Halfway up The Hindu Kush Lyrics

(Melua/Batt)

The first time that I saw you,
I said "for goodness sake,
That man's got the power,
he's a charmer with a snake".
I was thrilled and fascinated,
but somehow liberated,
When you took me
to a place I'd never been.
You showed me lots of things
I'd never seen.

You set me free,
as if you'd taken me,
Halfway up the Hindu Kush.
And I love you,
for showing me the view,
From halfway up the Hindu Kush
 
The next time that I saw you,
You looked into my eyes,
I was sitting on your carpet
when I felt it begin to rise.
I kinda got the feeling,
I was floating to the ceiling,
Instead of only looking at the sky.
You picked me up
and showed me how to fly.

You set me free, as if you'd token me,
Halfway up the Hindu Kush.
And I love you,
for showing me the view,
From halfway up the Hindu Kush.

From halfway up the Hindu,
From halfway up the Hindu,
From halfway up the Hindu Kush.

You set me free, as if you'd taken me,
Halfway up the Hindu Kush.
And I love you,
for showing me the view,
From halfway up the Hindu Kush.
Halfway up the Hindu Kush.
