Blending modern pop elements with Tom’s singer-songwriter focus, this is the case of a track that achieves that modern perfect pop-infused harmony that captivates listeners all around.

Throughout the song, Tom masterfully creates breathing spaces, where the piano takes the spotlight, beautifully complementing the overall arrangement.

You got me high
Like the morning sun
Like a catapult ride
Like a starting gun
With one eye shut
And the other on you, on you
When the clock strikes ten
I was upside down
You message your friends
Saying don't come round
With one eye closed
And the other on me
On me, on me
Is this real? Or a trick of the light?
Oh the way you're making me feel, tonight
You got me high
Like the midnight sky
Let the chemicals rush
Let the fever rise
Guess you cast your spell
Right in front of my eyes
My eyes, my eyes
Is this real? Or a trick of the light?
Oh the way you're making me feel, tonight
Is this real? Or a trick of the light?
Oh the way you're making me feel
Is this real? Or a trick of the light?
Oh the way you're making me feel, tonight
