02. Message To My Girl (vocal by Neil Finn)
Neil Finn

I don’t want to say I love you
That would give away too much
It’s hip to be detached and precious
The only thing you feel is vicious.

I don’t want to say I want you
Even though I want you so much
It’s wrapped up in conversation
It’s whispered in a hush
Though I’m frightened by the word
Think it’s time I made it heard

No more empty self possession
Vision swept under the mat
It’s no New Year’s resolution
It’s more than that

Now I wake up happy
Warm in a lover’s embrace
No one else can touch us
While we’re in this place
So I’ll sing it to the world
This simple message to my girl

No more empty self possession
Vision swept under the mat
It’s no New Years’ resolution
It’s more than that

Though I’m frightened by the word
Think it’s time I made it heard
So I’ll sing it to the world
This simple message to my girl

No more empty self possession
Vision swept under the mat
It’s no New Year’s resolution
It’s more than that

No, there’s nothing quite as real
As the touch of your sweet hand
I can’t spend the rest of my life
Buried in the sand

13. Strait Old Line (vocal by Neil Finn)
Neil Finn

This could be heaven, or this could be hell
Life could be falling down a bottomless well
I stumble to the left, I stumble to the right
I fumble for the switch of a disconnected light
(Stay with it) don’t let temptation be your load
(Stay with it) there are bandits on the road

Don’t look to the left
Don’t look to the right
Just follow that strait old line
Don’t look to the left
Don’t look to the right
Just follow that strait old line

The road of ambition, is a casualty trail
Press gangs wait to ambush
The weak and weary (stay with it)
But I had to explore the light and dark
To see the sharp and flat
There’s a hundred or more good reasons
Not to ever turn your back

Don’t look to the left
Don’t look to the right
Just follow that strait old line
Don’t look to the left (look to the left)
Don’t look to the right (look to the right)
Just follow that strait old line

[repeat chorus til fade]

 

15. Voices (vocal by Neil Finn)
Neil Finn

Wander through the library
Volumes of the deceased
There’s no happy endings
History has been cruel
Feel the blood of ages
Flowing through my veins
Still there is no reason
I wonder what’s coming

I hear voices
Leading me on
The wise and the strong

Wander through the forest
Losing track of time
Lessons in green and gold
Been growing on for years

I hear voices
Leading me on
Urging me on

I hear voices
Leading me on
Urging me on
The wise and the strong
