"Cold Air" as written by Liam Coverdale-howe, Chris Corner, Ian Pickering and Natalie Jane Imbruglia....
Waiting for the last leaf to fall
Can I hear a cry for a dead man to crawl?
Asleep like stones in the well
Empty as you leave your dry seashell

Never seen you come this far
Never thought I'd hope this hard

(Like air) Always looking down upon yourself
(Like air) You live two feet above yourself
(Somewhere) We will always be in parallel
(Out there) It's a place without a hope in hell
(Like air)

Haven't made a sound all week
Tryin' to gather up some promises to keep
I watched as the icicles fell
Pinned to the bottom or drowning, it's hard to tell

You may be human after all (I've never seen you come far)
Must you build yourself so tall

(Like air) Always looking down upon yourself
(Like air) You live two feet above yourself
(Somewhere) We will always be in parallel
(Out there) It's a place without a hope in hell
(Like air)

Tryin' to wash your trace off my skin
Cover up the footprints I've been walkin' in
It's easier to cut you cold
You can keep your waste of space, I'm halfway home

You may be human after all (I've never seen you come far)
Must you build yourself so tall

(Like air) Always looking down upon yourself
(Like air) You live two feet above yourself
(Somewhere) We will always be in parallel
(Out there) It's a place without a hope in hell
(Like air)
