Silver Spell

Image Source: The Magpie Tales

You look so calm and serene
Under this silver moonlight
I can feel your eyes on me
As I shiver in the cold night

I know you want to come up to me
Trying to make some conversation
Waiting for a train has never felt this good
As we are the last two souls in this station

As my eyes finally meet yours
You have a lot to say I could tell
I sit back and soak in this moment
The moon seems to have cast a spell

Adding to this hesitating moment
I can hear a slow song somewhere
I trace dance steps with my toe
Wondering if a dance we can share

Your eyes remain fixed on me
I play with my hair and give you a smile
You smile back and heave a sigh
This game was happening for quite a while

Can't you see that I need you
Why are you not approaching me
What are your stares supposed to mean
What is that you want me to see

Tonight was meant to happen
Don't think much, just give in
Come on stranger, come closer
Let us sing, dance and spin

My feet soon finds its rhythm
As the radio plays another song
I get lost in the mild symphony
Dance always makes me feel strong

I can see you slowly approach
Oh dear, come let us get lost in this tune
Who knows what this might lead to
We might be spinning on our love dune

Come on, hold my hand and dance with me
For now, in this feeling let us dwell
Let us together make hypnotic music
Under this intoxicating silver spell
