"Election Night" as written by and Bic (briolette Kah) Runga....
Come around for tea
Dance me round and round the kitchen
By the light of my T.V
On the night of the election

Ancient stars will fall into the sea
And the ocean floor sings her sympathy
Drive me miles away
Escape the sky that we lay under
Of all the dreams we cannot shake

We're always shaking in our slumber
In the car don't let me fall asleep
I might leave my heart here on your vinyl seat
Well the sound of the city's now long gone

And in the silence of the park and every darkened cinema
Feel the little changes coming on
So come to me where you belong
Of all the bright machinery

Love's the strangest of inventions
How could this all just turn on me?
When all I wanted was perfection
And you are

That's what you are to me
You're the brightest star when all the world's asleep
Well the sound of the city's now long gone
And in the silence of the park and every darkened cinema

Feel the little changes coming on
So come to me where you belong
Come to me where you belong

    General CommentPersonally I find this song rather hard to find meaning to.. the tune of the song sounds kinda intense and almost depressing at times but from what the lyrics indicate I think it's simply about what it feels like to be in love? :)

    General CommentI think it's asking a lover, or friend who is constantly on the road to come back. "Ancient stars will fall into the sea" means old relationships are lost, while "And the ocean floor sings her sympathy" means that only the ocean floor knows her loneliness. She's afraid of leaving her heart with the person (on their vinyl seat) cause they'll take it with them when they leave.
