"Haunted" as written by Lester A Mendez and Jewel Kilcher....
I will come to you
In the still of the night
And I will crush you
With the burden of sight
And you will understand
The shadows in my heart
The fury of my conviction
Will cause your heart to quicken
And then, my dear
You will see you want me here

[Chorus]
And when you wake up
You will see yourself through my eyes
And when you break up
You'll understand
Why it is I cry

Let me speak quietly
So your heart can hear
I will hypnotize and mesmerize you
With the sound of your own fear

[Chorus]

I just want to get along
This is your song
I wrote it in my head
But the melody's all wrong
And it's driving me crazy
Not having you, baby
To keep me company
In my own private world
You're my one true girl
And I won't be stoppin' Just 'cause your knees are knockin'
When I decide 2 drop in
So don't make a sound
Cause there's no one around
To come between us now
I'm gonna haunt you, girl

    General CommentThis song gave me the creeps the first time I heard it. It so dark and you get a real sense that someone's watching you. It's weird. But I totally love it. That's the amazing thing about Jewel, she can totally bring you into the song and for a few minutes you see what she sees.

    General CommentI love this song because it has an creepy sense to it and it really goes in to how the stalker is feeling, you almost feel sorry for him.

    General Commentthis song is about JEWEL being in the perspective of a guy who is stalking a girl that he likes, she says it in her lyric boook for her newest CD.

    General CommentYeah, saraXkills has got it. This great little melody was taken from a letter from a stalker, I believe, just as was "Possession" by Sarah McLachlan. A disturbing look into the minds of the most celebrity-obsessed.
