I enjoyed this song! It's a very different sound from The Corrs and Sharon's music from earlier albums. There are some unexpected melodies, and I like the contrast of the floaty vocals over the driving bass and drums. (Sounds like there's some violin picking in there too). It's feels like someone running - their legs are working fast while the wind blows through their hair.

This is what I could make of the lyrics, but some words are still a mystery.

RUNNING ON ROOFTOPS

Running on rooftops
Pretending like I don’t have a care in the world
Skimming the beer froth
And sucking it down, licking my lips like tomorrow won’t come

Knowing full well
That when it does, boy, will it come
Like a hammer to my head
Til “never again”, “when will it end”, will I ever learn?

Try to remember what I forget
???? strike the earth
The plates still shifting in my head
Get me a gurney, where’s my meds?
I’m running on rooftops

I’m the last pretender
My head in the clouds
??? on ecstasy
Walking on eggshells, no I won’t, I won’t, do it again
Riding your coatails, hoping you’ll find a kind word, that you’ll be my friend
I’m raising from the dead
So happy again, smile and a wink, here comes the weekend

Try to remember what I forget
???? strike the earth
The plates still shifting in my head, oh
Get me a gurney, where’s my meds?
I’m running on rooftops

Try to remember what I forget
???? strike the earth
The plates are shifting in my head
Get me a gurney, where’s my meds?
I’m running on rooftops
Still running on rooftops
