  • I always flirt with death
    I could kill, but I don't care about it
    I can face your threats
    And stand up straight and tall and shout about it

    I think I'm on another world with you, with you
    I'm on another planet with you, with you

    You get under my skin
    I don't find it irritating
    You always play to win
    But I won't need rehabilitating, oh no

    I think I'm on another world with you, with you
    I'm on another planet with you, with you

    Another girl, another planet
    Another girl, another planet

    Space travels in my blood
    There ain't nothing I can do about it
    Long journeys wear me out
    But I know I can't live without it, oh no

    I think I'm on another world with you, with you
    I'm on another planet with you, with you

    Another girl is loving you now
    Another planet, is holding you down

  • Jose from Australia100% about heroin! ‘Space’ is another word for heroin, so the line goes “space travels in my blood”. Many more references to the use of heroin, plus it’s common Perrett was a heavy user at that time. Love the song.
  • Paul Thompson from NorfolkThe second line is 'I look ill", not "I could kill" (which makes no sense anyway)
