"How Will You Go" as written by and Neil Finn....
Escape is on your mind again
Escape to a far away land
At times it seems there is no end
To long hard nights of drinking

How will you go
How will you go
Drive through the wind and the rain
Cover it up
Cover it up
I'll find you a shelter to sleep in

I fell over on the couch again
But you know not all sleep is wasted
Your dreams are alcohol inspired
I can't find a better way to face it

How will you go
How will you go
Drive through the wind and the rain
Cover it up
Cover it up
I'll find you a shelter to sleep in

And you know I'll be fine
Just don't ask me how it's going
Gimme time, gimme time
'Cause I want you to see
Round the world, round the world
Is a tangled up necklace of pearls

How will you go
How will you go
Drive through the wind and the rain
Cover it up
Cover it up
I'll find you a shelter to sleep in

How will you go
How will you go
Drive through the wind and the rain
Cover it up
Cover it up
I'll find you a shelter to sleep in

    General CommentThis song is another briljant song by crowded house. I used to this when i was driving home and the weather was bad (thats often in Holland).

    "escape is on your mind again". Yeah.

    I do agree that the line with the pearls is lovely. I don`t know what it means. In the booklet of the best of CD there is a mentioning of this line. Can`t remember what his interpretation was.

    General CommentI agree about the line.
    In the "best of..." booklet the line of "tangled necklace of pearls" music is described as the feeling of a dizzy love for life and a resentment of mortality at the same time, which i think is a true summary. The world and life is a beautiful string of brilliant moments however the necklace is tangled ans sometimes we do not see life as an amazing thing.
    The singer is trying to show this to the person he is writing about and finding it a hard task as this person wants to "escape".
