Charlie

You were in your teens Charlie when they let you down
Tell them what you want to be and theyíll come around
They could never understand your misdirection sleight of hand

Dropping out of school Charlie itís another world
You could even find yourself with a pretty girl
Until she becomes unhappy that youíre pulling rabbits out of hats

Making it alright Charlie, youíre doing it all wrong
And you canít believe whatís going down
Keeping it all out makes it easier I know
But if magicís all that can move you, no one knows how to love you now

You got to get a job Charlie, whatíre you gonna do?
Are they gonna let you know what they think of you?
Stay at home and conjure up a special friend, a change of luck

Losing your mind you can find yourself floating on the moon and stars,
Youíre never coming down

Nothing ever goes Charlie like you want it to
Now thereís only one more trick left for you to do
In your twenty second year you made your whole world disappear

Making it alright Charlie, youíre doing it all wrong
And you canít believe whatís going down
Keeping it all out makes it easier I know
But if magicís all that can move you, no oneĎs gonna believe you

Throwing it all out Charlie, you never could belong
Just like everybody youíve ever known
Keeping them all out makes it easier I know
But if magicís all that can move you, theyíre never gonna believe you now
