Captured

oh I just heard a melody
and it almost made me cry
my voice was filled with yearning, yeah-hmm

but that’s not all – there’s something else
no, that’s not all – there’s something else

every word was in my ear
every note was crystal clear
oh how you captured my heart
oh how you captured my heart

you spoke to me with another tongue
but I understood alright
’cos I believe in feeling, hee-ee

but that’s not all – there’s something else {oh-oh}
no, that’s not all – there’s something else

every word was in my ear
every sound would just appear
oh how you captured my heart
oh how you captured my heart, ooh-ooo

– pipes solo
hah-hah

but that’s not all – there’s something else {oh-oh}
no, that’s not all – there’s something else

every word was in my ear
every note was crystal clear
oh how you captured my heart
oh how you captured my heart
{hoo-ee}
oh how you captured my heart
oh how you captured my heart
oh how you captured my heart, ooh-ooo

every word
every note
every sound
every word
every note
every sound
every word
