Split Enz - Message to my girl

(Neil Finn) - Album; Conflicting Emotions
================================================-


I don't want to say I love you
That would give away too much
Hip to be detached and precious
The only thing you feel is vicious


I don't wanna say I want you
Even though I want you so much
It's wrapped up in conversation
Whispered in a hush
Though I'm frightened by the word
Think it's time that it was heard


No more empty self-possession
Vision swept under the mat
It's no new years resolution
It's more than that


Now I wake up happy
Warm in a lovers embrace
No one else can touch us
While we're in this place
So I sing it to the world
Simple message to my girl


No more empty self-possession
Vision swept under the mat
It's no new years resolution
It's more than that

[instrumental]

Though I'm frightened by the word
Think it's time I made it heard
So I sing it to the world
Simple message to my girl


No more empty self-possession
Vision swept under the mat
It's no new years resolution
It's more than that


No there's nothing quite as real
As a touch of your sweet hand
I can't spend the rest of my life
Buried in the sand.

[instrumental fade out]



additional text??oh every night, I hear you call my name
I want to sleep in my dark zen room [???]
oh I have a mind to express my pain [???]
But I won't get back in your tomb


no I care, why I care, why you go now [???]
and every night sings the same song, same song
i feel it coming in my sleep [???]
...i don't want to say...
...i don't want to say!!...


i can't spend the rest of my life buried in the sand...






[Tim:] We can hear you, we want to get down
Get down with you. ow ow!
Yeah-hah, yeah-hah, yeah yeah. yeah-hah, yeah-hah, yeah yeah
I'm going down to the woolshed baby, got my gumboots
I'm going down to the tractor baby, send it out
and... [???]


Saturday night
Eddie Rayner, Eddie Rayner I'm calling for, Eddie Rayner, Eddie Rayner
got the tractor out of the cowshed
[???]
