"Halo" as written by Kele Okereke, Matt Tong, Russell Lissack and Gordon Moakes....
It was your hair that did it
It was your hair that lit the fuse
A golden brown halo
Like sunlight peering through trees
I ask you for the time, but I am asking for so much more
A moth to your light bulb, you made my heart beat faster

Paralyze me, with your kiss
Wipe those dirty hands, on me
Maybe we're looking for the same thing
Maybe you're the one who will complete me

Oh how beauty burns, lips and eyes and fingertips
The spark of desire on every point our bodies meet
Behind your eyes were stars, infinite and serene
How I would suffer for you, you fascinate and magnetize me


Sometimes I think, I would float away
If this sadness did not weigh me down.

    General CommentThis is my favourite song off the album. xD
    And yeah, its obviously just about lust, and desire and the search for love. Wanting someone and wondering if they'll 'complete you'. Never gets old.

    'The spark of desire
    On every point our bodies meet'

    I love it.

    General CommentThis song is so amazing. I love the part "I ask you for the time but I am asking for so much more." It's just like when a shy guy talks to a girl he likes. He doesn't know what to say so he just asks for the time just so he can hear the girl's voice. It's so adorable. I also love the part about fingertips. At first I thought it was sort of weird, but now I get that he just loves all the little things about her.

    General CommentThis is easily my favourute song off the new album. I love the way they've managed to mix such beautiful lyrics with upbeat yet slightly dark sounding music, rather than your obvious slow song.
