Electric High
Written by Alex Davies (Sony ATV)

I've painted all this over, been working overtime
I’m a little far from heaven, but I’ll survive
Now your coming over, from the haze in the light
and I am stood here watching, watching her cause
I am close to surrender, to the point I forgive her

Take me higher, take me high.
I wanna feel your essence come to life.
Electric high, Electric high.
I just wanna feel, I just wanna feel you come to life

Climbing into spaces as faces crystallize.
I swear that we'll deliver to places we feel right.
Chasing all your diamonds a thousand painted eyes.
Running from the outside, god if I could fly.

Smokes hits the sky line, setting a silver high
diffuse and surrender to the point I forgive her

Take me higher, take me high.
I wanna feel your essence come to life.
Electric high, Electric high.
I just wanna feel, I just wanna feel you come to life

Smokes hits the high light, setting a silver high
diffuse and surrender to the point I forgive her

    General CommentWoo first comment :D
    this is my favourite song atm.. it's amazing :)
    Ok so here's what i think its all about..

    'I've painted all this over, been working overtime
    I'm a little far from heaven, but I'll survive'

    I think there he's gone through a bad break up and is trying to let it all go, trying to be okay again, but its hard work, he keeps thinking about his ex, which he knows he shouldn't do (I'm a little far from heaven)


    'and I am stood here watching, watching her cause
    I am close to surrender, to the point I forgive her'

    He is thinking about his ex all the time and she has this power over him that makes him give into her


    'Take me higher, take me high.
    I wanna feel your essence come to life.
    Electric high, Electric high.
    I just wanna feel, I just wanna feel you come to life'

    His ex gives him this buzz that he just wants to experience again, he also wants to see her happy, because her excitement and her 'electric high' rubs off on him

    well that's some of my theory anyways.. but maybe I'm just seeing it this way coz I'm relating it to persoal experience? I dunno :P

    Epic song though.. I'm so going to ask EM what its all about if i get to meet them at their concert :D :D

    General CommentHmmmm... interesting theory...

    I think this song is along the same lines as muse's song plug in baby... about how playin electric guitar, gives him a high... and how it gives him freedom, how the music itself brings the guitar to life...

    It could be about both an ex and this tho... like playing guiar makes him feel better about the whole situation os sumtin... I duno??! lol!! I tooo will ak alex after the concert, lol!! :P x
