Come take my hand
You should know me
I've always been in your mind
You know I will be kind
I'll be guiding you

Building your dream
Has to start now
There's no other road to take
You won't make a mistake
I'll be guiding you

You have to believe we are magic
Nothing can stand in our way
You have to believe we are magic
Don't let your aim ever stray
And if all your hopes survive
Destiny will arrive

I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you
I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you

From where I stand
You are home free
The planets align so rare
There's promise in the air
And I'm guiding you

Through every turn I'll be near you
I'll come anytime you call
I'll catch you when you fall
I'll be guiding you

You have to believe we are magic
Nothing can stand in our way
You have to believe we are magic
Don't let your aim ever stray
And if all your hopes survive
Destiny will arrive

I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you
I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you

Hey, you have to believe we are magic
Nothing can stand in our way
Have to believe we are magic
Don't let your aim ever stray
And if all your hopes survive
Destiny will arrive

I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you
I'll bring all your dreams alive
For you

    It reads like a persons self-esteem pushing them onward toward greater things. Not to be afraid to move forward in life, not to be afraid to fail. However, the esotericist in me thinks the song is about a spirit guide. Read it again and put it in the context of a spirit guide or guardian angel. I'm right, huh?

    This is the simple lesson in life. Negative thinking distorts or disturbes the guidances of the monad so that your aim does str, wasting your time with countless imaginings unimportant to the destiny. Once you realize and quietr these fuckjed up fraudulent motherfuckers inside your head. And if your not dead, then listen to this bitch. She talks some ggod shit eh.

    Basically, no matter the perceived results that YOU see, if you continue to persevere without giving up and you keep you dreams and aspirations alive no matter how humble or bold they will come true by the will of god our innermost. Its how it has been written and its how it shall be sold.

    It has a very special meaning in my life because I had a weird experience while listening to it by mistake. That is all I can really say.

    This is not a song about positive or negative thinking, but rather about magical thinking. The singer rejects reality, as "Nothing can stand in our way." This song is about a couple who hopes to find eternal love through magical thinking, and ignoring the truth. It is mostly about a fantasy woman who will always catch the man before he falls, who will come whenever he calls, who will bring all his dreams alive. Unless, of course, she gets breast cancer or befalls some other reality....

    My Interpretation

    Love the song! I used to think it was about a special, romantic relationship implying that this fantasy woman actually exists ( "have to believe we are magic....make all your dreams alive"). The part about "make your dreams come true" makes me think of a sexual fantasy happening (sorry but being a man I can't help it plus which Olivia's beautiful and sexy voice it seems like a common reaction (for a man)).

    Now, I think the song is more about a spiritual connection. Maybe the physical aspects are there too but as I've learned over many years, the special friendship, support and love that come into relationships is what the "magic" is all about.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
