There are a number of threads here which show you how to do them. (aka blickies aka Blue Clickies), etc. Use a search on them. I'll retrieve those to song and post them here for future reference.

Subject: Lyr Add: SAVE ME A PLACE IN YOUR HEART (Faulkner)
From: George Seto - af221@chebucto.ns.ca
Date: 16 Sep 02 - 07:06 PM

SAVE ME A PLACE IN YOUR HEART
John Faulkner / MCPS

When the skies are grey
And the good times are over,
When fortune has drawn us apart,
When I'm only a memory
On a long summer's evening,
Save me a place in your heart.

When the years have flown by
On the wings of an eagle
That's chasing a lost shooting star,
When time brings you down
To the wide rolling river,
Save me a place in your heart.

When the trees have grown tall
And the long shadows fall,
When the sun's going down
On this cold ancient ground,
When time brings you down
To the wide rolling river,
Save me a place in your heart.

When the storms of the autumn
Their toll has been taken,
And the time has come to depart,
When you are lost
On the waves of the ocean,
Save me a place in your heart.

When time brings you down
To the wide rolling river,
Save me a place in your heart.

Subject: Lyr Add: BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE (Boo Hewerdine)
From: George Seto - af221@chebucto.ns.ca

Bell, Book and Candle
written by Boo Hewerdine
copyright © 1998 Chrysalis Music Ltd
key : A major
time-signature : 4/4
tempo : MM 74
track timing : 4:13
form : V R V R R' V R v' R' V R P

the blue around the morning moon
the colour of your eyes
I remember holding you
fall through summer skies
you're everything that I've become
every word I say
I need a bell, book and candle to keep your ghost away
 
white horses on a troubled sea
your smile will flash through time
up ahead a blackbird's wing
your hair will come to mind
every night I see your face
when I have to pray
I need a bell, book and candle to keep your ghost away
 
keep your ghost away
keep your ghost away
I need a bell, book and candle
to keep your ghost awayjust before the thunder roars
I sense you next to me
and as I move through nature
I know where you will be
so I must keep myself apart
here is where I'll stay
with a bell, book and candle to keep your ghost away

According to my trusty 1981 edition of Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and fable, Bell, book and candle is the popular phrase signifying excommunication by the Roman Catholic Church. After pronouncing sentence the bell was tolled as for one dead; the bible, the book of life, was closed; and the candle, signifying the soul, was extinguished.
 
There seems to be some confusion in the song-writer's mind between this and exorcism, the casting out of evil spirits, but we mustn't let that spoil a haunting song (sorry, couldn't resist the pun there!).

Just to clear up a confusing post on the explaination of a song. The Bell, Book (of Shadows) and Candle are a pagan / Wiccan refference to tools used in ritual to reach other realms of existence. All of them used in some form or other before Catholicism.
