Carried Away
Neil Finn

Breathless home with excitement
I’ll kick my shoes off
Get into the groove
Dancing I drift with my eyes closed
Hearing your voice again
Singing that strange melody

I get slowly carried away
Slowly carried away

All day I can hear her calling
That woman I’ve never met
Keeps leading me on

I get slowly carried away
Slowly carried away
I get slowly carried away
Slowly carried away
I get slowly carried away
Slowly carried away

I’m told that it’s evergreen
I’ve listened but never seen
I’ve laid awake all night
Just putting the whole world right
It’s terrible but it’s true
I get carried away with you

Holy Smoke
Neil Finn

Holy smoke good God almighty
Vandals, murderers and thieves
I just woke up with the strangest feeling
There’s someone here with me

[chorus:]
Feel my heart
The fear of God written in my face
In the dark
Over there by the fireplace
The shadows fall much too close for comfort

Here all night the sun deserts you
Dark skies overhead
Candles lit and measures taken
Brave new worlds we tread

[chorus]

It’s all I can do to keep from running away
Get me out of this place
Too young to lose
I’ve been sleeping with one eye open too long

[chorus]

Late In Rome
Neil Finn / Rod Murdoch

Tired eyes remember the spotlights
Tired eyes remember those late nights
With ladies on my arm, nights of passion
Is it too long ago and you could hear them say

Serge, he’s a dancer
Knows each dramatic pose
Rolls the ladies they fall over
His future’s in his toes

Who of you would know me now
You lovers once cherished and gone
But I’ve slept late in Rome before
And my story many times been sung
.
Serge, he’s a dancer
Knows each dramatic pose.
Rolls the ladies they fall over
His future’s in his toes

Where are you now, flirting lover
You are with a young man it seems
And all those times you had together
A part in his playful scene

Serge, he’s a dancer
Knows each dramatic pose
Rolls the ladies they fall over
His future’s in his toes
