"Halfway up the Hindu Kush" as written by Mike Batt and Katie Melua....
The first time that I saw you
I said for goodness sake
That man's got the power
He's a charmer with a snake
I was thrilled and fascinated
But somehow liberated,
When you took me to a place I'd never been.
You showed me lots of things I'd never seen

You set me free
As if you'd taken me,
Halfway up the Hindu Kush
And I love you,
For showing me the view
From halfway up the Hindu Kush

The next time that I saw you, you looked into my eyes
I was sitting on your carpet when I felt it begin to rise.
I kinda got the feeling,
I was floating to the ceiling,
Instead of looking at the sky
You picked me up and showed me how to fly.

You set me free, as if you'd taken me,
Halfway up the Hindu Kush
And I love you
For showing me the view,
From halfway up the Hindu Kush

From halfway up the Hindu,
From halfway up the Hindu,
From halfway up the Hindu Kush.

You set me free, as if you'd taken me,
Halfway up the Hindu Kush
And I love you,
For showing me the view,
From halfway up the Hindu Kush.
Halfway up the Hindu Kush

    General CommentThis is one of the best songs I’ve heard in a very long time…a real throwback...someone makes her feel so good it's like going up a majestic mountaintop...
