Album: Aqualung (2002)
Charted: 7
  • I've been watching your world from afar
    I've been trying to be where you are
    And I've been secretly falling apart
    Unseen
    To me, you're strange and you're beautiful
    You'd be so perfect with me
    But you just can't see
    You turn every head but you don't see me

    I'll put a spell on you
    You fall asleep
    When I put a spell on you
    And when I wake you I'll be the first thing you see
    And you'll realize that you love me

    Yeah
    Yeah

    Sometimes the last thing you want comes in first
    Sometimes the first thing you want never comes
    But I know that waiting is all you can do
    Sometimes

    I'll put a spell on you
    You fall asleep
    When I put a spell on you
    And when I wake you I'll be the first thing you see
    And you'll realize that you love me

    I'll put a spell on you
    You fall asleep
    When I put a spell on you
    And when I wake you I'll be the first thing you see
    And you'll realize that you love me

    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah
    Yeah Writer/s: KIM OLIVER, MATTHEW NICHOLAS HALES
