have you got any magic tricks
that will work for me?

'cause my baby is in the ground
and she won't come back now

the lights in the sky are practically blue hot white
the light in my eye is so sharp it cuts the blue right out

have you got any magic tricks that will work for me?
i don't suppose there's anything at all in that bag of yours for me

'cause my baby is in the ground
and she's not coming back now.

    General Commentgoing to a magic man out of desperation, looking for something to raise the dead?

    I'm going to agree and say literal as well, the sadness speaks volumes in this tune.
