"A Certain Softness" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
A certain softness
In her eyes
Fascinates me
More than I ever thought it would.
(A certain softness)
More than I ever thought it could

A certain softness
In her eyes
Got me hooked
Got me hooked

A kind of sadness
In her smile
Captivates me
Surer than anything that's sure
(A kind of sadness)
Surer than anything before

The kind of sadness in a smile
Got me hooked
Got me hooked
Got me hooked

If I could even find the words to tell you
I wouldn't want to anyway
'Cause that could only break the spell
And you know very well
I couldn't betray her

A touch of wildness
In her style
Haunts my memory
More than I ever thought it would
(A touch of wildness)
More than I ever thought it could

A touch of wildness in her style
Got me hooked
Got me hooked
Got me hooked

(Repeat first verse)

    General CommentI really like the contradiction (at the first sight) he's making with the "A certain sadness in her smile" lyric.

    In my opinion, in this song he's basically describing a mysterious type of woman.
