"Islands" as written by and Malcolm Middleton Aidan Moffat....
We were lying in bed, staring at the moon and I was wondering if I was supposed to be in love. But we couldn't quite decide if the moon was full. But I thought, well, tonight it's full enough. And this morning I was casually trying to sniff my fingers on the way back home. I could smell you and I felt like a little boy. And we've been on these open seas far too long So take a breath, take my hand, there's land ahoy.
