m sorry, I love you)
[Chorus]
I don’t know why we even tried this in the first place
But it all comes back to love
Yeah, it all comes back to love (na na na)
I been trying to do my best in the worst way
‘Cause it all comes back to love
Yeah, it all comes back to love (na na na)
[Outro]
Na, na, na
Na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na

The Offspring – Down Lyrics

Displayed a kiss that made the day? Or, say, play a track from your record collection
It’s your mix, congratulations
[Chorus]
We changed a lot and then some, some
Know that we have always been down, down
If I ever didn’t thank you, you
Then just let me do it now
(Jump back in)
[Verse 2]
I bet you light up when we start the show
Follow me now, very closely ’cause I told you so
You know we glow because we throw sun rays
Now we be freaky and we want to stay (unh)
[Chorus]
We changed a lot and then some, some
Know that we have always been down, down
If I ever didn’t thank you you
Then just let me do it now
[Verse 3]
Lighting strikes, yo we be in that violent force of light
Guaranteed to turn it out as bad as Dolemite
Because we’re dope, kid, change like the chameleon
And the channel, whatever the whack show the “Real World” is on
You know we dazzle like ghetto box boomin’ battles
Rattle inside your head, feel redeemed like cola bottles
Fall in love with your teachers, on the wax we are self made
Check the technique, 311 in L. [Verse 1]
Chill
Light on my side as my ego becomes
A funky child with some words on my tongue
Be like intake of breath and my mouth gets loose
So while I scatter my spit, I dream of juice
Have you ever made out in dark hallways? A
[Chorus]
We changed a lot and then some, some
Know that we have always been down, down
If I ever didn’t thank you you
Then just let me do it now
[Verse 4]
Keep my feet on the ground
Keep my head in the clouds
Electrified by the sound
It comes from the down, and
[Chorus]
We changed a lot and then some, some
Know that we have always been down, down
If I ever didn’t thank you you
Then just let me do it now

Rick Astley – Chance to Dance Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Waiting for you day and night
I’ve been waiting for the longest time
I’ve been thinking I would turn to stone
Like a statue carved in Rome
[Chorus]
I’m just waiting for my chance to dance with you
A chance to dance with you
I’m just waiting for my chance to dance with you, woo
[Verse 2]
The rain is beating down on me
I feel like I’m getting cold feet
Now I know it’s sink or swim
Put my color up to the wind
[Chorus]
I’m just waiting for my chance to dance with you
A chance to dance with you
I’m just waiting for my chance to dance with you, woo
[Bridge]
Let’s dance to your heart beat
Let’s dance till my feet bleed
Let’s dance to your heart beat
Over and over
Let’s dance to your heart beat
Let’s dance to the same song on repeat
The same song on repeat
[Reprise]
I’m just waiting for my chance to dance with you

A chance to dance with you

Keep me waiting

Waiting for my chance to dance with you

Kodaline – Worth It Lyrics

Will you disappear? Are you giving up? I don’t know
I don’t know
I don’t know
I don’t know [Verse 1]
The stars in the pavement
Are washed up and jaded
There’s blood on the streets of gold
A beautiful waitress
Who just couldn’t make it
So far away from home
[Pre-Chorus]
Are you strong enough? Are you wise enough? Are you giving up? Are you wise enough? When it comes to me, I don’t know you see
I don’t want to leave, but I can’t stay
[Chorus]
I don’t know if it’s worth it
Is it worth it? I don’t know
I don’t know if it’s worth it
Is it worth it? Will you disappear? I don’t know
I don’t know if it’s worth it
Is it worth it? I don’t know
Is it worth it? I don’t know
I don’t know
I don’t know
[Verse 2]
No one can see them
The angels and demons
Are testing how low you’ll go
The sunsets and sunsets
As dark as your heart gets
It’s best if you just say no
[Pre-Chorus]
But are you strong enough? I don’t know
I don’t know if it’s worth it
Is it worth it? I don’t know
[Bridge]
I don’t know, if I want it or if I don’t
I don’t know
I don’t know if it’s fine now or if it’s not
[Chorus]
I don’t know if it’s worth it
Is it worth it? When it comes to me, I don’t know you see
I don’t want to leave, but I can’t stay
[Chorus]
I don’t know if it’s worth it
Is it worth it?

Juice WRLD – I Dont Need It Lyrics

I doubt it
[Chorus]
She love me like the dope man
She don’t like poppas, she still a coke fiend
I’ve been ballin’ just like Calvin Cambridge
She ask what I need, need, I need brain bitch
But she love me like the dope man
She don’t like poppas, she still a coke fiend
I’ve been ballin’ out like Calvin Cambridge
She say what you need, need, I need brain bitch [Chorus]
She love me like the dope man
She don’t like poppas, she still a coke fiend
I’ve been ballin’ just like Calvin Cambridge
She ask what I need, need, I need brain bitch
But she love me like the dope man
She don’t like poppas, she still a coke fiend
I’ve been ballin’ out like Calvin Cambridge
She say what you need, need, I need brain bitch
[Verse]
All the love, love shit, I don’t need it
Treat her like the change, you can keep it
Hoes all the same, no difference
Moods change like the seasons
I need the bitch to hide the pills for us
These bitches think they real for us
But would they really kill for us? I doubt it
Won’t even hide the pills for us
What makes you think she’ll kill for us? What makes you think she’ll feel for us?

The Internet – Stay the Night Lyrics

[Verse 1]
There’s another new love
I know you tryin’ to do right
But maybe we should stay cooped up
Like we don’t know what moonlight is
Lately I’ve been going crazy
Begging you to stay
‘Cause I just want you safe
Anger, ominous misbehavior
Got you feeling anxious all the time
[Chorus]
Maybe you should stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Why don’t you stay the night
Baby just stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Why don’t you stay the night
You know it ain’t safe outside
You should just stay tonight
Why don’t you stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Baby just stay tonight
[Verse 2]
You’ve been feeling kinda juiced up
Seeing things in a new light
I know you’ve been through stuff, but
I wonder if you’re too righteous
‘Cause lately people going crazy
I think you should stay
‘Cause I just want you safe
Baby, I know that you’re angry
Feeling like your fate on the line
[Chorus]
Maybe you should stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Why don’t you stay the night
Baby just stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Why don’t you stay the night
You know it ain’t safe outside
You should just stay tonight
Why don’t you stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Baby just stay tonight
Talk to ‘em Pat
[Guitar Solo]
[Bridge]
I just (I just)
Think you should (you should)
Stay the night (stay the night)
I just (I just)
Think you should (you should)
Stay the night (stay the night)
You should kick it babe
[Chorus]
Maybe you should stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Why don’t you stay the night
Baby just stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Why don’t you stay the night
You know it ain’t safe outside
You should just stay tonight
Why don’t you stay the night
Maybe you should stay the night
Baby just stay tonight
[Guitar Solo Outro]

Logic – One Day Lyrics

[Chorus: Ryan Tedder]
And maybe one day I’ll be wiser
Just maybe one day I’ll be farther from here
Put all of my faith in tomorrow
Dark days keep me up all night
All I know is it’s gonna be –
Alright
[Verse 1: Logic]
You ever wonder what it means to [?]
What it means to follow your dreams
On the come up, but they run up [?]
I been at it since a teen, since [?] had this dream
Work so hard to sacrifice and not know what it mean
Most of these rappers, ain’t got no [?] like bomb threats
And bein’ [?] of disease is the on set
And it don’t matter if you white, if you black
If you rich, or you poor, people always want more
But what can I give you? As long as I got the floor I’m ‘gon use this power to paint a picture of unity
Yeah I’m rippin’ with so much energy like there’s two of me
Fuck the lights and the cameras, right now it’s just you and me
[Bridge 1: Logic & (Ryan Tedder)]
One day (one day)
I’ll be richer than I was before
One day (one day)
I’ll have enough money to buy the store
One day (one day)
Young Sinatra, you know I’m finna do it my way
You on the road to success and I’m on the highway
[Chorus: Ryan Tedder]
And maybe one day I’ll be wiser
Just maybe one day I’ll be farther from here
Put all of my faith in tomorrow
Dark days keep me up all night
All I know is it’s gonna be –
Alright
[Verse 2: Logic]
[?] the mass
Yeah, I’m comin’ for that –
The game hasn’t been broke into in so long
[?] the cast, like my section 8 crib
[?] time I wasn’t born into the past
This right here a double-header
Logic and Ryan Tedder
All the way it can’t get no better
You know me, we do it for the children
I never thought I’d see the day I make a million
A couple thousand later, feel like everyone [?]
I [?] in that last line
But counting money has always been my favorite past time
Especially with a past like mine
Drugs in the household
Never had a- had a home
[?]
And if I can, you can no doubt
I know–
[Bridge 2: Logic & (Ryan Tedder)]
One day (one day)
I’ma do it like I never did it
One day (one day)
I’ma have the courage to go out and get it
One day (one day)
Do it, I love it, support my girl (one day)
I’ma shake up the whole world
[Chorus: Ryan Tedder]
And maybe one day I’ll be wiser
Just maybe one day I’ll be farther from here
Put all of my faith in tomorrow
Dark days keep me up all night
All I know is it’s gonna be –
Alright

“Many people, particularly younger people, don’t realise that Lifeline stores are retail stores not welfare stores,” Mr Fox said.To shift that perception, Lifeline has hand-picked some “awesome preloved vintage and retro pieces” specifically for Splendour. Photo:
“I grabbed strands of four, and I plaited them … high-vis, denim, knitwear — all of that mixed together,” designer Asher Larkin says of the outfit she created for the fashion parade. Fashion sense at music festivals, for many, is almost as important as the headlining bands.For punters attending this weekend’s Splendour in the Grass music festival, a new way of dressing to impress will be on offer courtesy of the charity Lifeline.Lifeline has set up a pop-up store filled with hand-picked retro and vintage apparel aimed at festival-goers.”People attending Splendour will see great bands and be able to do some sustainable shopping, making it the ultimate event,” said Jason Fox, manager of retail operations for Newcastle and Central Coast.The pop-up at the North Byron Parklands is also important strategically for Lifeline, Mr Fox said.Pre-loved vintage clothing funding suicide prevention

Hunter Institute of Fashion students sourced recycled material from Lifeline stores and styled them up into “some really cool outfits” at a runway event in June. When the ABC visited Mr Fox at work, he sported a wild pair of fluorescent coloured animal print jeans that he picked up second-hand for $12.”Twelve bucks!” he said. “It’s such a great opportunity for all of the textile businesses from around Newcastle to be able to do that as well as all the retro stores.”And then it’s also helping out Lifeline, as they make profits to help with their suicide prevention, so it’s a real win-win situation for both.”Talking the talk and walking the walk

Institute director Gabe Robinson said the partnership had been organised partly to raise awareness in students around the issue of fast fashion.”The biggest consumers of fast fashion is the youth market and — especially with the days of Instagram — they all want a new outfit for every photo,” Mr Robinson said. “Most stock will sell for only $15 a piece,” Mr Fox said.”Proceeds from our shops fund our services including the 13 11 14 line, face-to-face counselling and other community suicide prevention programs.

“After sorting through all of that I just grabbed a heap of fabric to use for my garment,” Ms Larkin said.Using strands of four, Ms Larkin plaited different fabrics — including denim and knitwear — together, and attached them onto a fitted bodice.The runway event, attended by more than 400 people, has changed the way Ms Larkin thinks about being a designer and consumer of fashion.”After seeing the amount of waste that the fashion industry creates, I don’t want to be a part of that waste — I would rather take the waste and turn that into something new to give it a new life,” she said. “That is a toxically dangerous mentality, so I wanted to do what I could and apply our creative talents here towards Lifeline to change the youth perception on vintage fashion through Lifeline.”I wanted students to become aware of the impact of the type of lifestyle they plan — or would live in the future — so we teamed up to draw focus on that in a major project.”According to ABC Television’s War on Waste program, 6,000 kilograms of clothing is dumped in landfill every 10 minutes in Australia.Mr Robinson, who worked for a decade in the television industry as a stylist for programs such as The Voice, said it did not have to cost a lot of money to look good.”It’s not money that makes someone stylish — it’s an eye, it’s creative influence, and that can be achieved on a shoestring budget,” he said.Giving new life to recycled fashionOne of the students involved in June’s fashion runway event, Asha Larkin, is a convert to using recycled materials since graduating from the program.Part of the design process was visiting Lifeline’s export centre in Newcastle, where 5–6 tonnes of discarded fashion is processed per week.

Lifeline’s Jason Fox is also practicing what he’s preaches.”I made a commitment at the beginning of this year — and a lot of people are doing it — that I am actually not going to buy brand new fashion this year,” Mr Fox said. “I like fashion, I buy fashion all the time — and this year I’ve only bought one pair of shoes new which is remarkable for me.” “Shopping at Lifeline helps to protect the environment and save local lives.”Mr Fox said Lifeline also played an important role in the war against waste, particularly the war on fast fashion.Earlier this year Lifeline Newcastle and Central Coast teamed up with the Hunter Institute of Fashion to create a series of one-off couture pieces.The garments were designed and constructed by students using materials sourced exclusively from recycled Lifeline products.Changing youth perception of vintage fashion

Rowing club defies the odds to stay afloat for 150 years

When the club holds its sesquicentennial celebration on Saturday, it will be honouring not just its longevity but its survival.The clubhouse was condemned and set to be demolished before a last-ditch rescue effort and extensive restoration in the 1990s. (ABC Radio Perth: Emma Wynne)
The club has long since upgraded the bathrooms for both men and women, and women are now in the majority of the club’s 200-plus membership.There is no shortage of people who share Mr Vos’s love of rowing.”They can’t all come down at once, so we have to stagger the training,” he said.”It’s a busy place, the crews all have to go off at separate times.”‘I’ve had a lot of fun along the way.’Mr Vos’s rowing heyday was in the 1970s, when he was a competitive rower at state and national level, but for him rowing is mostly about enjoyment, not competition. “So, when the school introduced rowing it was a godsend; I liked boats, I like water, and I thought this is for me. It kept operating, how it did I don’t know. “There was nobody here with any building experience and it fell into further and further disrepair. (ABC Radio Perth: Emma Wynne)
Mr Vos joined the club as a 15-year-old schoolboy in 1964 and has never stopped rowing since.”I tried other sports and because I had to wear specs, I’d come home with my glasses in pieces in a brown paper bag. “They managed to get enough money together and support, including from the Department of Employment and Training,” Mr Vos said.”They brought the young kids down here with tradesmen and rebuilt it.”Just in time for its 150th birthday, the club has had another facelift, with a new roof, railings and a complete repainting funded by the Heritage Council. I just leapt into it.”The last rowing shed on the city foreshoreThis month the club is celebrating its 150th birthday and status as the last rowing club left on the Perth city foreshore.It was the first rowing club in Western Australia, founded at a time when the river was busy with boats of all sizes.The clubhouse over the water, in front of the Supreme Court, was built in 1905 and is the oldest river building in the city.

When the building opened in 1905 it was reached by a bridge over river shale. I got in with a good group of guys and once you win a couple of races, you are blooded, and you think, ‘Well, I can do anything’.”I represented the state twice for the King’s Cup race in 1977 and 1979. “Boards were falling off the sides and it looked terrible.”

The clubhouse, pictured in 1993, had been close to demolition before a rescue effort by members. “I also tried out for the Australian championships — I never quite made that grade but that’s alright, I’ve had a lot of fun along the way.”

It’s not the only major change Mr Vos has seen since 1964.When he first joined, there were no women or girls rowing.”I first joined the club in 1964 as a schoolboy and not long after that they decided: ‘Well, why can’t the girls row too?'”And immediately the number of young guys coming down was doubled.”Archaic facilities now modernisedMr Vos said he suspected the first group of girls to join the club didn’t last long due to facilities that were “pretty archaic for them” at the time. “You hear the sirens, see people running along here, jogging and bike riding.”

John Vos has been rowing since 1964 and “loved every minute”. “When we were here in the ’70s, part of the corner of the building had fallen down,” Mr Vos recalled.”It was kept together with clamps and bits of wood. (Supplied: WA Rowing Club/Darryl Salisbury)
Saved from demolitionWhen the nearby Swan River Rowing Club building was condemned and pulled down, it seemed likely that Westies, as the club is known, would go the same way.But a member who was a construction engineer put forward a rescue plan and the committee swung into action. Freezing mornings, dim light, cold water — for John Vos it’s the best time of the day and has been for the past 53 years.”When you are rowing, on the river, you can feel the city come alive,” the West Australian Rowing Club life member says of early mornings on the Swan River.

And he has no plans to stop rowing.”I have got three mates who I go rowing with just on a social basis three times a week,” he said. “We are called the Grumpies because I think the young ones think we are grumpy old men because we are always complaining about how they treat stuff,” he said, laughing.”I’d hope I could go on as long as I can, absolutely, as long as the parking costs don’t go up too much.”You have to come down very early to miss the parking meters now; that hurts.” Photo:
Westies, as the club is known, has just had another significant renovation. “I was very lucky.
