"Bewitched" as written by Sean Anthony Eden, Stanley Demeski, Justin Harwood and Dean Wareham....
All of a sudden
The girl of my dreams
She never asks
She always screams
Do you see her face
In a puddle at my feet
As I bend down
To kiss the street

And I'll come runnin' to her
And I'll come runnin' to her

Her sleep is troubled
Her face will twitch
She wakes up angry
And I'm bewitched
Her smile is forced
She's always late
But she's not sorry
And I capitulate

And I'll come runnin' to her
And I'll come runnin' to her

All of a sudden
The girl of my dreams
She never asks
She always screams

    General CommentI LOVE the 2nd verse: "her sleep is troubled/ her face will twitch/ she wakes up angry/ and I'm bewitched." I've had dreams before in which I was so infuriated that it carried over once I was awake; in one, my dad forced me to do my sister's laundry - I was so mad when I woke up that I kicked my sister, with whom I was sharing a room & bed at the time.

    In any case, I agree with tbaumgar. The line about kissing the street (instead of the girl's face, which is deceptively reflected in the puddle) sort of indicates disappointed expectations of a partner-- that she'll be there, when in fact she's checked out already.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is about being in a co-dependent relationship with a mentally unstable person prone to mood swings.

    "Her sleep is troubled/Her face will twitch/She wakes up angry/And I'm bewitched" and "Her smile is forced/she's always late/But she's not sorry/And I capitulate".

    The woman is bi-polar and the narrator is in way over his head, worshipping someone who is extremely unhappy. It's doomed.

    General CommentI hate to disagree with you two, but I think it’s just about when a partner in a relationship loses interest and takes it out in you. I’m speaking from experience. I didn’t go to Harvard like Dean, but I have had a relationship like that, and I think that’s what he’s talking about here.
