Look outside
You don't say a thing as we lose them all
Nothing is the same in this old town
So come inside
Rolling down the stairs you break her fall
No one is the same in this old town

You said, our love will never die
It never was the same in this old town

So we dance to save them all
We asked to save them all
We tried to save them all
You didn't have to kill them all
So we dance to save them all
We asked to save them all
We tried to save them all
You didn't have to kill them all

You will never tell me exactly what you want
You don't say a thing as we lose them all

You said, our love will never die
It never was the same in this old town

So we dance to save them all
We asked to save them all
We tried to save them all
You didn't have to kill them all
So we dance to save them all
We asked to save them all
We tried to save them all
You didn't have to kill them all

We've fallen
We've fallen
We fall apart

We've fallen
We've fallen
We fall apart

So we dance to save them all
We asked to save them all
We tried to save them all
You didn't have to kill them all

We've fallen
We've fallen
We fall apart

We've fallen
We've fallen
We fall apart

    Song FactAndy: "I needed a change of scenery when writing this album so I moved down to London for a month or so, where I wrote this song, the title track and "Leave The House". Musically, this came together in an afternoon, I wanted a sparse, synth-based song that was similar to something from "Faith" by The Cure, kind of like our previous record but on a much bigger scale."

    James: "There's times when Andy will send me some music over and I'll instantly think this could be a really special song on the record and I start writing straight away, that's happened when he sent the music over for "Cold Days From The Birdhouse", "I Became A Prostitute" and "Nil". That didn't happen when he sent over the music for this song, although I do now think this is a really important song for us. I sent him over my melodies and rough lyrics but said: "I'm sorry man, I don't know if what I've done is any good". He phoned me after he listened to what I'd done and said: "You're talking shite. I just need to rearrange something in it and you'll see". He sent the demo over the next day and he was right. I can't remember what he did but it transformed the song for me. The lyrics really sum up the overall themes of the record. Andy and I played it for the first time at a session for Bandstand Busking in London and it felt really special. The reception from the crowd felt like we'd written a special song and its had the same reaction every time we've played it since."
