  • Say you don't listen to every word that I say
    Kind of explains it all in some peculiar way
    I know it, and you know it
    There's no distance gonna keep you safe

    It was an evil eye (Watching you)
    Got an evil eye (Look at you)
    It was an evil eye (Watching you)
    Got an evil eye (Cuts right through)

    Teaching you lessons and now I'm meant to behave
    While you change like a season inside a single day
    You want me to, be more like you
    But you're never gonna get your way

    'Cuz there's an evil eye (Watching you)
    There's an evil eye (Look at you)
    There's an evil eye (Watching you)
    There's an evil eye (Cuts right through)

    Judge away
    Cover parts of me you don't deem worthy of your love
    But beware
    There's power beyond measure when I

    There's no danger you'll be left on the shelf
    For you're the poster boy for falling in love yourself
    But one's only gonna get lonely
    Let the light into that crack in your shell

    'Cuz you got an evil eye (Watching you)
    Got an evil eye (Look at you)
    Got an evil eye (Watching you)
    Got an evil eye (Cuts right through)
    Cuts right through you
    Cuts right through you
    Cuts right through you

    Can't you see?
    Until I know you're sorry there's an arrow for your chest
    God help me
    Tell a different story and put my heart at rest

    Well there's an evil eye (Watching you)
    Got an evil eye (Look at you)
    There's an evil eye (Watching you)
    Got an evil eye (Cuts right through) Writer/s: KT TUNSTALL
