Tell Me What You Want
Neil Finn/Sharon Finn/Sean Donnelly

Ohh i want to break it down
Illuminate and stretch it out
So turn on the switch
You have a way
A little flick of the wrist
So mystical i can’t resist
And now i have to ask
If i can get some

Tell me what you want
Show me how to do it
Tell me what you need
I can do anything

I got an itch i can’t scratch
I feel numb every time i have to ask
It takes the magic away
It’s a game
As a matter of fact
The curious way i love to act
Its what the devil has done
He made me want some

Tell me what you want
Show me how to do it
Tell me what you need
I can do anything to you
To you, to you
Ooh we must be clever
Ooh we got together
Ooh one way or another
Ooh we got it covered

Can’t Put It Down Until It Ends
Neil Finn/Sharon Finn

You are the one who disappears
Lost in the slumber of the years
A pillow falls out of thin air
Your tears are mine, I'll find you there
Do you still remember what it meant
You can't put it down until it ends
When you wake you pick it up again

People frozen in sweet repose
Under mountains of fallen snow
Shall I make you my offer known
For the life you spend with me
Will never end,
I'll see you home tonight alright

Fear is in orbit around the sun
And years go by, you feel so numb
Just breathing out with good intent
You can't put it down until it ends
When you wake you pick it up again

People frozen in sweet repose
Under mountains of fallen snow
Shall I make you my offer known
For then life you spend with me
Will never end I'll see you home tonight alright

These Are Conditions
Neil Finn/Sharon Finn

These are conditions in my head
These are conditions in my head
Hung upon the day
Heavy as a cloud about to rain
These are conditions in my head
These are conditions in my head
These are conditions
Funny how dreams are found
In real life, here and now
And so captured are the days
Caught between survival and escape
These are conditions in my head
These are conditions in my head
The silence of the night will come again
The saddest one alive will love again
High above the planes
I can hear the buzzing in my brain
These are conditions in my head
Hear the howling sun
Hear the howling sun

From A Friend To A Friend
Neil Finn/Sharon Finn

The stranger is coming
He’s driving a commodore
The headlamp in the driveway
The welcome from a friend to a friend

Feel so nervous that i might succumb
Ohh the magic one
Push it to the edge of oblivion
Ohh the magic one
In a hotel on union hill
Ohh the magic one
Gotta keep moving cos i can’t stand still
Ohh the magic one

The saviour is coming
The future anonymous
The present arriving
Gift wrapped
From a friend to a friend

Feel so nervous that i might succumb
Ooh the magic one
Push it to the edge of oblivion
Ooh the magic one
In a hotel on union hill
Ooh the magic one

A card on the doorstep
From a friend to a friend
The sound of her footsteps
From a friend to a friend
And someone is calling
From a friend to a friend
You’ll stop me from falling
From a friend to a friend

In walked a stranger
He was a messenger

Golden Child
Neil Finn/Sharon Finn

The right way to breathe
Amongst the leaves
Always to move and lighten
The armour of youth
Youth are people too
They roar like lions
Childlike underneath
There lies the need
The right way to be
Behind the scenes
Daily to feed and water
The flower of youth
Youth are people too

You dance around it
The golden child
You try to hold it
But he slips right out of your arms
And you try to mend me
But i won’t be led
And we end up making,
A deal to stay awake, just awake

Daylight
Neil Finn/Sharon Finn/Sean Donnelly

Give you some of my love
Lemme take your mind off
Trouble is you're tied up
I put you in my dream
You can play that scene
Second place to noone
say goodnight to the burning sun
Crystalising one thing left undone
Maybe things can grow
Never say die, just bring your eyes up close
How did we get fucked up
I want to give you my love
I want to give you my love
\You can give me a hug
You can give me the drugs
Or you can hand me the raygun
Diving in to the frozen lake
Reaching out to find a soul to take
Maybe things can grow
Never say die, just bring your eyes up close
And it could be enough
I want to give you my love
Daylight lets just see what it looks like
Hey man it's our right to have a good time
Daylight just don't tell me what it looks like
Hey man its our right to have a good time

Go Kart
Neil Finn/Sharon Finn

I wanna race
I wanna race you
I’m a racer
I’ve got a go kart
I’m on the starters gun again
I’m on a downhill run again

I hit the jump
I feel the bump
I’m the master
Of disaster
If your mind is up to it
If your heart can handle it
You can never go fast enough
You can never go fast enough

I look at you flying past
As i’m about to crash
And i don’t give in
Not easily anything
I saw the photo flash
As i flipped off the track
And its gonna be hard to stop
My wheels are falling off
My go kart

I never brake
Around the corner
Foot down accelerator
I’m on the starters gun again
I’m on the downhill run again
You can never go fast enough
You can never go fast enough

All you idiots
Are you ready yet
All you idiots
Are you ready for me

I saw you flying past
As i’m about to crash
But i don’t give in
Not easily anything
I saw the photo flash
As i flipped off the track
And its gonna be hard to stop
All my wheels are falling off
My go kart
I look at you flying past
As i’m about to crash
Over limit its hard to stop
All my wheels are falling off
My go kart

Dead Leg
Neil Finn/Sharon Finn/Sean Donnelly

That big man stumbles
One shot to the leg, left him for dead
That distant rumble
Welcome back to Earth, it's a difficult birth
Next time so humble
And now you understand the body of man

You can cover your tracks
But you can't turn back
And you went too far
You got a dead leg
And you got no limit
On your telephone plan
Tell all your friends
You got a dead leg

If I make contact
It wonâ't matter love if you're acting tough
So close to impact
Shock, or is it hurt, what comes first
When I stop breathing
Before a cry is heard, you know it's serious

You can cover your tracks
But you can't turn back
You went too far
You got a dead leg
And you got no limit
On your telephone plan
Tell all your friends
You got a dead leg

Sat round the table
The story comes to life, its so beautiful
A crimson halo
That hangs around your heart looking dangerous
Looking dangerous
Gaze upon us, keep us honest

You can cover your tracks
But you can't turn back
You went too far
You got a dead leg
And you got no limit
On your telephone plan
Tell all your friends
You got a dead leg

TNT For 2
Neil Finn/Sharon Finn

Make plans it always seems to rain on Friday
And the reason isn’t ours to say
Shake hands with hard men
Love the unexpected
If you get a chance today
Holding on pouring out
Hes a poor man now
All the pressure signs about to turn

Sleep tight, the angels
Make the man tread lightly
Has a vision when he lies awake
Martyr makes a virgin feel like hell in heaven
And theres madness in his eyes today

Holding on or pouring out
Hes a poor man now
All your pressure signs about to turn

Holding on, pouring out
Hes a poor man now
All the precious times about to burn

The Game We Love To play
Neil Finn/Sean Donnelly

He’s above the law
Unless the law is heaven sent
Just enough to cause
Boy to have an accident
How tempting to explore
What he cannot contemplate
Half shut window, rattles in the wind
Hear cats crying, strangled violins
Make shift houses, a blanket and 2 chairs
Monsters hiding, underneath the stairs
Its always been the game
We love to play

He’s outside the door
Like the rest of yesterday
Down beneath the floor
After birthday party games
The boy who wanted more
Wrapped him up in sellotape
Glass cicada
You know I'm just a shell
Friends with spider
Threw him down a well
Its always been the game
We love to play

Diamonds In Her Eyes
Neil Finn/Sharon Finn

Stone jazz invading my head
It’s hard to wake up
On Monday morning
The last impression I get
That you were laughing
When we first met
You had diamonds in your eyes
Diamonds in your eyes
A sign of peace on the door
Forever after in pain or pleasure
And still the answer is yes
It’s nice to be here
It’s nice to see you in my bed
There are diamonds in your eyes
And they sparkle in the light
When the moment comes alive
When she smiles I grant her wish
When she cries I give her a kiss
The deepest eyes are made of this
They steel my heart
For taking a risk
There are diamonds in her eyes
Shes in tears and so am I
And you laugh until you cry
When the moment comes alive
There are diamonds in her eyes
There are children in her tribe
And they sparkle in the light
When the moment comes alive
