INXS - The Gift Lyrics




Oh, so fine
We were trying
Out of nowhere
Just in time
Let you take me
Deep down the river
Kiss the changes
That shape my life

Always
Left behind
All the tracks that
I could find
Do do do do do
All these scars are mine

I was thinking got the feeling
The gift you gave
Is gonna last forever

All the lies you find
All the truth you see
Rise and fall
But I know what's mine
Here we lie
Looking up to
Empty sky
And the promises we find

I'm not the first one
To ask why
Yeah, yeah

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
All we ever try

I was thinking
Got the feeling
The gift you gave
Is gonna last forever

I was thinking
Got the feeling
The gift you gave
Is gonna last forever

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
All these scars are mine

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
All these scars are mine

I was thinking
Got the feeling
The gift you gave
Is gonna last forever

All the lies you find
All the truth you see
Rise and fall
But I know what's mine

I was thinking
Got the feeling
The gift you gave
Is gonna last forever

All the lies you find
All the truth you see
Rise and fall
But I know what's mine

INXS The Gift Comments
  1. Louisa Lilywhites Lappin

    I just love albums Kick and welcome to wherever you are.

  2. andthefatman

    This is such an underrated song.

  3. GATEKEEPER BOXING

    This song is "A Gift" in itself.

  4. korsunhoox

    + I remember when it came to mtv. considered too controversial a vid and edited as far as I know

  5. korsunhoox

    very good track. I'd boost the snare up from that everlasting rimshot, because of which the mix lacks dynamism

  6. Worldwide Wabbit

    Bought this as a single when it was released. Never seen the video. Very camp.

  7. WhoDarestheMAN gamer

    Only the good die young.

  8. Bellasie

    Their music was incredible and I love this song amongst many others...

  13. Eileen Kehoe

    Out of nowhere, just in time..shared my life..always these..are mine..all the life you find..here we live looking up to empty skies & all the promises we find....I'm not the first person to ask why..I was thinking..the gift you gave is going to last forever. All these scars are mine. I was thinking got this feeling..all the lies you found, all the tunes you see. The gift you gave is going to last forever..💙..I know it's Mine..all the lines you find..the rise & fall..all these scars are mine. Remembering Michael Hutchence, May He Be at Peace With US.

    Настоящее и уникальное по профессионализму музыкальное творчество. Очень люблю и ценю INXS как нечто дорогое .Жаль невозможно нырнуть в прошлое и попасть на какой-нибудь из их концертов.

  23. Myles Galant

  26. Pavel Novák

    Wher will 333333?

  27. jamie foyers

    "The Gift you gave is gonna last forever" : if there was ever a more relevant song for the times we live in today eh?.

    Ulrike Sextro

    I related this line to a different meaning... to a relationship that could not last forever.

  28. Jujube 81

    O.o The other members of INXS also have a lot of charm... ^^

  29. zlopastnyi

    Охренительно уже как 20 лет!

  33. Кокот

    Люблю такие клипы.Обычно певцы ни хрена не понимают,а те ,кто понимают,долго не живут )))))

  34. James Senese

    A seriously awesome INXS song. Would have loved to see this in front of a Wembley audience

  36. The Thracian

    Today i listen this song 20 times. Tomorrow again

  37. Anna Sowińska

    I remember when the iron curtian has fallen, and suddenly I saw that clip. It was "too much" for me (i was 10-12 yo) but later i thought it was good song and clip!

  38. regis simon

    Loved all her songs this one particularly . Great artist RIP

  39. WhoDarestheMAN gamer

    SuperBlackted

    Agreed. In the UK you rarely if never hear it. It’s just a superb record.

    vdelensois

    The same

  40. Megafayce

    37 years old. Barely a fart in the wind.

  41. orinocoPL

    Now, put this song on the radio, don't say the name of the band and look for reactions. How many people will be thinking that this "new" band is good, I wonder...

    Qwerty123

    Agreed!!!

  42. MegaAshWilliams

    A song for the apocalypse.

  43. swordghoti

    Looks like our world.

  44. Shelley O'connell

    38 people disliked this vid.no doubt rnb fans where alls they do is show tits n arse cos the songs are so shit.this song and band is what the music industry calls talent.

  45. max morrell

    Thank you Michael very cool!

  46. William Burton

    Probably their best, Jesus INXS were great.

  47. Adelia Hogarth

    Timeless.

  48. Andrew Brown

    This should be compulsory art and English education. The weight behind the images, the power of the individual amongst the masses, the importance of standing up for what's right. Plus it's an amazing track, still, so many years on.

  49. Paul Gorman

    Rock God.

  50. byronbee

    This track totally blew my mind when it came out. Absolutely love it and it still stands up as an incredibly innovative sound today. x

    andthefatman

    byronbee I find it weird that this song went completely under the radar. It was like they were reinventing themselves but no one gave a fuck.

  51. Liselotte Håkansson

    Why? That is my pissed of very sad thought...

  52. xeniabitch

    do do do do do :))

  53. Stephen green

    think it got to no.11 in the charts wtf 😣

  54. Stephen green

  66. Jan Graf

    einer der besten Sänger dieser ära....schade das er von uns gegangen ist...auch deren Umstände...

  67. Olena Kaidalova

    On of the best singers ever. period

  68. pumpkintubs

    I feel like the fourth horsemen hell follows me wherever I go that's why I don't like being alive xxx

  69. BonesTheCat

    In 1993 I was all over the shop. I just left school and was deep into drugs and fucked up toxic relationships. The lines "All these scars are mine" and "I was thinking. I was feeling. The gift you gave was gonna last forever." gave me a sort of awakening I really didn't acknowledge until later but did set a course for a more positive direction in my life. If those lines meant something to you - especially the scars line - then you'll know what I'm saying. Lessons learned. Accept and move on.

    Thank you, Michael.

    Tiffy Mf

    Amazing what music can do...

  74. Jemma Forrester

  81. Dusty Terranova

    Hell yeh!!
    That's all I can say.
    Fuck off. This rips!!

  82. Starry&Bohemian

    It was one of the first CD i've bought (Full Moon Dirty Hearts) i was only 12
    There's not many actual good bands partially influenced by INXS ...
    The Preatures are the only one i know and they are Aussies as well

  83. Alex B

    Tim Farris never fit inxs...i was thinkig ...got the feeling..

  84. Madzskie J. Mariveles

    I miss this music video in the early 90s. R.I.P. Michael Hutchence (January 22, 1960 - November 22, 1997) I miss him as an artist a lot!

    Nikki Mitchell

    Same :'(

    Edit Levay

    Me too! I mis the INXS, real feelings, real social, political sensibility, high quality of their music, and Hutchence.... :(

  85. Patricia Robertson

    Just about sums up my existence, full of masks and deep intentions.

  86. William Main

    All these scars are mine x

  87. сом шол

     AIDS COOL

  88. S W

    I had been looking for this song for ages. I am well made up i found it again after so many years. I first heard it back in 1994, loved the lyrics and everything that went with it, ( Proper good song ).

  89. Scott Wray

    Isn't it just cool, that Kirk in this video looks like John Lennon!

    Mary Theresa Burns

    I thought I was imagining that.

  90. Johnson Cope

    This version is diffirent than that which is in album :)
    Both versions are great !

  91. furgal1966

    Awesome video, great song. Forget Kick....THIS is when the boys were at the top of their game.

  92. paulee304

    yeh mad song these guys rocked 

  93. JD Gaming 07

    Great song!

  94. Luvie1980

    Now let's do it angry!!!!!

    Luvie1980

    @cranebeg It's pretty good. The acting was very good and the guy they got to play Hutchence did a good job.  I will say this: It was not as bad as the Brittany Murphy biopic. Now, that was absolutely horrible and you should avoid that movie like a plague. 

    cranebeg

    Mmmm I saw another programme about her, she died early in even more suspicious circumstances. :( Back to your first comment though, is that a line from the film?
    I just like what I see ;)

    Luvie1980

    @cranebeg Yeah it is. He says it when they are in the recording studio, rehearsing the song. 

    cranebeg

    Ok cool, nice to talk ;)

    Luvie1980

    @cranebeg :)

  95. Phil Sh

    ВАЩЕ БОМБА!

  96. ConceiveABaby

    all these scars are mine.

    Nope

    :-( Too true
