lyrics

5. Strange Disease

Stealing glances, too late for advances - you're
spoken for and I'm a coward. I'm always falling
for a pretty face, and I know I don't really know
you, but I'm in outer space and I want to come
down - I'm sick of flying. I want to come down,
I'm so sick of flying

The air gets thin up here, this rarified atmosphere.
The middle of the night, just cold philosophy.
I wondered if you might become my wife, but
these fantasies and dreams cut like a knife. Oh,
I should know - I destroyed my life with it, this
strange disease, I destroyed my life with it. Yeah,
I've destroyed lives with it

The way your hair falls around your face, and
your smile lights your eyes – well, here I go again.
You'd think that I'd be wise to this by now, but
I'm swallowing the hook and I'm in anyhow. It's
a strange disease, it feels like dying. Such a
strange disease, I feel I'm dying a little bit faster now.

Stealing glances, too late for advances - you're
spoken for and I'm a coward. I'm always falling
for a pretty face, and I know I don't really know
you, but I'm in outer space and I want to come
down - I'm sick of flying. I want to come down,
I'm so sick of flying. I want to come down now.
