"God's Gift" as written by and Brett Anderson....
You raised me on whitesnake
on prince tapes, on summer sounds
And you saved me and gave me
dance tunes and hand-me-downs

You said that we were just good friends
But we jumped red lights all the way to the end
There you go, there you go again

You looked at me in a restaurant
And a lonely tune was the only sound
And you took me out under centrepoint
And we got lost in the lonely crowd

You said that we were just good friends
But we jumped red lights all the way to the end
There you go, there you go again

And you said that we were just good friends
But we jumped red lights all the way to the end
God's gift, there you go again

    General CommentThis song should have made the album, its by far one of the best songs recorded for the 'Head Music' sessions. One way love is pretty much a songwriting standard, but this is one of the finest I have heard. I feel like there's an age gap between the singer and his subject. It starts out like he is remembering his music tastes and fashion sense being influenced by a special but older friend who he regretted never became a lover because of the age difference.
