Message to My Girl
by Split Enz



I don't want to say I love you
That would give away too much
Would you be detached and precious
The only thing you'll feel is viscious
I don't want to say I want you
Even though I want you so much
It's wrapped up in conversation
It's whispered in a hush
Though I'm frightened by the words
Think it's time that it was heard

No more empty self possession
Visions swept under the mat
It's no New Year's resolution
It's more than that

Now I wake up happy
Warm in a lover's embrace
No one else can touch us
While we're in this place
So I'll sing it to the world
A simple message to my girl

No more empty self possession
Visions swept under the mat
It's no New Year's resolution
It's more than that

Though I'm frightened by the words
Think it's time I made it heard
So I'll sing it to the world
Simple message to my girl

No more empty self possession
Visions swept under the mat
It's no New Year's resolution
It's more than that

No, there's nothing quite as real
As the touch of your sweet hands
I can spend the rest of my life
Buried in this hand
