Clean up your eyes, and I'll dance alone with you in daylight
Your skin reminds me of sleeping on clouds in my mind
Clean up your eyes this time
Clean up your eyes this time

You breathe in when I breathe out
It's not likely I'd ever feel this far
From someone, from anyone at all
If you leave now you leave with a piece of me, and a piece of us
It's not likely I'd ever feel at all

All things aside, I'm not sure if I can help you this time
You show your eyes, and I see your face for the first time
But let's not hide this time
Let's not hide this time

You breathe in when I breathe out
It's not likely I'd ever feel this far
From someone, from anyone at all
If you leave now you leave with a piece of me, and a piece of us
It's not likely I'd ever feel at all

What you don't have
What you don't need
What you can't reach
What you can't see

You breathe in when I breathe out
It's not likely I'd ever feel this far
From someone, from anyone at all
If you leave now you leave with a piece of me, and a piece of us
It's not likely I'd ever feel it anymore

Do do do do do do, do do do do do
Do do do do do do, do do do do do
Do do do do do do, do do do do do
Do do do do do do, do do do do do
Do do do do do do, do do do do do
Do do do do do do, do do do do do
Do do do do do do, do do do do do
Do do do do do do, do do do do do

Clean up your eyes this time
Clean up your eyes this time...

    General Commenthow can no one have commented this song?
    It's so amazing! It lifts me up after a hard day, it makes me feel free, I'm not sure why
    i think its a song of admiration

    General CommentI know, it really is a quite wonderful song. It has one of the best choruses i've ever heard. One of the highlights of this year's T in the Park.

    General Commentthis song is amazing! i agree with rennie the chorus is one of the best ive hear! Im not exactly sure what this song means but i think its about loving someone but its just not working, although both people want it to work. the line "you breath in when i breath out" is trying to show that the two people in the relationship aren't in-sync. I love this song and i find it very inspirational for some reason!

    General CommentMost listenable track of 2007... i fucking love it.

    I think the chorus pretty much says it all... and i think the lyrics on here are wrong...
    i think its 'your breathing in when i breathe out' you can hear it if you listen carefully.

    But yeah... about a relationship going to pieces no matter how hard they both try.

    The vids awesome aswell... its like the self help group from fight club if anyones seen it.
    Im sure you made the same realisation if you had.

    Cheers

    General Commentit is like fight club isnt it!
    it has a little marla and bob in it methinks
    but still insanely uplifting track, as i ve mentioned i think its about admiration and probably people realising a relationship isn't working out

    sad but beautiful and wonderfully sung hoorah!

    General CommentYeah, I can't stop listening to this song. It really is amazing. Especially the bit when he sings all the "do do"s, it's just a lovely song :)

    General Commenti think it is about drugs or an addiction his lover has, hes trying to help her 'You breathe in when I breathe out ' ,
    but doesnt know if he can because she seems to run away from the problem and consequently she runs away from him

    'All things aside, I'm not sure if I can help you this time
    You show your eyes, and I see your face for the first time
    But let's not hide this time
    Let's not hide this time'

    anyway brilliant song and brilliant band, cant wait for the album!

    General CommentBest song of 2007!! Without a shadow of a doubt!
    (Closely followed by Morning Runner - Burning Benches)
    Anyway, this song hassss to be about a person who feels they just are not in sync with their partner, everythings falling apart: 'All things aside, Im not sure if I can help you this time...' - Sign of desperation!

    100% AMAZING!!!!

    General CommentIt's actually written about Andy (the bassist) when he was going through at hard time by the singer who's also his brother.

    The lyrics here are right aswell btw.
    It's an amazing song.. So sweet!
