I Got You Lyrics

I got you - that's all I want
I won't forget - that's a whole lot
I don't go out - not now that you're in
Sometimes we shout - but that's no problem

I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I'm not lyin'

Look at you - you're a pageant
You're everything - that I've imagined
Somethings wrong - I feel uneasy
You show me - tell me you're not teasin'

I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I'm not lyin'
I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, can you tell me you're not lyin'

There's no doubt - not when I'm with you
When I'm without - I stay in my room
Where do you go - I get no answer
You're always out - it gets on my nerves

I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I'm not lying
(But) I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, can you tell me you're not lyin'
I don't know why sometimes I get frightened
You can see my eyes, you can tell that I'm not lying

This song is 100% about the Insecurity of dating a prettier girl. There always that shadow of doubt in the back of your head.

great song!!

An error occured.

I've always thought the song was about a guy who is quite a loner who has a girlfriend who's a lot better then him and when he is at home without her he gets afraid mainly about if she will come back and who she is with.

That's my thoughts on the meaning don't hesitate to let me know if you agree/disagree with it

about a weird relationship. the girl is all he's got and he appears to be very possessive because he's afraid she will leave him. and she probably will...

Come to think about it, I think it really is about a possesive dude - wow! Split Enz surprise me everytime. How dark! GO KIWI ROCK!

This was one of the first songs Neil actually wrote, and you can tell already he was something special

An error occured.

Committment-phobia! A lot of material Neil Finn wrote between True Colours to the song, "Message to My Girl" (from Conflicting Emotions) pertaining to love matters seem to have that common thread: "If I stop/I could lose my way/But I'm ready for romance..." from "One Step Ahead" is a good example. BTW, "Message..." was a love song Neil wrote to his wife, Sharon Finn--which starts off with: "I don't want to say I love you..." Wonder how his wife thought when she 1st. heard this (grin).

lol, "I don't want to say I love you..." bit different for a love song.

As above, I Got You seems to be about a dysfunctional ? relationship, insecurity, dependence on a partner who is not committed to the writer.

Yes, dark and sad - at odds with the maximally catchy tune!

An error occured.

He's dating this girl who is super popular. He starts to get obsessed with her. She becomes everything to him.

The girl probably thinks he's creepy and something tells me it all happens in his own head.

My Interpretation
An error occured.

hes trying to figure out why he gets so scared really possesive guy awesome song

An error occured.

i think this song is about a relationship and the girl is popular and the guy is too scared to show his emotions to her and she thinks that he is being weird and creepy.
