(Verse 1)
Please darling come out of your spell
Cause I miss you, I miss you
I know this air is cold and bare
But I'll hold you, I'll hold you

(Bridge)
I know the summer nights they died so long ago
I felt the fall between our lives when I let you go
And if there's a will there is a chance
Here's to reaching for your hand

(Chorus)
Pour your eyes into mine
And tell me you can't say good bye
These closing statements I will pry them open
Bring dire chances back to life back to life
Back to life

(Verse 2)
Oh I know well I know your loss for words
And it's alright, it's alright
Before it gets better it gets worse
And I'll fight, with you all night

(Bridge)
They say that summer nights they died just let it go
And there's a fall between our lives starting to show
And if Cinderella left the dance
Before midnight came and went
The world would never know so
Know so

(Chorus)
Pour your eyes into mine
And tell me you can't say good bye
These closing statements I will pry them open
Bring dire chances back to life
Back to life

(Bridge)
Cinderella, it's not midnight
Cinderella, it's not midnight
Cinderella, it's not midnight
Cinderella, it's not midnight
Cinderella, it's not midnight
It's not midnight

I miss you
I miss you
Come out of your spell
Come out of your...

    I think the meaning of this song is that there's a girl he loves, but she left him. He wants her back. He wants her to look into his eyes and remember what they once had. For her to see that he wants it back. There's a much deeper meaning than that, though. Think you can figure it out? -j. Kells.

    He hasnt moved on from their break up... He's begging her to change her mind and get out of her spell... That it should not be the end of them... That their end happened too soon... (i want to sing this to my ex bf, but i dont know how to make it for a guy... Lol)

    When the couple relationship does not work out, he doesn't want it to end and she probably doesn't either. He reminices on the past and the times they spent together and knows that if they put their heart into it, everything will work out in the end.

    He's just talking about how people change. His reference to a spell resembles how the person changed fast and is now someone vaguely familiar. As if they've been put under a spell. He's reminiscing to old memories they have together thus, "summer nights they died so long ago" and how he wishes and still hopes there's a chance of getting them back. Thus the "here's to reaching for your hand". It's a sad love story about how what once was so beautiful and pure is now distraught and unrecognizable.
