"I Can't Take My Eyes Off You" as written by and Doane/fox....
So dear to me
Always keep me company
Who needs to go outside
I will be your silent bride

I can't take my eyes off you

Nothing ever needs to be said
You send your message
right into my head
You fill me up when I'm alone
So soothing is your monotone

I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you

So maybe you're not as real
as the others
But I choose you over all my past lovers
For they have come and they have gone
but I can always turn you on

I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you

    General CommentI first heard this song in an episode of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" and thought it was a beautiful little track. So, thanks to the magic of the internet, I discoved that it was by the very talented Canadian songstress Melanie Doane and I now number her among my favourite artists.

    Btw, Mel wrote this song about her tv set...though that last line in the third verse has me thinking there's a double entendre in there somewhere ;-)

    General CommentWow, I never knew she wrote it about her t.v. That's ironic because the song was played during a very romantic scene between the characters Willow and Tara on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    And the last line: Maybe she added that to surprise people? Cuz you could take it either way..

    General CommentThis song went PERFECTLY with Tara and Willow's relationship. When I saw the episode, I practically MELTED with their words to each other!

    Oh and by the way, I LOVE this song!!! O:-)

    General CommentI can't believe how many times I listened to this song without figuring out it was about tv. It even has little tv voices in the background periodically. I think it was the fact that I first saw it on Buffy that I thought it was a generic love song.

    General CommentWow that is really surprising, that she wrote it about her TV! I wonder if she did it just to have a laugh at all the people who thought it was a beautiful love song?

    General CommentWow, i've been listening to this as a beautiful, (albeit admittedly rather generic) love song - well the TV idea has just ruined it for me. :(

    General CommentI too first heard this in the episode "Family" in BtVS and immediately adored it. After listening to it for a while, I began to think it was about an internet romance but I was constnatly hearing television in the background of the song so the TV bit makes way more sense... I would have liked it better if it were about an internet romance rather than a TV. =P But oh well. I still like the song.
