lyrics

Where did the air go?
I don’t know, I don’t know
Got lost in the glow
Of an ember, and I remember when
I brought the matches, you cut the trees
But when the smoke came up we forgot somehow we had to make room to breathe

This house needs oxygen
If we’re ever gonna make it a home again
No way to start a fire if you choke on smoke and let it swallow your desire
Oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen we need oxygen

Your twigs and tinder aren’t enough spark the cinders
This flame is suffocating fast, it won’t last
Between the sheets we had the friction and the heat
But we let the fumes engulf us in a breathless, airless room

This house needs oxygen
If we’re ever gonna make it a home again
No way to start a fire if you choke on smoke and let it swallow your desire
Oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen we need oxygen

You strike a match, and let it burn, just call it one more lesson learned that you need air to breathe
Let’s strike a match and watch it burn, just call it one more lesson learned that we need air to breathe, to breathe
We’ll strike a match and let it burn, just call it one more lesson learned that we need air to breathe
I’ll strike a match and let it burn, just call it one more lesson learned that we need air to breathe

This house needs oxygen
If we’re ever gonna make it a home again
No way to start a fire if you choke on smoke and let it swallow your desire
This house needs oxygen
If we’re ever gonna make it a home again
No way to start a fire if you choke on smoke and let it swallow your desire
Oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen, oxygen
Oxygen, oxygen, can we fix what we broke again? oxygen, oxygen, we need oxygen
