Lyrics at end

Melbourne 2011

Baby I’ve been watching you
Watching everything you do
And I just can’t help but feeling
Someone else is stealing you away from me
I see it written in your eyes
You confirm it with your lies
Though the web that you weave can hold me
I would rather that you told me
Where you wanna be

Oooh slipping away from me
Oooh slipping away from me
And it’s breaking me in two
Watching you slipping away

Baby I’ve been watching you
Watching everything you do
And I just can’t help but feeling
Someone else is stealing you away from me
I see it written in your eyes
You confirm it with your lies
Though the web that you weave can hold me
I would rather that you told me
Where you wanna be

Oooh slipping away from me
Oooh slipping away from me
And it’s breaking me in two
Watching you slipping away


And it’s breaking me in two
Watching you slipping away


And it’s breaking me in two
Watching you slipping away

Baby I’ve been watching you
Watching everything you do
And I just can’t help but feeling
Someone else is stealing you away from me
I see it written in your eyes
You confirm it with your lies
Though the web that you weave can hold me
I would rather that you told me
Where you wanna be

Oooh slipping away from me
Oooh slipping away from me
And it’s breaking me in two
Watching you slipping away


And it’s breaking me in two
Watching you slipping away


And it’s breaking me in two
Watching you slipping away


And it’s breaking me in two
Watching you slipping away
