TITLE. LYRICS

Peel Session version

The sound of music

See my true reflection
Cut off my own connections
I can see life getting harder
So sad is this sensation
Reverse the situation
I can't see it getting better

I'll walk you through the heartbreaks
Show you all the out-takes
I can't see it getting higher
Systematically degraded
Emotionally a scapegoat
I can't see it getting higher

Perverse and unrealistic
Try to make it all stick
I can't see it getting harder
Hollow now, I'm burnt out
All I need's a way out
I can't see life getting higher

Love, life, don't you feel higher?
Love, life, don't you feel higher?
Higher, higher, higher, higher
