"Twenty Four Hours" as written by and Joel Pott Steven Roberts....
People rushing left to right
There's pretty faces left to right
I'm just frozen staring into space
Faster than the speed of light
I'm holding on I'm holding tight
'Cause stars are gonna crash into this place

And it's caught wide screen so we don't miss a thing
Now I'm standing clear
'Cause all i waited for is

Closing in
Still got Twenty Four Hours
We're closing in
Still got twenty four hours

This is more than daily bread
It's three degrees, it's something else
And you just take it all into your stride
Couldn't be an accident 'cause I can't see no ambulance
I know that we will work it out this time

And it's caught wide screen so we don't miss a thing
Now I'm standing clear
'Cause all i waited for is

Closing in
Still got Twenty Four Hours
We're closing in
Still got twenty four hours

Closing in
Still got Twenty Four Hours
We're closing in
Still got twenty four hours

It's not over
It's not over
Still got twenty four hours
It's not over

It's not over yet
Still got twenty four hours

    General Commentso... one of my favorites...
    i dont udnerstand everry meanings (im french...)
    but i love the chorus, i dont know.. for me, it juste gives me so much images in head... "we still have 24 hours"...
    for me its "24 hours to share together, dont waste our time..." maybe he talk to a girl
    she know what he feels or not? i dunno...

    General CommentI think this song is about the anticipation of a big event that will take place in the next 24 hours (concert, wedding, etc.). It is something the couple/group has worked for "couldn't be an accident."

    General Comment"This is more than daily bread"
    I thought it was "baited breath"...?

    Anyway, since I always look for depressing undertones, I think this is about cherishing one's last moments with someone who is dying. That's just me...

    General Commentoh hell. i can relate so much. okay, maybe i'm this one who always thinks it's with the guy who is not that courageus to tell the girl of his hearth, that he loves her. but it could bee :D
    see : everytime they meet, he thinks : jea jea, this time im gonna tell her, this time we will work it out. this time the happyend will be on my site.
    but he evrytime goes home alone, with that pulsing Pain in his Left site.

    He imagines the moment he will tell her. ( wide screen, so we don't miss a thing

    General CommentHahahaha, so far every song lyric I looked up in the category of brit-pop has at least one comment about a boy and girl or vice versa. No pun against you or anything Dragic but I just think it's so ironic.


    Cheers,

    General CommentI can't but help to think that this song is about an arguement
    "People rushing left to right
    There's pretty faces left to right
    I'm just frozen staring into space" I think this is him seeing his girlfriend cheating on him and hes just frozen in his tracks

    "And it's caught wide screen so we dont miss a thing" I think this is theres alot going on around him and yet he focuses on his cheating girlfriend making the image feel "widescreen"

    "Couldn't be an accident
    Cause I cant see no ambulance,"
    Hes saying it couldnt of been a drunken mistake or anything accidentle because he can't see the mad rush of pushing the guy/girl of his girlfriend mad rush like an ambulence fast and means theres danger

    "I know that we will work it out this time" This time they will sort their relationship out and its not the first time the relationships gone wrong

    This is how I see the song anyway
    Feel free to contridict me
