The Church is an Australian rock band formed in Canberra  in 1980. Initially associated with New Wave and the neo-psychedelic sound of the mid 1980s, their music later became more reminiscent of "progressive rock," featuring long instrumental jams and complex guitar interplay.

"Under the Milky Way" was written by the band's vocalist and bassist, Steve Kilbey, and his then-girlfriend Karin Jansson. The song was originally released on The Church's Starfish album and won the Australian ARIA award for best song in 1989.




The Church - Under the Milky Way

Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty
Sound of their breath fades with the light
I think about the loveless fascination
Under the milky way tonight

Lower the curtain down in Memphis
Lower the curtain down all right
I got no time for private consultation
Under the milky way tonight

(chorus)
Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

And its something quite peculiar
Something thats shimmering and white
Leads you here despite your destination
Under the milky way tonight

(chorus)
Under the milky way tonight.
