"When He's Not Around" as written by James Corr, Andrea Jane Corr, Sharon Corr and Caroline Corr....
I can't breathe and I can't sleep

He's uncool and unsophisticated
He's a tightrope walker on an open path
He's a maze of curiosity
He is the living bread that cures my appetite

I find that I can't breathe and I can't sleep
When he's not around
Everyday is bluey grey
When he's not in town

His mystique is one of innocence
I feel I'm lounging in lovely in his big blue eyes
And I would be preening in paradise
If I were always beside him like a Siamese

I find that I can't breathe and I can't sleep
When he's not around
Everyday is bluey grey
When he's not in town, when he's not in town

Can I keep him in my galaxy
Can he live within my fantasy

I find that I can't breathe and I can't sleep
When he's not around
Everyday is bluey grey
When he's not in town

I find that I can't breathe and I can't sleep, yeah (I can't sleep)
When he's not around
Everyday is bluey grey
When he's not in town when he's not in town, yeah

    My OpinionI'm not sure whether this is about someone she's already with, or someone she sees from afar and finds attractive. I'm leaning towards the latter, only because of the fact he's a "curiosity" and sounds mysterious. I dunno! And when she says "can he live within my fantasy" as if to say that she has all these ideas about him. It's a little relevant to how I'm feeling about someone right now lol... I barely know him but I hate when I don't see him around haha... Just like knowing he's there even if I don't talk to him.
