that's in the air tonight.
It's sparkin' my receiver,
it feels like dynamite.
I got the message
but I wanna get it straight from you.

My mind is electric,
I'm about to blow a fuse.
The cockpit is empty
so shoot it down the tube.
I got the message
but I wanna get it straight from you.

I've got to make a connection.
I'm on needles and pins.
