"Busy" as written by Oliver Stanley Murs, Martin Brammer and Adam Stuart Argyle....
Weekends in bed, no scramble eggs, or bacon
I just have time for you
Backs on the grass, heads in the clouds, we
Closed our eyes
Enjoy the view

We don't wanna hear
The real world passing by
Saying that we're crazy

We spend all our time lying side by side
Going nowhere, it's really something
Getting busy doing nothing
We spend all our time running for our lives
Going nowhere, it's really something
Getting busy, doing nothing.

No magazines or DVD's we both got
Better things to do
I'll hold your hand
Or shall we dance together
It's so hard to choose

Every time we hear
The whole world rushing by
I know that we're not crazy

We spend all our time lying side by side
Going nowhere, it's really something
Getting busy doing nothing
We spend all our time running for our lives
Going nowhere, it's really something
Getting busy, doing nothing

Should be working hard
Instead of lying here naked
Phone rings but I wont take it
'Cause you only get one life, only get one life

All our time lying side by side
Going nowhere, it's really something
Getting busy doing nothing
We spend all our time running for our lives
Going nowhere, it's really something
Getting busy, doing nothing

All our time, doing nothing
All our time, getting busy doing nothing

    My InterpretationMy opinion is that this song is referring to the fact that people spend so much time wasting their time rushing about doing things that in the end are not really that important at all and in the process neglect the things that are, like their relationships. "it's really something
    Getting busy doing nothing (nothing of any real importance)
    We spend all our time running for our lives (about how we are all so wrapped up in our own lives we rarely have time for other people anymore.)
    Going nowhere" (people don't often stop to think where their going in life.)
    Basically a song about people rushing around from a to b and never stopping to consider the things that really matter in life, but the guy in the song is saying it's not like that for him and his woman. They take time to enjoy life and each other but the rest of the world thinks that their just crazy for not keeping up in the rat race and not constantly rushing around searching for significance in life. But he realizes that it's not really them whose crazy but everyone else who isn't really living but wasting their time doing things that are meaningless."Every time we hear
    The whole world rushing by
    I know that we're not crazy." "'Cause you only get one life, only get one life"
    (It's trying to get people to stop for a minute and think about their life, because as the song says - you only get one life.)
