Some songwriters just get it. Here’s an excerpt from the lyrics of a song by Aqualung.
I’ve been watching your world from afar,
I’ve been trying to be where you are,
And I’ve been secretly falling apart,
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’ll fall asleep and I’ll put a spell on you.
And when I wake you,
I’ll be the first thing you see,
And you’ll realise that you love me.
