People the country over were puzzled by the odd choice of Key’s entrance music to the National Party annual conference last month. Originally we were told that Key was holding a competition to choose the song. Next it seemed that Kevin Taylor might be the man behind the strange choice.

Lights go out and I cant be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have bought me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead
Singing
Come out of things unsaid
Shoot an apple off my head
And a trouble that cant be named
A tigers waiting to be tamed
Singing
You are
You are
Confusion that never stops
The closing walls and the ticking clocks
Gonna come back and take you home
I could not stop, that you now know
Singing come out upon my seas
Cursed missed opportunities
Am I part of the cure
Or am I part of the disease
Singing
You are,you are
You are,you are
You are,you are
You are,you are
And nothing else compares
And nothing else compares
And nothing else compares
And nothing else compares
You are, you are
Home, home, where I wanted to go
Home, home, where I wanted to go
Home, home, where I wanted to go (you are)
Home, home, where I wanted to go (you are)
