About the songEdit
No demos exist for the song, suggesting it was one of the last songs to be written for the album. It is also the only song from Big Thing that has never been performed live.
"Hi Katy. I think "Land" was one of the prettiest songs off of Big Thing, and the most overlooked too. Who wrote it? Thanks, Lauren."
- "Hi Lauren. Land: Lyrics and melody by Simon, music by Simon and Nick. Thanks for the question - I love that song too!"
- "Land" - 6:12

Away from here Away from here Away from you Stay for me Stay for me Stay for me Baby I'm really sorry To break your dream When it's so early Headlights On the window pane They're getting lost In the light of day Tomorrow is today And soon my ship will sail Away from here To walk a howling sealane Stay for me Your love is life For love is land Baby Just hear my story Before I leave Before we write the end Standing Across the ocean stream I need to know I'll need your country then Tomorrow and today You keep my landfall safe Away from here (Away from here, away from here) To walk a howling sealane (Away from you) Stay for me (Stay for me, stay for me) I need your love to land Away from here (Away from here, away from here) To walk a howling sealane Stay for me (Stay for me, stay for me) Your love is life For love is land Away from here (Away from here, away from here) To walk a howling sealane (Away from you) Stay for me (Stay for me, stay for me) I need your love to land (Stay for me) Away from here (Away from here, away from here) To walk a howling sealane (Away from you) Stay for me (Stay for me, stay for me) Your love is life For love is land Love is land Love is land...
