Well all my colours bleed for you
Can't you see them running?
My hazy hills glow green for you
You could just call me, you know?

On my mobile number cause I'm always in
And I was just thinking about you on emergency
72 72 72 yeah

Well all my lust comes down to dust
Can't you see it crumbling?
My hazy hill come down to rust
But you could call me, you know? mmm

You're pulling me out of this whirlpool
Your making me breathe again
And I was just thinking about you on emergency

72 72 72 yeah

And I just can't forget 72
And I just can't forget

72 72 72 72 72 72 yeah 72 72 72 72 72 72 yeah
72 72 72 72 72 72 yeah 72 72 72 72 72 72 yeah 72

    General CommentTis about emergency contraception - the morning after pill. You got 72 hours to take it, see?
    More or less, anyway.

    General CommentAhhh its not about emergency contraception - i saw them talking briefly about this song and its actually about the breaking down of Olly's relationship. It all happened over the space of 72 hours basically and its about the breaking down process. He felt out of control, like it was out of his hands.

    General CommentThis song is about Olly's breakup with his girlfriend. It all took place over the span of 72 hours and its about how he felt out of control, just like sitting in his flat feeling like he's in a whirlpool etc.

    General CommentI thought it was going to be linked to the book "Emergency 18", a story about bullying told by two young male friends aged about.. twelve. Because there's two boys in Turin Brakes, but now they've grown up and they're revised their catalogue of emergencies to add break-ups.
    Liked the 'pill theory.

    General CommentI just LOVE this song !! is the song of the month in my i Pod, the melody is just great, but why Emergency? if its about a break-up situation, why call it emergency? the pill theory makes more sense but .....
