• The Swing

    Music & lyrics by INXS

    Theme of the week commands: the rhythm of time and its ups and downs. Be as it may, how tragically ironic that Michael Hutchence got so severely depressed he chose to end it all by hanging himself — even though his last partner (who also left this world) claimed it was a self-sex game known as “the swing” that went wrong (???!!!). Rather creepy. Rest in peace, Michael.

    Lyrics

    It's the swing —
    It's the swing like a pendulum,
    It marks the moments as the years go by
    On an innocent face —
    The swing
    Into never Neverland.

    There was a darkness
    Like an old friend
    That scratched and crawled
    Up the wall
    Into my life,
    Into my destiny,
    Into my desire.

    It's the swing —
    It's the swing like a pendulum,
    So look behind you
    When the race has run
    And the winner is made —
    The swing
    Into never Neverland.

    There was a darkness
    Like an old friend
    That scratched and crawled
    Up the wall
    Into my life.

    Well it's the swing —
    The swing like a pendulum
    Between the kisses
    And between the lines
    There is nothing to hide —
    The swing
    Into never Neverland.

    The swing into never never land
    There was a darkness like an old friend
    That scratched and crawled up the wall
    Into my life
    Into my destiny
    Into my desire

    Yeah, the swing —
    It's the swing like a pendulum...

    It's the swing —
    It's the swing like a pendulum...

    It's the swing.
