"Under The Influence" as written by James Morrison, Steve Mcewan and Jimmy Hogarth....
I was sure,
I was born and raised to be my own man
I was so sure,
I was never gonna need a helping hand
And she said
"Trust in the heart and there's no need to understand"
Well, just when I thought I had it planned out

Whatever I do, I'm under the influence of you
Whatever I do, I'm under the influence of you

Why I was driving
I took us to the edge and living dangerously
I felt strange, a warm sensation rising up inside of me
Oh, like a tidal wave, came from nowhere
Swept me off my feet
But somehow I'm making me complete now

Whatever I do, I'm under the influence of you
Whatever I do, I'm under the influence of you
Whatever I do, I'm under the influence of you
Whatever I do, I'm under the influence of you

Once you've had a taste of it, there's no going back
Once you've had a taste of it, there's no going back
Once you've had a taste of it, there's no going back
Once you've had a taste of it, there's no going back

Whatever I do, I'm under the influence of you
(I'm under the influence of you)
Whatever I do, I'm under the influence of you
Whatever I do, I'm under the influence of you
(There's nothing I can do, yeah)
Whatever I do, I'm under the influence of you

There's nothing I can do
You got me, you got me in

    General CommentTo me, and I'm sure it's obvious. But you have this guy who thinks he can do it all, but there's this girl who shows him that it's ok to "trust in the heart." So when this guy is around this girl, he's vulnerable and he's pretty much, "under the influence." Because of this girl, he's lives life fully and dangerously.

    General CommentI realise the James is all about the romance, but what i love so much about all his songs is that they can applied to other things than just a 'romantic' relationship.
