Counting 1,2,3,4
Consequence can bear resemblance
To a swinging door
The way I’m acting is ridiculous
Like a dog in heat – following and sniffing your tail
What is wrong with me?
I know, I know

Cos your’e a delicate feather that swings in the air
It’s a vision I carry so sorry if I stare
And I have to be careful you’re a
Bubble in my hand

So we stole a car, for some release
But we didn’t get far – cos I couldn’t drive
And I made up words, for some release
Cos all we could say was gibberish slurs
And I distanced myself, for some release
Then developed my love for you, when I couldn’t sleep

Counting 1,2,3,4
The times I couldn’t breathe when I kissed you
Wanting more and more
I never felt this way before
Really something new
Or really something deliciously dangerous
And it’s only you
But you’re wild, you’re wild

Cos your’e a delicate feather that swings in the air
It’s a vision I carry so sorry if I stare
And I have to be careful you’re a
Bubble in my hand

So we stole a car, for some release
But we didn’t get far – cos I couldn’t drive
And I made up words, for some release
Cos all we could say was gibberish slurs
And I distanced myself, for some release
Then developed my love for you, when I couldn’t sleep

Uh whoa, uh whoa
When I couldn’t sleep
Uh whoa, uh whoa, uh whoa-oh

When I couldn’t sleep at night (x7)
When I when I when I when I-I

    My OpinionI wish other people knew about Wallis . She is so amazing and is my inspiration.

    i think this song is just simply about a lover who she was afraid of loosing

    "Cos your’e a delicate feather that swings in the air "

    and meaning to she became more and more involved

    "The times I couldn’t breathe when I kissed you
    Wanting more and more
    I never felt this way before
    Really something new
    Or really something deliciously dangerous "
