  • 01 Won’t Give In
  • Won’t Give In
    Neil Finn/Tim 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

  • 02 Nothing Wrong With You
  • Nothing Wrong With You
    Neil Finn/Tim Finn

    It’s a slow parade
    Down a dusty road
    We’ve learned to take abuse
    From devils we don’t know

    People who have lost all heart
    Look for someone else to blame
    You just keep on walking
    When they call you a dirty name

    All the mud in this town
    All the dirt in this world
    None of it sticks on you
    You shake it off
    ‘Cause you’re better than that
    And you don’t need it
    There’s nothing wrong with you

    The moment that we dread
    It comes all too soon
    Voices in your head
    Still carry on the tune

    Let the sound come in
    From the world outside
    You just keep on singing
    When they tell you filthy lies

    All the mud in this town
    All the dirt in this world
    None of it sticks on you
    You shake it off
    ‘Cause you’re better than that
    And you don’t need it
    There’s nothing wrong with you

    Remember how it made you hurt
    Even as you fight to go on
    Turn it into something else
    Turn it into something else

    All the mud in this town
    All the dirt in this world
    None of it sticks on you
    You shake it off
    ‘Cause you’re better than that
    And you don’t need it
    No, you don’t believe it

    All the mud in this town
    All the dirt in this world
    None of it sticks on you
    You shake it off
    ‘Cause you’re better than that
    And you don’t need it
    There’s nothing wrong with you
    There’s nothing wrong with you
    No
    I’ll walk along with you
    There’s nothing wrong with you
    There’s nothing wrong with you
    There’s nothing wrong with you

  • 03 Anything Can Happen
  • Anything Can Happen
    Neil Finn/Tim Finn

    The game has begun
    And I stumble to the front
    There’s no real control
    Of a random event

    And I will take my chances
    ‘Cause anything can happen
    I don’t believe it’s over
    ‘Cause anything can happen

    I could never give it up
    I could never relent
    And I can’t wait to see
    What will happen to me next

    And I will take my chances
    ‘Cause anything can happen
    I don’t believe it’s over
    ‘Cause anything can happen

    It doesn’t matter
    What we did wrong
    Makes no difference to me
    I see the light in your eyes
    And you’re dancing free

    And I’m coming round today
    To gather in the pieces
    Give in to the mystery

    And I will take my chances
    ‘Cause anything can happen
    Don’t believe it’s over
    ‘Cause anything can happen

    One day, I
    Someday, I

    Anything can happen
    Yeah, anything can happen

    I will make it shine
    I will make it rain sometime

  • 04 Luckiest Man Alive
  • Luckiest Man Alive
    Tim Finn/Neil Finn

    I know that it’s you behind
    Everything that I do
    And I wouldn’t try to hide
    Who I am from you

    It’s all me that you see
    I was ready for another try
    But I needed you to set me free
    Must be the luckiest man alive

    Man finds love in his life
    He’s the luckiest man alive
    Someone true by his side
    He’s the luckiest man alive
    She cut right through his foolish pride
    He’s the luckiest man alive

    I never had the time before
    Leaving things where they fell
    I was going door to door
    Always thinking I was somewhere else

    You saw me and what I could be
    And now I know what love is for
    It’s the only thing sets you free
    Must be the luckiest man alive

    Man finds love in his life
    He’s the luckiest man alive
    Someone true by his side
    He’s the luckiest man alive
    She cut right through
    His foolish pride
    He’s the luckiest man alive

    Feel the motion, it’s an endless ocean
    Rocking gently and moving deeply
    Feels like always been knocked sideways
    Over and over by the strength of your love

    Man finds love
    Man finds love in his life
    He’s the luckiest man alive
    Someone true
    Man finds love
    He’s the luckiest man alive
    Someone true

  • 05 Homesick
  • Homesick
    Neil Finn/Tim Finn

    At the shopping mall
    I’m surrounded by a parking lot
    Walking down the aisle
    I was thinking ’bout what I had lost
    On a Sunday morning
    My hometown is feeling strange to me
    In the stadium
    Dark forces are gathering

    Homesick, for the people that I live with
    Homesick, for the spirit I’m missing
    Homesick, for the country that I’m living in

    First you make me hungry
    Then you feed me something I don’t want
    There’s no satisfaction for an aching heart
    But life goes on
    And when I complain I get thrown out
    Of the restaurant

    Homesick, for the people that I live with
    Homesick, for the spirit I’m missing
    Homesick, for the country that I’m living in

    Homesick, for the people that I live with
    Homesick
    Homesick, for the country that I’m living in

  • 06 Disembodied Voices
  • Disembodied Voices
    Neil Finn/Tim Finn

    Talking with my brother when the lights went out
    Down the hallway forty years ago
    And what became much harder was so easy then
    Opening up and letting go

    Disembodied voices
    Floating in the air
    This place in the darkness
    Could be anywhere

    Talking to each other as we wait for sleep
    The angel in the detail soon arrives
    Spreading her wings over every memory
    And keeping all our hopes alive

    Disembodied voices
    Floating in the air
    This place in the darkness
    Could be anywhere

    We all made our choices
    Let’s work out what we’re going to do
    Disembodied voices
    Revealing what we know is true
    And so much is here
    If we all disappear

    We could be anywhere
    We could be anywhere
    We could be anywhere

    We could be
    We could be anywhere
    We could be anywhere
    We could
    We could be anywhere

  • 07 A Life Between Us
  • A Life Between Us
    Neil Finn/Tim Finn

    In so many ways I’m the same as you
    And so many things are better left unsaid
    From out of the deep well the water flows
    Into the sea
    And that’s the way it starts
    And continues to unfold
    But to both of us
    That will never change

    And we’re staring at each other
    Like the banks of a river
    And we can’t get any closer

    I won’t give control to anyone
    Walk around, kiss the ground
    Like I own the place
    But in the passage of time
    The river banks get washed away
    And that’s the way it starts
    And continues to evolve
    I rebuild myself, you watch over me

    And we’re staring at each other
    Like the banks of a river
    And we can’t get any closer
    But we form a life between us

    And brother
    Must be the different direction
    We’re facing
    You’re still as unknown as ever
    Are you still someone
    Who’ll watch over me

    And we’re staring at each other
    Like the banks of a river
    And we can’t get any closer
    But we form a life
    Yes, we form a life
    Between us
    Between us

  • 08 All God’s Children
  • All God’s Children
    Neil Finn/Tim Finn

    We’re all God’s children
    And God is a woman
    But we still don’t know who the father is

    I can’t help thinking
    There’s a fortune riding
    On the answer to that question

    Stop for a moment
    And forget the enemy
    Is there something uou’re not telling us

    Got to make you less lonely
    Time to make you less lonely

    We’re globalising
    But we don’t like competition
    And we still don’t know who the father is

    And you’re so damn pretty
    And don’t you know it
    Here’s a kiss and then we all make up

    Got to make you less lonely
    Got to make you less lonely

    All sides die happy
    This is the last chance
    You’ve got to do it now

    People are waiting
    For him to come around
    All his attention
    We’ve got to stick around

    You might be less lonely
    Got to make you less lonely

  • 09 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

  • 10 All The Colours
  • All The Colours
    Tim Finn/Neil Finn

    I can never forget
    The day we said goodbye
    Holding your hands
    A rainbow low in the sky

    And all the colours there
    To gather you up and carry you up
    All the colours there
    To gather you up

    Now, we’re left here
    To get on with our things
    Writing it down
    And working with wood and strings

    And all the colours there
    To open us up and bring us luck
    All the colours there
    To open us up

    You went walking through that door
    Leaving it ajar
    Whenever things come to an end
    It takes a while to close it again

    And all the colours gently
    Pushing it shut, they’re pushing it shut
    All the colours there
    To open us up and bring us luck

    All the colours there
    To gather us up, to gather us up
    To gather us up, to gather you up again

  • 11 Part Of Me, Part Of You
  • Part of Me, Part of You
    Neil Finn/Tim Finn

    Over these green hills
    Blue electric light
    Always in my blood
    Forever in my eyes
    Black window space
    Basket made of flax
    Broken mirror view
    Let your eyes relax

    Mist on the glass
    Watch it all come to pass
    Once again we’ll breathe in the view
    It’s part of me, part of you

    Now my voice won’t sing
    And my tears won’t cry
    Your disciple waits
    For any good advice
    Our place in time
    It’s not set in stone
    And we’ll still be here
    When the cows come home

    Mist on my glass
    Watch it all come to pass
    Once again we’ll breathe in the view
    It’s part of me, part of you

    And it has to be clear inside my head
    And I’m still in a dream
    In a dream that won’t end

    Once again we’ll breathe in the view
    It’s part of me, part of you
    Mist on the glass
    Watch it all come to pass
    Once again we’ll breathe in the view
    It’s part of me, part of you

    And it has to be clear
    It has to be clear, inside my head

  • 12 Gentle Hum
  • Gentle Hum
    Neil Finn

    This bird has to sing
    My heart has to follow
    A man with no soul
    Is wooden and hollow

    This gentle hum
    Has just begun
    This gentle hum
    Will make us one

    My wish is for you
    An end to your sorrow
    And if it comes true
    You’ll wake up tomorrow alone

    With a gentle hum
    Has just begun
    This gentle hum
    Will make us one

    There for anyone who cares
    Solemn faces in the courtroom stare

    And this gentle hum
    We’ll wake up tomorrow
    With a gentle hum
    This gentle hum

    This gentle hum
    (This gentle hum, coming up from before)
    Will make us one
    (Find a loving feeling, inside)
    This gentle hum
    (This gentle hum, bringing it back to me)
    Has just begun
    (Find a loving feeling in your life)
