"Mystify" as written by Michael Hutchence and Andrew Farriss....
All veils and misty
Streets of blue
Almond looks
That chill divine
Some silken moment
Goes on forever
And we're leaving broken hearts behind

Mystify
Mystify me
Mystify
Mystify me

I need perfection
Some twisted selection
That tangles me
To keep me alive

In all that exists
None have your beauty
I see your face
I will survive

Mystify
Mystify me
Mystify
Mystify me

Eternally wild with the power
To make every moment come alive
All those stars that shine upon you
Will kiss you every night

All veils and misty
Streets of blue
Almond looks
That chill divine
Some silken moment
Goes on forever
And we're leaving
Yeah we're leaving broken hearts behind

Mystify
Mystify me
Mystify
Mystify me

You're eternally wild with the power
To make every moment come alive
All those stars that shine upon you
Well they'll kiss you every night

Mystify
Mystify me
Mystify
Mystify me

Mystify
Mystify me
Mystify

    My OpinionObviously, to me, just about a man and his lover. And by the way, his lover sounds really awesome... I want to be her ;D

    I don't really get the first verse, but the words are very pretty. I especially like "And we're leaving broken hearts behind."

    The chorus- well, the word "hypnotize" could have been used, but instead "mystify" was and that turned the song meaning on its head!

    "I need perfection, some twisted selection, that tangles me, to keep me alive"- about choosing the right gil. About finding THE ONE. Don't we al dream of that? The "twsited selection" of lookng for her.

    "In all that exist, none have your beauty- I see your face, I will survive." Yay! Hee's found her! As long as she's there, he's going to be fine.

    And then my favorite lyrics-
    "Eternlly wild with the power, to make every moment come alive... all the stars that shne above you, wel they'll kiss you every night." In the course of a few lyrics hes gone from searching for and finding her to exhalting his lover. Words cannot express how much I love these lyrcis! Such a way to compliment someone. That's why I want to be her (not only that, but because if we're being literal here she's dating the hottest man who ever lived...).

    I love the piao on this track. It's a GREAT song to belt out at the top of yur lungs. ;)

    General Comment"Almond looks, that chill divine"

    For me it is a pretty clear. When Michael says Almond looks, I see the eyes of a women I love, and that moment for me is a chill divine, feeling indescribable

    General CommentCome on folks, the meaning couldn't be any clearer, "all the vials...' 'Almond looks' 'I see your face'. The song is basically about Arab girls...

    Mick would systematically pants every women he came into contact with, but Arab girls were an unattainable creature for him because he didn't understand their culture and was intrigued by their understated figures covered all over except the face and almond eyes.

    Seriously, next time you go to Dubai or where ever, play this on the ipod when you go down the street or shopping centre and it all makes sense!
