"I Walk Away" as written by and Finn/rayner....
You came
Out of this world to me
My life
Parted like the red sea
We flowed
Easy between the rocks and stones
Never seemed to stop us
The years
Ended in confusion
Don't ask me I don't know what happened
But I am
A man with a mission
Must be the devil I don't know

It's hard to let go
Of all that we know
As I walk away from you
Hurled from my home
Into the unknown
As I walk away from you

Reveal whatever you desire
To you it may be death defying
Black day
In the coldness of winter
Black words
Slipping off my tongue
I say forget it - it's over
As a dark cloud covered up the sun

It's hard to let go
Of all that we know
As I walk away from you
The sun always sets
With room for regrets
As I walk away from you

Give it to me
Give it to me
Your inspiration
Give to receive
Find all we need
As I walk away

Just a slave to ambition
Tension your permanent condition
So much you've always wanted
Too much given' you a sore head

    General CommentThis is possible my favorite song of all time (tied with a few beatles songs though, I don't have a top favorite). I was rasied on this band, their first album was my childhood. I can't believe I JUST found out the was orignally done with split Enz and was a single and everything. I'm just so shocked since I felt like no one knew that song or anything. I knew of SE, but years ago (like ten years ago) when I searched for a song meaning, video or a live version... I never came across the SE version. Anyways...
    But from reading, it has to be about the end of Split Enz like stated before.

    General CommentI am, like, 98 percent sure that this is actually a split enz song. It was on their 'History Never Repeats: Best of alubm...Either way I love both bands and this song...I too was raised on Crowded House and Split Enz...I cant listen to any of their without being reminded of at least one family member.

    General CommentIts a reprise of the last single released by Split Enz.

    The whole album is about the demise of Split Enz, re-grouping, finding their mojo again and getting back out there where we want them.
