    Is the Austrailian version different from the one available in the States? I was going to buy it, but the track lists I've seen on Amazon and Barnes & Noble seem short. I've seen the song "Come Into My Sleep" credited to that CD, but it's not listed. I think there's a difference of 2-4 songs, unless I'm mistaken and those songs are on another album.

    Edit: More like 12 songs on one and 19 on the other, unless this longer list is totally off.

    Just dug out my (Australian) copy of this album and found 12 tracks:<BR><BR>Into my arms<BR>Lime tree arbour<BR>People ain't no good<BR>Brompton oratory<BR>There is a kingdom<BR>(Are you) The one I've been looking for<BR>Where do we go now but nowhere?<BR>West country girl<BR>Black hair<BR>Idiot prayer<BR>Far from me<BR>Green eyes<BR><BR>I would be interested to find out if there are different tracks on other versions of this album. I would be very annoyed if Nick was witholding songs from his home-town crowd :D

    Okay, thanks. That site's probably just wrong. If I could get "Come Into My Sleep" with the rest of them I was sure going to try =D. Trying to decide which CD I want to buy. I was thinking Tender Prey, but then I started really enjoying "(Are You) The One That I've Been Waiting For?" "Ain't Gonna Rain Anymore" and the like.

    How could he be jilting the Aussies? All he does over in the States is go to New York, Chicago, and a few other places way too far from me. If he were in DC, I'd consider finding a way to get up there, but really. That DVD coming out in August should be really good, at any rate.
