The Magic

Show me the magic,
Give me reasons to believe
In the illusions.
Tip the hat and wave the wand;
Maybe make me disappear.

Show me the magic,
And say "Abracadabra!"
I'll pretend it's real.
Please don't tell me your secrets;
I really don't want to know.

Show me the magic
Let glitter float in the air.
Take me far away
From this ordinary life,
And into an endless dream.
