"Magic" as written by Phillipa Margaret Brown and Pascal Richard Marcel Gabriel....
You came to my show
And I saw you in the crowd
I didn't know your name
I didn't know your name

I asked all my friends who you were
And your story
They told me the same
They told me the same

I left my heart to you but it's not fair
'Cause you're taking me for granted, baby
I made a stone with you but it's not fair
'Cause you're over me and land it, baby

One journey for you but it's worth it
One life and with me and it's magic
One journey for you but it's worth it
One life and with me and it's magic

You stayed at my head
While I saw you all the time
I didn't think you care
I didn't think you care

I fought you all day
With a mouth full of attitude
You stole my away
You stole my away

I left my heart to you but it's not fair
'Cause you're taking me for granted, baby
I made a stone with you but it's not fair
'Cause you're over me and land it, baby

One journey for you but it's worth it
One life and with me and it's magic
One journey for you but it's worth it
One life and with me and it's magic

'Cause you're over me and land it, baby
'Cause you're taking me for granted, baby
'Cause you're over me and land it, baby

One journey for you but it's worth it
One life and with me and it's magic
One journey for you but it's worth it
One life and with me and it's magic

One journey for you but it's worth it
One life and with me and it's magic
One journey for you but it's worth it
One life and with me and it's magic

One journey for you but it's worth it
One life and with me and it's magic
One journey for you but it's worth it
One life and with me and it's magic

    Song MeaningI love this song, catchy unique sound and ladyhawke's voice is epic! The song sounds like your typical case of unrequited love. She fell for someone hard but the feelings weren't returned, something I think everyone has experienced and a common song topic.

    General CommentIt's clearly about a long distance relationship i.e: "You're over the atlantic". She's unsatisfied and needs reassuarance from the dude but she just isn't getting it, probably because he doesn't think they ARE in a relationship. It's in her head.

    General CommentTo me it's not even about a relationship; it's all about unrequited attraction. She has feelings for him, but he really only wants to shag and dash. She met this guy who was obviously from out of town, and she was interested right away, letting her attraction cloud the fact that he didn't feel the same way. Like you said, it's all in her head.

    One journey for you and it's worth it- The journey for him is that he's on vacation and he'd score with the girl in the band. A vacation well worth it, he'd say!
    One journey for me and it's magic- The journey for her is that this guy from out of town falls for her, and they'd get to be together; a nice, magical, happy ending.

    I could have written this song, it perfectly captures my experience with a guy who was over the Atlantic. He was nice and my mind wandered, but in the end he was just a guy on vacation. Man, guys can be real assholes sometimes. But Ladyhawke is great and her album is amazing. Go buy it now.

    General CommentWould agree with Newk_84 on this one - this song is very unique in it is about a long distance relationship. She clearly captures the essence of the experience with a beautiful song with perfect arrangements.

    General CommentIs she saying 'over me and land it' or 'over the Atlantic'. I've always heard the latter, although what would she actually mean by that, being a Kiwi? She would have to be in either North America or Europe for it to make sense.
