"Enchantment" as written by Corinne Bailey Rae and Rod Bowkett....
I wait for you
I don't know why
All I know is I can't hide
At this temperature you could take over my mind

Like gossamer, you softly touch
He draws me in, I'm powerless
He possesses an enchantment

Tell me I'm forgiven
He calls; don't know how I fell under his spell
Lately, I've been driven
He smiles an enchantment

I wait for you
I'm mesmerized
This love is like a potion in disguise
I'd tightrope walk with a blindfold on my eyes

I can't escape, or so it seems
I'd run away; he's in my dreams
He possesses an enchantment

Tell me I'm forgiven
He calls; don't know how I fell under his spell
Lately, I've been driven
He smiles an enchantment

It's the kind of sleepwalk that never ends
A type of loan with no dividends
It's a parlor game where you're giving chase
Guess it could be called an acquired taste
I know, he knows, he calls, I go, I know
This could be an enchantment

Why don't you tell me I'm forgiven?
He calls; don't know how I fell under his spell
I'm forgiven
Lately, I've been driven
(He smiles) and I give in
An enchantment

    General Commentthis song is about being completely consumed with desire for someone. She feels guilt with the indulgence of her desire for him, yet she excuses her self in the end because she is helpless and can do nothing else but be obedient to her love and her addiction for this person.

    General CommentIt's basically a guy knowing you're whipped on him & then as usual they fuck you over because they take it to their advantage. Except that part is not in the song.

    General CommentYes, this song is so clearly about that person under whose spell you have fallen; you are floating around in a trance. You are gone, gone, gone. There is nothing that you won't do for him. You are addicted. My advice? RUN!! :)
