You loomed up slowly on the horizon
Blocking the sun like an ocean liner
When I discover I'm living in your shadow
It always comes as a surprise

But way up here
I'm spinning round a lamppost in the rain
Way up here, I remember rain
And I'm whispering directly into your ear

You are perfecting circular breathing
I can't always tell when you're inhaling
So you make it look like you're always giving
But you're always storing little bits away
You're a bit away

But way up here
I'm dancing round a lamppost in the rain
Way up here, I remember rain
And I'm whispering directly into your ear

What does it take to stop getting carried away
By the force of my love
You take my breath away
I'm starting to suffocate
Break the outline of my body, break where I end and you begin
Break - you came too far in
And out and in, and doubt and din again

Every time we breathe out
We let out a little bit of ourselves
It'd be alright if we could exchange
But you don't want to
And I don't blame you
But I'm gonna wanna learn to play the didgeridoo too

Because but way up here
I'm spinning round that lamppost in the rain
