...wish I could say...

...the right words...

... and take you by the hand...

...I'm standing in the way...

...wish I could slay your demons...

I'm just standing in the way

I'm under your spell...

...I love you so...

...wish I could...

...stay

As Buffy prepares to train, Giles is concerned that her reliance on him is holding her back.
BUFFY What would I do without you?.... OK, I'm ready.
GILES

You're not ready
For the world outside
You keep pretending
But you just can't hide
I know I said that I'd be
Standing by your side
But I...

Your path's unbeaten
And it's all uphill
And you can meet it
But you never will
And I'm the reason
That you're standing still
But I...

I wish I could say the right words
To lead you through this land
Wish I could play the father
And take you by the hand
Wish I could stay
But now I understand...
I'm standing in the way

The cries around you
You don't hear at all
'Cause you know I'm here
To take that call
So you just lie there
When you should be standing tall
But I...

I wish I could lay your arms down
And let you rest at last
Wish I could slay your demons
But now that time has passed
Wish I could stay
Your stalwart standing fast
But I'm standing in the way
I'm just standing in the way

BUFFY

Did you just say something?

 

Under Your SpellStanding Reprise
Upstairs, Tara has found a book which explains how Willow has put a spell on her; a spell to forget a previous fight between them.
TARA
I'm under your spell
God, how can this be?
Playing with my memory
You know I've been
through hell
Willow, don't you see?
There'll be nothing left of me
You made me
believe

And it'll grieve me
'Cause I love you so
But we both know...


Wish I could trust
that it was just this once
But I must do
what I must
I can't adjust to this disgust
We're done and I just
Wish I could stay
Wish I could stay
Wish I could stay
Wish I could stay







GILES
Believe me
I don't want to go
And it'll grieve me
'Cause I love you so
But we both know...

Wish I could say
the right words
To lead you through
this land
Wish I could play
the father
And take you by the hand
Wish I could stay
Wish I could stay
Wish I could stay
Wish I could stay
