I had a magic that could sing
Maybe I took her from her mother too early
'Cause she never came out of recovery

Even on summer days she'd complain
She couldn't take the chill out of her bones
Maybe I took her from her mother too early
I put her outside in the sunshine

All the rabbits died for supper tonight
All the rabbits died in the spotlight

I had a magic that would sing
& boy oh boy was she a pretty thing
By some great mystery she looked to me
Like she was wearing thin

Are you fading away magic
Are you fading away
Are you fading in the spotlight!

Are you fading away magic
Are you fading away all the rabbits died
Are you fading away in the spotlight
Are you fading my magic rabbit!

    General CommentThis song really is haunting...

    If I were to guess by the lyrics, I'd say she's singing about her mother forcing her into the spotlight because of her "magic that sings"

    Her mother was cruel, and would complain that her voice "never came out of recovery" because as a child she wouldn't focus on singing.

    She felt an emptiness, her mother forced her into the world/spotlight "put her outside in the sunshine"

    But she like a helpless little rabbit "died in the spotlight"

    Lyric CorrectionI had a magic that would sing
    Maybe I took her from her mother too early
    She never came out of recovery

    Even on summer days she'd complain
    She couldn't take the chill out of her bones
    Maybe I took her from her mother too early
    I put her outside in the sunshine

    All the rabbits died for supper tonight
    All the rabbits died in the spotlight

    I had a magic that would sing
    And boy oh boy was she a pretty thing
    By some great mystery
    She looked to me like she was wearing thin

    Are you fading away, magic...?
    Are you fading away?
    Are you fading away?
    (All the rabbits died)
    Are you fading in the spotlight?

    Are you fading away, magic...?
    Are you fading away?
    All the rabbits died
    Are you fading away in the spotlight?
    Are you fading, my magic rabbit?

    Magic, oh...
    Are you fading away, magic?
    Are you fading away?
    Rabbit, rabbit
    Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit
