This staying alive can kill you
It's taken years off of my life
I build my world within you
But loneliness comes
Can't cure, you're iodine
The world is better for your grace
If I plead insanity
Can I still crash at your place?

There are only so many ambulances to go around
There are only so many accidents...
It’s the universe, coming down

Not tryin to kill you: It's just proof of life
Not tryin to kill you: One day at a time

She feeds off desire
She's in me
To worlds I'd never get
I'm sure she'll be with me until the very end

There are only so many ambulances
The less you ask, the more you see
There are only so many accidents...
It's the universe and nothing's free


Not tryin to kill you: One day, one day

Oh! life can be so unwell
Oh! speeding between heaven and hell
But lately there's been so much to tell

There are only so many ambulances(x2)

    General Commentcritics claim that this song is just a different sounding glycerine type balad. But then again the critics never really like Bush either. To hell with that
