Finn, Neil - Flying In The Face Of Love Lyrics

You must reveal your infinite sorrow
Show what you’re made of and what you’re afraid of
You’ll have to leave the comfort of shadows
The places you came from, the troubles you played on
out on the landing leaves are descending
summer is ending and daylight is blue
is that you rising up

Flying in the face of love
now you set your mind to run
In circles around everyone
Flying in the face of love
Thinking enough is enough
before you get too involved

Like this isn’t real, it’s just a feeling
that gets in the way sometimes
every distraction you can imagine
like a disclaimer it’s turning you off
always turning you off

Flying in the face of love
now you’ve set your mind to run
In circles around everyone
Flying in the face of love
And dreaming of the one you lost
Wake up to barking dogs

Were you thinking of her when you wrote that song
Sing it to me – your mysterious life I’m reminded of
Think about her – and it feels like a new sensation then it’s gone

Flying in the face of love
How much longer will you run
In circles around everyone
Flying in the face of love
Dreaming of the one you lost
Wake up to barking dogs

flying in the face of love
flying in the face of love
all the years are catching up
how does it feel to be wrong

    Dont ever eat chips in a cornwall carpark! These fkers dive bomb you and when you frantically get to your car and shut that door and feel relief, the dicks shit all over your roof! Great song! Love it.

  18. DuelElite

    Fantastic Song and Clever Video.

  19. PascalsWager5

    There has never been a better "pop" songwriter on the planet.

    Terrible Crayon

    I agree. "Together Alone" is the most underrated pop album of all time. 


    It is my number one favourite of all time! almost to sublime to be called pop music

  20. Gareth Parsons

    Neil what a fantastic song. The magic is back. Just one thing, why couldn't you do this with crowded house on your last album together?!

  21. 61Dazza

    I feel I am privileged to live in this moment in time when Neil Finn is on this planet and I have been able to follow his wonderful music as the soundtrack to my life.

    Lee Haydn Straight

    Me too!!!!!
