PRECIOUS THINGS
Written by Bic Runga.
Live version: Togther In Concert: Live.
Album version: found on the album 'Beautiful Collision'.

When all the star-gazers bloom, throw the stars around the room
I was waiting for the day for you to love me
When all the elements conspire with shiny things that catch the eye
I was waiting for the day for you to love me.

Precious, precious thing
You are the thought that makes me sing
Wanna leave all my possessions
It's a rare and precious, precious thing.

When all the elements conspire with shiny things that catch the eye
I was waiting for the day for you to love me.

Precious, precious thing
You are the thought that makes me sing
Wanna leave all my possessions
It's a rare and precious, precious thing.

And I know all I need is to get on the phone,
To get on the phone and call you
And call you.

As clear as rain on the street, it shines like bright coloured stone
These things no one can own, they are for you
This is for you
This is for you
This is for you.
