"The Swing" as written by Michael Hutchence and Andrew Charles Farriss....
It's the swing
It's the swing like a pendulum
It marks the moments as the years go by in an innocent phase
The swing into never-never land
There was a darkness like an old friend
That scratched and crawled up the wall
Into my life
Into my destiny
Into my desire

It's the swing
It's the swing like a pendulum
So look behind you when the race has run
And the winner is named
The swing into never-never land
There was a darkness like an old friend
That scratched and crawled up the wall
Into my life

Well it's the swing
The swing like a pendulum
Between the pieces and between the lines
Leaving nothing to hide
There was a darkness like an old friend
That scratched and crawled up the wall
Into my life
Into my destiny
Into my desire

It's the swing
It's the swing like a pendulum
It's the swing
It's the swing like a pendulum
It's the swing

    General CommentThis was a great way to wrap up the side of the album (for thjose of us who had it on vinyl).
    More goodness from INXS.

    General CommentWhat do you think the "swing" is a metaphor for? I've been trying to figure it out.
