Released as a single in Australia, where it charted at #27, "When You Come" was written by group leader Neil Finn for the band's second album. Finn says the song made more sense to him as he got older. In 1998, he explained to Goldmine "I'd done it a couple of times before, but that was the first time I was conscious of a real stream-of-consciousness lyric. Images just fell out one on top of another. I didn't, at the time, think it was all that connected – but actually, now, it seems like quite a coherent statement. I was just juxtaposing the natural world with a personal... pledge, really, I suppose."
