Air-conditioning is cold,
summer's hot and love is old
I wish I was smaller,
a little creepy crawler.

There's lovers' sin in this town,
lovers cannot let down,
the summer's hot as hell here, you know,
if we think we can drink now,
we won't stop cause we don't know how,

it's cold, but we love
how it feels alright

I'll sweat it all out, you sweat a lot too
we heart the same, the same black and blue

ohh ohhhh , I wanna catch my death of cold
ohh ohhhhh , cause I'm scared I'm growing old
ohhh oh oh , don't return the love I gave
ohhhh oh oh, you're still my favourite

Troubles win in this town,
Troubles don't turn upside-down,
ohh - they shit on the last bit of fun

There's sin all around,
Lovers cannot let down,
and the winter wears and tears our bones.

There's a man in this town
he's shooting us down,
he thinks he's a big man but he doesnt know anything about us or anything at all.

At night he lies awake,
and his heart aches,
cause its cold - ohh ohh old,
he sweats it out all the night through,
then he throws up all over me and you.

ohh ohhh, I wanna catch my death of cold
ohhh ohhh, cause I'm scared of growin' old
ohh oh ohh, don't return the love I gave you
ohhh oh oh, you're still my favourite


ohh ohhh, I wanna catch my death of cold
ohhh ohhh, cause I'm scared I'm growin' old
ohh oh ohh, don't return the love I gave
ohhh oh oh, you're still my favourite

Air-conditioning is cold,
summer's hot and love is old
I wish I was even smaller,
a little creepy crawler.

    General CommentThis is the version I have:
    Air-Conditioning is cold.
    Summer's hot and love is old.
    I wish I was smaller.
    A little creepy crawler.

    There's lovers' sin in this town.
    Lovers cannot let down.
    The summer's hot as hell here, you know.
    If we think we can drink now,
    We won't stop 'cause we don't know how.
    It's cold, but we love how it feels all right.

    I sweat it all out, you sweat a lot too.
    We hurt the same, the same black and blue.
    I wanna catch my death a cold
    'Cause I'm scared of growing old.
    Don't return the love I gave.
    You're still my favorite.

    Troubles win this town,
    Troubls don't turn upside-down.
    They shit on the last bit of fun.

    There's sin all around.
    Lovers cannot let down.
    And the winter wears and tears our bones.

    There's a man in this town.
    He's shooting us down.
    He thinks he's a big man but he doesn't know anything about us or at all.

    At night, he lies awake,
    And his heart aches,
    'Cause it's cold.
    He sweats it out all the night through.
    Then he throws up all over me and you.

    I wanna catch my death a cold,
    'cause I'm scared of growing old.
    Don't turn the love I gave.
    You're still my favorite.

    I wanna catch my death a cold,
    'cause I'm scared of growing old.
    Don't turn the love I gave.
    You're still my favorite.

    Air-Conditioning is cold.
    Summer's hot and love is old.
    I wish I was even smaller.
    A little creepy crawler.

    General CommentHe said in an interview that he thinks it's strange that being openly gay is such a big deal and affects the way people look at his music but I think this song is definitely about being gay and how hard acceptance can be in his town. That and also commentary on his relationship. The same black and blue that they hurt is the criticism for being gay.
