Bruce Springsteen Magic Lyrics

Last updated: 01/30/2009 10:00:00 AM

I got a coin in your palm
I can make it disappear
I got a card up my sleeve
Name it and I'll pull it out your ear
I got a rabbit in the hat
If you wanna come and see
This is what will be
This is what will be

I got shackles on my wrists
Soon I'll slip and I'll be gone
Chain me in a box in the river
And rising in the sun
Trust none of what you hear
And less of what you see
This is what will be (This is what will be)
This is what will be

[Instrumental]

(I'll cut you in half)

I got a shiny saw blade (a shiny saw blade)
All I need's a volunteer
I'll cut you in half
While you're smilin' ear to ear
And the freedom that you sought
Driftin' like a ghost amongst the trees
This is what will be
This is what will be (This is what will be)

Now there's a fire down below
But it's coming up here
So leave everything you know
Carry only what you fear
On the road the sun is sinkin' low
Bodies hanging in the trees
This is what will be (This is what will be)
This is what will be

Metaphores for Freedom | Reviewer: Susan Giese | 11/19/2007

Bruce Springsteen' s CD MAGIC is a strong
and true WAKE-UP call for us all: Want to
live? Get the message. Want to die? Stay
in the dark. At 74 years old, I cannot thank
Mr. Springsteen and the E Street Band and
all involved, enough for their courageous style
in this CD. Over the ages, many poets, writers
and bards have been tortured, imprisoned
and murdered for using lessor metaphores
in their works than he has used in "Magic".
Mr. Springsteen has thrown caution, and
perhaps his life and career, to the winds.
Let's not kid ourselves, he did it for his own
AND for us. "These are dark times." TODAY
is the day! Another generation must WAKE\
UP and YELL; I hear you, Let's rock, 'n ROLL
