  • Neath an avalanche
    Soft as moss
    I'm a creeping-in, intangible sense of loss
    I'm the memory you can't get out your head
    If I leave you now
    You'll wish you were somewhere else instead

    I'm the manta ray
    I'm the louse
    I am the photograph
    They found in your burned down house
    I'm the sound of money washing down the drain
    I am the pack of lies
    The baby that keeps you sane, hey

    Gates of heaven are open wide
    God help me baby I'm trapped inside
    Feel like I'm buried alive

    I'm, I'm the bottom line
    Of the joke
    I'm in ecstasy
    Spilling like bright egg-yolk
    I'm the thoughts you're too ashamed to ever share
    And I am the smell of it
    You're trying to wash out of your hair

    Gates of heaven are open wide
    God help me baby I'm lost inside
    Feels like I'm buried alive
    The possibilities limitless
    Just give me something that's more than this
    One shot and I'll never miss
    Yes

    I'm the babe that sleeps
    Through the Blitz
    I am a sudden and quite unexpected twist
    I am your one true love who sleeps with someone else
    I am your nemesis
    Baby I'm life sweet life itself, yeah, yeah (yeah) Writer/s: DAVID GRAY, NEILL MACCOLL, ROBBIE MALONE
