"Tell Her Tonight" as written by Nicholas John Mccarthy, Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
I only watched her walk, but she saw it
I only heard her talk, but she saw it
I only touched her lips but she saw it
I only kissed her lips, but she saw it
Gonna have to tell her tonight [Repeat: x4]
She only flicked her eyes, but I saw it
She only swung her hair, but I saw it
She only shook her hips, but I saw it
She only licked her lips, but I saw it
Gonna have to tell her tonight [Repeat: x4]

Hey, I'll have to tell her, you tell her tonight, yeah
I'll have to tell her, tell her tonight, yeah
I'll have to tell her, to tell her tonight, yeah
I'll have to tell her, to tell her tonight

I only held her hand, but she saw it
I only watched her walk, but she saw it
I only touched her neck but she saw it
I only kissed her lips, but she saw it
Gonna have to tell her tonight [Repeat: x4]

Hey, I'll have to tell her, you tell her tonight, yeah
Hey, I'll have to tell her, you tell her tonight, yeah
You have to tell her, you tell her tonight, oh yeah!

    General CommentI can't decide if this song is about two people flirting back and forth, or a couple who are cheating on each other.

    General CommentI like this song despite itself. Those crazy shouted bridges should really be getting my grits, but for some reason, I don't mind them.

    General CommentI think this song is about cheating. The girl is doing somewhat subtle things, but he can't stop watching her and he notices every little thing she does.

    General CommentI'm thinking along the lines of, when you fancy someone, how you can overanalyse movements into meaning what you want them to mean. "She only swung her hair, but I saw it". Girls playing with hair is known as a flirting signal but, then again, girls also just play with their hair.
