[Verse 1]
Yeah, girl, I guess I'm looking for love
Yeah, sure, I'm different, but, tell me who's not
And yeah I got a - I got a critical mind
Yeah, I got a microscope on everything in front of my eyes
And yeah, I got a criminal side
And yeah, I'm a saint, but I don't worship a God
And yeah, I'm amazing, but I'm lacking the confidence
I need me a queen to hold me up when I'm falling
Yeah, I need me a partner who can hold my hand
I need a companion, who can push me and pull me and mold me
Help me become a better man
Help me calm the hurricane in my soul
Rejuvenate me, I know - call a cab and get going
Yeah, monogamy is boring, that shit's for the forties
Yeah, I guess time went too fast
And it took with it any feeling of magic 'cause
I don't see stars, I see balls of gas
I don't see love, I see a reason to mash and pass genetics
To reproduce, so let's just
Face it and confess that
Most of how we view ourselves is just imagined
To cover up the fact we're just animals who actively
Deny it, so we feel we have purpose in our actions
When it's all probably chaos, purposeless reactions
And we impose meaning, 'cause the alternative is sad to us
I bet
That's what I bet

[Chorus]
'Cause I got a
I got a critical mind
Yeah, I got a microscope on everything in front of my eyes
And yeah, I got a criminal side
And yeah, I'm a saint, but I don't worship a God
And yeah, I'm amazing, but I'm lacking the confidence
I need me a queen to hold me up when I'm falling

[Verse 2]
Yeah, sure, I guess I'm looking for love
I guess I got a place for someone there above my gut
In my heart, I gotta spot, untouched
That still sees the magic through the zeros and ones
And I'm saving it
A little place for the maybe, the someday, the lady
With a heart like a sunray
Warmer than the weather outside when when it's 9PM
And it's the middle of the summer, and it's alright to swim
And it's all like a 10
On the scale of life
Like our dreams eclipsed everything for a night
And that's where you are
Somewhere caught in a dream
Someone far from my logic that eats
Everything that I believe in, I've saved you a piece
And a spot right here, right next to me
As my queen, my partner, my best friend
And when she meets me, she'll put it like this
Yeah you got a

[Chorus]
You got a critical mind
And yeah, you got a microscope on everything in front of your eyes
And yeah, you got a criminal side
And no, you're not a saint, but yes, you worship a God
And no you're not amazing, but you could be all of that
I can help you grow, I can help you be confident
I can help you cope, help you be who you want and then
We can grow old and joke around about all of this
We can play this song just reminisce
Holding hands in front of grand kids
Feeling like, wow, what I life we lived
And I'm proud of the person I spent it with

Magic
