Love is like oxygen
You get too much you get too high
Not enough and you're gonna die
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen
(love is like oxygen)
You get too much you get too high
(you get too much you get too high)
Not enough and you're gonna die (gonna die)
(love is like oxygen)
Love gets you high

Time on my side
I got it all
I've heard that pride
Always comes before a fall

There's a rumour goin' round the town
That you don't want me around
I can't shake off my city blues
Every way I turn I lose

Love is like oxygen
(love is like oxygen)
You get too much you get too high
(you get too much you get too high)
Not enough and you're gonna die (gonna die)
(love is like oxygen)
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen
(love is like oxygen)
You get too much you get too high
(you get too much you get too high)
Not enough and you're gonna die (gonna die)
(love is like oxygen)
Love gets you high

Time is no healer
If you're not there
Lonely fever
Sad words in the air

Some things are better left unsaid
I'm gonna spend my days in bed
I'll walk the streets at night
To be hidden by the city lights, city lights

Love is like oxygen
(love is like oxygen)
You get too much you get too high
(you get too much you get too high)
Not enough and you're gonna die (gonna die)
(love is like oxygen)
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen
(love is like oxygen)
You get too much you get too high
(you get too much you get too high)
Not enough and you're gonna die (gonna die)
(love is like oxygen)
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen
Love is like oxygen
Love is like oxygen

    General Comment:A love song written by the band's guitarist Andy Scott based on an idea from their sound man and some time pianist Trevor Griffin There's no truth in the rumour that the line 'There's a rumour going around the town that you don't want me around' deals with the band planning to sack singer Brian Connolly even though he was fired less than a year after the track was recorded.

    General Comment:all-time favorite song. ever. It doesn't seem to be very well known, but sweet really is an amazing band, great harmonics and everything. In fact, I want to know how they did those cool bass voices. Does anyone in that band really sound like that??
