Alisha's Attic

Alisha's Attic were an English duo of the 1990s and early 2000s. The two members were sisters Shelly McErlaine (née Poole) and Karen Poole, born in Barking and Chadwell Heath respectively. Their father is Brian Poole of 1960s group Brian Poole and the Tremeloes. The "Alisha" referred to in the group's name is a fictional character created by Shelly and Karen, based on an imaginary childhood friend of Shelly's. "Attic" is a reference to the attic studio belonging to a composer friend, Terry Martin, where they originally recorded demos. more »

The galaxy is open
So paint me on your right hand
And let's fly off superman-style
It'll be so good
I'll never look back

With every bit of breath i take
My thoughts say i want you
And there's nothing i can do
To control these natural instincts
If you're ready we can take it
To the heights

And the air we breathe will take us
The air we breathe
And no the loneliness won't break us
'Cause all we need is the air we breathe
The air we breathe

Apollo's turned and twisted
(oh my god!)
As you take me in your arms tonight
O, it feels so quiet in turbulent times

So i think i'll build a stairway
And like a roman in your heart
I will climb and we can start
To journey on past all these satin sheets
And lift it past all of our control


Look up to the sky and ask yourself why
Coz this enchanted evening wouldn't get you any higher
Will the colours fade on all the crimson hearts we made?
And broken them before so it's time to take a flight

[Chorus until fade]
