Missy Higgins Steer

Australian singer/songwriter Missy Higgins has released the music video for her new single, “Steer”, from her album “On A Clear Night” which was released in Australia on April 28th. The video is available to view the Missy Higgins MySpace site and the official Missy Higgins site. The video shows Missy as a stunt driver who ‘steers’ away from the daily grind of running into brick walls. Clearly the work is having an effect on her health. She drives into the country and walks into the sunset.

Higgins says of the song, “A lot of the songs on the last album were written from fairly dark places but ‘Steer’ is really the opposite of that. It was inspired by a realisation I had one night on the beach, looking up at this amazingly clear sky above me. It just dawned on me how short life is and how ridiculous it therefore is to spend any of it feeling compromised or unfulfilled. ‘Steer’ just kind of fell out of that moment.”

‘Steer’ was directed by Australian director Nash Edgerton via The Directors Bureau.

Lyrics for Missy Higgins Steer

Feel it falling off like clothing
Taste it rolling on your tongue
See the lights above you glowing
Oh and breathe them deep into your lungs

It was always simple, not hidden hard
You’ve pulling on the strings
Playing puppeteer for kings
And you’ve had enough

But the search ends here
Where the night is totally clear
And your heart is fierce
So now you finally know
That you control where you go
You can steer

So hold this feeling like a newborn
All the freedom surging in your veins
You have opened up a new door
So come on now wind, fire and rain

It was always simple, not hidden hard
You’ve been played at a game
Called remembering your name
And you stuffed it up

But the search ends here
Where the night is totally clear
And your heart is fierce
So now you finally know
That you control where you go
You can steer

Oh
That you control where you go
You can steer

‘Cause you’ve been listening for answers
Oh but the city screams and all your dreams go unheard

But the search ends here
Where the night is totally clear
And your heart is fierce
So now you finally know
That you control where you go
You can steer

Oh
And get out of the box
And step into the clear

Oh
Cause now you finally know
That you can steer
