Lyrics

Half Way Up The Hindu Kush

September 2005

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 thrille 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 looking at the sky
you picked me up and showed me how to fly

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

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

Instrumental

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
