"The Wild Ones" as written by Bernard Butler and Brett Anderson....
There's a song playing on the radio
Sky high in the airwaves on the morning show
And there's a lifeline slipping as the record plays
And as I open the blinds in my mind I'm believing that you could stay
And oh if you stay I'll chase the rain blown fields away
We'll shine like the morning and sin in the sun
Oh if you stay, we'll be the wild ones running with the dogs today

There's a song playing through another wall
All we see and believe is the D.J. and debts dissolve
And it's a shame the plane is leaving on this sunny day
'Cause on you my tattoo will be bleeding and the name will stain
But oh if you stay we'll ride from disguised suburban graves
We'll go from the bungalows where the debts still grow every day

And oh if you stay I'll chase the rain blown fears away
We'll shine like the morning and sin in the sun oh if you stay
We'll be the wild ones running with the dogs today
We'll be the wild ones running with the dogs today.

    General CommentWell, well, "stolen". Like it was a very original line that probably nobody wrote before Roxy Music...

    General CommentYeah, I'm sure no one said "There's a song playing on the radio" before Roxy Music or Suede. Probably a case of accidental "theft".

    General CommentThis song is sad, but has such a summery, holiday-ish feeling to it in my opinion. It's probably just the line about the plane leaving on a sunny day, but I think it's also the general dreamy mood that makes me feel relaxed like I do when I am on a Summer holiday. Can't wait for July!
