(Live)

2013

01. Don't Stand So Close to the Window
P. Kelly, A. McGregor

02. Four Seasons In One Day
N. Finn, T. Finn

Four seasons in one day
Lying in the depths of your imagination
Worlds above and worlds below
The sun shines on the black clouds hanging over the domain

Even when you’re feeling warm
The temperature could drop away
Like four seasons in one day

Smiling as the shit comes down
You can tell a man from what he has to say
Everything gets turned around
And I will risk my neck again, again

You can take me where you will
Up the creek and through the mill
Like all the things you can’t explain
Four seasons in one day

Blood dries up
Like rain, like rain
Fills my cup
Like four seasons in one day

It doesn’t pay to make predictions
Sleeping on an unmade bed
Finding out wherever there is comfort there is pain
Only one step away
Like four seasons in one day

Blood dries up
Like rain, like rain
Fills my cup
Like four seasons in one day



03. Before Too Long
P. Kelly

04. She Will Have Her Way
N. Finn

I might be old but I’m someone new she said
I’m so sore that I could cry always
In the night lay your tired arms

She will have her way
Somehow I will still believe her

She’s the life I’ve been frightened of seems like
Deathly silence and especially the dark
Feels like I am heavy and my spirit has died

She will have her way
Somehow I will still believe her
She will have her way
One day I will come back

Still no end in sight
Though I travel far and wide
A dying man is doing time
Thinker, soldier terrified

And she will have her way
Somehow I will still believe her
She will have her way
One day I will come back

She will have her way



05. Not The Girl You Think You Are
N. Finn

You’re not the girl you think you are, no no
They’re not his shoes under your bed, yeah yeah
He’ll take you places in his car
That you won’t forget, no

All the people that you know
Will turn their heads as you go by
But you’ll be hard to recognise
With the top down and the wind blowing, blowing

He won’t deceive you
Or tell you the truth
Woman, he’ll be no trouble
He won’t write you letters
Full of excuses
C’mon, believe you have one in a million

You’re not the girl you think you are
There’s someone standing in your place
The bathroom mirror makes you look tall
But it’s all in your head, in your head

He won’t deceive you
Or tell you the truth
Woman, he’ll be no trouble
He won’t write you letters
Full of excuses
C’mon, believe you have one in a million

He won’t deceive you
Or tell you the truth
C’mon, believe you have one
You’re not the girl you think you are
Believe you have one
You’re not the girl you think you are
Believe you have one
You’re not the girl you think you are



06. For The Ages
P. Kelly, D. Kelly

07. Sinner
Neil Finn/Marius de Vries

See it anyone got my eyes got my face
Sing it everyone got my nose got my blood
Conscience plays upon me now
Safe until my luck runs out
Cuckoos call, pendulum swings
I thought you knew everything
Lift my hands make the cross

Sinner I have never learned
Beginner I cannot return
Forever I must walk this earth
Like some forgotten soldier

Those things I should keep to myself
But I feel somehow strangely compelled
Under moonlight I stood wild and naked
Felt no shame just my spirit awakened

Sinner got my eyes got my face

Fireball drop from the sky
All my dreams have come to pass
Where's my faith is it lost
Can't see it till you cast it off

Sinner there is no such thing
Beginner I have learned to sing
Forever I must walk this earth
Like some forgotten soldier

Today I am still disconnected
To the face that I saw in the clouds
And the closest I get to contentment
Is when all of the barriers come down



08. Won't Give In
N. Finn, T. Finn

If you call me up, I’ll say a few words
But I’ll try not to speak too long
Please to be kind and I’ll try to explain
I’ll probably get it all wrong
What does it mean when you
Promise someone
That no matter how hard
Or whatever may come

It means that I won’t give in
Won’t give in, won’t give in
‘Cause everyone I love is here
Play it once then we disappear.

Once in a while I return to the fold
With the people I call my own
Even if time is just a flicker of light
And we all have to die alone
What does it mean when you
Belong to someone
When you’re born with a name
When you carry it on

It means that I won’t give in
Won’t give in, won’t give in
‘Cause everyone I love is here
All at once
They show you how to get real

Come on now, come on now
Can you feel it
I can see it in you
Come on now, come on now
Reveal it
Turn around won’t ya
The right time, the right place
Right now
Turn around

A chance is made, a chance is lost
I carry myself to the edge of the earth

It means that I won’t give in
Won’t give in, won’t give in
‘Cause everyone I love is here
Say it once
Just say it
And disappear



09. Careless
P. Kelly

10. Leaps And Bounds
P. Kelly, D. Kelly

11. Only Talking Sense
T. Finn, N. Finn

There’s a wild thing in the woodshed
And it’s keeping me awake at night
A devil in the closet
And a feeling I’d prefer to hide
He is religion
He won’t hear me when I cry for help
He has a vision of me
But I am somebody else

We talk the pillow
There are times when I’m tied up to the fence
Only talking sense

There’s a mirror lake before me
But I’m frozen when it’s time to jump
It’s like maybe I’m afraid of what I’ll find
When independence comes
You steel my shadow
You make my blood run dry

We are true only when we talk the pillow
There are times when I’m tied up to the fence
Only talking sense

Did you suffer like a child
That’s why you want to make me cry
You are afraid of me
That’s why you’re so unkind

You won’t deny it
When your child is tied up to the fence
And I’m only talking sense
Lonely when we talk the pillow
And your child is messed up in the head
I’m only talking sense



12. New Found Year
P. Kelly, D. Kelly

13. Into Temptation
N. Finn

You opened up your door
I couldn’t believe my luck
You in your new blue dress
Taking away my breath
The cradle is soft and warm
Couldn’t do me no harm
You’re showing me how to give

Into temptation
Knowing full well the earth will rebel
Into temptation

A muddle of nervous words
Could never amount to betrayal
The sentence is all my own
The price is to watch it fail
As I turn to go
You looked at me for half a second
With an open invitation for me to go

Into temptation
Knowing full well the earth will rebel
Into temptation
Safe in the wide open arms of hell

We can go sailing in
Climb down, lose yourself when you linger long
Into temptation
Right where you belong

The guilty get no sleep
In the last slow hours of morning
Experience is cheap
I should’ve listened to the warning
But the cradle is soft and warm

Into temptation
Knowing full well the earth will rebel
Into your wide open arms
No way to break the spell
Don’t tell



14. You Can Put Your Shoes Under My Bed
P. Kelly

15. Private Universe
N. Finn

No time, no place to talk about the weather
The promise of love is hard to ignore
You said the chance wasn't getting any better
The labour of love is ours to endure

The highest branch on the apple tree
Was my favourite place to be
I could hear them breaking free
But they could not see me

I will run for shelter
Endless summer lift the curse
It feels like nothing matters
In our private universe

I have all I want, is that simple enough?
A whole lot more I'm thinking of
Every night about six o'clock
The birds come back to the palm to talk
They talk to me, birds talk to me
If I go down on my knees

I will run for shelter
Endless summer lift the curse
It feels like nothing matters
In our private universe
Feels like nothing matters
In our private universe

And it's a pleasure that I have known
And it's a treasure that I have gained
And it's a pleasure that I have known

It's a tight squeeze but I won't let go
Time is on the table and the dinner's cold

I will run for shelter
Endless summer lift the curse
It feels like nothing matters
In our private universe



16. Dumb Things
P. Kelly

17. One Step Ahead
N. Finn

One step ahead of you
Stay in motion, keep an open mind
Love is a race won by two
Your emotion, my solitude
If I stop I could lose my head
So I’m losing you instead
Either way I’m confused
You slow me down, what can I do?
There’s one particular way I have to choose

One step ahead of you
Always someone makes it hard to move
She says, Boy I want you to stay
But I save it all for another day
If I stop I could lose my head
But I’m ready for romance
Either way I’m confused
I don’t know what I’m s’posed to do
I can only stay
One step ahead of you

Stop, I confess sometimes
I don’t know where I’m going
Part of me stays with you,
I’m slowing down, what can I do
It’s hard to stay one step ahead of you

One step ahead of you
Time is running out
Catching up with you
One step ahead of you
When I hold you close
Can I really lose?
One step ahead
Only one step ahead
She’s one step ahead of you



18. Deeper Water
P. Kelly, R. Jacobs

19. Better Be Home Soon
N. Finn

Somewhere deep inside
Something’s got a hold on you
And it’s pushing me aside
See it stretch on forever

I know I’m right
For the first time in my life
That’s why I tell you
You’d better be home soon

Stripping back the coats
Of lies and deception
Back to nothingness
Like a week in the desert

I know I’m right
For the first time in my life
That’s why I tell you
You’d better be home soon

So don’t say no
Don’t say nothing’s wrong
Cause when you get back home
Maybe I’ll be gone

It would cause me pain
If we were to end it
But I could start again
You can depend on it

I know I’m right
For the first time in my life
That’s why I tell you
You’d better be home soon
That’s why I tell you
You’d better be home soon



20. How To Make Gravy
P. Kelly

21. Distant Sun
N. Finn

Tell me all the things you would change
I don’t pretend to know what you want
When you come around and spin my top
Time and again, time and again

No fire where I lit my spark
I am not afraid of the dark
Where your words devour my heart
And put me to shame, put me to shame

When your seven worlds collide
Whenever I am by your side
And dust from a distant sun
Will shower over everyone

Still so young to travel so far
Old enough to know who you are
Wise enough to carry the scars
Without any blame, there’s no one to blame

It’s easy to forget what you learned
Waiting for the thrill to return
Feeling your desire burn
And drawn to the flame

When your seven worlds collide
Whenever I am by your side
Dust from a distant sun
Will shower over everyone
Dust from a distant sun
Will shower over everyone

And I’m lying on the table
Washed out in a flood
Like a Christian fearing vengeance from above
I don’t pretend to know what you want
But I offer love

Seven worlds will collide
Whenever I am by your side
Dust from a distant sun
Will shower over everyone

As time slips by
As time slips by



22. Winter Coat
P. Kelly

23. Fall At Your Feet
N. Finn

I’m really close tonight
And I feel like I’m moving inside her
Lying in the dark
An’ I think that I’m beginning to know her
Let it go
I’ll be there when you call

And whenever I fall at your feet
You let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I touch your slow turning pain

You’re hiding from me now
There’s something in the way that you’re talking
Words don’t sound right
But I hear them all moving inside you
Go, I’ll be waiting when you call

And whenever I fall at your feet
You let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I touch your slow turning pain

The finger of blame has turned upon itself
And I’m more than willing to offer myself
Do you want my presence or need my help
Who knows where that might lead

I fall
Whenever I fall at your feet
You let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I fall
Whenever I fall


24. To Her Door
P. Kelly

25. Don't Dream It's Over
N. Finn

There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There’s a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you’ll never see the end of the road
While you’re travelling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m towing my car, there’s a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there’s no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V page

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m walking again to the beat of a drum
And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
Don’t ever let them win



26. Message To My Girl
N. 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
