Who Needs Air
The Classic Crime Lyrics


I long to taste adventure like the nature of the sea
Always moving, always hiding, all the creatures from beneath
Singing silent songs of sadness, my heart waits for its chance
To dance upon the ashes of my burned up little plans

And I stand alone before the night
My nakedness is so clear in the glow of the moonlight
Life is old but so short
We are young, we want more

I'm drowning but I don't care
Because when you got what I got, what I got
Who needs air? I don't need air

My addiction too danger like the rush of the sea
Like a wave on the rocks, the lessons crash down on me
I don't need to prove the world to you, only to myself
So step back, look away as I dive into the swell

I'm drowning but I don't care
Because when you got what I got, what I got
Who needs air?

So take me down to the river like a little child
And take my hand and tell me it's okay to be wild
I never knew the world until I saw through your eyes
I never knew myself until I ripped off my disguise

I'm drowning but I don't care
Because when you got what I got, what I got
Who needs air?

I'm drowning
(I have come to the realization that)
But I don't care
(Life is more than what I have accomplished and)

Because when you got what I got, what I got
(Life is more then the realization that)
Who needs air?
(We have accomplished nothing at all)

I'm drowning
(True success is so selfless so drown in the)
But I don't care
(Lyrics of your life and give up the air that you breathe)

Because when you got what I got, what I got
(You don't need anything)
I don't need air
(You don't need anything)

I don't need air

I long to taste adventure like the nature of the sea
Always moving, always hiding, all the creatures from beneath
Singing silent songs of sadness, my heart waits for its chance
To dance upon the ashes of my burned up little plans

And I stand alone before the night
My nakedness is so clear in the glow of the moonlight
Life is old but so short
We are young, we want more

I'm drowning but I don't care
Because when you got what I got, what I got
Who needs air? I don't need air

My addiction too danger like the rush of the sea
Like a wave on the rocks, the lessons crash down on me
I don't need to prove the world to you, only to myself
So step back, look away as I dive into the swell

Because when you got what I got, what I got
Who needs air?

So take me down to the river like a little child
And take my hand and tell me it's okay to be wild
I never knew the world until I saw through your eyes
I never knew myself until I ripped off my disguise

God is always there, just hold up faith. He always loves. He's always there. He has limitless mercy. God is good, all the time.

Chelsea Johnson

Wow, this is the first time I've heard of this band. This song is epic.

Cole Hintermeister

+Chelsea Johnson I've never heard of them until like last week. I'm so confused as to why. This is amazing.

Rohan Sinha

I've loved them for years and I just heard this today. Check out Flight of Kings , its one of my other favourites by them. Heavier than this but great lyrics and tight drums and vocals.

Soniti1324

I haven't heard this album since 2006, and it suddenly came back to me today.

These guys are so much better than they ever had the chance to be.

Mack Williams

TCC is what music is all about. Meaning, dedication, and purpose. Unlike 99 percent of the crap on the radio today.

Rip4D

The Classic Crime should be more popular... they are one of the best talents I have ever heard and definitely deserve more credit.

Coleman Sanders

one of the best songs ever

Stephen Rader

Coleman Sanders that is very true

We as humans search for answers in all things. You can find meaning in every song, to truly know why it was written, it's true meaning is found only with who wrote and sang it... most artist want us to find why this song speaks to me to us, and then use it to make a human connection.
