"Into the Sunset" as written by and Neil Mullane Finn....
Here lies a place
Won't let me languish
Hears all my footsteps and waits

Watch how she fades into the sunset
A vision spectacular in grace

Hunger for the world, travel
Stimulating discussion, lift me
Faster into the weakness
Off the wall into blackness, gifted

Red eyes reflect, open the suitcase
Spread all your clothes on the floor
Much like it was ten years ago
Time on the clock, I don't want to waste it

Hunger for the world, travel
Stimulating discussion, lift me
Faster into the weakness
Off the wall into blackness, gifted, gifted

Watch how she fades into the sunset
Vision spectacular in grace

Hunger for the world, travel
Stimulating discussion, lift me
Faster into the weakness
Off the wall into blackness, gifted

And I'm away from home
And it's a way of life and I'm a flyin' high
Now I'm a wheeling gull
Here now I come to rest
Under a lion rock, over marine parade

Maybe this time
Maybe this time
Here I'll stay
Maybe this time

    General CommentI always thought this song is about leaving loved ones behind while away touring and Neil missing everyone back home while he is over seas. But it's part of the business of being a musician but he also enjoys it as a weakness as he hungers for world travel and new experiences and meeting interesting people which stimulates him. I think he is partly torn between with missing home a great deal and special and specific places at home and family while living a jet set life. I think it is a quiet ode to:
    'I've been doing this 10 years now, it's still the same old, same old, nothings changed living this life, but I do enjoy some parts of it as it stimulates me, but I'd rather be back home'.
