"The Neighbours Can't Breathe" as written by Andrew James Macfarlane, James Graham, Mark Gerard Devine and Craig Orzel....
they're no thoughts of mine, this time
when the paint went dry, don't fight 'cause you're right
did it pass you by, when the shower wasn't on?
you had to lie, your secret's safe and sound

don't frown
don't frown
'cause everybody's wearing black clothes and i'm wearing white
don't frown
don't frown
there's your sister with her answer and she's always right

you keep pulling all the heart strings

you hide it in the cupboard
you're under the sheets
you're frowning and you know it
you're happy
the neighbours can't breathe

you're coming on strong

when your friend went wrong

i'm not in the white when we play hide and seek
i'm not in the white when we play hide and seek

they're no thoughts of mine this time
is your camera blind, don't fight 'cause you're right
will it pass you by, when your sister's dead and gone?
she had to lie, her secret's safe and sound

don't frown
don't frown
'cause everybody's wearing black clothes
and i'm wearing white
don't frown
don't frown
there's your sister with her answer and she's always right

you keep pulling all the heart strings

you hide it in the cupboard
you're under the sheets you're frowning and you know it
you're happy
the neighbours can't breathe

you're coming on strong

when your friend went wrong

i'm not in the white when we play hide and seek

you're playing in the forest
get down on your knees
forgetting where you're from

you're wrong
you're begging please

you're coming on strong

when your friend went wrong

i'm not in the white when we play hide and seek
i'm not in the white when we play hide and seek

although your friend went wrong
i'm not in the white when we play hide and seek
although your friend went wrong
i'm not in the white when we play hide and seek
although your friend went wrong
i'm not in the white when we play hide and seek
although your friend went wrong

    General CommentI might be wrong, but to me it sounds like they say, 'i'm not in the way when we play hide and seek'.. It's the strong Scottish accent on the word 'way' that sounds a little like 'white'.
