If all that you need is the air that I breathe
Is that why you're standing so close
So close to me?

And she walked into the room like the belle of the ball
Her shadows casting shapes across apposing walls
She walked up to me, and in this live lamp-light
She said: "You look just like a liberal but still dressed to the right."

Well her boyfriend's a dick but he's crashed out in the hall
Singing songs about love, about lust, about Millwall
And her eyes are so convincing and her moves are that slick
But the thing about this quicksand is it's never that quick.

And go home if you're looking for such better days
You know somebody's got to make this change
And let go of this endless quest for paradise
You were lost to the dark when you blew out the lights

If all that you need is the air that I breathe
Is that why you're standing so close to me?
And if all you can see is the blood that I bleed
When I close my eyes I'll try not to breathe
So constantly

And it's low infidelity when you can't even start
To recover the pieces of the fire that's in your heart
She used to be a model, but these days she stays in bed.
She can't leave the house since voting for Nick Clegg

Now she's going underground
Where I know she'll be fine.
She met her last three lovers on the Circle Line
With a hand over my mouth and a chair under the door
The thing about these morals is, you always want more.

And go home if you're looking for such better days
You know somebody's got to make this change
And let go of this endless quest for paradise
You were lost to the dark when you blew out the lights

If all that you need is the air that I breathe
Is that why you're standing so close to me?
And if all you can see is the blood that I bleed
When I close my eyes I'll try not to breathe

Go home if you're looking for such better days.

If all that you need is the air that I breathe
Is that why you're standing so close to me?
And if all you can see is the blood that I bleed
When I close my eyes I'll try not to breathe
