  • 01 Tell Me What You Want
  • 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

  • 02 Can’t Put It Down Until It Ends
  • 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

  • 03 These Are Conditions
  • 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

  • 04 From A Friend To A Friend
  • 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

  • 05 Golden Child
  • 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

  • 06 Daylight
  • 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

  • 07 Go Kart
  • 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

  • 08 Dead Leg
  • 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 won’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

  • 09 TNT For 2
  • 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

  • 10 The Game We Love To Play
  • 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

  • 11 Diamonds In Her Eyes
  • 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
