Songtekst

We've been just good friends far too long
And it all seems wrong somehow
Come out and make the move, the coast is clear
The time to try is now.

I've been watching you
I've been watching you, oh.

Seems if we met about a month ago
There'd be no front to crack
But as it is, neither of us know
How to peel the pages back.

Can we do it now ? Will you do it for me ?
Can't hardly speak for you (I feel myself falling)
My winning streak is you (don't you hear me calling ?)
I'm weak for you and all that's missing is your heart
Your heart, your heart, your heart.

Counted all the cards we've both laid out
But there's only fifty-one
Keep the joker, I don't mind
But let me have the fun.

I've been watching you
I've been watching you.

I've reached a peak for you (I feel myself falling)
I'm a freak for you (don't you hear me calling ?)
I'm weak for you and all that's missing is your heart
Your heart, your heart, your heart.

You don't see the forest for the trees
I may be standing tough
But now I'm on, on my knees.

There's a mystique to you (I feel myself falling)
It may sound Greek to you (don't you hear me calling ?)
But I'm weak for you and all that's missing is your love
Your love, your love, your love
Your love, your love, your love.

All I wanted was your love
All I wanted was your love.

Give me your love
Give me your love.

Songinformatie

De componist van "Weat for you", Pete Wingfield, had zelf in 1975 een Top 40 hit met "Eighteen with a bullet". De plaat stond 5 weken in de Top 40 en bereikte - hoe kan het ook anders - de 18e plaats (met stip) als hoogste notering.

De b-kant is volgens de fans van Colin misschien wel het mooiste nummer dat hij ooit heeft opgenomen.

Trivia

In 1964 vormde Colin samen met toetsenist Rod Argent, gitarist Paul Atkinson, bassist Chris White en drummer Hugh Grundy de band The Zombies. De bekendste hits waren "She's Not There", "Tell Her No", "Summertime" en "Time of the Season".
Na het uiteenvallen van de band in 1968 begon Colin aan zijn solocarrière.

Onder het pseudoniem Neil McArthur nam hij nogmaals de Zombies-hit "She's Not There" op, daarna gebruikte hij zijn eigen naam. Begin jaren zeventig had Colin meerdere solo hits. Vanaf 1990 zijn The Zombies weer regelmatig bij elkaar en hebben ze ook cd's met nieuw materiaal opgenomen.
