Under Your Spell

Something about you that I can't shake,

Don't know how much of this I can take,

Baby I'm under your spell.

.

I was knocked out and loaded in the naked night.

When my last dream exploded, I noticed your light.

Baby, oh what a story I could tell.

.

It's been nice seeing you, you read me like a book

If you ever want to reach me, you know where to look.

Baby, I'll be at the same hotel.

.

I'd like to help you but I'm in a bit of a jam,

I'll call you tomorrow if there's phones where I am.

Baby, caught between heaven and hell.

.

But I will be back, I will survive,

You'll never get rid of me as long as you're alive.

Baby, can't you tell.

.

Well it's four in the morning by the sound of the birds,

I'm starin' at your picture, I'm hearin' your words.

Baby, they ring in my head like a bell.

.

Everywhere you go it's enough to break hearts

Someone always gets hurt, a fire always starts.

You were too hot to handle, you were breaking every vow.

I trusted you, baby, you can trust me now.

.

Turn back, baby, wipe your eye,

Don't think I'm leaving you here without a kiss goodbye.

Baby, is there anything left to tell?

.

I'll see you later when I'm not so out of my head,

Maybe next time I'll let the dead bury the dead.

Baby, what more can I tell?

.

Well the desert is hot, the mountain is cursed,

Pray that I don't die of thirst,

Baby, two feet from the well.

.
