Magic In You

I was walking downtown on a lonely afternoon.

You see I lost my job and I didn't know what to do. 

Everybody said, "You gotta make money!" 

But I had to go sing my song like a bee needs honey


So I asked a friend, ”Tell me the truth."

“What shall I do ... with my life?”

And this is what she said


The Magic In You, will save your life today

But sometimes you gotta lose everything before you find your way

Use the Magic In You, don't worry 'bout tomorrow 

Cuz you aint' got nothing but today, anyway


So I stopped by the mirror and took a good look at my face

I just couldn't find happy running 'round like a rat in a race

Somebody tell me why, it's all about the dollar

When all I wanna be is me, it makes me wanna holla


So I asked a friend, "Tell me the truth."

"What shall I do ... with my life?"

And this is what she said


The Magic In You, will save your life today

But sometimes you gotta lose everything before you find your way

Use the Magic In You, don't worry 'bout tomorrow 

Cuz you aint' got nothing but today, anyway


So I closed my eyes and saw the truth

The fortune you seek is in you, is in you!


The Magic In You, will save your life today

But sometimes you gotta lose everything before you find your way

Use the Magic In You, don't worry 'bout tomorrow 

Cuz you aint' got nothing but today, anyway
