Lyrics

Black Magic

Written By: Michael Ashley / Shadows Of Light

Black Magic

I can't think of anything...

(Verse)
Sleepin' in it
Even breathing
Livin' in it
I can't think of anything (x4)

(Chorus)
Anything
Else is appealing
Everything
Shows me a vision
Everyone
Their every omission
Anyone
Can make their decision

(Verse)
I can't think of anything
Black magic runnin' through my veins
I can't think of anything else!
(black magic)

Sleepin' in it
Even breathing
Livin' in it
I can't think of anything

(Chorus)

(solo)
Don't fake it now
Don't forsake him now (x2)

(Chorus x2)

(verse)
Black magic runnin' through my veins
I can't think of anything else
Sleepin' in it
Even breathin'
Livin' in it!

Just Not Enough

Written By: Shadows Of Light / Michael Ashley

Just Not Enough

Just not enough... (x3)

(verse)
So far it's me now
I'm out of your control
Too far I let it go this time
I waited, well...
You know

July was sad
Full of lies
So we set deadlines
For our lives
But what has changed?
We're too far out of range

(chorus)
You can't make me - go on in vain
Won't go on in vain
Can't imagine life - won't be the same
Won't go on in vain yet

Just not enough... (x3)

(verse 2)
Here I'm still fading
A little out of control
But with new words I'm saying
I'm here and I'm staying
And won't go home

July was sad
Full of lies
So we set deadlines
For our lives
But what has changed?
We're too far out of range

(chorus)

(bridge)
No, no, just not enough time...
No, no, just not enough life...
Just not enough...
Even when I'm gone
We'll still be there!

(solo)

(chorus)

(bridge)
