Westlife, "Obvious"

수록앨범 : Turnaround (2003)

 

데뷔 싱글부터 7곡이 줄줄이 사탕처럼 UK차트 1위를 기록하며 기네스북에까지 올랐던 웨스트라이프.
하지만 베스트 앨범 낸 후로 약발이 다 된 건지;;; 이 앨범에선 Mandy로 Record of the Year를 수상,
그 상을 3회 수상한 최초의 아티스트가 되었지만 1주일 듣고 질려서 버리는 노래로 어떻게 상을 탔는지 도무지 이해할 수 없음.
이제는 브라이언도 나가 버리고 비실비실 하다 흐지부지 해체 수순을 밟을 것 같다.
그나마 이 곡이 웨스트라이프스러운 마지막 히트곡이 되지 않을까 하는 생각을...

Obvious

 

We started as friends
But something happened inside me
Now I'm reading into everything
But there's no sign you really like me, baby

You don't ever notice when I'm turning on my charm
Or wonder why I'm always where you are

  Chorus
I've made it obvious
Done everything but sing it
I've crushed on you so long
But on and on you get me wrong
I'm not so good with words
And since you never notice
The way that we belong
I'll say it in a love song

I've heard you talk about
How you want someone just like me
Every time I ask you out
We never move pass friendly, no no

You don't ever notice how I stare when we're alone
Or wonder why I keep you on the phone

  Chorus

You are my very first thought in the morning
And my last at nightfall
You are the love that came without warning
I need you, I want you to know

I've made it obvious
So finally I'll sing it
I've crushed on you so long
I'm not so good with words
Since you never notice
The way that we belong
I'll say it in a love song

The love song, I sing it until the day you're holding me
I've wanted you so long but on and on you get me wrong
I more than adore you but since you never seem to see
Since you never seem to see
I'll say it in this love song
