Meg Washington (the voice of calypso) performs an acoustic version of her song ‘Lazarus Drug’ from ‘The Sign’

Watch a very special acoustic version of Meg Washington’s song ‘Lazarus Drug’ as featured in the closing moments of the 28 minute Bluey special, ‘The Sign.’

Meg’s song ‘Lazarus Drug’, one of the greatest songs written this century, rounds out the special episode of Bluey, The Sign. Recording it with her and Joff and the whole music team was one of the highlights of the whole Bluey experience. I know for her it was special too”.

Joe Brumm, Creator of Bluey

I wrote that song truly from my heart, in a very low place, in a very dark time … trying to reach for light … it’s pure love, and hope, and faith. When Joe first told me he wanted to put it in the show, I didn’t understand how it would work – a stylistic departure? Of course, I said yes anyway. I couldn’t ever have imagined the way he intended to use it, as such a beautiful statement, at the end. I feel beyond honoured, beyond gratitude, beyond my ability to express myself. I still can’t quite believe it.

lazarus Drug – lyrics

I feel it in the morning
I feel how low it lies
And then I hear you calling
And then I start to rise
I feel it in the morning
I feel how low it lies
And then I hear you call my name
And then I start to rise

And when I hear you calling
Like you were always there
I rise until I’m hanging
In the middle of the air

And when I hear you calling
I split like I’m a snake
With golden light like fingers
And then I start to break
Into a billion pieces
Oh, I shatter into constellations
Like I’ve never been more here
Like I completely disappear
I’m nothingness, but shining
And everywhere at once
I’m everything and everyone who is or ever was
And You’re nothingness, but shining
And everywhere at once
You’re everything where everyone who is or ever was, forever
