From Wikipedia:

Wolfmother were an Australian hard rock band. Formed in 2000 by vocalist and guitarist Andrew Stockdale, bassist and keyboardist Chris Ross, and drummer Myles Heskett, the band later became a four-piece and most recently a five-piece composed of Stockdale, Ian Peres (bass, keyboards), Elliott Hammond (keyboards, percussion), Vin Steele (rhythm guitar) and Hamish Rosser (drums). Wolfmother released their self-titled debut album in October 2005, which reached number three on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart. The album was also a critical success, winning the 2005 J Award and the 2006 ARIA Awards for Best Breakthrough Album and Best Rock Album. "Woman", a single from the album, won the band a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2007.





Lyrics:

I saw the colossal landscape 
Of which i never was a part 
It was a magical day 
Of which i'd never seen before 

The first time i saw colossal girl 
The first time i saw colossal girl 

Such glowing mountains before us 
Pillars of life all fade away 
Of all the things i need to say girl 
All of these words are in my way 

The first time i saw colossal girl 

Well she's running to the hills again 
Can you tell me if she'll ever return 
She must be mother natures child 
Cause she's runnin' to the call of the wild 
She's talkin' to the trees again 
Tellin' me that she's one of them 
Lookin' at the bird in the tree 
Though she's never gonna notice me 

Oh is my love a confession 
Will i just put it back today 
If I had love left to give you 
Would you still throw it away 

The first time i saw colossal girl 
The first time i saw colossal girl 

Well she's running to the hills again 
Can you tell me if she'll ever return 
She must be mother natures child 
Cause she's runnin' to the call of the wild 
She's talkin' to the trees again 
Tellin' me that she's one of them 
Lookin' at the bird in the tree 
Though she's never gonna notice me 

Can you remember the first time we met 
Living together in colossal times 
Some things are given with no reason why 
Living together in colossal times 

I'm just a gypsy with wondering eyes 
I'll tell you secrets that send you to sleep 
All i can give you is all of my love 
These are the things i can give you to keep
