She said I could never do that
But I know you can, you are in my dream
We are one person, not two of a kind
And what was mine is now in your possession
I could feel you underneath my skin
As the wind rushed in, sent the kitchen table crashing
She said, nobody move, or I'll bring the house down

I hardly know which way is up
Or which way down
People are strange,
God only knows
I feel possessed when you come round

It was one of those times wished
I had a camera on me
Six foot off the ground
Well, I know how that sounds
Look above you and beyond me too
That kind of view don't need an explanation
I'm not lying, not asking for anything
I just want to be there when it happens again

I hardly know which way is up
Or which way down
People are strange
God only knows
I feel possessed when you come round

Whenever you invade my home
Everything I know flies out the window
It's above you and beyond me too
I don't want an explanation
But I'll be there when you bring the house down

I hardly know which way is up
Or which way down
People are strange
God only knows
I feel possessed when you come round
People are strange
I feel possessed when you come round

The band used to throw out a different explanation depending on who was interviewing. At one point Neil Finn said it was a church he saw on Sunset Blvd.

Absolutely agree!
So moody and unsettling. Neil Finn at this best. Great song, great album.

The only other TRUE BEATLES!!!!

This cassette lived in the player in my '85 Pontiac Sunbird for quite a while, years ago.  Seems like whenever I hear one of the cuts from Temple, I'm taken back to tearing ass down the highway to who-knows-where, with the amber dashboard lights staring back at me. 
Gorgeous masters of Mood and Music.

Everything they did - lovely.
excellent tunesmiths!
Very nice! :bounce:

I like crowded house, but this song is just miserable. Going to turn of RP for a few minutes.
Couldn't disagree more. This is one of the best songs that never got played off this album. Great tune with a depth of feeling that is lacking on so much of todays schlock music.
The chord progression and counterpoint in the chorus will tear your heart out. Masters of the craft.
Good example of an outstanding body of work.

My upload a while back. I'm happy it was accepted, and I hope it gets played sometime soon. Any time now, in honor of Halloween, would be good.
Mice add. Crowded House doesn't sound much better than they do here. Love the organ at then end of the song.
Great album, great song (and no, it has nothing to do with Halloween!) :cool:

Two Crowded House songs in the last 75 minutes. 10:36 am - Crowded House - I Feel Possessed 9:22 am - Crowded House - Pineapple Head It would be rude to say that is two too many. So I will go with one too many.

No, we can't stop with the Halloween songs until we play this one. And there can never be enough Crowded House. Thanks, Bill (and thanks to lunar1963 and Mari for requesting it). I'm a happy camper. :bounce:
Umm, can we stop with the Halloween songs already?
