Spellbound

Lyrics

Those eyes they transmit
all your loving
echos light into dark hearts
i would swear I’ve seen this, left beside me
your eyes they hypnotize

she keeps me here so spellbound
her love pulls me near to stranger ground
I’ve lost my mind there
this dark magic mirror, spellbound

a heart-shaped face
with words as cold as stone
i can’t believe this is my fate

she raised your head
now the night, it’s coming down
i accept this fate i accept my love you won’t be long
you keep me here so spellbound
your love pulls me near to sacred ground
i lost my mind there
this dark magic mirror, spellbound
and i can’t leave now
leave her now (x2)

she keeps me near so spellbound
her love pulls me near to stranger ground
i lost my mind there
this dark magic mirror, spellbound (x2)
so spellbound (x3)

One Response to Spellbound

  • I say capo on 6th fret, which to me matches the recording acoustic track a little better, plus it’s a little easier to mix in that gorgeous descending melody.
    So with that in mind (in relation to 6th fret capo [and guitar tuned half step down to Eb]):
    (x4665x) (x4660x) (x4760x) (x4660x) is the descending progression on the first chord. Relatively speaking it’s a C#min shape.
    Then:
    (x3201x) (x3200x) (x3220x) (x3200) is the second chord. Relatively it is a C shape.
    Then:
    (x0221x) (x0220x) (x0221x) (x0201x) is the third chord. Relatively an Amin shape.
    Then landing on the last chord: (022100) with an E shape.
    I find the capo on the 6th fret makes for a nice walk up from (022000 [Emin shape]) to the 8 fret root then onto the (980099 [G shape]) for the “keeps me here” part.
    Then a very dramatic (200230 [D shape, although D with the thumb {200323} works too, but sounds a little too Zeppelin for my tastes, and the sus sound leads better into the next chord]) into (x0222x [A shape]).
    Then onto the beautiful descending melody as previously shown, and the actual verse can be played more straight forward without the descending melody chords shown.
    I hope you like it. An F chord is always an alarm to me when hearing a fat strummed sound, as standard tuning uncapoed F chords don’t sound as fat and ringy, because guitarists always have trouble making that barre chord sound like that, and I can hear the higher range on the recording.
