when he’s not around lyrics – corrs

i can’t breathe, i can’t sleep

he’s uncool an unsophisticat
he’s a tightrope walker on an open path
he’s a maze of curiosity
he is the living bread that cures my appet*te

i find that i can’t breathe and i can’t sleep
when he’s not around
everyday is bluey grey
when he’s not in town

his mystique is one of innocence
i feel i’m lounging in lovely in his big blue eyes
and i would be preening in paradise
if i were always beside him like a siamese

i find that i can’t breathe and i can’t sleep
when he’s not around
everyday is bluey grey
when he’s not in town
when he’s not in town

[solos]

can i keep him in my galaxy
(can i keep him in my galaxy)
can he live within my fantasy
(can he live within my fantasy)

i find that i can’t breathe and i can’t sleep
when he’s not around
everyday is bluey grey
when he’s not in town

i find that i can’t breathe and i can’t sleep, (i can’t sleep)
when he’s not around
everyday is bluey grey
when he’s not in town
when he’s not in town, yeah-ie…

[fade out]
