Split Enz – Message To My Girl lyrics

(N Finn) - 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

--
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.

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
[???]
