"The Malibu Highlife" as written by and Luke Andrew/libman Smith....
I don't see the way, the way you see
Or feel the way you're feelin'
But I can see how you look
And I can feel how your skin feels

Uh, yeah
Ooh, yeah
Uh, yeah
Ooh, yeah
Uh, yeah
Ooh, yeah

That's what I love

I press my ear
Your chest, I couldn't hear a heartbeat
Because you're cold, wah oh, wah oh

Uh, yeah
Ooh, yeah
Uh, yeah
Ooh, yeah
Uh, yeah
Ooh, yeah

That's what I love

Bright, hot nights
The soft soft morning light
And you
My cool, cool ice, you go
"You've lost every ounce of special magic love"
I don't know, girl
Where the hell'd that love and feeling go?

You were always my favourite colour
But now the colour has stained my shirt
My ears are bloody and bleeding
Turns the closed-captions on
(get out!) before I have a chance to change my mind
Don't wanna see you back here a second time
Say you wanna try to light the flame
Won't never ever be the same

I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with what we do
I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with what we do
I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with what we do
I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with what we do
I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with what we do
I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with what we do
I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with what we do
I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with what we do

I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with what we do

I'm not in love with you
I'm in love with what we do

    General Commenti think that this song is about the realization of falling out of love with a person "i couldnt feel a heart beat" "where the hell did that loving feeling go?". Maybe still likes the idea of the lover "im not in love with you im in love with what we do"
    pretty straight forward, i think.

    not sure where the dogs barking and the police sirens came from... but its all good :)
