lyrics;
   tracey:
don't drag me down
just because you're down
and just cause you're blue
don't make me too
and though you've found
you need more than me
don't talk to me
about being free
that's freedom without love
and magic without love
magic without love
hear me say
better things will surely come our way
hear me say
better things will surely come our way
you say the magic's gone
well i'm not a magician
you say the spark's gone
well get an electrician
and save your line about needing to be free
all that's bullshit babe
you just want rid of me
you want freedom without love
and magic without love
magic without love
yeah
hear me say
better things will surely come my way
hear me say
better things will surely come my way
