Poetry Friday: Spell by Marié Digby

Spotlight shining brightly on my face
I can't see a thing, and yet I feel you, walking my way

An empty stage
With nothing but this girl
Who's singing this simple melody
And wearing her heart on her sleeve
And right now

I have you
For a moment I can tell I've got you
'Cause your lips don't move
And something is happening
'Cause your eyes tell me the truth
I've put a spell over you

Beauty emanates from every word that you say
And capture the deepest thoughts
In the purest and simplest of ways

But you see
I'm not that graceful like you
Nor am I as eloquent
But just a simple melody
Can change the way that you see me
And right now

I have you
For a moment I can tell I've got you
'Cause your lips don't move
And something is happening
'Cause your eyes tell me the truth
I've put a spell over you

All my life I stumble
But up here I am just perfect
Perfect as I'll ever be

I have you
For a moment I can tell I've got you
'Cause your lips don't move
And something is happening
'Cause your eyes tell me the truth
I've put a spell over you

- lyrics to Spell by Marié Digby
