"Sunset Swim" as written by and Neil Finn Tim Finn....
When I was a younger man
The sun was rising from the sea
Now it’s going back again
Taking little bits of me
I park my car above the beach
And walk into the white and green
It’s something I can almost touch
It’s nothing that I’ve ever seen

I’m going for a sun (gonna drive out)
(Sail) for a sunset swim
I’m going for a sun
(Yeah I think I’ll throw myself right) swim
I’m going for a sun (gonna find out where the world begins)

I’m rolling with all unknown
And falling through the backlit ways
All the damage that’s been done
Dissolving in the ocean spray

I’m going for a sun (gonna drive out)
(Sail) for a sunset swim
I’m going for a sun
(Yeah I think I’ll throw myself right) swim
I’m going for a sun
(Gonna find out where the world begins) sailing
I’m going for a sun (yeah I think I’ll throw myself right)
Swim

I’m going for a sunset swim
And I’ve been waiting all day long
Sunset swim taste the foam
Something tells me I’m almost home

I’m going for a sun (gonna drive out)
(Sail) for a sunset swim
I’m going for a sun
(Yeah I think I’ll throw myself right)
Swim

    Lyric CorrectionA fantastic song that I think is about growing old and facing death. The lyrics need a few corrections.


    When I was a younger man
    The sun was rising from the sea
    Now it's going back again
    Taking little bits of me
    I park my car above the beach
    And walk into the white and green
    It's something I can almost touch
    It's nothing that I've ever seen

    I'm going for a sun set swim (gonna drive out for a sunset swim)
    I'm going for a sun set swim (yeah I think I'll throw myself right in)

    I'm rolling with all unknown
    And falling through the backlit waves
    And all the damage that's been done
    Dissolving in the ocean spray

    I'm going for a sun set swim (gonna drive out for a sunset swim)
    I'm going for a sun set swim (yeah I think I'll throw myself right in)
    I'm going for a sun set swim (gonna find out where the world begins)
    I'm going for a sun set swim (yeah I think I'll throw myself right in)

    I'm going for a sunset swim
    And I've been waiting all day long
    Sunset swim taste the foam
    Something tells me I'm almost home
    Home

    I'm going for a sun set swim (gonna drive out for a sunset swim)
    I'm going for a sun set swim (yeah I think I'll throw myself right in)
