Tara:
I'm under your spell
God how can this be?
Playing with my memory
You know I've been through hell
Willow don't you see, there'll be nothing left of me
You made me believe

Giles:
Believe me, I don't want to go

Giles and Tara:
And it'll grieve me because I love you so
But we both know

Giles:
Wish I could say the right words to lead you through this land
Tara:
Wish I could trust that it was just this once but I must do what I must
Giles:
Wish I could play the father and take you by the hand
Tara:
I can't adjust to this disgust, we're done
Giles and Tara:
And I just wish I could stay
And I just wish I could stay
And I just wish I could stay
And I just wish I could stay

    General CommentDelicious duet between Tara (Amber Benson *drools*) and Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) that blends both of their voices beautifully. Though Anthony has got the professional singing chops (he used to play Dr Frank N'Furter in The Rocky Horror Show), Amber more than holds her own in this mournfull little tune, creating an air of both mystery and sadness.

    General CommentDon't you just love this part? Especially when Amber stretches out the last word of the Under Your Spell Reprise and when Anthony comes in! It's great!! :D

    General CommentProbably my favorite part of the episode. I love songs in which two singers sing different parts at the same time. ASH and Amber Benson both have extraordinary voices and they surprisingly compliment each other well.
    It breaks my heart when Tara's song of love turns sorrowfully into a song of betrayal. Both her and Giles have no other choice but to hurt themselves by doing what's best for the one they love.
