About Love Is Like Oxygen

"Love Is Like Oxygen" is a song by the British band Sweet, co-written by the group's guitarist Andy Scott and Trevor Griffin, a musician who had played with various unsuccessful bands before becoming a roadie and sound engineer, and released in January 1978. The song was a departure from earlier recordings by the Sweet, which were more guitar-driven and featured high vocal harmonies. The extended album version of the song (6 minutes 57 seconds), which appeared on their album Level Headed, incorporates strings and has some disco elements. Their first release on the Polydor label after their departure from RCA, it was also their last Top 10 hit, reaching No. 4 in New Zealand, No. 6 in Switzerland, No. 8 in Belgium, Canada, and the United States, No. 9 in United Kingdom, and No. 10 in West Germany. Later that year it was honoured with a Song of the Year nomination at the Ivor Novello Awards, although beaten by "Baker Street" by Gerry Rafferty. The song is frequently included on greatest hits compilations, usually in its edited single version.

Love is like oxygen
You get too much you get too high
Not enough and you're gonna die
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen
(love is like oxygen)
You get too much you get too high
(you get too much you get too high)
Not enough and you're gonna die (gonna die)
(love is like oxygen)
Love gets you high

Time on my side
I got it all
I've heard that pride
Always comes before a fall

There's a rumour goin' round the town
That you don't want me around
I can't shake off my city blues
Every way I turn I lose

Love is like oxygen
(love is like oxygen)
You get too much you get too high
(you get too much you get too high)
Not enough and you're gonna die (gonna die)
(love is like oxygen)
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen
(love is like oxygen)
You get too much you get too high
(you get too much you get too high)
Not enough and you're gonna die (gonna die)
(love is like oxygen)
Love gets you high

Time is no healer
If you're not there
Lonely fever
Sad words in the air

Some things are better left unsaid
I'm gonna spend my days in bed
I'll walk the streets at night
To be hidden by the city lights, city lights

Love is like oxygen
(love is like oxygen)
You get too much you get too high
(you get too much you get too high)
Not enough and you're gonna die (gonna die)
(love is like oxygen)
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen
(love is like oxygen)
You get too much you get too high
(you get too much you get too high)
Not enough and you're gonna die (gonna die)
(love is like oxygen)
Love gets you high

Love is like oxygen
Love is like oxygen
Love is like oxygen
