  • The first time your name was used
    It was beauty and I knew
    Sat in a violet room with some people I saw through
    Gathered 'round the television's fire
    Watching for the people I admired
    Outside my world, we're frozen in the mouth
    I couldn't let them out

    When I see my willing heart
    How will I know?
    How will I walk slow?
    How will I know?
    How will I walk slow?

    It's a strange spell that we lust for
    Every now and then, every now and then

    When I see my willing heart
    How will I know?
    How will I walk slow?

    It's a strange spell that we watch for
    And one I swear I never saw
    Every now and then, every now and then
    Every now and then
    You're still on my screen
    Every now and then
    You're still on my screen
    Every now and then
    There's a glare from the sun and the servent
    Every now and then

    When I see my willing heart
    How will I know?
    How will I walk slow?
    How will I know?
    How will I walk slow?

    It's a strange spell that we watch for
    Every now and then
    You're still on my screen
    Every now and then
    They must have heard my scream
    Every now and then
    There's a glare from the sun and the servent
    Every now and then

    When I see my willing heart
    How will I know?
    How will I walk slow? Writer/s: Christopher Breaux, James Litherland
