"Years Go By" as written by and Eddie Rayner Neil Finn....
She gets up in the afternoon
The sun will set behind her
When the twilight comes
The magic one, will gaze on you
Seconds last for hours all evening
This purple room is breathing
To the milky way I turn my gaze
It's a mystery
Years go by, wonder what you did
Yet in a minute you can change your life
All depends on your state of mind

One thing to be sure of is we live and die
Fear and doubt no longer harbour lies
Love not grow old where we reside
'Tis enough for now to set you down
And gaze on you
Years go by, wonder what you did
Yet in a minute you can change your life
All depends on your state of mind
One thing to be sure of is we live and die

    General CommentIt deals with how quickly time flies, perhaps wondering at how a girl he briefly meets (see verse 1) is doing now. But generally, the song deals with the idea that you can always change or remedy bad decisions, as the only certainty in life is "that we live and die".
