The Uscripted Lyrics

Verse 1
Under Your Spell
La vie en rose
You Play, I /po:z/
The script starts well

Verse 2
Under Your Thumb
I found a roof
I found the proof
That I belonged

Chorus
It was always going to be hard to let go
And I found myself looking up for a nod
It was always going to be hard to let go
But I had to resume this interrupted growth

Verse 4
Under  Your Thumb
I found a roof
I found the proof
That I belonged

Verse 5
On a tight leash
I felt so safe
I guess the chafe
Means I exist

Chorus
It was always going to be hard to let go
And I found myself craving the burn of your hold
It was always going to be hard to let go
But I had to resume this interrupted growth

Bridge (aah)
