"I Got You" as written by and Gordon/ricci Galbraith....
I got you, that's all I want
I won't forget, that's a whole lot
I don't go out, now that you're in
Sometimes we shout, but that's no problem

I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I'm not lyin'

Look at you, you're a pageant
You're everything, that I've imagined
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, you can tell that I'm not lyin'

There's no doubt, not 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 you can tell that I'm not lying
I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I'm not lyin'
I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I'm not lying

    General CommentThis song is 100% about the Insecurity of dating a prettier girl. There always that shadow of doubt in the back of your head.

    General CommentI've always thought the song was about a guy who is quite a loner who has a girlfriend who's a lot better then him and when he is at home without her he gets afraid mainly about if she will come back and who she is with.

    That's my thoughts on the meaning don't hesitate to let me know if you agree/disagree with it

    General CommentCommittment-phobia! A lot of material Neil Finn wrote between True Colours to the song, "Message to My Girl" (from Conflicting Emotions) pertaining to love matters seem to have that common thread: "If I stop/I could lose my way/But I'm ready for romance..." from "One Step Ahead" is a good example.
    BTW, "Message..." was a love song Neil wrote to his wife, Sharon Finn--which starts off with: "I don't want to say I love you..." Wonder how his wife thought when she 1st. heard this (grin).

    My InterpretationHe's dating this girl who is super popular. He starts to get obsessed with her.
    She becomes everything to him.

    The girl probably thinks he's creepy and something tells me it all happens in his own head.
