"Bell, Book and Candle" as written by and Mark Hewerdine....
The blue around the morning moon
The color of your eyes
I remember holding you
A fall through summer skies
You're everything that I've become
In every word I say
I need a bell, book and candle
To keep your ghost away

White horses on a troubled sea
Your smile will flash through time
Up ahead a blackbirds wing
Your hair will come to mind
Every time I see your face
When I have to pray
I need a bell, book and candle
To keep your ghost away

Keep your ghost away
Keep your ghost away
I need a bell, book and candle
To keep your ghost away

Just before the thunder roars
I sense you next to me
And as I move through nature
I know where you must be
So must keep myself apart
Here is where I'll stay
With a bell, book and candle
To keep your ghost away

Keep your ghost away
Keep your ghost away
I need a bell, book and candle
To keep your ghost away

The blue around the morning moon
The color of your eyes
I remember holding you
A fall through summer skies
You're everything that I've become
In every word I say
I need a bell, book and candle
To keep your ghost away

    General CommentI absolutely LOVE this song! In my opinion it's about the death of a loved one. Someone close to her has passed away and every aspect of daily life reminds her of them, as the moon reminds her of the deceased's eyes, the blackbird reminds her of their hair etc. She was so close to that person and now feels like she is becoming them, as she is so consumed by their death. She can't move on and feels their presence around her, needing a bell, book and candle (maybe some form of prayer or ritual?) to forget about them.

    My InterpretationMakes me think of the loss of a loved one and how it's hard to let go and move on because everything reminds you of them.
