Neil Finn Astro

You weightless astronaut

You sunset diving bird

You’re cool wind set upon the branches of a tree

You’re holding my attention

You are my first impression

And I can recognise the light that I’ve been given

One day they will discover you

Low cloud moving across the sky

One day they will uncover you

Young girl

Wash the sleet out of your eye

Dust on my piano

Wool rest never sleeping

All your best one-liners borrowed from a film

The thing that gets to me is

How you’re never free, and

How the spirit yearns

Your body is a prison

One day they will discover you

Low cloud moving across the sky

One day they will uncover you

The thing that gets to me

Is how you’re never free

And how the spirit yearns

Your body is a prison

Bright as her eyes

Wide in the night

Why can’t you see me?

Come with the wind

Time to begin

There’ll be no compromise

When all you want is wrapped around you

As those saints preserve us when we’re dying

To pick us up from where we’re lying

One day they will discover you

One day they will uncover you

Bright as her eyes

Wide in the night

They will discover you

They will discover you
