"Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" as written by and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
Though I've tried before to tell her
Of the feelings I have for her in my heart
Every time that I come near her I just lose my nerve
As I've done from the start

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
It's a big enough umbrella
But it's always me that ends up getting wet.

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

I resolved to call her up a thousand times a day.
And ask her if she'll marry me in some old fashioned way.
But my silent fears have gripped me long before I reach the phone
Long before my time has tripped me must I always be alone

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah
Every little thing, every little thing, every little thing, every little thing
Every little, every little, ever little, every little thing she does
Every little thing she does
Every little thing she does
Every little thing she does

Beo, beo, beo, beo, beo, beo, beo, beo
Beo, beo, beo, beo, beo, beo, beo, beo

Every little thing
Every little thing
Every little thing
She do is
Magic, magic, magic
Magic, magic, magic

Hey oh yo oh
Beo

Ah
Thousand rainy days since we first met
It's a big enough umbrella, but it's always me that ends getting wet

    General CommentMrs D.V., I wonder if a guy has ever felt that way about you. The problem is, it's usually the ONE person we're least attracted to! Always seems to be the way. Have you felt this way about a guy before? It always surprises me that a guy as great looking as Sting has a couple songs where he says he's tongue tied and lonely.

    General CommentNo one has mentioned the absolutley electric EYO-0! EYO-O! EYO-O! my favourite part I'd have to say.
    I do think it someone he already knows. Beside the thousand rainy days thing i think the umbrella talk is impotant. Hell is directly tied into the rainy days... I think its just another example of how infatuated he is. They are friends theyve been together on thses rainy days, the umbrella is big enough but does she share? (NO!) and yet... Every little thing she does is magic!!

    its akin to Shakespere's love sonnet where the object of his love has hair like wire and breath like onions...but he love her in spite of these things. Or maybe because of them too...the whole package "warts and all"

    General Commentit's about a guy who REALLY likes a girl
    and everytime he wants to tell her
    he's too affraid to say it
    but everything she does is just magical to him
    and his fear is of rejection

    same here.
    i don't think this song needs an explanation... it's simply about loving that one girl who could slap you across the face and make it seem like 'magic'.
    cheesy, i know. so catchy though.

    General CommentI think its about the feelings a guy has for a girl from start to end the fears of starting something
    "I just lose my nerve
    As I've done from the start"

    The feelings he has if he loses her:
    "Long before my tongue has tripped me
    Must I always be alone"..at least thats part of what its about, mostly the feeling a guy would go through for someone else.

    General CommentI would have to side most with the first poster. Here we have arguably the most perfect song ever written about becoming absolutely infatuated with a girl. Totally happy, though, it is not. "Every little thing she does is magic" is merely an observation from a far distance, he doesn't totally know her and can't truly connect ("[My silent fears have gripped me"). Ultimately he's left to ask why he "must ... always be alone."

    Every guy has had these feelings before. The thought of her studying, or working, or brushing her just absolutely kills you and then the inevitable happens: either reality sets in or the breakup occurs. Sting hopes to avoid that here, consciously or not. He doesn't want to make the phone call. It's tragic, and it's true. Imagining the wedding is a lot more fun that actually confessing your feelings and getting rejected. Irregardless, it's what one has to do. At some point, we all "end[...] up getting wet."

    General CommentTo me, this song's about a guy who is always rejected, and he can't bring himself to confess his feelings to the girl he likes. Great song to listen to if you're in that boat!
