lyrics

The fire just won’t die
I try to try but I
I feel her in my bones ever deeper

If we never meet again
Or if she needs me as a friend
I won’t forget the peace it was to hold her.

And if her voice went cold
The love’s already shown
There’s nothing left to know except the future

She knows

She’s always on my mind
My heart beats out of time
Until I put my mind and heart together

There’s magic in the street
And magic in the beat
I will not shut my eyes to the wonder

All magic is pure
All that’s pure is real
My love for her is pure and simple magic

And now it’s time to turn
Turn and face the world
Her gentle smile I’m keeping in my pocket

She knows

She knows she knows I love her, but that’s not all she knows
She takes her truths out and wears them for party clothes
I was alright before I met her and then I knew for sure
But now she gone and alright ain’t good enough any more
Only thing she don’t know, girl got magic in her
Rabbits fallin out of hats all over the Goddamn place and cookin up four course dinners
If this is a dream, you can’t wake me, I aim to be around a while
I haven’t felt this whole since I was an uncorrupted child
I’d call her name in my soul if there was no number for to dial
I’d touch every blade of grass, I’d walk the moonlight mile
She’s worth a million priceless things and she’s just as beautiful as she looks
And she just looks so good.

I’d drink the naked rain, I’d jump a thousand moons
I’d burn a thousand candles, I’d climb up Mount Ventoux
“The life that we call blessed is to be sought on a high level
and straight is the way that leads to it.” That’s the only way to beat the Devil.
I was stranded in the alley when she pulled her ladder down
I told her on the fire escape I was gonna pay her back somehow
Now, this is her song, but I know she likes to share
So take it with you. I hope she takes it everywhere
And while she’s taking things, well she could take me too
If I were in her boots, that’s just what I would do
I know she knows she knows. She knows I know it too
She knows I know I know. I know she knows I know it too
