"Waiting For Magic" as written by and Buddha,-/joker,-....
Kiss me baby I am snow white sleeping in a coffin
Waiting for you - waiting for magic
Baby I am snow white sleeping in a coffin
Waiting for you - waiting for magic

A man of the world but lost in a dream
You look at something from a different angle
But I exist I'm waiting for you
In a coffin made of glass

Kiss me baby I'm attractive
Baby get to know me
Show who you are
Give me that magic
Baby I'm eternal
Lying in a coffin
Waiting for you

In your dream a girl is dancing close to you (that girl is me)
Once a witch made her sleep but a prince will wake her up that's you

Kiss me baby
In the tale is the place to find her
Reach out to get to know her
It means so much to me
The meaning of the book

Oh, kiss me baby wake me up
Oh, kiss me baby wake me up
Join the story of the fairytale
Believe the dream you will not fail
Oh, kiss me baby wake me up

Kiss me baby
Waiting for magic it's what I do
Waiting for magic for me and you
Oh, kiss me baby wake me up

Caught in a dream how lucky you are
You can see me I'm the girl behind you
So open your eyes and turn around
And watch me dancing join the fairy tales

Kiss me baby
You cannot reach her on the planet
That scientist want to call earth
But if you use your imagination
You will see her
You will find her in your dreams

I see no shadows in my dreams
It is something so romantic
I can tell it's for real you'll see

    General CommentThis song is the best ever! At first it may seem a bit weird, but if you look deeper you will find it has a lot of meaning. It's about loving somebody who doesn't realise who you really are and hoping they will look deeper and find you. Have a listen and tell us what you feel!

    General CommentWhy is it that this is the only version of the lyrics I can find on the net, and it doesn't match the song on my album?

    General CommentThis song plays with themes of Sleeping Beauty and enchantment but it can be taken further - to ideas of eternal recurrence, resurrection from the dead and the power of sublimated desire searching for the eternal feminine...all happening on the dance floor, or in the virtual discotheque of your mind.

    Gotta love the Ace of Base. There is haunting melancholy in their lyrics, and depth to their songs under a seemingly superficial surface. Very Nietzschean - but also Christian...in a Nordic sort of way.

    Link(s)Still listening. Still grooving. Still waiting for her to wake up. Still waiting for magic.
    Still waiting for the Resurrection...
