Oh oh oh its magic
You know never believe its not so
Its magic, You know never believe its not so
Never been awake, never seen a daybreak
Leaning on my pillow in the morning
Lazy day in bed
Music in my head
Crazy music playing in the morning light
Oh oh oh its magic
You know never believe its not so
Its magic
You know never believe its not so
I love my sunny day
Dream of far away
Dreaming on my pillow in the morning light
Never been awake, never seen a daybreak
Leaning on my pillow in the morning light
Oh oh oh its magic
You know never believe its not so
Its magic
You know never believe its not so
Guitar break
Oh oh oh its magic
You know never believe its not so
Its magic
You know never believe its not sooo
Never believe
