About Instinct

"Instinct" is a 1996 song by rock group Crowded House. It was the first single released from the group's greatest hits compilation Recurring Dream in the United Kingdom, and the third and final release in Australia. It was a top 20 hit in New Zealand and the UK, peaking at number 17 and number 12, respectively; in the UK, it became their second-highest peak alongside "Locked Out" (their highest peak was "Weather with You" at number seven). In Australia, "Instinct" peaked at number 90 on the ARIA Singles Chart in March 1997, spending two non-consecutive weeks in the top 100. The band members reportedly hated the music video for the song which featured two female aliens, and a living golden statue, thus it was omitted from the compilation DVD Dreaming: The Videos.

I lit the match
I lit the match
I saw another monster turn to ash
Felt the burden lifting from my back
Do you recognise a nervous twitch
That exposes the weakness of the myth
When your turn comes round
And the light goes on
And you feel your attraction again
Your instinct can't be wrong
Separate the fiction from the fact
A (get) little slow to react
But it's nearly time to flick the switch
And I'm hanging by a single stitch
Laughing at the stony face of gloom
When your turn comes round
And the light goes on
And you feel your attraction again
Your instinct can't be wrong
Feel this come and go 
Where the true present lies 
Calling down, calling down, calling
Laughing at the stony face of gloom
When your turn comes round
And the days get long
And you feel your attraction to him
Your instinct can't be wrong
Calling down
Calling down
