I Got You
Neil Finn

I got you – that’s all I want
I won’t forget – that’s a whole lot
I don’t go out – not now that you’re in
Sometimes we shout – but that’s no problem

I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I’m not lyin’

Look at you – you’re a pageant
You’re everything – that I’ve imagined
Somethings wrong – I feel uneasy
You show me – tell me you’re not teasin’

I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I’m not lyin’
I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, can you tell me you’re not lyin’

There’s no doubt – not when I’m with you
When I’m without – I stay in my room
Where do you go – I get no answer
You’re always out – it gets on my nerves

I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I’m not lying
(But) I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, can you tell me you’re not lyin’
I don’t know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I’m not lying

What’s The Matter With You
Neil Finn

What’s the matter with you?
Look down on everything we do
I really wonder if you see today like I do
What’s the matter with you?

What’s the matter with you?
You don’t look cool in shades of blue
I really wonder if you see today like I do
What’s the matter with you?

When I got up today I felt so much brighter
My head was swimming with delight and I told her
But she said “What’s so good about today?”
And she walked away
She’s down in the dumps without a reason why

What’s the matter with you?
Look down on everything we do
I really wonder if you see today like I do
What’s the matter with you?

Gonna keep an eye on you, I’ll be your dictator
So you better buck up or I’ll deal with you later
So beat the drum and let the trumpet blow
You gotta let go
In the heat of the moment you reap what you sow

What’s the matter with you?
Look down on everything we do
I really wonder if you see today like I do
What’s the matter with you?

The worried look that’s on your face makes you older
You realise that things have never been better
Yes sir, the weather’s clear
There’s Eskimos, in summer clothes
I don’t suppose you’d like to laugh with me

What’s the matter with you?
You look down on everything we do
I really wonder if you see today like I do
What’s the matter with you?

Missing Person
Neil Finn

Home too sweet home,
It just occurred to me
To be on my own,
In search of bitter treats
I get so removed
But you never notice it
Step in my shoes,
You’ll see that I don’t fit

I walk home,
The wrong way,
Hoping I’ll go astray
I’d like to be a missing person

Eyes open wide,
But all I see is black
You thought I was alright
Just wait ’til you get back
There’ll be no one home
And they’ll stay up all night
Everyone I know,
I’m wishing you goodnight

I walk home,
The wrong way,
Hoping I’ll go astray
I’d like to be a missing person
I wander the highways,
Asleep in your doorways
I’m wanted but I’m a missing person

(Missing Person)
(Missing Person)

And I fly by night,
Fighting to get away
Under neon lights
I slip down alley ways
Only safe and sound
When silence brings a chill
Now my back is turned
I know I can’t stand still

I walk home the wrong way,
This time I’ll go astray
I like to be a missing person
I wander the highways
Asleep in your doorways
I’m wanted but I’m a missing person

Missing person,
missing person,
missing person…
