You cast your spell over me
Don't know where to turn to anymore
I see your face
Every morning when I wake up
Every night when I go to bed

You're here with me
Somehow, don't know how
I can feel you right now
So close, so real

Do, do-do, do-do
Show me your colours

Show me
Show me your colours
Show me
Don't break this spell I'm in
Please don't break my heart
Show me
Show me your colours, baby
Tell me who you really are

I know you want what I want
Far away, but still within our reach
Do you dare?
Are you brave enough to show me
What your heart really wants to

I say your name to myself out loud
Wanna have you all around
Like a cover for the cold on the outside
Making love in the candlelight

Do, do-do, do-do

Show me
Show me your colours
Show me
Don't break this spell I'm in
Please don't break my heart
Show me
Show me your colours, baby
Tell me who you really are

Baby
Don't tell me I mean nothing
After all you did
Baby, don't you tell me
Tell me I mean nothing
Tell me I mean nothing to you
Please show me now

Show me
Show me your colours
Show me
Don't break this spell I'm in
Please don't break my heart
Show me
Show me your colours, baby
Tell me who you really are

Show me
Show me your colours
Show me
Don't break this spell I'm in
Please don't break my heart
Show me
Show me your colours, baby
Tell me who you really are

I'm not allowed to adore you
The way you know I really want
But I do
Even though it's been a nightmare
To pretend that it's all, alright
It's not the easiest thing to avoid
Damage is already done
I'm in love
With you

    General CommentI like this song, I would still be listening to it if I hadn't scratched up the cd so bad. I mean I was playing it one day and all of a sudden it stopped and the cd had a crack in it. I use to lay this song on my cd player to death. I'm a Leo, so it just comes naturaly for me to like songs like this I guess. I mean, I never liked showing feelings, but I listen to a lot of love songs.
    You cast your spell over me
    Don't know where to turn to anymore
    I see your face
    Every morning when I wake up
    Every night when I go to bed
    You're here with me somehow
    Don't know how I can feel you right now
    So close
    So real

    That's my favorite part.

    General Commentwow. i am shocked that there are so few posts about this song. i think this song speaks true to a lot of people. i'm kind of in a situation right now where i feel like i shouldn't like this person, but i still do. there's a huge age difference between us and it's kind of like a forbidden love thing. i'm not sure if he feels the same, but i think i relate to the last verse the most, where it says:

    "i'm not allowed to adore you
    the way you know i really want, but i do
    even though it's been a nightmare
    to pretend that it's all alright
    it's not the easiest thing to avoid,
    damage is already done;
    i'm in love...with...you"

    so simply put, but so well said. that's EXACTLY how i feel about the guy i'm involved with.

    long live S Club!!!!

    My InterpretationI love this song. I think it describes perfectly what I am going through right now. You fall in love with people, but they have difficulties to open up to you, and the more they are hiding from themselves (keeping secrets, lying, etc), the distance between you and those people increases. Little by little, you are losing them. Problem is, you've already fallen for them, and you just want them to open up to you but they won't and choose to leave you instead. It is difficult to accept the fact they broke your heart by avoiding the situation and pretend you never existed "Don't tell me I mean nothing". It's like falling in love with a stranger. You are trying to forget, but it is hard.
