Love has become our new magic
For each other we all perform
We pray the next is different
We always find out it’s a trick

Yet, stupid with astonishment
Desperate to know the secret
& against all admonishment
We still beg for enlightenment

Whether we’re shown or being told
The secret is always revealed
& so it changes how we feel
That magic grows tired & old

In fact that trick now makes us sick
Spinning spiral of the tragic
Nevermore, will it be the same
We only got ourselves to blame

Human hearts need to be deceived
It makes them beat & still believe
In miracles, through which they feed
But stories; absent tragedies
