lyrics

the curtain’s still lowered
its just before dawn
i’m standing here wondering
how i’ve waited so long

by the time the clock strikes six
ill be somewhere far, far away
no matter all the tears you shed
when you ask me to stay

————

i went to the doctor
said i don’t feel so good
my temperature’s high
and i’m misunderstood, and he said

‘son you know i’m not that kind of doc
but i know just what to do
and if you thought for a second
i think you’d know it too’

————

i went to the preacher
said father i’ve sinned
i’ve spent my whole life
living out on the fringe, but he said

‘son you know, well that’s not a sin
but i know just how you feel
i think you should go out
and find something real’

————

so go ahead and wipe that
sad look from your eyes
i’m a magic man, you know
you shouldn’t be so surprised

i’ve had a lot of practice
so really there’s nothing to fear
won’t all of you please sit back
relax, and watch me disappear

————

yesterday i spoke
to the delivery man
i told him i’m running
as far as i can, but he said

‘son i don’t really know you
but i hope you find what you’re looking for
and if you gotta go
you oughta do it with style, you know’

————

so go ahead and wipe that
sad look from your eyes
i’m a magic man, you know
you shouldn’t be so surprised

i’ve had a lot of practice
so really there’s nothing to fear
won’t all of you please sit back
relax, and watch me disappear
