Track Sample:

 

The late Michal Hutchence front man of INXS was one of our most talented and successful musicians and lyricists in Australia, if not the world.

 

Some people at some point push the boundaries of their physical and emotional tolerance and indulge in excess of what their minds and bodies can take.

 

This lifestyle is not only reserved for the rich and famous, but for any person, especially the young, who we see time and time again waste their precious lives. I knew another Michael personally, who also had the world at his feet. He was lovable, kind, funny and productively and happily enjoying life as a young man. Until one night of excess ended it all for him. So whilst “In Excess of Life” may appear to have a focus on the late Michael Hutchence, it’s really using this high profile example as an opportunity to express the sadness of any life that is lost this way.

IN EXCESS OF LIFE © Copyright (LYRICS)

 

Your beautiful curls, your beautiful girls

You drank the juices of life

Intoxication it’s a gamble but you through the dice

Too young, too soon, so blue        Life in excess took over you

 

The sounds you made, we loved them all

You had us crying for more

Your mind confused you couldn’t lose

You had the wolves at the door

Too young, too soon, so blue        Life in excess took over you

 

What did you write why did you stop why did you throw it away

You couldn’t think, you couldn’t tell the things you wanted to say

What did you write why did you stop why did you throw it away

 

GUITAR SOLO:

 

Too young, too soon, so blue                    Life in excess took over you

 

You had the highs you had the rise but possibilities fall

And in your moments you elegantly wasted it all

Too young, too soon, so blue        Life in excess took over you

 

What did you write why did you stop why did you throw it away

You couldn’t think, you couldn’t tell the things you wanted to say

What did you write why did you stop why did you throw it away

 

Your beautiful curls, your beautiful girls

You drank the juices of life

Intoxication it’s a gamble but you through the dice

Too young, too soon, so blue        Life in excess took over you

KEYBOARD SOLO:

 

Too young, too soon, so blue        Life in excess took over you

Too young, too soon, so blue        Life in excess took over you

Too young, too soon, so blue        Life in excess took over you
