"It's Only Natural" as written by and Tim Finn Neil Finn....
Ice will melt, water will boil
You and I can shake off this mortal coil
It's bigger than us
You don't have to worry about it

Ready or not here comes the drop
You feel lucky when you know where you are
You know it's gonna come true
Here in your arms I remember

It's only natural that I should want to
Be there with you
It's only natural that you should
Feel the same way too

It's easy when you don't try
Going on first impressions
Man in a cage has made his confession
Now you've seen me at my worst
And it won't be the last time I'm down there

I want you to know I feel completely at ease
Read me like a book
That's fallen down between your knees
Please, let me have my way with you

It's only natural that I should want to
Be there with you
It's only natural that you should
Feel the same way too

It's circumstantial, it's nothing written in the sky
And we don't even have to try
Shaking like mud, buildings of glass
Sink into the bay, they'll be under the rocks again
You don't have to say I know you're afraid

It's only natural that I should want to
Be there with you
It's only natural that you should
Feel the same way too

It's circumstantial, it's something I was born to
It's only natural, can I help it if I want to? Can I help it if I want to?

    General CommentIt's sexy! I can't help glancing over at my other half, or at least thinking of him when they sing
    "Please let me have my way with you".

    General CommentAwww, this song is so underrated, it's amazing!

    I'd say it was just about a couple, but hey, there's probably some deep hidden meaning I'm not getting... I still love it :)

    General CommentI think its about a couple who have hit hard times and one of them (the female possibly) no longer feels the same about the other. I think the song is about how the man feels and is made to feel by his ex-girlfriend.

    General CommentHey, that's easy.
    He tells someone that everything will be over someday and it's only natural, and that someone doesn't have to worry about it, though s/he is afraid. He also sayes, he doesn't believe in destiny ("...It's circumstantial, it's nothing written in the sky...")

    General CommentWow I can't believe how many whacked people are out there. This song is about death and dying. Does anyone read anymore? "Shake off this mortal coil"? Does that ring a bell? Hello? "Under the rocks again?" Hello?
