5 Seconds of Summer

5 Seconds of Summer (commonly abbreviated as 5SOS) are an Australian pop punk band from Sydney that formed in 2011. The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012. They rose to international fame while touring with One Direction on the Take Me Home Tour. The group have been referred to as a boy band in the media, though the members reject this description. In early 2014, the band released "She Looks So Perfect" worldwide as its debut single, which topped the charts in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the United Kingdom. The self-titled debut studio album was released in June 2014, which peaked #1 in 11 countries, and followed by a live album titled LiveSOS. The ban… more »

It started on a weekend in May
I was looking for attention, needed intervention
Felt somebody looking at me
With a powder white complexion, feeling the connection

The way she looked was so ridiculous
Every single step had me waiting for the next
Before I knew it, it was serious
Dragged me out the bar to the back seat of her car

When the lights go out, she's all I ever think about
The picture burning in my brain, kissing in the rain
I can't forget, my English love affair
Today, I'm seven thousand miles away
The movie playing in my head of a king size bed means I can't forget
My English love affair 
My English love affair

Next thing we were back at her place
A hideaway in Mayfair, all the great and good there
Drinking all the way to third base
Princes getting naked, falling on their faces

The story line was so ridiculous
Every single step had me begging for the next
Before I knew it, it was serious
Dragged me up the stairs and it wasn't ending there

When the lights go out, she's all I ever think about
The picture burning in my brain, kissing in the rain
I can't forget, my English love affair
Today, I'm seven thousand miles away
The movie playing in my head of a king size bed means I can't forget
My English love affair

When I got out I knew that nobody I knew would believe in me
I look back now and know that nobody could ever take the memory

When the lights go out (lights go out), she's all I ever think about (think about)
The picture burning in my brain, kissing in the rain
I can't forget, my English love affair
Today, I'm seven thousand miles away
The movie playing in my head of a king size bed means I can't forget
My English love affair
My English love affair
My English love affair
