"I Got You" as written by and Neil Finn....
I got you, and that's all I want
I won't forget 'cause that's a whole lot
When something's wrong I feel uneasy
You show me, tell me you're not teasin'

I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes and tell that I'm not lying
Look at you, you're a pageant
You're everything, oh yeah, that I've imagined

I don't go out, now that you're here
Sometimes we shout, but that's no problem
I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes and tell that I'm not lying

I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes and tell that I'm not lying
There's no doubt, but when I'm with you
When I'm without, I stay in my room

Where do you go? I get no answer
You're always out, it gets on my nerves...
I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes and tell that I'm not lying

I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes and tell that I'm not lying
I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes and tell that I'm not lying

    General Commentin response to your quesiton Belly Full fo Swans: I Got You is a song written by Split Enz in the early 80's - A New Zealand outfit. after hearing his vocals on a song so familiar to me I was blown away - sounds so good. Vedder was influenced by these guys a bit I think as he has performed with them in NZ in a series of show's in 2001. The live album resulting is called Seven Worlds Collide.

    General CommentThe original version of "I Got You" was one of Neil Finn's first major hit songs for Split Enz, and is on the album, "True Colours".
