Love is Like Oxygen ~ Sweet ~ 1978

~ Love Is Like Oxygen | Sweet ~

British glam rock band Sweet's release of the studio album, Level Headed, released January 1978 featured the single Love is Like Oxygen which peaked at #8 in the United States and #9 in the UK.

Bubblegum pop, fuzzy guitars . . . a pop group disguised as a heavy metal band.

Another one of my favorite songs from Sweet . . . Ballroom Blitz . . . ahhhhhhhhh 70's music brings back awesome memories of youth coming to age in turbulent times.

Love Is Like Oxygen


Time on my side
I got it all
I've heard that pride
Always comes before a fall
There's a rumor 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
You get too much you get too high
Not enough and you're gonna die
Love gets you high

Time is no healer
When 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
