"27" as written by and Simon Neil....
I stroke your silken skin, kiss you goodbye, your eyes just pierce me through
I am bleeding with blood I'd give to you, to be the way we were
I still feel the pain in my heart, thoughts once pure are now diluted

We sat and watched the sun go down
We wrapped together in each other's arms
Never felt so complete as when we're alone on the sand at night

I still feel the pain in my heart, thoughts once pure are now diluted

I love the way your hair hangs over your eyes, crush me with your stare
If I could fly to you I would to be the way we were
I still feel the pain in my heart, thoughts once pure are now diluted
It's alright now, it's alright now, it's alright now, it's alright now.

    General CommentIt is 'Thoughts once pure are now diluted' and it gets me every time, I feel this is a song I can relate to in many different ways.
    Also notice that the song is 3:27 long, conincidence possibly? Probably actually, scrap that.

    I love it, its amazing.

    General Commentthis is a real stab in the dark, perhaps it is how many hours or days have passed since his breakup with the girl, 27 hours / 57 hours. shows the development of his thoughts about the breakup

    General Commentfools, those lyrics are wrong. it's

    I stroke your silken skin, kiss you goodbye, your eyes just pierce me through
    I am bleeding with blood I’d give to you, to be the way we were
    I still feel the pain in my heart, thoughts once pure are now diluted

    We sat and watched the sin go down
    We wrapped together in each other’s arms
    Never felt so complete as when we’re alone on the sand at night

    I still feel the pain in my heart, thoughts once pure are now diluted

    I love the way your hair hangs over your eyes, crush me with your stare
    If I could fly to you I would to be the way we were
    I still feel the pain in my heart, thoughts once pure are now diluted
    It’s alright now, It’s alright now, It’s alright now, It’s alright now

    General CommentIsn't it "thoughts once pure now diluted"?

    I'm drunk and if I'm wrong i'm not too fussed tbh, diluted makes more sense though. Nothing is pure when it's diluted though :)
