"All Around Me" as written by Daniel Jones and Darren Hayes....
Well you know every time I look at that expression printed on the page I think I hear you,
Whispering the magic and the compliments I need so badly
So baby come on, yeah, so baby come on
Now I've been running circles around the notion that you'd find me baby, One day maybe.
But all the physic powers of suggestion I've been sending your way,

So can't you hear me say?
I want your arms all around me,
I want your face, yeah, all around me,
I want your perfume, all around me,
I like the way you move,
And do the funky groove.

All around me I want you.
All around me I need you.
All around me I want you.
All around me.

So can't you hear me say?
I want your arms all around me,
I want your face, yeah, all around me,
I want your perfume, all around me,
I like the way you move,
And do the funky groove.

Like cold chardonnay chilled for a day,
Your smooth and crisp and on display.
Like Cartier, Armani, like TAG, Gucci, Versace.
In the middle of the night you're a kiss so long.
You're the only good thing when all is wrong.
You're a magic time reversal clock.
You're the fries on the side with a cherry on top.
You're sleek, velvet, gold lame, patent leather, enchante.
You're a legend, you're a glamor queen.
God I'm running out of words but you know what I mean...

All around me I want you.
All around me I need you.
All around me I want you,

So can't you hear me say?
I want your arms all around me,
I want your face, yeah, all around me,
I want your perfume, all around me,
I like the way you move, and do the funky groove.

So slide into your Jaguar, or Porsche baby, there you are.
Well chop chop darling au revoir.
Pick up your things you're a star

    General CommentI'm guessing not many have heard this song, but I'll mention one thing: this is based on Daniel (the non vocalist of Savage Garden) and his obsession on Meg Ryan.

    General CommentI saw Savage Garden in 1998 during their To the Moon and Back tour and Darren introduced this song as being in reference to Daniel's wishful love affair with Meg Ryan. While I'm positive the song started out that way, I also have a sneaking suspicion that Darren added his own two cents in there toward the end. In the beginning, the song is about the passion and desire to be loved and held by someone in particular, but toward the end it sort veers off into the direction of Darren mocking stardom in itself. The last few lines of the song seem like Darren is blatantly poking fun at being a rock star and how he's being treated like royalty. It's kind of like he's rolling his eyes at the glamourous lifestyle that's being served up on a silver platter. It seems to be all in good fun, of course. It's refreshing though, to see a rock star mocking royalty so openly. I love how Darren must add his personal touch to everything. Fabulous. :)

    General CommentIt sounds like a guy who flatters you and tells you how great you are and how much he cares about you only because he wants to have sex with you. Then, after you do, he doesn't need to pretend he likes you anymore so he'll just say 'au revoir'.
