Black Magic Woman

This song was created for Game of Bands round 143 : "Magic"

Lyrics:

I met a woman down in New Orleans
She showed things I thought were make believe
She had black hair, black nails, a black dress and black soul
But she put a white hot spell on me

I met her one night in her black magic shop
I quickly learned this was no tourist stop
Among the candles and the charms I saw her looking at me
And when my eyes met hers I could not break free

She showed me things I thought could not exist
An alternate world from when we first kissed
The dead were walking the shadows were talking
Black magic woman she set me free

She spoke a name I had not heard before
But when she said it I could choose no more
She made me walk with her to the graveyard
She said a chant and then she gave me a drink

The physical world, it started to mist
I saw an alternate world from when we first kissed
The dead were dancing the shadows were glancing
Black magic woman she set me free

She showed me things I thought could not exist
An alternate world from when we first kissed
The dead were jumping my head was thumping
Black magic woman she set me free

Goblins and ghouls and zombies and spirits
Circled us as we danced in the moonlight
She kissed me and my soul left my body
The further I rose, the louder she laughed
I almost succumbed and gave in to her magic
But somehow I realized that this was not right
I snapped to my senses and sought out my body
She shrieked as she saw me, and all the ghouls chased me
But I moved to fast and I made it back
As soon as I did, this world disappeared
I heard the ghouls yell as they reached out to grab me
I twisted around, to get away
I spun around and looked at the sorceress
She pulled out a doll that looked just like me
The last thing I saw was the scowl on her face

I woke up thinking it was all a dream
And it was time to leave new Orleans
But when I got back home and I laid down to bed
I found myself back in the world of the dead

She showed me things I thought could not exist
An alternate world from when we first kissed
The dead were reaching the shadows were leeching
Black magic woman won't you set me free
[Exit]
