Crowded House Everything Is Good For You

I see a man with a flag

And he leads the procession

And a woman shedding tears

For a man locked in prison

Yeah…

Then the two locked eyes

And for a moment I was taken

And all paths lead

To a single conclusion

Yeah…

Everything is good for you

If it doesn’t kill you

Everything is good for you

One man’s ending

Is another man’s beginning

Everything is good for you

It’s a nightmare talking

To a restless ocean

With a reckless calm

To state their position

Oh…

But if you come undone

It might just set you free

Everything is good for you

If it doesn’t kill you

Everything is good for you

One man’s ending

Is another man’s beginning

Bring back your head

Here comes trouble

To turn me and be well

Cover your heart

Everything is good for you

If it doesn’t kill you

Everything is good for you

If it doesn’t kill you

Everything is good for you

Is good for you

Crowded House Italian Plastic

I bring you plates from Rome

You say they look fantastic

I say we’re having fun

Nothing like that Italian Plastic

I bring you rocks and flowers

You say they look pathetic

You pick me up at night

I don’t feel pathetic

[Chorus:]

When you wake up with me

I’ll be your glass of water (uh huh)

When you stick up for me

They you’re my Bella Bambina (uh huh)

I say we’re on a trip

Looks like we’re on vacation

I say we’re having fun

In our little constellation

[Chorus]

Then I’ll be your Balle Bambino, your man from the moon

I’ll be your little boy running with that egg on his spoon

I’ll be your soul survivor, you worst wicked friend

I’ll be your piggy in the middle, stick with you till the end (Oh)

[Chorus]

Crowded House My Telly’s Gone Bung

My telly’s gone bung

What am I to do about the ABC

My telly’s gone bung

What am I to do about my predicament

My telly’s gone bung

I plugged it it in and it turned me off again

I’ve waited up for you

To come alive and bring some truth back to me yeah

Cos I’m where I wanna be in front of my TV

My telly’s gone bung

What am I to do about Kylie & Jason now

My telly’s gone bung

I don’t really care for their predicament

I’ve waited up for you

To come alive and bring some truth back to me yeah

Cos I’m where I wanna be in front of my TV

If it was up to me

I’d let these people see

What people do

I’ve been watching you too

I’ve waited up for you

To come alive and bring some truth back to me yeah

Cos I’m where I wanna be in front of my TV

If it was up to me

I would let these lovely people see

If it was up to me

If it was up to me

If it was up to me

If it was up to me

If it was up to me

Crowded House Sister Madly

Now, you’re heading down to get someone

Should’ve done what he had to do years ago

The position is coming through

All the people that you’re standing on

All the people that you’re standing on

Now, you’re heading down to be someone

Someone that you’ve seen in a magazine

Your premonition is coming true

Oh, baby, you’re not so green

No, baby, you’re not so green

No, baby, you’re nutso

[CHORUS]

Sister madly waking up the dead

Systematically stepping on my head

‘Cause sister madly waking up the dead

Systematically stepping on my head

Now, you’re heading down to find something

Something that you buried in your backyard

The position is coming through

From all the dirt that you’re digging up

From all the dirt that you’re digging up

Now, you’re heading down to be somewhere

Somewhere you imagined in your wildest dream

The opposition is coming through

From all the people that you’re standing on

From all the people that you’re standing on

And now, you’d better take a firm hand

[CHORUS]

Now, you’re heading down to get someone

Someone that you should’ve had years ago

The position is coming through

All the people that you’re standing on

All the people that you’re standing on

You’re hard to get a hand on

[CHORUS]

Crowded House Amsterdam

You and me got the whole day off

Take a trip to Vincent Van Gogh

But the line went halfway round the block

And we’re looking for a place to rest

Every seat in every bar was set

So we turned back to The Grand Hotel

And the rain came hard

A million people on a protest march

Every choice, every path was mistaken

You and me got the whole thing sussed

Gray man is shadowing us

Wild conspiracies turn to dust

Hear the sound of cathedral bells

Cash ringing at the gates of Hell

And fairground hooligans push and swell

They’re the darkest days of a free man

Lying in the streets of Amsterdam

Nearly fell underneath the tram

But I picked myself up

Every temptation and device

All the diamonds and the spice

I would give anything for the sight

Of an honest man (Hey)

Eyes swim in emptiness

I was looking at a hotel guest

He blew me a big sarcastic kiss

And the Lord walked in

With a monocle and lips so thin

Saw the barman wink as he poured his brandy

They’re the darkest days of a free man

Lying in the streets of Amsterdam

Nearly fell underneath the tram

But I picked myself up

Every temptation up in lights

all the diamonds and the spice

Could take profit from the vice

Of another man

Amsterdam

Cold, cold

Cold, cold

You belong

Crowded House Either Side Of The World

Either side of the world

Chase the sun

Pay the maximum rate

To feel so lonesome

Wrapped up like little lambs

Safe from harm

Enjoy it while you can

Happiness is far from home

You know it, he knows it

Everybody knows it

When you’re in love

The world moves with you

Whatever you want

They’re happy to give you

The last resort

Where the famous have come

To be alone

Try to work it out

The same progression

Sometimes I try too hard

To overcome

Sometimes I think too much

Wish I could’ve held my tongue

You know it, he knows it

Everybody knows it

When you’re in love

The world moves with you

Whatever you want

You turn yourself into

And then you’re in Hell

Luxury and leisure

Never meant pleasure

We like it different

Passion and commitment

Commitment

Wish I could’ve held my tongue

You know it, he knows it

Everybody knows it

When you’re in love

The world moves with you

Whatever you want

They’re happy to give you

When you’re in hell

Luxury and leisure

Never meant pleasure

We like it different

Passion and commitment

Crowded House Tombstone

Look at all the plans I made

Falling down like scraps of paper

I will leave them where they lie to remind me

From the past a rumour comes

Don’t let it keep draggin’ you down

Throw the memory in an open fire

You’ll be free

Roll back the tombstone

Let the saints appear

Roll back the tombstone

Make a new man out of me

Beware the passenger

The train already left the station

We are neither at home nor at work

We are moving

Listen to the howling of steel

A face betraying no emotion

Like you never had a chance to be

Wild and free

Roll back the tombstone

Let the saints appear

Roll back the tombstone

Till the Lone Ranger rides again

Rides again in your mind

Rode across the open plain

All the way

and back again

Crowded House Don’t Dream It’s Over

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 traveling 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 release

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

You know they won’t win

Don’t let them win

Hey now, hey now

Hey now, hey now

Hey now, hey now

Don’t let them win

They come, they come

Don’t let them win

Hey now, hey now (yeah)

Hey now, hey now

Crowded House Something So Strong

Love can make you weep

Can make you run for cover

Roots that spread so deep

Bring life to frozen ground

Something so strong

Could carry us away

Something so strong

Could carry us today

Turning in my sleep

Love can leave you cold

A taste of jealousy

Is like a lust for gold

Something so strong

Could carry us away

Something so strong

Could carry us today

I’ve been

Feeling so much older

Frame me

And hang me on the wall

I’ve seen

You fall into the same trap

This thing

Is happening to us all

Something so strong

Could carry us away

Something so strong

Could carry us today

Something so strong….

Crowded House It’s Only Natural

Ice will melt, water will boil

You and I can shake off this mortal coil

It’s bigger than us

You don’t have to worry about it

Ready or not, here comes the drop

You feel lucky when you know where you are

Y’know, it’s gonna come true

Here in your arms, I remember

It’s only natural

That I should want to be there with you

It’s only natural

That you should feel the same way, too

It’s easy when you don’t try going on first impressions

Man in a cage has made his confession

Now, you’ve seen me at my worst

And it won’t be the last time I’m down there

I want you to know I feel completely at ease

Read me like a book

That’s fallen down between your knees

Please, let me have my way with you

It’s only natural

That I should want to be there with you

It’s only natural

That you should feel the same way, too

It’s circumstantial

It’s nothing written in the sky

And we don’t even have to try

But we’ll be shaking like mud

Buildings of glass

Sink into the bay

They’ll be under the rocks again

You don’t have to say

I know you’re afraid

It’s only natural

That I should want to be there with you

It’s only natural

That you should feel the same way, too

It’s circumstantial

It’s something I was born to

It’s only natural

Can I help it if I want to?
