Magic - Ben Folds Five

from the back of
your big brown eyes
I knew you'd be gone
as soon as you could
and I hoped you would

we could see that
you weren't yourself
and the lines on your face did tell
it's just as well
you'd never be yourself again

saw you last night
dance by the light
of the moon
stars in your eyes
free from the life
that you knew

you're the magic that holds
the sky up from the ground
you're the breath that blows
these cool winds 'round
trading places with
an angel now

saw you last night
dance by the light
of the moon
stars in your eyes
free from the life
that you knew

saw you last night
stars in the sky
smiled in my room
