Lyrics

Midnight

Written By: Laura Hickli

Be the one I can call at 3 AM
when I have wandered down a street
and lost my way.

I drank so much, I can hardly stand up,
yet, I am leaning on one foot
so I can move on.

Everywhere I go
I've learned to wear a smile
so I don't feel numb.

Everyone I've loved
I've let them walk away into
the burning sun.

In this hour I will think about it all
as the shadow of the night
creeps through my window.

It's enough, it is too much for tonight.
Well, my mind is spinning circles into squares.

Chorus

Play Your Magic

Written By: Laura Hickli

This is my soul,
and I hope that you don't know.
It's pretty dark down here,
and so very, very alone.

I figured if I found the courage to play you this song,
then maybe you could find the time to sing along.

Eight billion people
in the world that I call my home,
but only a few would
would I even bother to phone.

If I fall asleep when you're playing your magic
oh, do you think that it's tragic that I
can't help myself from thinking about you
everything we do.

I know you can't help it,
you are young but you are a star.
You're there for a second,
and the next I see you a far.

Oh, if I fall asleep when you're playing your magic,
do you think that it's tragic that I
can't help myself from thinking about you,
everything we do.
