Charted: 24 7
  • Don't ask me
    What you know is true
    Don't have to tell you
    I love your precious heart

    I...
    I was standing
    You were there
    Two worlds collided
    And they could never tear us apart

    We could live
    For a thousand years
    But if I hurt you
    I'd make wine from your tears

    I told you
    That we could fly
    'Cause we all have wings
    But some of us don't know why

    I...
    I was standing
    You were there
    Two worlds collided
    And they could never ever tear us apart

  • James from Denver Mike has had many songs from his heart which put him at one with his trade. Check it out to see his life and beliefs.
  • Dusk Blackman from Albany, Georgia (u.s.a.)This song is very heart rendering.
  • Dusk Blackman from Albany, Georgia (u.s.a.)Michael was so senual in his overwhelming emotions.
  • P.a from Co. Spgs., CoYet another soulful, deep song by INXS. Michael Hutchence was one of the very best lead singers in rock history. Along with excellent musicianship behind him.
  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdNever Tear Us Apart-brilliant and beautiful down under Australian blues about being caring and heartfelt. Even though he is in the great sky gig, Michael Hutchence touched my heart with his heartbroken Aussie diction-the best poet Australia ever produced! INXS will forever be beilliant. Michael you are missed and gone but certainly not forgotten by me. The most memorable
    blues rock song of the Eighties. Timeless Australian artwork!
  • Ken from Pittsburgh, PaI think this is probably one of the best and most memorable songs of the '80s. Awesome blues sound even 20 plus years on.
