"All I Ask" as written by and Tim Finn Neil Finn....
All I ask
Is to live each moment
Free from the last
Take the road forgotten
Don't leave me here
Oh, please let me stray
Far from familiar things

All I ask
Is to live each moment
All I ask
Is to live each moment
Free from the last

Strange roads
Going nowhere
Going nowhere (in particular)

All I ask
Is to live each moment
All I ask
Is to live, live each moment
Free from the last
Free from the last
All I ask

    General CommentFrom Woodface, Tim Finn's voice is just great on this track here. I really love the piano at the end of the song as it disappears into nothingness. I take this song to mean that the writer acknowledges the fact that life is brief. He's talking to God, and he wants Him to know that he isn't taking life for granted.

    General Commentone of the most beautiful songs ive ever heard. as for what the song actually means, im not too sure. i like the comment given above ^^^, but i also tend to think maybe the author is talking about freedom. felling free to finally do or go where you want, and not wanting to return to the reality of your actual life and commitments. either way, this song NEARLY brings a tear to my eye each time i hear it or play it on my guitar (i say nearly cos i dont wanna sound too wussy!) :P

    General CommentTo me this is about the desire to experience the power of now. Of being in the present. And be free of your past. (Tolle?)
