7 Worlds Collide (Live At The St. James)

2001

  • 01 Anytime
  • Anytime
    Neil Finn

    I see a dog upon the road
    Running hard to catch a cat
    My car is pulling to a halt
    The truck behind me doesn’t know
    Everything is in the balance
    Of a moment I can’t control
    And your sympathetic strings
    Are like the stirrings in my soul

    I could go at anytime
    There’s nothing safe about this life
    I could go at anytime

    Find the meaning of the act
    Remember how it goes
    Every time you take the water
    And you swim against the flow
    The world is all around us
    The days are flying past
    And fear is so contagious
    But I’m not afraid to laugh

    I could go at anytime
    There’s nothing safe about this life
    I could go at anytime

    Anytime (come without warning)
    Anytime (it could be so easy)
    A walk in the park (or maybe when I’m sleeping)
    Anytime (see the clouds come over)
    Rain or shine (I make you so unhappy)
    Lets make it right

    I feel like I’m in love
    With a stranger I’ll never know
    Although you’re still a mystery
    I’m so glad I’m not alone

    I could go at anytime
    There’s nothing safe about this life
    Make it so easy to fly in the night
    I could go at anytime
    I could go at anytime

  • 02 Take A Walk
  • Take A Walk
    Neil Finn

    Time to slip out my back door
    Sunrise dancing on my wall
    Heading down off beaten tracks
    Try to get that feeling back

    I could take a walk again
    Up a mountain to a stream
    Standing on the open rock
    Looking out over the sea
    Funny when we move ahead
    Never worry what we leave behind
    I could always find some peace
    In the back of beyond

    Kind voice from yesterday
    Give love fill up every space
    But now I laugh at simple truth
    Sneer and frown like we all do

    When the long night awakes
    With memories a midnight feast
    Feel the boy in me escape
    There’s a field of frost beneath my feet
    Run, never tire, run boy, forever and ever

    I could take a walk again
    Up a mountain to a stream
    Standing on the open rock
    Looking out over the sea
    Funny when we move ahead
    Never worry what we leave behind
    Remember what a friend of mine said
    You gotta be kind

  • 03 The Climber
  • The Climber
    Neil Finn

    Beside me now are strangers to my eyes
    They might be getting crazy, might be wise
    Were stranded either way in such a lonely place
    I’m looking out for you among the flies
    That wait in line for days on end
    And nights so cold and always so intense

    I try to reach the top most every day
    In hope I turn my face up to the sky
    The cover hangs so low, I see no sign of life
    Nothing springs to mind
    Among the flies that wait in line
    For days on end and nights so cold, always so intense

    Here we are
    There’s a smile between us and it’s going on

    You and me have always gotten through
    Anyone can tell you that it’s true
    You feel it every time, you drive away from home
    The headlights hypnotize and they take you off towards the sea
    Into the night, you run away with thoughts you cannot hide

    Vacant eyes can’t describe my hunger
    For your billowing arms

    Mother, I can’t help thinking of you
    Take this dull ache away

  • 04 Loose Tongue
  • Loose Tongue
    Neil Finn/Jim Moginie

    Remember my loose tongue
    Forget what I just said
    I’d crawl over broken glass
    If we could start again
    Before our plans were made
    When the world was young
    The house is falling down
    Because of my loose tongue

    Shouldn’t say so much
    Shouldn’t talk so loud
    No sooner on your lips
    Than it’s all over town
    In all our given days
    How many gone to waste
    A good man has been hung
    Because of my loose tongue

    Your skin is changing its hue
    Your guard is coming down fast
    Looks like someone I knew
    Uncovered happiness at last

    All the wagging tongues
    Too much information
    In the future now
    Under massive doubt
    The papers on the street
    Get trampled under feet
    And they settled for a princely sum
    Goodwill is coming down
    And when it rains
    Your well is full

    He’s only halfway through his life
    He’s only used up all his time

  • 08 Turn And Run
  • Turn and Run
    Neil Finn

    There’s a light overhead, overhead
    In the sky overhead, overhead
    And I’m with you now in body and music and mind
    And we’re silent and still
    Everything’s so out of control tonight

    In a plane that’s flying fast
    At a speed that makes me cry
    Have you left me now
    To trouble that won’t let me lie
    I’m awake all the time
    You know where I stand
    Holding my plastic gun

    So turn and run
    You cold killers of innocence
    Against us there’s no defence
    Your flash and your wickedness
    You can’t break our love

    Tie my hands behind my back
    Put a gag on top of my mouth
    But I won’t give you up
    ‘Til silverware’s covered in dust
    And my shoes fall apart
    And the tumbleweed runs
    Over my desert heart

    So turn and run
    You cold killers of innocence
    Against us there’s no defence
    Your flash and your wickedness
    Will surely bring you down again

    Somehow we must stay afloat
    Won’t give in to the undertow
    Some things you will never know
    You can’t break our love
    You can pull us down
    But you can’t break our love

  • 09 Angels Heap
  • Angels Heap
    Neil Finn/Tim Finn

    News travels fast
    There’s an old wreck in the underpass
    Wine in a glass
    And a well travelled bed
    Down the length and breadth of the motorway
    Down the information highway

    I took a ride
    In an angels heap
    Yeah I took a ride
    And she took me away
    To where the hills are steep
    Yeah I took a ride

    In the still mind of a child
    There’s a live bird on her shoulder
    She could swallow a lie
    Like she’s drinking a flagon of beer
    I’ll never be the same again
    Let the black wheels fly over

    I took a ride
    In an angels heap
    And she took me away
    To where the air was sweet
    And she made me come alive
    In a red vinyl seat
    Yeah I took a ride

    Let the black wheels fly over

  • 10 Edible Flowers
  • Edible Flowers
    Tim Finn/Neil Finn/Noel Crombie/Nigel Griggs/Eddie Rayner

    Everybody wants the same thing
    Everybody wants the same thing
    To see another birthday
    Look at all the pretty numbers
    Look at all the pretty numbers
    Scattered on the calenders
    I can see my reflection
    I can see my reflection
    In the shop window

    Who owns that space,
    Declare it if you dare tonight
    Don’t let the moment pass
    Until another day
    Bright lights dissolve
    Like sugar deep inside you now
    It all ends up the same somehow
    I’m hardly here at all

    All the trash and the treasure
    All the trash and the treasure
    All the pain and the pleasure
    Taste the edible flowers
    Taste the edible flowers
    Scattered in the salad days

    Who owns that space
    Declare it if you dare tonight
    Don’t let the moment pass
    Until another day
    Bright lights dissolve
    Like sugar deep inside you now
    And still the rain keeps coming down
    I’m hardly here at all
    And everything’s gone quiet now
    I’m hardly here at all

  • 13 She Will Have Her Way
  • She Will Have Her Way
    Neil 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

  • 15 Weather With You
  • Weather With You
    Neil Finn/Tim Finn

    Walking ’round the room singing
    Stormy Weather
    At fifty seven Mt. Pleasant St.
    Now it’s the same room but everything’s different
    You can fight the sleep but not the dream

    Things ain’t cooking in my kitchen
    Strange affliction wash over me
    Julius Caesar and the Roman Empire
    Couldn’t conquer the blue sky

    There’s a small boat made of china
    Going nowhere on the mantelpiece
    Do I lie like a lounge room lizard
    Or do I sing like a bird released

    [Chorus:]
    Everywhere you go you always take the weather with you

    (Repeat)

  • 16 Paradise (Wherever You Are)
  • Paradise (Wherever You Are)
    Neil Finn/Tim Finn

    Endless travel
    Can’t remember where I’ve been
    Lying in this hammock
    Feeling tragic
    Like the ones you hear so much about
    Can’t wait to tell you what I’ve seen

    Skim the water
    South Atlantic ocean grey
    Always searching for his mate

    Lonely albatross
    Cannot find them
    The ones you care so much about
    They’re lost and you’re losing your way

    Too much pressure
    Gin and tonic water
    They’ll forget you
    The ones you care so much about
    They’ll surrender to the need
    Paradise wherever you are

  • 17 Don’t Dream It’s Over
  • Don’t Dream It’s Over
    Neil 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
