Lennox, Annie - Something So Right Lyrics

You've got the cool water
When the fever runs high
And you've got the look of love right in your eyes
And I was in a crazy motion
'Till you calmed me down

It took a little time
But you calmed me down

Some people never say the words "I love you"
It's not their style to be so bold
Some people never say the words "I love you"
But like a child they're longing to be told

They've got a wall in China
It's a thousand miles long
To keep out the foreigners
They made it strong
And I've got a wall around me
That you can't even see

It took a little time
To get next to me

If something goes worng, I'm the first to admit it
The first to admit it - but the last one to know
If something goes right, well, it's likely to lose me
It's apt to confuse me
Because it's such an unusual sight, oh
I can't get used to something so right
Something so right

Some people never say the words "I love you"
It's not their style to be so bold
Some people never say the words "I love you"
But like a child I'm longing to be told

They've got a wall in China...
And I've got a wall around me...

It took a little time
To get next to me

    https://youtu.be/JfCjBlbkZ8o love you Annie (happy v-day)

  2. Jetzel Martinez

    This is my favorite part in the Medusa album it ends with this beautiful sad mellow song. Always get emotional when i hear it. A very underrated album

  3. Ferdasyn 80

    So beautiful so magical ... I love her!

  4. Jaguarxf33 rh

    Esta canción me recuerda mucho a ti ojitos 😔

  5. Zoltan Kovac


  6. Denise Wolfer

    What a beautiful song, it brought me tears with awe - your voice, and RANGE oh my god!- yes I used long hand. You are beyond amazing Annie on so many levels. Thank you for sharing your talent

  7. Aoi

    I think she is a big fan of theatre. Most of the music vids I have seen have her and other characters in a masquerade/ Theatre environment.

  8. Tara Greene

    a great Paul Simon song

  9. G Pearson

    LOVE this so much

  10. Ademar Díaz

    20 years back, and still rememeber those beautiful green eyes of a beautiful 19 year old brasilian babe lookin' at me in the middle ot the smoky smelly night of an Orlando retreat afterwork... confesssing me her deepest thoughts

  11. Mark Chappell

    Your the Mongols Linda is the Chinese. She's a sweety aye . That is your partner. I can not remember her name.

  12. Mark Chappell

    You stay on that side and I'll stay on this side.

  13. Mark Chappell

    A thousand miles long. Interesting, because when I built it it went to Torke England.

  14. Mark Chappell

    Of course I love you.

  15. Jeanne Benit

    One of the most beautiful remakes of any song I've ever heard.  Her voice is sterling.  Bravo.

  16. Joanne Martínez

    I love everything about this album💗

  17. 副田貴之


  18. Legal Noise

    Something under my skin

  19. Diana Prince

    still looks her geriatric self.

    Jeanne Benit

    You should look so good.

  20. setondriveable

    I dont know the Paul Simon version but i have no kids. This puts how i feel about my nieces and nephews perfectly. I love them. But cant say the words

    Jeanne Benit

    Yes, you can.  If you can't say it out loud, do it in a card.  But say it.  Before it's too late.  "Like a child" they're "longing to be told."

  21. Mike Tabor

    The thing I love about this album is they are all covers that I'm not familiar with the originals...so to me , they are all Annie Lennox songs.

  22. Ann

    Awesome song....incredible control. Did Annie Lennox write it? Beautiful. Thanks for posting.

  23. Jonathan Richardson

    Sorry, not the least bit impressed. Check out the Susan Werner version.

    Jeanne Benit

    Werner's is certainly a legitimate effort, but this is better.  Sorry.

  24. Elie Elis

    Beautiful work. Inspiring

    Streisand's version is MUCH better.

  31. Josiane Ochman

    Love this song, it's perfection.

  32. Olsenlibra

    I remember buying this single on CD back in '96 and thought she was actually letting her hair grow out.

    TJ Noah

    She did. It was up in No More I love you’s and on the Medusa album pic you can see it was longer. Pieces were out in the front.

  33. Daniel Alejandro Sotelo Miranda

    Hermosa Canción 💛 💛

    como me habria gustado ser joven en esos tiempos 😢😢😢

  34. Marc Colten

    I fantasize about making a movie set in the noir 40's with a scene in smoky nightclub. The lounge singer is Lennox singing this song.

  35. r fernandes

    "Some people never say the words I love you, it's not their style to be so bold, some people never say the words I love you, but like a child, they are longing to be told"

  63. Joakim Hagberg


  64. modarXmodar

    In this video Annie looks like Julianna Margulies...

  65. Capdevila Fabian

    where is posible buy the dvd of this music

  66. Joanie C

    I would've preferred this cover if it didn't have that awful synth-bell keyboard sound like off a mid-80s Whitney Houston ballad. I lost interest for a bit around "Medusa", it was very bland and safe.

    Roberto Coin

    Barbara Streisand's version is the best 

  67. Joakim Hagberg

    You are the best Dont  ever stop singing and ,,,... Be you!

  68. Anthony Linden


  69. Maria Alejandra Lopez
