The motion for the potion is counterclockwise
Stirring backward in time
Back to a day impressions were made
A retry, a redo, a replay.

That was the day that love at first sight
Should have struck if things could be fair
Could be fair for the one caught in the spell
And the potion should turn it all right.

Stir counterclockwise seven times
On the eighth, reverse for one stir
Simmering potion in the brass caldron
A potion to bring love to the heart.

Stir and stir and mutter away
For the moment already flown
Go back, go back to that first meeting
Spark two hearts and not only one.

The love in a potion drains love away
The effort makes the heart cold
Like selling your hair or pawning a watch
The gestures fall back to the ground.

There is no love potion that doesnít kill love
In the heart of the poisoner
If love needs a potion, it canít be love
And the glory fades to a tomb.
