Love Is Magic Lyrics:

Have you got depression? Passive aggression?

Did they stop loving you

And you’re the only one who doesn’t know?

You forgot your medication

And Sade is playing on the radio


They say you were always enough

It’s too ridiculous to call their bluff

And you’re staring at a dresser drawer

which is devoid of clean underwear

You’re tryin’ to work out on your calculator

If you can swing that trip to anywhere but here




Love is Magic

Whether you Like it or Not

It isn’t so tragic

It’s just a lie that you bought

When the door opens up for you

Don’t resist, just walk on through

There is nothing left to lose


Do you think you can take the pain

Is it destroying the inside of your brain

And you’ve come so very far to hear

That you’re nowhere near half-way there

There’s no milk in the refrigerator

And you’ll be hearing all about it when you

Get home tonight


And this thing called intimacy

Is it what you always thought it would be

Do you feel like you’ve experienced

What the word is supposed to mean?

Do you feel like you are in control?

Did you find out that there’s really

No such thing?
