"Radio" as written by James Corr, Andrea Jane Corr, Sharon Corr and Caroline Corr....
It's late at night, and I'm feeling down
There are couples standing on the street
Sharing summer kisses and city sounds

So I step inside, for a glass of wine.
With a full glass and an empty heart,
I search for something to occupy my mind

But you are in my head, swimming forever in my head,
Tangled in my dreams, swimming forever

So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
All the songs we used to know (listen to the radio)
So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
Remember where we used to go

Now its morning light, and it's cold outside,
Caught up in a distant dream I try
And think that you are by my side

So I leave my bed, and I try to dress,
Wondering why my mind plays tricks
And fools me into thinking you are there

But you're just in my head,
Swimming forever in my head,
Not lying in my bed, just swimming forever

So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
All the songs we used to know (listen to the radio)
So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
Remember where we used to go
I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
All the songs we used to know (listen to the radio)
I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
Remember how we used to go

You are in my head, swimming forever in my head
Tangled in my dreams, swimming forever (swimming forever)
Swimming forever...

So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
All the songs we used to know (listen to the radio)
So I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
Remember where we used to go
I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)
All the songs we used to know (listen to the radio)
I listen to the radio (listen to the radio)

    General CommentFANTASTIC SONG one of the best from the 'in Blue' album. I love the lyrics and the backing track to the song. Written by Sharon Corr who wrote this song the day after she wrote the Corrs other hit 'So Young' [she s too fuckin good!!!]

    Best part of the song:
    Now it's morning light
    And it's cold outside
    Caught up in a distant dream
    I turn and think that you are by my side

    So I leave my bed
    And I try to dress
    Wandering why my mind plays tricks
    And fools me into thinking you are there

    But you're just in my head
    Swimming forever in my head
    Not lying in my bed
    Just swimming forever

    EXCELLENT!!!!!**********

    General CommentAmazing song, I think it's about someone who is thinking of an ex. and simple things like songs on the radio are reminding her of them. Great vocals.

    General CommentI love how the music is cheery but the lyrics aren't really.
    It seems to me as if she's trying to forget, or trying to put on a brave face.
    I think the radio is supposed to take her mind off the guy, but it doesn't obviously. What does?
    Unrequited love.
    It's something people can easily relate to.
    I love it.
    (Not unrequited love, the song =p)

    General CommentPersonally, I think her lover might have died. The chorus is a bit of a giveaway. If she was trying to get over a break-up, she would be upset by hearing "their songs" on the radio, or "all the songs they used to know." Instead, she listens to the radio of her own free will, and embraces the memories, because that's all that is left of her love. The violin solo seems very whimsical and reminiscent, almost in mourning. Other lyrics make me think this disconnect happened suddenly and unexpectedly, like an untimely death. Lyrics like, "I turn and think that you are by my side," and "my mind... fools me into thinking you are there." So, this song would be about a lover who recently passed, and his/her lover grappling with the shock and despair of their death.
